The GT limited warranty goes into effect as soon as a bike is purchased from an Authorized GT Bicycle Retailer and only applies to the original owner of a GT bike. For a warranty claim to be considered, the bicycle must be brought to an Authorized GT Bicycle Retailer. The bike must be assembled and accompanied by the original sales receipt.
