Third Ward Frameset - Retired


  • The Third Ward was inspired by classic steel road bikes and hearkens back to a day when frames were designed as much for their aesthetic as they were for performance. Built around 4130 chromoly tubing, and featuring beautiful lug work, internal cable routing, downtube shifting and an ample number of fender/rack mounts, the Third Ward is the ideal platform for your next touring, road or city build.

    Inspired by the historic Third Ward neighborhood here in Milwaukee, the Third Ward has been a project we've been developing for years. Borrowing innovative features from our ultra-versatile Quiver frameset, the third Ward was designed for many uses. Using 132.5mm rear spacing and beautifully crafted sliding dropouts, the Third Ward can easily be built up with an internal hub, cassette or single speed hub giving you the flexibility to build up your bike as you see fit.  For that truly retro build we've added mounts on the downtube for the rider that prefers to use a downtube shifter.

    Each Third Ward frame is ED coated on the inside and exterior of the frame which offers automotive level rust protection for people that like us, ride all year in the elements.  With dual water bottle mounts and multiple front and rear fender/rack mounts the Third Ward is a great platform for a multi-use commuter or steel touring bike. 

    Available in 4 sizes and two beautiful colors, we're confident that there's a Third Ward for anyone looking for a well built, reliable and affordable classic steel frame.
