The Pinhead component locks are installed on the front wheel, rear wheel, seat and fork/stem assembly (headset) of these bicycles, and locks these components to the bicycle frame.

"Our adoption of Pinhead wheel and seat locks on our commuter 'Traffic' models provides the consumer with security and safety for these major bike components, and adds value to our products. Theft of bike components is a growing problem. The consumer needs this protection. We chose the best product and a company committed to quality."

Linda Young, Pinhead CEO, Edmonton, Canada

"It has long been one of our major goals to see Pinhead products as standard equipment on new bicycles. We are especially pleased that this has happened with GT, one of the world's most successful bike brands, and an industry leader in quality and innovation.

"Bicycle theft is a big issue for commuters in major cities. Many of these people must leave their bike exposed every day. In many cities now, if they can't steal the bike, they'll steal the parts. Given so much focus on security, sometimes the safety benefits of our products are overlooked. For example, our wheel locks ensure that your child's bicycle wheels have not been tampered with, or loosened. Our products add safety, as well as security, over other wheel, seat and headset fastening methods."
