Sugar Wheel Works: Pretty Damned Awesome!!!

Recently one of my favorite photographers Chantal Anderson stopped in at Sugar Wheel Works and snapped a few photos of the space. Anna Maria also did a an interview with Jude Gerace the founder of Sugar Wheel Works, check it all out at Pretty Damned Fast!


When did you start Sugar Wheel Works and who do you build wheels for?

We started Sugar (then Epic) in 2009. April 1, 2009 to be exact. We build wheels for Vanilla Bicycles, Breadwinner and Sweetpea but that’s only a small fraction of our business–we really enjoy working with every day riders, racers, and adventurers!

Are handbuilt wheels just for racing or touring?

Na. HB wheels are for all bikes and I can’t think of an application that wouldn’t benefit from a HB wheel. The reason being is that HB wheels let you pick more durable components which have a longer life and can be re used. Another benefit is that they are built with precision so that the life had on the wheels is noticeably more enjoyable.

A. Danger and The Lion King, Cippo, Super Mario, etc!



One of a kind, custom-made, aero-tubing Cannondale Track made for the indomitable Mario Cipollini circa 1999. Serial number: “CIPOL”. Most of the “track” frames built for him used traditional round tubes and were ridden on the road in the off-season to improve pedal stroke and efficiency. Most of the round tube “track” frames still had mounts for a rear brake and water bottles. This aero track frame saw actual use on the track, since it was built without brake or water bottle mounts and it boasts sponsor decals. The frame was designed in the CAD software Pro Engineer in Bethel, CT and then the tubes were laser cut to Cipollini’s specific geometry at the Cannondale factory in Bedford, PA. The frame was then welded, heat treated, and painted in that same facility. A true piece of historic American craftsmanship and Italian racing history. Go Team Saeco!
