GT has been on a streak re-releasing some modern versions of their classic parts, including the Power Series cranks, GT LP-5 (logo) tire, 4-piece Original bars, and now the 1985 inspired Performer 2-piece bars. Like a few of the re-releases, the Performer bars maintain the original styling--and stickers--but offer modern day geometry, build quality and most importantly reliability. Essentially as GT says, "Classic looks of yesterday built with the technology of today." If the classic Performer stickers aren't your style, don't worry, GT includes an extra sticker to swap onto the cross bar, or stick anywhere you'd like! So if you’re in the market--or just browsing--for a unique looking 2-piece bar option and you like the strength of the single piece top bar design then give the GT Performer bars a closer look.
