Portland’s Breadwinner Cycles need little introduction, being the joint enterprise of two of Portland’s most renowned and respected custom framebuilders: Ira Ryan and Tony Pereira. The newest addition to their catalog is a versatile hucker, the Goodwater.
The Goodwater is versatile because it can accommodate both 27.5+ x 3″ tires — a chunkier option for rougher or softer terrain — and 29 x 2.3″ tires for faster, smoother trails. Either way, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck.
These days, riders want the choice of both wheel sizes. It’s good economy, for sure. Why limit yourself to a single stock option when you can have the best of both worlds? Rest assured, if it’s a Breadwinner, you’ll be getting a bike that’s born to shred.
Breadwinner Cycles makes it almost too easy to own a custom bike. The Goodwater, like every bike in their lineup, is available with personalised geometry — that is: top tube, seat tube and head tube length is determined by your own specifications.
The Columbus and True Temper tubes can also be personally selected. There’s 9 stock color choices, with custom options available, and there’s a lifetime warranty on craftsmanship. S&S couplers? No problem. Rear rack braze-ons? Too easy.
Internal brake lines and dropper seat post routing are also easy add-ons. Di2 or EPS cabling can be incorporated. Tony and Ira are serious off-roaders themselves, and the Goodwater is developed from their experience and built by their enthusiasm for riding.
The Goodwater can be yours from USD$1895 for a frame, and a complete build starts at USD$4350. A $500 deposit starts the process, and it will be delivered to your door 8 to 12 weeks after you place your order — or you can pick it up from the workshop.
