Nick, who helps me on these things, put up a post on our blog announcing that we could ship TIGed frames in 3 to 4 weeks, even custom ones.
Some people misinterpreted this post to be an announcement of our demise.
There were posts on several forums with titles like "Bruce Gordon Going Under?" or "Bruce Gordon Cycles in Financial Trouble".
That is simply not the truth - we were announcing that we could deliver frames in a short period of time. Many people think that getting a US made frame from a small shop takes several months or even years.
Nick was trying to inform people who read our blog that they could still get a new frame or bike for the current riding season. In addition, we have many other parts that are made in the USA and available for immediate delivery, such as cantilever brakes, tail lights, strapless toe clips, and our famous racks.
Also, we are closing out the remaining Taiwanese BLT's. We are going back to what we have been doing for the past 35 years - Making neat stuff.
In order the combat those who seem to relish the "demise of Bruce Gordon Cycles," I urge past customers to post experiences with our stuff to their favorite blog, forum or webpage.

The ride was just perfect, and the folks who did it were great. Thanks to every one of you who participated in ABSHWD 2011. We will be hosting more group rides in the future- keep your eyes on the blog and the FB page for more info as we get our ducks in a row and dot the i's and cross the t's.
