NEWS from Bruce Gordon Cycles

Happy Fourth of July to all in the USA.
I am just here to make a blog post -then off for a Bike Ride.


I finished the stem for my new lugged Rock 'n Road frame.  There is only one other Lugged Rock 'n Road frame in existence - I made it for myself 26 years ago. (pictured below)



I'm making progress - the Lugs are done


The finished bike will be part of the BAMF Show in Highpoint North Carolina in September.  
       Then I don't have to make another for another 26 years.


News about Rock 'n Road Tires
There is another shipment of tires that will ship from Japan this month.
Unfortunately Panaracer has raised the price a little after almost 3 years - so the new shipment of tires will have to cost $52 each which is an increase of $2 per tire.

The good news is that the remaining stock is at the current price of $50 each - so get them while they last!!


More News about Tires.
There is a mould being made for a 650b x 43 Rock 'n Road tire being made with the exact same tread pattern.  I should have samples in time for Interbike in Las Vegas.  Production tires should be available around the end of the year.  They will have a "Tube Less Compatible" bead.

Other Tire related News.
We are jumping into the 21st Century - The first 650b "Gravel Grinder" Rock 'n Road bike will not only be tubeless - but, will be DI2 (Electronic Shifting).
Also Stan's is going to roll up some 650b versions of their new rim - http://www.notubes.com/Grail-C159.aspx

Enough news for now - I'm going to eat lunch and go for a bike ride, then watch some fireworks - It is after all July 4th

Regards,

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

Sorry, but prices must rise after 6 years


I have put this off as long as I could, but prices must rise due to the increases of everything.  
My prices have been the same for over 6 years.  I will be increasing the price on bikes and racks by about 10% on February 1st 2014.  If anyone has been on the fence about getting one of my bikes or racks - now is the time.  The price on orders received before February 1st will be at the Old Prices.  Right now the delivery time on Rock 'n Road bikes is about 8 to 12 weeks - but that changes according to the number of orders.

The only items that will have the price increases are Bikes, Frames, and Racks.



The Sale on Tires Continues Until After New Years Day!


There is still "Free Shipping" on the 2 tire - 3 Innertube deal until the end of 2013

Happy Holidays

Paul Shin sent me this photo and caption
"I tried it in reverse and it seemed to be a bit better grinding uphill. By the way, the tire's been dubbed Rock n Snow'd, as it handles the white fluffy stuff just fine."

A great way to Wish Everyone a Great Holiday Season from Bruce Gordon Cycles
