2013 NAHBS: Winter Bicycles

Eric Estlund of Winter Bicycles like many builders, is beginning to step into the production / semi-custom market. While he’s still making fully custom frames, his recent Pelican rando project for Box Dog Bikes marked a new direction for Winter. At his NAHBS booth this year, Eric displayed two semi-custom production bikes. One of which is en route to Texas now. Still, I couldn’t take my eyes off this track bike…

    I’m not sure which ones, but two of Winters’ bikes had custom saddle covers done by http://www.recoveredsaddle.com here in Texas.

      This is Jason from RecoveredSaddle.com. Thanks for adding that clarification James.

      The saddle on the track bike is one of the one’s I did for Eric. It was some Japanese saddle I’ve never seen before. The other saddle was a Concor that Eric told me he was riding himself.

    Any word on who did the paint on that last road bike? I love it. The hammer finish paint is making me nostalgic for the bikes I grew up with in the 90s.

    The stem detail in the first shot is awesome!

    Wow!  Just noticed the katana wrap on the handlebars!

      Funny story, Eric had to look up his own tutorial that he made years ago on how to do it because it had been so long. Love that dude’s work!

        I thought the bike was awesome to begin with but to see the builder take such amazing pains on even the smallest detail really puts this this one over the top.
