2018 Philly Bike Expo: Winter Bicycles S&S 27.5 Dirt Tourer
Photos and words by Jarrod Bunk

Versatility, that would be a word that would sum up this bike fairly well.  It’s a Cerakote-coated S&S dirt rando touring machine from Winter Bicycles out of Nittany Pennsylvania. RuthWorks teamed up on the bags to complete a package that is totally integrated so that the Ultralight Randonneur bag is free of a decaleur. Along with beautiful handmade racks to distribute an even load this bike even has bolt-in frame bag compatibility along with three pack bosses on the fork legs to let this dirt rando bike switch between traditional bags as well as a more of a bikepacking setup.  With 27.5 x 2.6″ clearance, this bike can tackle the road less traveled.  Full internal dynamo wiring with quick disconnects, as well a Sinewave Cycles beacon make for a very clean setup that allows for plenty of off-grid touring.

Winter Bicycles: Austin’s Donut Sprinkles Disc Road Bike

Donuts, cookies, pizza and beer. All these food items – yes, beer is considered a food – are the vices of many people, yet as cyclists we can somehow justify them before, during or after a ride. These tasty treats, the donuts in particular, were the inspiration for Austin’s new Winter Bicycles disc road. With a clean coat of beautiful paint by Lucas from Stoemper, a SRAM road group and Zipp Wheels, Austin will have all the motivation to feast on treats for years to come. See more specs at Winter and some more photo selects below.

Winter Bicycles Ambassador Porteur

Winter Bicycles Ambassador Porteur

Timeless design and modern technology pair up nicely with the latest from Winter Bicycles. The Ambassador is a fillet brazed frame, with a disc-specific lugged fork and made-to-measure “French Point” stem. For gearing, the Ambassador relies on an internal Alfine Di2 hub. The lighting is integrated to the frame with a SON hub powering Edelux lamp and the Velocity wheels roll on Compass tires. Braking relies on XT hydraulic discs and White Industries tops out the build. As for the paint, it was laid down by Todd Eroh.

Check out more details of this lovely project at Winter.

Winter Bicycles Certeza Road

Winter Bicycles Certeza Road

I don’t know what’s more impressive, Winter Bicycles‘ work or the fact that builder Eric Estlund always comes up with unique names for each build. In this case, a modern road model called Certeza, which is Portuguese for certainty, sureness and confidence.

The Winter Certeza is made from a selection of True Temper and Dedacciai tubes, with a confident Columbus MAX fork. The shaped tubes are joined with an elegance found only in smooth fillet-brazing.

For the kit, Eric built the Certeza with Dura Ace 9000, C24 wheels and a PRO kit. The Cane Creek headset is done in matching black and silver. To complete the build, a stem with a “French Point” treatment. The frame and fork are designed to accommodate a range of tire widths for different surfaces and are shown with 25mm Veloflex tires. Keith Anderson provided the Certeza with it’s deep pearl white paint and gold drop shadowed logos.

Winter Bicycles: Picholine City Bike

I don’t know what’s more impressive. Winter’s bicycles, or the names Eric comes up with for them. “Picholine” are olives originally from the south of France. The classic era French city bikes have always interested Eric from Winter Bicycles, so when a client requested a commuter, he looked to them for inspiration, while picking up a few modern details. Fenders, generator lamp, racks and other elegant elements adding to the beauty and functionality of utilitarian bicycles.

Winter Bicycle’s New Peregrinator Rando Rambo Bike

Eric from Winter Bicycles describes his latest build, the Peregrinator as a “full rando with Di2/ Hydro robot build.” Yes, rando, not Rambo. Although the latter seems fitting with this build kit. Talk about going full-on commando assault steeze… The Peregrinator comes locked and loaded with Nitto components, A23 rims, Compass Tires, White Industries, Schmidt generator hub, internal wiring with Ultegra Di2, Winter racks, a Winter stem and a Ruthworks SF Luggage bag.

Shine, please, shine, Peregrinator. You’re ready for anything. Check out more detail photos below…
