Breadwinner Cycles

“Ira and Tony continue to design and craft every custom Breadwinner bicycle with our small team, a process that stems from their love of riding and creating quality objects. Mollie joined Breadwinner after completing the framebuilding course at United Bicycle Institute in 2019 and has grown to be a key part of our framebulding production. Mollie loves bikepacking on her own frame all over Oregon. Alex moved from Chicago in 2019 to work at Sugar Wheelworks and has excelled in every way in his role. With a thirst for adventure, Alex has folded into life in the PNW both on and off the bike. We are thrilled to bring Alex on board at Breadwinner Cycles to help manage sales and customer service.” –

Breadwinner Cycles B-Road

“Take the long way home. Get off the beaten path. Explore forgotten logging roads and rural farm lanes, and take the loose gravel path towards the horizon. Ira’s two Trans-Iowa victories and thousands of miles riding gravel roads have lead to the creation of the B-Road. Our gravel bike is light enough to float over crushed Iowa limestone, adventure on double-track over wild mountain passes, and stay equally nimble on the paved roads connecting them. Custom designed and built with Columbus Spirit tubing. Where will you go?”
