Albert Mercado’s signature line of GT BMX bikes is revamped for 2021, and here is the Team model – the £399 complete bike. From the graphics, to the colours (just check out that wild two-tone fade paint job!), to the spec list, it’s full of input from Albert so you know you’re getting a dialed bike right out of the box.
For starters, you get Albert’s trademark frame geo and build, with a trimoly frame, 2pc bar, topload stem, 3pc Chromoly cranks – and also note that these bikes are set up with left-side drive, so if you grind on the right, this is the setup for you. With GT Pivotal seat set-up, 25:9 gearing, mid-range complete BMX bikes under four-hundred notes don’t come any better than this… check the specs of the all-new GT Team Mercado below.
