June 2007 Decline Magazine

As we approach the 11th anniversary of Richard Long's passing, an interesting story just came out. If you have not seen it, the June 2007 issue of Decline Magazine has a nice 6-page piece called The History of GT Bicycles. As a mountain bike magazine, the story makes significant mention - including plenty of photos - of all the mountain bike athletes that help brand GT so clearly through the late 80's, 90's and beyond. However, it is not limited to just 26" fat tire events as it chronologically paints a relatively clear and accurate time line of the company's history in BMX, including the early days when Richard and Gary Turner first met, as well as some of the events that lead to its irreversible downfall after Richard was so suddenly killed. It's good reading. Kudos to H3 Publications and the Decline Magazine editorial staff for telling the story, as well as all those who provided insight and images (Bob Allen, Chris Hatounian, Gibey and the rest.)
