My friends that race masters are showing up on rides with brand new Venges, Madones, SuperSixes… And the newness is pretty cool (and great motivation). Nice to see masters racing so well supported with bikes fom the future.. and these guys train so hard (huge respect). And I think… shoot, I want a new bike too. I look at my 2008 Vagen… it gets ridden in some shape or form nearly every morning (no matter what it doesnt love me back.. so, days are skipped when the woman is up for hanging out). The paint isn’t even chipped in any real way. It looks newish. It feels amazing. I have love with it. And I’d only want another one for my next bike. I’m so screwed with this thing… 3 or 4 years old and we’re just really still playing with each other.

  1. The one thing my SV has done the best is killed my bike lust. I admire new bikes but it ends there

  2. In looking at pictures of many of your speedvagen bikes (especially the cross version), what is your view on stand over height. And I don’t mean as how to determine fit?

  3. Hi Mark,

    Of all of the things that I factor into a bike design, stand over height is low on the list. A lot of attention has been paid to standover height in bike shops over the years, mainly because it’s a quick way to see if a bike is roughly the right size for the buyer, but for everything other than mountain bikes, the riders ability to stand over the top tube, flat footed, isn’t important.
