On June 7, bicycle framebuilder, tire innovator, and all-around craftsman Bruce Gordon died unexpectedly at age 70. Bicycling and Bicycle Retailer and Industry News both published obituaries in the days following his passing. The stories highlight the large role Gordon played in the world of handbuilt bicycles. Both are worth a read to grasp the scope of his work and influence.

While I never had the chance to meet Gordon in person, I had access to one of his bikes that is housed in The Pro's Closet Bike Museum. To pay tribute to him, let's take a closer look at this 30-year-old bike and hear the story behind it from its first owner. ... RzhxIn0%3D
