Oswald Cycle Works

Oswald Cycle Works Jared's Road

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.

    Wow. I can’t imagine how long it must take to craft a frame in that manner. I have to hand it to you, Tom. That’s pretty amazing.

  • I like everything except the headset colour. Maybe a chrome one would be better.

    The frame is awesome.

    We need more brooks’ saddles! Every single bike in existance should have one! MORE I NEED MORE!

    Not really.

      If all you see when you look at a bike with a beautiful handmade frame is the saddle, you’ve missed the point. It’s like poking fun at a vintage Les Paul because you don’t like the strings.

        No, i like the frame. Sorry for not commenting it, but the brooks on every bike is getting on my nerves.

        • I can´t imagine this frame with a modern saddle, but maybe a San Marco Regal would be better looking.

  • nice frame indeed

    Great details! I really like the frame and color combinations on this one
