Bruce Gordon's Rock n Road Ordered
« on: June 06, 2005, 07:06:14 pm »
Just ordered a Rock n Road 26 from Bruce Gordon.  I looked and read a lot about other bikes that are out there but I kept going back to Bruce's web page.  All I heard were statements  like "Bruce Gordon makes great bikes" and  "if you buy a Gordon bike, you will not be sorry."  I heard concerns about dealing with the man.  I spent about an hour ordering the bike and I could not have asked for a more pleasant conversation. I have called him 3 times in the past month and every conversation was pleasant.  Not a harsh word.  NADAONE!!  
I also ordered his panniers.  I am very hesitant to do that but he advised "if you don't like em, return em."  Good enough!

Out of sheer curiosity, how long will it take to get your bike produced?!?! Or how long did it take?!?!

I'm thinking of calling him soon (in early November), as soon as I'm sure all my ducks are in a row, and ordering the same bike--and panniers. But mine will be a 700c. And just FYI, the way I look at it, he wouldn't put crappy panniers on one of his bikes. 'Just too much pride in what he does--from what I can discern.

Folks, its been a while since I have checked this page but I'll post a couple of answers anyway.  It took about 2 months to get the bike, just like Bruce said.  How do I like the bike?  I am very pleased.  Everything except the saddle, that is.  I took it on a 14 day, 800 mile ride and have no complaints at all.  The workmanship is top notch.  Not fancy and flashy but a strong, nice riding bike.
I did not get Bruce's panniers.  I went with Orteib with no regrets.
