How can GT not be cool they constantly tried to push the boundaries whether it was needed or not (read successful or not). Triple Triangle, RST, LTS/STS, Lobo, I-drive etc

Where GT go not everyone follows as a lot of times it’s an evolutionary dead end but that’s what makes them interesting.

They will never be boutique cool but in my book are the epitome of blue collar cool.

US built 6061 Zaskar is cool, RTS too. Psyclone is nice, but there are steel framed bikes I'd rather (and do) own.

Early low end stuff with their funky paint jobs are also cool.

Due to the wide range of models, plenty have just been average, but enough good stuff was made BITD for the brand to be cool (but not since 1998).

I always thought GT was Vauxhall to Kona's Ford :wink:

Not cool.

Reasons stated in many threads long ago.

Like the Vauxhal comparison.

Agree with the Vauxhall comment.....

Main stream, everywhere, middle of the road.

But, is the brand GT cool? 8)

Could you ride down the road, for the local kids to go 'cool, a GT!' ?

My vote is, the brand itself is mediocre, but certain models raised the bar.
