Cyclocross is in our blood
It should be no surprise that both Vanilla and Speedvagen started with a cross bikes and nearly two decades later, with victories at National Championships, more State Championships than we can count and wins around the world, it’s our favorite of all disciplines.
Every Speedvagen race machine is hand built in our workshop and is meant to be ridden. Hard. We're constantly asking ourselves "How can we remove any sense of preciousness? What's going to make these bikes get used to their fullest?"
The result is a brand new for 2018 Speedvagen Ready Made Cross. Fully built, ready to race and starting at $5995.
As with our other Ready Made bikes, these Team Issue versions are the distillation of everything that makes a Speedvagen a Speedvagen, without compromising on performance or standard features.

Speedvagen steel is realer than real
Made from the latest technology, our new steel is to traditional steel what a Tesla is to a 60’s Ford. Speedvagen tubes are 4-6 times stronger than the tubing people typically associate with a steel bike. Because it’s stronger, it can be made lighter, resulting in a Speedvagen as light as 13lbs (6kgs) complete. Learn more about our tubing in our deep dive.
FLAT MOUNT THRU AXLE
The RMCX is our second bike to sport our brand new custom Speedvagen chain stays, designed specifically to be paired with with flat mount brakes and thru axles.
The integrated seatmast makes for beautiful lines. There are a couple
of things that are unique to our bikes. Each length of every Speedvagen seatmast is finished specifically for its owner. We also use stainless steel around the top of the seat tube where our post head mounts, rather than the post head wearing on a painted surface. The result is lighter and cleaner than a traditional seatpost, and the collar looks great topped with our ENVE-made Speedvagen post head.
