I go back and forth about wanting one of these.

Re: New GT performer 26 for 2017.. looks good

Sorry. 26" and freestyle don't mix in my book. Looks ridiculous.


What I’m selling: https://bmxmuseum.com/forsale/search?user=2547

What I want/need:
Black&Pink A'ME unitron or Oakley B1B; Black Elina Flytetech seat (2)

Interesting, something looks odd on that front fork rake though, idk maybe just the angle viewed.

Re: New GT performer 26 for 2017.. looks good

I like it but I would like skinwall tyres and chrome layback.
Would be good if they made a mallet stem for threadless forks as well.
Also not a fan of water applied decals under clear coat,you might want to put on earlier Performer decals but now you can't....

Re: New GT performer 26 for 2017.. looks good

Pretty cranks. I'd ride it for sure! It'd be cool to do a Wilkerson tribute with one of these. Wheels would be tough.

No thank you. 26" and freestyle is just stupid.

Re: New GT performer 26 for 2017.. looks good

There's nothing freestyle about this bike aside from the retro frame design. No pegs, no front brake, no gyro, comfortable headtube angle. It's just a stylish bike for riding.

It wouldn't be great for vert, it's too big, and it'd be crap for flatland. Get past that. It's still cool.

If it was in a 20' with a Mallet style stem and in pink or blue I would have been all over this.

Re: New GT performer 26 for 2017.. looks good

I've been having a lot of fun cruising around on this one.  This isn't for tricks but casual riding.  I changed a bunch of parts but the stock parts are very nice especially the stock GT seat.

Re: New GT performer 26 for 2017.. looks good

I'd ride that!

Def needs a few parts swap'd out.

Come in Chrome or some sick yellow? Needs some old school style GT Stickers.
