Find Your Road B-Road

Posted on: October 10th, 2018

We did something different with this bike. It’s a B-Road through and through but it’s better than any B-Road we’ve ever made.

Introducing the Find Your Road B-Road. We’ve built on our proven and popular platform to make a custom-made bicycle that checks off all the boxes. Want tire clearance? You got it. Room for fenders? Check. Fast looks and stable handling for use with slick tires? Lace them up. Carrying capacity? Of course. The Find Your Road B-Road is the perfect bike to take the long way home, explore forgotten logging roads and to pound the pavement with your friends.

The B-Road wasn’t in the lineup when we launched Breadwinner Cycles in 2013. However, our experience riding gravel on the Rapha Continental team informed us that some of the best days on the road bike aren’t found on the tarmac. For the DNA, we retained excellent handling and comfortable Columbus steel tubing but added disc brakes. When the bike hit the ground in 2014 it was an instant hit. Since then we’ve built up a few hundred unique builds with anything from 28c race tires, 32c tires, fenders, generator hub and racks, flat bars and fat 44c off road tires. It’s the bike that truly can do it all.

Today, the B-Road can fit up to 50c tires, and be built up with some tried and true options like a Silca Frame pump, Enve Wheels, integrated frame bags, fenders, rear racks, or generator front hub.


The great thing about the B-road is it’s versatility. It can be configured with road tires for pavement riding, knobby tires for trails, touring tires and fenders for commuting and camping, or cyclocross tires for racing. The geometry is in the sweet spot for doing all these things without compromise. -Tony Pereira

This limited edition B-Road has unique options to turn it into a rainy weather commuter, gravel race bike, or all day adventure rig. We think the integrated frame bag by Andrew the Maker are a nice touch. The bike and the bag are both made to order and available for a limited time. 

Since every bike we make is custom this isn’t an off the shelf frame bag. We partnered with Andrew the Maker in Kansas City. The goal was to have a sleek and tidy half frame bag with as few straps on the tubes as possible. To achieve this we added an array of bosses brazed in specific locations to hold the bag inside the triangle.

From the second we got our hands on an Omata we loved it. It preserves a lot of the functionality of a tradition digital cycling computer with a sexy and well designed analog look. It looks great on a custom steel bicycle.

At Breadwinner, we’re pretty stoked on the new ENVE G series of rims. They have the perfect width and perfect stance for our most popular bikes. The G23 and G27 are going to be very popular on our B-Roads and G-Roads. The G23 rims on the B-Road have a 23mm inner width and fit really well with 38c-50c tires. They’re light, strong and very fast!

Add ENVE G23 and Chris King wheels for $1195.

This is the first bike we’ve built with Chris King’s new color: Matte Turquoise. We were already in love with polished Turquoise and are stoked to have a chiseled and subdued color to offer to our customers.

Matte Turquoise Chris King headset, bottom bracket, and hubs are standard on the Find Your Road B-Road. Want another color, like they’re new Matte Mango, just let us know. We can easily change up the parts just for you.

Those of you who ride in the rain will love these fenders. We’ve tried every fender on the market and keep coming back to Hanjo. The quality, sturdiness, and finish can’t be beaten.

Add Honjo SIMworks Turtle fenders to you Find Your Road for $125. For this we’ll replace the 42c WTB Resolutes tires with another set of our favorites, Compass Barlow Pass 38c.

This well equipped B-Road, even with the standard features, would sell for over $7,000. Through October 27th you can get the Find Your Road B-Road with all the standard features custom built for only $6,395.

If you’re interested in any of the add-ons or upgrades don’t worry. The special isn’t a strictly an ala carte composition. Place a $500 deposit and Ira and Tony will follow up to finalize the details.

Cool paint, cool parts, and cool accouterment options make this a unique but adaptable B-Road. Dress it up with a frame and saddle bag for all-day gravel riding. Add fenders if you ride in the rain. Select some more trim 38c tires and an Omata Cycling computer for pounding out miles on the tarmac. We’ve built the foundation. Don’t see the parts you want?
