Mark Appleyard ruminates on riding bicycles, watch it, trust me.
I just got in the Bruce Gordon Cycles Rock ‘n Road tires yesterday and literally moments after I opened the box, an email came in from Bruce Gordon alerting me to the new Original Gravel Grinder Rock ‘n Road 25th Anniversary framesets:
“We are going to celebrate 25 years of the Rock ‘n Road with a limited run of numbered, signed 25th Anniversary Rock ‘n Road bicycles. We will produce only 10 of these.
The 25th Anniversary Rock ‘n Road frames will be made right here in the shop, using the same geometry we’ve been using for the past 25 years. The only changes we’ve made are to rear spacing (which is now a modern 135mm) and the headtube, which is now 1⅛” threadless. Forks will be built with the snazzy Pacenti bi-plane lugged fork crown.
The 25th Anniversary frames will come standard with our Signature Rust powdercoat. Other powder coat colors are available for an upcharge. The frames will be expertly TIGged. Fillet brazing is also available for an upcharge. Please note, the Rock ‘n Road is different from the RnR Tour. Its shorter chainstays are ideal for nimble handling and especially good for Gravel Grinding.”

Now that’s what I’m talking about. If you’re going to do high visibility, go with a product(s) people will wear. For Fall 2012, Giro announced new high visibility models in their popular road and dirt shoes, along with the classic cycling shoe, the Empire. See all the models at Giro.
