GT is currently owned by Questor Partners, which also owns Schwinn, but is trying to/is in the process of selling both. GT is still theoretically based in California, but really in Boulder, CO. Giant is a Taiwanese brand, and is the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world. Giant makes about 1/3 of all of the bikes that are made in the far east (Trek, pre-2002 Specialized, Schwinn etc.). Some GT bikes are also made by giant.

I can't think of any major bike companies in Germany, but that doesn't mean there isn't one.

The site is in german, but they carry their own line of bikes. They look oddly similar to Treks, especiall the full suspension...smells like fuel.
