All Waterfords Now Made-to-Measure

All Waterfords in 2004 will be made-to-measure at no additional cost...including the new 14 Series. This gives you maximum flexibility to address each of your individual geometric and physical requirements. Our catalog specs provide an excellent starting point and your Waterford dealer is knowledgeable and ready help you make all the proper decisions.

All Waterfords Beyond The Palette

Ride a truly distinctive Waterford bicycle by choosing from among hundreds of colorful, rock-hard PPG paints at no added cost (except prismatiques and luminescents). If you've got really creative ideas, talk to us about custom paint and styling. WeÍre limited only by your imagination.

Lugged Waterfords Better Than Ever

For many enthusiasts, the beauty, durability and tradition of a lugged bicycle will never be eclipsed. Proprietary Waterford lug designs continue to evolve and offer, in certain applications, the best choice. All of our lugged bicycles in 2004 will be lighter by nearly 60 grams and models like the 2004 RS-22 will be lighter still thanks to engineering refinements. As we fully exploit the potential of new lightweight steel alloys, our lug designs will make use of all reasonable advancements to sustain this timeless technology„at even higher performance levels.

TIG Waterfords Catch The Wheel of New R-33

By expanding the boundaries of tube design, as characterized by our new R-33's True Temper S3 tubing, we're able to build bicycles that reach unsurpassed levels of performance as measured by: significant weight reductions that compare favorably to all existing frame materials, far greater strength, more comfort over the long haul, more speed! The 2004 Waterford R-33 is the lightest, fastest, stiffest, most responsive steel race bicycle ever built.

TIG Waterfords Introducing The 14 Series

We've been TIG welding bicycles and components for most of our ten years. Our welders are expert craftsmen. With the recent development of revolutionary air-hardening steels, the argument for lugged construction becomes less compelling. New 2004 Waterford 14 Series bicycles are precisely TIG welded, taking full advantage of the remarkably lightweight, rugged qualities of our exclusive air-hardening tubesets. (Replaces previous 11 Series.)

Waterford Precision Cycles 2004

Over the past decade, we have created a full range of precisely-engineered platforms designed to excel in all cycling disciplines„from the blazing speed of professional track racing to fully-loaded expedition touring. With the addition of the new 2004 R-33, these successful platforms remain the foundation of our bicycle development. Other manufacturers may appear to offer as much, but when you carefully consider the "options" you find minor variations of a single geometry or design philosophy. We customize geometrics, tubesets and equipment to suit your personal cycling requirements„no matter size or riding style.
