Steel is still real! And still handmade in Waterford, WI!

We're proud to carry Waterford bicycles here at Machinery Row. Waterford has produced handmade steel bicycles for over 25 years and can build a unique custom machine for you. This 56cm example we have in our inventory is just a taste of what can be built!

This Waterford is the R-33 Disc, and is designed to be a light and quick machine for fast rides and centuries. Built with butted seamless True Temper S-3 cro-moly steel, the R-33 Disc delivers unmatched ride quality. Shifter cables are externally routed though threaded guides on the head tube, making at-home repairs much easier. The rear hydraulic brake hose is also external. A stout 44mm head tube anchors the fork, ensuring precision handling in high-speed turns and descents. A 12mm thru-axle rear dropout ensures precise wheel and brake rotor alignment. Even the threaded steel right dropout is replaceable. Up front, a carbon fiber Enve fork boasts 12mm thru-axle dropouts and flat-mount brake caliper installation. Bottle cages are standard, but fender mounts and other braze-ons are available options.

 Our in-stock R-33 Disc example is equipped with Shimano's latest 11-speed Ultegra components, bringing precise operation and long service life. If you haven't looked at Shimano's Ultegra components recently, there are several upgrades to be found:


  • Adjustable-reach dual-control levers boast a redesigned lever hood for more comfort and grip
  • The 50/34T compact crankset is more rigid for better power transfer and is also more aerodynamic
  • The Shadow-style rear derailleur takes its cues from mountain bike components, and can shift under greater pedaling loads
  • The long-cage rear derailleur can shift up to a 34T large cog
  • The cage on the front derailleur has a redesigned "tail" that clears wide tires on short-chainstay bikes
  • A toggle-pivot front derailleur design now has a cable tension adjuster on the body of the derailleur, eliminating the need for in-line adjuster barrels
  • Flat-mount disc brake calipers improve pad-to-rotor engagement for better lever feedback
  • IceTech Freeza rotors are built with 3-layer construction, dispersing heat better during repeated hard braking

The R-33's rolling stock consists of Bontrager's Aeolus Pro 3 Disc wheelset. They're tubeless-ready and boast stacked spoke lacing for improved lateral stiffness. the 35mm rim sports a refined D3 (Dual Directional Design) blunt-nosed profile, allowing the bike to better resist crosswinds. 12mm thru-axle installation improves lateral stiffness further for enhanced handling in high-speed turns and descents. Bontrager's 700x26c R2 tubeless-ready tires keep rolling resistance low and cornering grip high.

The R-33 didn't get a shortcut on the "furniture". A lightweight Thomson Elite alloy seatpost boasts a setback profile and a 2-bolt set-and-forget seat clamp. Bontrager's alloy-railed Affinity Comp saddle adds a cutout profile for improved comfort on longer rides. Thomson also supplies a 2-bolt X2 alloy stem with an interlocking faceplate that is carbon-friendly. The road handlebar itself is a carbon fiber Bontrager Race X Lite model that soaks up fatiguing vibration as well as keeping overall weight low.

The R-33 can be built with custom geometry, custom paint and a wide range of component groups to make the bike uniquely your own. A digital Retul motion capture bike fit available here at Machinery Row will ensure your bike will fit perfectly. Please call for details.
