 “For me, as a builder, Speedvagen is less about ‘pursuit of craft’ and more of a precise execution of a design.” – Sacha White

Below you’ll find more information about Speedvagen Road and Cross Machines including: components, paint options, build schedule, cost and how to order. Sizing information and geometry charts have their own page HERE.

Every Speedvagen frameset includes the frame, an ENVE 2.0 carbon fork, and Ritchey seat post head. Each Speedvagen, stock to custom, includes a seatmast sized specifically for you.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 503-233-2453, or connect via email: info@speedvagen.com


We would prefer to build you a complete bike. It is our experience that the highest level of customization and performance can be obtained when we see your bike through its final test ride. It’s during the final build process that we can tweak the most minute details and dial-in the finishing touches, creating a true racing thoroughbred.


We offer two kit levels and your choice of gruppo within that kit. Many of the components that we’ll feature on your bike are from companies who sponsor the Speedvagen cross race team. We’ve chosen them for our team and for you because they offer performance and good value, but most of all, because they are companies that we respect for doing things the right way; companies we can stand behind. Our components are priced to be competitive with online vendors but come with a level of expertise and special services like integrated color work on hubs and stems and the immaculate wheel builds that the Vanilla Workshop is known for. The result is value that comes not just from price, but from being taken care of.

There will be two complete bike options derived from what the Speedvagen Racing Team is riding this season. The kits will include parts from ENVE, DT Swiss, Chris King, Fizik and Paul to name a few. The gruppo option will be left open for the customers and will include top offerings from Shimano, Campagnolo and SRAM. Your choice of kit will be laid out clearly for you aong with sizing and color when we get closer to production.

Paint Options:

Speedvagen gets a new color palette for each year with 4 graphic schemes to choose from. Within the color options we like to embody the different personalities of a race bike. So, for example, one selection will be classy and subdued, one racy and Euro, the third will have a hot rod/garage flavor. The fourth is “Surprise Me!”. Always a favorite and always a surprise, No Hints – No Regrets. Frames painted with the Surprise Me! option will carry a price increase of between $0 and $800 depending on the complexity of the graphic work and number of colors.
