    svog12 svog11

    The Speedvagen OG-1 is finally available after being a work-in-progress for over a year. Sacha has been working hard to get the Speedvagen Ready-Made program dialed in and the OG-1 road bike is the first model to be added to that family. The OG1 is fully designed, built, painted and assembled in The Vanilla Workshop, bringing a new definition of handbuilt bicycle to the market.

    The Original Gangster OG1 is designed to be a minimalist, no-frills machine that’s bombproof and race-ready while still giving you a nice, smooth ride. You’ll be able to finally get your hands on a Speedvagen without such a long wait now! Their goal is to have the bike delivered to you within 2 weeks of ordering…wowzers.

    Here’s the nitty gritty:

    5 standard sizes ranging from 50 to 58 (50,52,54,56,58).
    2 iconic color options – Matte Army & Matte Lavender.
    Painted in house, utilizing Speedvagen Ghost graphics.
    Berzerker dropouts.
    Integrated seatmast.
    Super light custom drawn steel tubing. (Columbus and True Temper)
    Strategically placed stainless steel reinforcements.

    Componentry:

    Shimano Dura Ace mechanical shifters and rear derailleur.
    Shimano Ultegra front derailleur, cranks and brakes.
    Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels & tires.
    Fizik Antares saddle.
    PRO handlebar wrapped in Cinelli cork tape.
