GT - Carbon
Can someone please help me refresh my memory on GT? I remember they were sold to a larger company and the brand had fallen on hard times after trying to sell bikes in big box stores. Are they owned by the company that owns Schwinn? - Also I thought I had heard a rumor about some quality engineers working to rebuild the GT name. I have seen the TargetTraining team sponsored Alum bikes at some of my races. Looks like they are going with Carbon for 07 - Just wondering about the possible re-surgence of a once successful American brand. I remember Andrei Tchmeil on these bikes on the Lotto team in the 90's. Any of your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sure all the bikes will be made in Taiwan like everybody else.

I used to have one of the first nine speed Ultegra GT bikes, the Course. It was a bit of a tank, but it rode well (Reynolds 853).

I don't remember exactly but I do know that a few of there top designers and a large amount of production became Felt.
