I agree completely.. Bruce has an eye for forms and shapes, a sculptural sense of balance and form... well, an art student could spend hours of gallery-speak talking about Gordon's work. And that''s BEFORE we get to his finesse with a torch. I know some readers hate to hear someone refer to bike frames as art, but darn it, there are a few builders who really approach it and I would put Bruce Gordon toward the top of my list (with a few list members also up there.) If those art-bike naysayers don't understand, they could spend time just studying BG's lugged bikes. Kinda like going to the Louvre and just sitting and looking at the Mona Lisa till you get it..
