In Philadelphia this weekend, on the 29th and 30th, Breadwinner Cycles will have a booth for the first time at the Philly Bike Expo. The Portland, Oregon-based company will be displaying its award-winning, hand-made, custom steel bicycles. Breadwinner’s offerings consist of gravel, road, cyclocross, mountain, urban and touring models that are custom-made to fit the rider.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Philly Bike Expo for the first time,” says Co-Founder Ira Ryan. “We’re excited for the opportunity to meet people in person and talk about our unique custom fit and build process. We’re also excited to connect with our growing East Coast community of riders.”
Breadwinner Cycles has been had-making high-quality steel frames since 2013.
In 2019, they acquired the custom wheel-building house, Sugar Wheels Works, which operates out of the same shop.
This year Breadwinner worked closely with Chris Igleheart to learn his methods for building his traditional segmented steel forks. Igleheart has now retired but his designs live on through forks built by Breadwinner for their trusty G-Road and Komorebi models.
Also, at the Expo on Sunday at 7:15am, Breadwinner Cycles is organizing a Meet-up and Ride with Ira. This ride is in conjunction with the Philly Bike Expo Mixed Terrain Ride and wanted to extend an invitation to all riders that want to participate. You can find more info about the ride on the Philly Bike Expo website.
Breadwinner now has 7 employees who ride daily and share a common passion for all things bicycles. If you are looking for your possible dream bike that dons your dream wheelset, click the links below to make it happen.
