Winter Bicycles: Tool Series Mar 7, 2013


Here’s an update to the run of production frames that Winter displayed at NAHBS. Dubbed the Tool Series, these frames offer an easily accessible, handmade road frame designed for everything from daily use to road racing. Each Tool Series frame is made in Oregon by Winter Bicycles using fillet brazing and is fit to the rider. These bikes are built to order, feature a Pegoretti Falz Carbon Fork, a Cane Creek 110 Headset and come in two color schemes: Pewter and Hammervein (pictured). See more at Winter and check out additional photos at the Winter Flickr.

  • Tool Series #1 is mine. I got sick right after getting back from NAHBS, so I’ve only got about 100 miles on it so far, but it’s everything it is supposed to be. It’s a rare thing to have an affordable bespoke bike. The frame fits like a glove, there’s no extra bits, and it’s easily ousted my Litespeed as my “forever bike”. It’s lively, stiff, no nonsense, and looks great. Good work, Eric.
