New Updated Brick & Mortar Store Front

     Well, we've been busy here at Bruce Gordon Cycles over the last couple of weeks. Today we just built three new shelves in our display room and are pondering whose merchandise we would like to show to our customers.  Below is a list of companies that we already endorse and sell their products, but we thought it would be nice if we got a little feed back from the fans on what kind of bicycle brands you would like to buy off our shelves! We have a few admirable stipulations though...  Companies must make their components/products in their own factories. Companies pay their employees decent wages, and very importantly the product must be high quality and stylish. We understand that products like these are harder to come by these days, but hey thats what Bruce Gordon Cycles is all about, Sustainable Quality.

Winters Coming Soon, Are You Ready?

Hey everybody, we're officially back in the shop from a whirlwind of shows around the country! So, as you can imagine we've turned the machines back on and are milling as you read... 

Well the BIG NEWS this year is about our very own, Rock 'n Road Tires.  This year we're getting 650b tubeless compatible tires in both Black and Skin-wall colors, the same colors as our 700x43 models. They have been ordered and are expected to arrive in December.  In case you've never had the joy of riding our 43mm wide all surface tire, you truly are missing out.  They are exactly that, a joy.  In fact they shine like no other tires we've ridden. (assuming we cleaned them after we ride) 

FAIR WARNING though, this Saturday we'll be increasing our tire price to $57 - so order now while the gettin' is good, and get ready for winter today!

Now With Free Shipping Within The USA On All Tire Orders

Thanks to Mike Varley from Black Mountain Cycles for putting together this years di2 hydraulic disc 650b x 43 Rock n' Road Monster Cross that we displayed at Interbike this week. It was a huge success and a great time down in Las Vegas.  But, just like every other year it means that the time to hit the drawing board has arrived.

Who wants a 650b x 43 Bruce Gordon Gravel Grinder that will be show at Interbike 2014???



I am jumping into the 21st Century.

We will be showing a Bruce Gordon Rock 'n Road Gravel Grinder at the Interbike Show in
Las Vegas in September.

It will have the first tubeless 650b x 43 Rock 'n Road tires on 650b Stan's Grail Tubeless Rims
Custom rolled for the show.

Parts will be a Shimano Ultegra group with Hydraulic Disc Brakes with STI levers for disc brakes and it will be Electronic Shifting DI2.

I am going to cut the tubes late next week - So if someone wants it their size, I need to know right away.  I am offering the bike at a discount.  It will be $5000 if someone orders it before I cut the tubes.
After the show, a bike with this kind of setup will be close to $6000.  Anyone interested please give me  call.

Regards,
Bruce Gordon

Bruce Gordon Panniers in Stock


 

As the title says - I have 3 Sets of Bruce Gordon Cycles Panniers in Stock.
This is rare, because they usually take 8 to 12 weeks to have made.  They have a Super Mounting System that fits only on our racks - Sorry they do not fit other racks.   All other panniers available have mounting systems that try to fit all racks - so - they don't fit any racks exactly.  The best mounting system I could come up with is to make the system fit only our racks.

They are available at the Current Prices - $325 per racks worth.
On February 1, 2014 the price will rise about 10% along with the pricing on frames, bikes & racks.

So, if you have been thinking of getting some - now is the time.  You get them at the current price, and they are in stock for immediate delivery!!!

www.bgcycles.com/panniers.html  (Still trying to get our pages to work with Safari - but it all works great with Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer)

Also - Just Arrived - a fresh stock of 700x43 Rock 'n Road Tires with the Black Sidewalls.
I have plenty of Skin Sidewall ones - but, I was down to one Black Sidewall in stock - talk about "Just in Time Inventory".

Regards,
Bruce Gordon
