Your fully custom cancer fighter.

We share a common goal with the Fireflies: end cancer. To help you on your journey, and to commemorate epic upcoming rides we have created this limited edition Fireflies Speedvagen road machine in a unique FF livery. We'll make a donation to City of Hope in the amount of $200 for each stock frame and $400 for each custom frame sold. Plus an additional $400 donation if you order a complete bike. And if you're interested in Sacha fitting you, you're welcome to come to Portland or he will be in Europe from August 26th - September 11th, 2017 in Amsterdam, London or Girona.

One of the biggest components of a custom bike from The Vanilla Workshop is the fit. Sacha has developed his own system over the last 15+ years of frame building, helping clients find the sweet spot between balance, riding position, and posture. Getting a fit by Sacha generally means a trip to Portland OR, but this year Sacha will be traveling to Amsterdam, London and Girona from August 26th - September 11th. We encourage Fireflies interested in custom geometry to sign up early and book their fit session.

There are limited spots available as each fit takes 2-3 hours. Spending this much time with each customer allows Sacha to understand each riders unique needs and limitations. The end result being your dream bike, perfectly tuned to your riding style.
Contact us to book your session.

Your custom Fireflies Speedvagen features a special edition paint scheme to commemorate your 2017 rides (2017 FF paint scheme - design is underway). It will be a collaboration between Sacha and each rider, and will feature "For those who suffer, we ride." motto incorporated into the design.

Each bike will have the option for a painted name on the top tube. Chose a nickname, your full name or the name of a loved one to which you'll dedicate your ride. 

Next chose stock or custom geometry and decide on additional optional upgrades like electronic group integration, hydraulic disc brakes or our custom Enve carbon seatpost upgrade. Additional charges will apply for optional features.

Finally select your build kit and component group from guidebook - linked below. We've put together a great build kit with our partners, or we can completely customize the build to suit your needs.

Questions? Contact us.

We've rallied the support of our amazing Speedvagen Family Racing sponsors and partners to provide specially priced build kits. We recommend ordering complete bikes as opposed to frames, as every step of the process from fit to finish can be done under the roof of The Vanilla Workshop. That way, every detail of your dream bike will be handled in house... and the support of our partners means we can donate another $400 to the City Of Hope! Contact us at jenn@vanillabicycles.com to learn about the build options available.

The result is a bike that builds up as light as 14 pounds depending on component choice. Each frame comes standard with features like ENVE road fork, integrated seat mast, berserker dropouts and stainless brake bridge. Ritchey seat post topper comes standard, ENVE carbon topper available for additional cost. See here for stock geometry charts (please note stock sizes only available on rim brake bikes).



Recommended upgrade:
We’ve worked with ENVE Composites to develop a Speedvagen-specific externally clamping post. The new design has zero setback and has ore vertical adjustment. At 90 grams, it’s half the weight of our original design. This item will be painted to match your frame and will feature a 3-dimensional Speedvagen shield on the front.

Optional upgrade:
Di2 integration. Our thinking and design extends to places you probably won't even think to look. Unless, of course, you opt for Di2 integration on your Speedvagen. Then you'll uncover more hidden details like stainless wire ports and our machined and painted seat tube battery cover.

Standard feature: 
Our Berzerker dropout is our lightest and smartest to date – cast from a super strong steel alloy with stainless steel inner and outer faces. The use of dual materials means that we get the strength of the base metal and the protection from wear and tear that the raw stainless offers.
