Update 7/8/17


This is an Update from 7/8/17
First I want to thank all the people who have posted positive things about Bruce Gordon Cycles.

I am 69 years old and it is time to retire

My first choice would be to sell Bruce Gordon Cycles and have it continue as is and is priced to achieve my first choice.  More on that later in the post.

My plans have changed many times in the last 2 months - this is my latest plan.

I have paid the July rent.  I am planning to have a Bruce Gordon Cycles Sale early in August.
At that time I will sell 45 years worth of bike stuff I have accumulated at prices between 30% & 50% Off or More.   (Except the Rock 'n Road tires which will remain at the current prices)
Inculded in the sale will be Current Parts, Jerseys, as well as many Older Parts too many to mention here.

Included will be 10 or more Bikes that are on display at my Showroom.

My first choice would be to sell Bruce Gordon Cycles complete and have the shop and Bruce Gordon products continue.  Included in the Sale Price would be All the Tools, Bruce Gordon Products (except the tires),  and my Collecion of all 37 bikes I have built for myself since 1974 (seen in photo below), a showroom, repair station, powder coating setup, a 4000 square foot shop and a lease and $50,000 in inventory.
The price will be $250,000 Firm - it has been valued at between $750,000 and $1,400,000 for everything.  More on that at a later time.
Regards,
Bruce Gordon

First Ride in 10 Months & New Trike



This is my New Catrike.
It has been 10 months since my accident - I may never ride a 2 wheel bike - my balance is gone.  But I have decided that riding a Recumbent Trike has settled my balance problem.  So I bought one Made in the USA - it is a Cartrike.  I want to thank Catrike's David Whitmer & the shop who put it together Laid Back Cycles.
I rode the trail that I had my accident on - It was Great, not all that scary.

More Later.

Update from Bruce Gordon Cycles





It has been since the middle of August 2016 when I had my slow speed bike accident, broke my kneecap and my last post.
I’ve gone from a wheelchair to a walker to a cane, and I think I’m going to use the cane for the rest of my life.

So – what is the future of Bruce Gordon Cycles?

I’m slowing down and thinking about retiring in a few years.  But, for now I’m back at work (Slowly) and am thinking I will make 3 or 4 bikes a year.  Rock ‘n Road tires are shipped out the same day the orders arrive, as well as other products we have on our onlinestore website.


The bikes will be built to measure and take some time – Please give me a call at the shop to discuss your needs.

Regards,
Bruce Gordon
