Merry Christmas from me to me lol. I wanted this for awhile now but it was always sold out, but then I just happened to see a shop online had some in stock so I got one quickly, and they sold out again the next day. They sell out even faster in the Spring/Summer so I figured I better get one while I can, and came along at the perfect time before Christmas, so another great gift from me to me! Lol. I thought they did not come out until 2021 hence the name, but maybe some shops got some early? Also I will be modifying it some with some old school parts like the layback seat post and Dominator seat etc, as I prefer the lighter plastic seat with the longer nose to connect to the bars easier, and what I have ridden with since 1986. Lots more pics to come!

GT 2021 Pro Performer 20" BMX Bike (20.75" Toptube) (White)

The 2021 GT Pro Performer 20" BMX Bike combines a fantastic color scheme with an old school frame design to create an awesome throwback to the good ol' days.

I like it. A lot.

That frame style was my first New Good bike in 1985.

Un-slam that seat post and I'd ride it as-is. I'm glad that didn't make the seat post white... that'd be what they'd've done in 1986 and it was too much.
I like that this retro bike has skinwall tires but I think they're showing too much skin and look like beach cruiser tires. Other than that, I wouldn't change a darned thing.
