The Rock 'n Road Tire is Offically for Sale

Yes, you read that correctly. The Rock 'n Road tire is ready for pre-order. For those that are on our mailing list, you already received the heads up (which is why YOU should sign up for the BG Newsletter, amongst other things). But for the rest of you, consider this your official PSA.

Here are the details -
  • BG Cycles is doing a pre-order special. What that means is you can buy the tire at a reduced rate before it lands in the beginning of June (some time in the first week).
  • The pre-order price is $50/ea with free shipping in the US. Outside of the US? We'll work out a reduced cost option for you.
  • There are only a limited number of these tires available at this price. Get them while you can.

In Other Tire News  

We have had some people ask about clearance for these new tires (43mm X 700c) since they are a little bigger than your average cross tire. To help alleviate an confusion in regards to fitment, we drew up these handy diagrams to help you gauge fitment on your current bike.

Not only do we love the tire, but think it would look great on your own Rock n' Road!

A New Bike, A New Tire, & Some Love From Our Friends

This fillet brazed beauty isn't just another BG bike. It's a bit of a look back in time and a view of the future. You see, back before the 29er movement or the more common Monster Cross bikes, Bruce Gordon Bikes had been building fat tired bikes that were trail capable. And this beautiful red ride is sporting the rereleased Rock 'n Road tire - the original off road tire for 700c bikes.

Now this isn't just a pretty show piece. It has been dropped off with a particular magazine that reviews such things for a long term review of not only the tire, but Bruce's frame design. That's all we can say for now.

Some Love From Our Friends

Our good buddy Stevil over at AHTBM is sporting a set of our new skins and deemed them worthy of a mention:

And we keep being asked - when can we buy tires? Here is the deal - go to, sign up for the newsletter. We're going to be sending out an offer shortly for those willing to pre-order tires. You'll get them before anyone else for less than anyone else. Pretty good deal, 'eh?

Sunday Conversation - Bruce Gordon on the Radio

It's not every day that a frame builder makes it on the radio in any market.
Much less often a guy like Bruce.

The Outspoken Cyclist radio show interviewed Bruce a short time ago. Give it a listen for a bit of Sunday morning entertainment from a guy that's forgotten more about building bikes than most will ever learn.
