    RIP Bruce Gordon

    Sad news today that Bruce has passed on to the bike shop in the sky. He was a real character and although they say he had a sense of humor it was drier than a dog's bone but that is what made him the curmudgeon he was.

    Super high end lug work/brazing on lovely frames, high quality racks and even an mtb or two over the years he was a prolific master of the art of frame building that grew from his early contact with the old school techniques of lug work and filet brazing.

    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    NOOOO!

    I met and chatted with him several times at Interbike, a character, and always a nice guy, despite the crusty exterior.

    The world is a lesser place now.....

    Knew him for 30+ years. Can't believe such a wonderful spirit is gone.
