The Winter “Ambassador”: teaming cutting edge performance and timeless style to provide a touch of luxury to regular urban riding.
The Ambassador frame set starts with a flowing fillet brazed frame, disc specific lugged fork and made to measure fillet brazed “French Point” stem. This classic porteur style city bike is updated with an electronic shifting Alfine Di2 internally geared hub. It uses an integrated dynamo lighting system riding on house-laced Velocity rims and Compass 650b/42mm tires. The Ambassador spins a White Industries crank on a matching bottom bracket. Deceleration is addressed with XT hydraulic brakes (routed internally for the rear). Bespoke RuthWorks SF luggage is paired with Winter rear carrier and front porteur racks. The rich wine red and gold box lining was performed by Todd Eroh.
At home in the city, the Winter Bicycles Ambassador is designed for daily use balancing comfortable utility and a sporting ride.
