Tenth in a series of Bruce Gordon's Personal Bikes

In keeping with the posts on my Touring Bikes.
I built a Loaded Touring Mountain Bike for myself in August 1985.  This was the first of my Mountain Touring Bike which I built and took to Crested Butte Colorado for the Mountain Bike Festival.




Me - riding through a stream in Crested Butte


Me - trying to sell some "Cosmic Whirls" in Crested Butte


The Specifics on the frame - 60cm Frame (center to center), 61cm Top Tube, 70 degree Head Angle, 72 degree Seat Angle, 45cm Chainstays,  4cm Bottom Bracket Drop, and 5cm Fork Rake.  It has Columbus SP Tubing & Tange Chainstays and Fork Blades.  Shimano SFR Dropouts (I would love to find more - if someone has them), and Japanese Lugs (with my Traditional Asymmetrical Hole Design) and a Japanese Bottom Bracket.


As for parts - they are a mixture of parts from Shimano, Specialized, Sun Tour, Campagnolo, and Salsa Cycles
Specialized Rims & Ground Control tires



The Original Salsa Stem with a roller (If it ain't Moto - it is Worthless) 



Sun Tour RollerCam brakes - licensed from WTB who made the originals.
