BALANCE

We design our bikes not only to even out weight on a rider’s contact points, but also to distribute the rider’s weight perfectly onto each wheel—an elusive attribute of bike design. We call this balance — frame geometry designed to perfectly connect the rider with their bespoke machine and through that, connect them to the road. To achieve this perfect balance, our fit process focuses on the relationship between core muscle groups to find the perfect position for you and your Speedvagen. Good fit is your body being in the right shape where your back and arm muscles relax and your body is free to move on the bike. The result of perfect fit and balance is a rarified pairing where you are connected to and working with your bike, rather than fighting it. Because the bike is perfectly weighted, you can push harder through corners with more confidence than ever before. You won’t know until you try it and this is your chance!

INTEGRATION

Look closely at a Speedvagen when you see one in person. Every curve and line of the frame is designed to look and work as one. Our head tube design is shaped perfectly to pair with the lines of  ENVE forks, smoothly cascading from tube to headset to fork crown. The seat stays hug the form of the wheel tapering flat and wide for a smooth ride and creating a beautiful silhouette from behind. Frame-to-component interfaces are mated with stainless reinforcement in high-wear areas—their curvatures smoothly blending between the tubes they attach. The ultimate example is our Di2 battery storage that tucks away inside your seat mast with our own machined aluminum cap that echoes the shape of a classic sports car gas cap. Small parts like cable stops, stainless steel reinforced brake bridges, head tube reinforcing rings, and down tube adjusters are all of our own design. These features and all of the frame elements are what take every Speedvagen frame to eleven.
