NO SINGLE DETAIL OUTWEIGHS ANOTHER American bicycle brand Speedvagen is known for their handmade steel bikes. The brand originated as the new race bike brand of the highly reputed custom bike brand, Vanilla Bicycle. With a background in competitive cycling, founder Sacha White understands the importance of building the bike to fit the rider.
From customer service, to metal work, to paint, build out, and packing the bike on our Sled system, we put an average of 150 hours into each Speedvagen.
Every curve and line of the Speedvagen frame is designed to look and work perfectly together. Each detail is there to improve on what has historically been done in the bike world. The time and care we put into each bike goes toward the craft of hundreds of details big and small. Each refinement alone is not revolutionary, but when put together they make for a rarified gestalt experience, on and off the bike.
THERE ARE A LOT OF BIKES IN THE WORLD We are not here to crank bikes out and fill the world with more stuff, stuff that is just OK, or even stuff that is good. We are here to make you the best bike we possibly can and help you have incredible experiences on the bike. Now, no one detail on it’s own is going to change your life. Heck you may not even notice some of them for years! But the hundreds of little (and big) details add up to make a bike that is different than anything out there and give you the lively, all day comfort.
OUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY IN A WORD: BALANCE.
FIT MATTERS. That’s why we travel the world to get it right. One part of fit is comfort. And another part of fit is efficiency and power. These are the aspects that all fitting methods will focus on.
There's another dimension to your fit though: how you are weighting the bike and how that affects the handling of the bike. We call this Balance. Balance is the key to confidence and confidence is the key to, well, anything that anyone is working to achieve. To get you in this place of balance, we first line up your center of gravity above the bike. This evenly distributes your weight across the contact points, (the saddle and handlebar).
Speedvagen is not just a Bike, but also a Collector’s Art Piece
Bicycles are not only made for riding, but are also an extension of the owner’s personal style. From the frame to the paint, to the wheels and accessories, every detail of a Speedvagen bicycle demonstrates the brand’s dedication to perfection. Therefore each Speedvagen bike produced is collector worthy, and a stand-out piece to show cycling buddies. We are here to make you the best bike we possibly can and help you have incredible experiences on the bike.
