I got a really cool interview with Steve Spencer of GT Bikes! In this clip Steve shows me the awesome line of bikes GT had on display at the New England Nationals at T.R.A.C.K. in Trumbull, CT. The bikes that really stuck out to me was the new GT 2013 Interceptor which was built as an do everything “Utility” bike which you can take to the track, trails, skatepark, store or work! Then Steve showed me the retro 26 inch GT Performer in the old school baby blue color. That bike is real dope but it would’ve been really dope if they did a limited edition in a 20″ too. We also checked out the new Power, Pro and Speed series race bikes which all look like fast bikes! After the bike checks Steve talked a little bit about some of the different marketing techniques GT is using to spread the word about their bikes and BMX racing and I gotta say their doing some great things to get the word out 4sho!
One thing is for sure, GT is really doing it big like back in the day for BMX racing. They had a huge setup in vendor’s row, one of the biggest line of racing bikes to choose from and some of the best riders in the game! I wanna give a big shout out to Shannon Gillette for introducing me to Steve and to Steve Spencer for taking the time out to do this interview! Stay tuned for more interviews!
