Bruce Gordon is retiring. That’s a sad piece of news. There are a handful of builders who have continued to impress me with their dedication to their craft and their ongoing creativity. Bruce is in my list of the creme de la creme.
His history is inextricably linked to the explosion of frame builders here in California. Trained by Albert Eisentraut and employed by him for many years as his production manager, Bruce is ultra-knowledgeable and has a designer’s eye for lug shaping and decoration.
Here’s the word from Bruce:
“Starting August 19, Bruce Gordon Cycles will be selling off 47 years of cycling history. All bikes, components, racks, frames, wheels, fixtures, and tools will be heavily discounted. The only stuff not being sold at this time is Bruce’s personal collection of bicycles.
New Rock n’ Road tires and new stainless toeclips will be sold at the regular price, but everything else must go. This is a great opportunity to stock up on vintage cycling equipment and help one of the living legends of framebuilding retire. All sales will be by APPOINTMENT ONLY, in person at Bruce Gordon Cycles, on a first-come, first-served basis. Make your appointment today by calling the shop: (707) 762-5601 or Bruce’s cellphone: (707) 762-4107.”
