Tom Oswald has clocked up enough miles on enough styles of bikes to enable him to know what makes a good one. He’s been riding and racing mountain bikes, roadies and cyclocross for over twenty years, with a little triathlon, duathlon, tandem riding, and touring thrown in for healthy measure.
A key point to the Oswald Cycle Works ethos is that all of Tom’s frames are constructed using only human powered tools: no lathes, no milling machines, no 12-axis CNC laser molecule modulators, not even an electric drill. It must be very quiet around the Mansfield, Pennsylvania workshop, so the highest level of craftsmanship can unfold. Following this method, Tom assures that his frames are akin to a finely crafted wine, overlooked by an artisan who takes pride in every file and every turn of the hand cranked drill.
