Based in Oregan, USA, Winter Bicycles manufactures custom bicycles and luxurious necessities including forks, racks and other fittings. At Winter, the focus is on fresh, clean, year round bicycles. The bicycles are made from a custom blend of steel tubing to be purpose built and rider-centric. That means each frame, each detail, is designed to fit the individual needs of the rider. Truly bespoke, in every sense of the word.
The Builder at Winter Bicycles is Eric Estlund. Eric is 'Winter Bicycles'; as the designer, builder, email guy and official floor sweeper he has both worked and played in many areas of the cycling world. Eric recognized early on the freedom and excitement of riding, not just competitively but also recreationally and bike design became part of how he chose to explore and represent his world.
典雅- “Tenga”, meaning “classic” or “elegant” and often used to describe traditional Japanese dance.The Tenga track bike was built as Eric's interpretation of traditional lugged Japanese track frames. With nods to Italian influences, the lugs are clean with very specific gestural sweeps. The over all look of the bike is tight and refined, with just the right amount of detail. The classic pipes are arranged in a modern sprint pattern ready to real world competitive use. This bike is built with a True Temper tube mix, modern cast lugs and drop outs, and a traditional Italian internally lugged fork crown.
The Evening Orchid paint by Keith Anderson was inspired by mid 60′s muscle cars and features a layered drop shadow logo. The parts are a mix of 70′s Campagnolo with a custom Winter stem, Curtis Odom hubs laced to Velocity rims made for this project and a vintage Fujita saddle recovered by Recovered Saddles.
