Throwback Thursday: Patrick Reynoso, 2014

We’re going back to December of 2014 with this photo of Patrick Reynoso riding the S-Works Enduro 650b in the mountains near Pasadena, California. The clouds were starting to lift above the hills, while Patrick was riding with his usual flair and style. (Photo by John Ker/MBA)

Throwback Thursday: The Rayvolt Cruzer

We were going through one of our collections of photos from a few years back, and this one caught us by surprise. It’s a picture of a Rayvolt Cruzer, a Spanish e-bike that is made to look like a classic motorcycle of the early 1900s. We shot this in September of 2018, and , as […]

Throwback Thursday: Hans Rey in the Italian Alps, June 2008

MBA got to travel to Italy for the UCI World Championships in June of 2008 and check out the newest GT bikes while there. The Worlds were held in June that year, which was earlier than normal, because of the Olympics coming up later in the summer. That turned out to be the same Olympic […]

Throwback Thursday: Whistler, B.C., Summer 2015

Brett Tippie leads Richie Schley on one of their favorite mountain bike trails in Whistler, British Columbia,  well outside of the city’s famous bike park.

He was one of our test riders in those days. He’s the founder and CEO of DVO Suspension now. Susan DeMattei (left) took the women’s XC national title for […]

Throwback Thursday: Kirt Voreis and Steve Peat, April 2008

We’re going back to April 19, 2008, with this one. It was one of the coldest dual slalom races we’ve ever seen at the Sea Otter, but the action was as hot as usual. That’s Kirt Voreis on the inside line and Steve Peat on the outside line. If you check the specators, a lot […]

GT’s First Full-Suspension Bike – It’s Not What You Think – Video

By Zap Although the Jim Busby designed RTS-1 is widely considered the first full-suspension bike to come out of the GT Bicycle headquarters, that’s really only half-right.  Recently, Gary Turner himself (as in the GT of GT Bikes) rediscovered an ancient BMX bike build that he created back in 1974.
