Breadwinner Holeshot FullMaybe you’ve seen these handsome bikes at the races lately? Maybe not? Breadwinner, located in the Arbor Lodge neighborhood of North Portland, has been furiously turning out some amazing steel race bikes. We have several bikes and frames in stock including their road-race, traditional road, cross, commuter, and touring bikes.

Breadwinner Holeshot Rear Dropout And Quick ReleaseThe idea was to create a vintage, all silver, bike that looks it was pulled down from your parents garage rafters and hosed off. In a day of black and red components, it’s a good throwback that catches everyone’s eye. Moments later the individual realize its a full-blown modern race machine.
