More than just A road bike.
All-road, All-ride comfort for any of your riding aspirations. The A-Road is the product of a decade of Breadwinner and over 1,000 bikes made. We took 10 years of rider feedback and turned it into the most modern, configurable premium steel road bike made in the USA today. Whether your day-to-day riding takes you on perfect pavement, less-than-ideal chipseal, or primitive graded gravel, the A-Road brings its A-game. Hard to say whether we’ve slimmed down our flagship B-Road or added versatility to the legendary Lolo, but what’s for sure is that the A-Road is the most balanced drop bar bike we’ve designed to date. The A-Road is designed for tires ranging from 28-38mm. That means that you’ll feel a floatatious ride without lugging around extra rubber. Each frame is built with a custom blend of top-end Columbus tubing.
The A-Road has tire clearance that approaches that of the B-Road but performs like the Lolo. I’ve been riding one for the past two months here in the Rockies, the Dolomites and the Pyrenees and can report that the A-Road might be the most capable road-oriented bike available today. I rode it on the East Pyrenees Cent Cols Challenge. Dawn til dusk days of steep climbs, technical descents and rough roads (paved, broken and gravel) were no match for the A-Road.

$500 deposit due today.
From the moment you consider ordering a Breadwinner, we’re here to help you make the right decisions. When you’re ready to place your order, we ask for a $500 deposit.
We’ll help you hone in on your vision for your one-of-a-kind bicycle by learning about your bike fit, past bicycles and riding style. We will also help you choose components and paint.
Once you’ve confirmed the design and details, you’ll receive an invoice for the balance. We make the frame by hand in our workshop, then it’s ready for paint.
We assemble your bike in our shop using the right tools and techniques, then carefully pack and ship the bike to your door. Or you can pick it up from us here in Portland.
