Looking for a GT Performer complete bike, but with a slightly shorter frame instead? Well, let’s check out the new Performer 20.5 right here. GT is back with one of the most iconic names in BMX, the Performer – and, as the name suggests, this version has a 20.5″ toptube. Simple.
The Performer is of THE original freestyle bikes has evolved massively and improved along the way, into this, the all-new 2021 bike. For just under £350 you have a setup that is dialed as it gets – there are two colour options for starters: choose either trans blue with black parts – or the orange Boxpalm collab model with graphics by Albert Mercado, all matched with a host of prime GT BMX parts throughout.
This bike features that 20.5″ toptube, 13.2″ short back end, 75º head angle, steel frame and forkset – this bike is designed and built for the skatepark and street spot and everything in between – finished with GT bars, a top-load stem and GT’s Supersoft mushroom grips: truly, this bike feels great from the outset. Also, the orange Boxpalm bike comes built with GT OG 4pc bars, for that extra spice.
When you see the cromoly 3pc cranks, 25:9 gearing, 2.3″ GT LP5 logo tires (with that slick sidewall making grinds fast and predictable), sealed Mid BB and more all a bike costing just £349… you know that the Performer 20.5 is all set.
