Waterford Precision Cycles is based in Waterford, WI. Yes, they're not far away, and they build steel bicycles one at a time by hand.
Our in-store example is a 33-series Waterford, built with True Temper's S-3 cro-moly steel. Precision TIG welding gives the bike a clean and classic look. Cro-moly steel provides a supple ride quality, making the 33-series an outstanding choice for century rides, day trips and fast group rides. The head tube is an oversized 44mm diameter with a durable Chris King InSet threadless headset, adding an extra dash of handling precision compared to older threaded headsets and skinny head tubes. The bottom bracket is a threaded outboard unit, ensuring excellent power transfer and ease of maintenance. Flat-mount disc brake installation keeps weight low and improves braking performance. Thru-axle hub dropouts add lateral strength that improves power transfer, especially during uphill, out-of-the-saddle efforts. An Enve carbon fiber fork is not only lightweight, but also excellent at soaking up fatiguing vibration.
Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra 8000-series components are found throughout this 33-Series Waterford, bringing outstanding operation, performance and longevity to the bike.
Bontrager supplies the carbon fiber Aeolus Pro 3 Disc wheelset, They're tubeless-ready, and boast bladed straight-pull spokes. The bullet-shaped rim profile resists crosswinds much better than V-profile rims, while still carving through the air with less effort. Bontrager also supplies the tubeless-ready 700x26c R2 tires.
A Thomson alloy road stem and alloy seatpost add another layer of quality to this 33-Series, while a carbon fiber Bontrager RXL road handlebar and Bontrager Affinity Comp saddle completes this outstanding Wisconsin-made masterpiece.
Waterford Precision Cycles builds a wide range of quality steel bicycles. Racing, touring, cyclocross and gravel bicycles are their passion. Please call for further information about custom builds, custom paint and even custom geometry. You can visit their website at www.waterfordbikes.com
