The New Original 29er Bruce Gordon Rock n’ Road Tire

tire-tread-web The Bruce Gordon Rock n’ Road tire is back for another run. The original “29er” tire, the Rock n’ Road is not a road tire and it is not a mountain tire, but a 43 mm wide, 700c tire with a bit of tread for when the road ends. This was a revolutionary thing in 1988 when introduced on the original Rock n’ Road touring bike, long before others went ahead and invented the 29er. Made by Panaracer in Japan, the tire is available with in classic gumwall for $50 from Bruce Gordon Cycles.
