We feel strongly that for a Speedvagen to ride like a great race machine, our customers need to be properly balanced on the bike. When a rider is in a position where back and stomach muscles are supporting the weight of their upper body, their arms are freed up to move with the bike to soak up shock and the muscles in the lower body are activated, firing, and fast. These principles apply to a spry young racer as well as a any seasoned rider with lots of miles and years under their belt.

Like with our frames, our fitting is different than anything else out there. That’s why we’re traveling the world to make it happen.


November 4 - 21, 2016 - East Coast

East Coast! We arrive in New York this Friday with additional stops in Washington, D.C., North Carolina! The full schedule is listed below. The Speedvagen Fit Tours give us a chance to meet our people, ride great roads, and share our bikes with those of you who have mostly seen them through the web. Most importantly, future Speedvagen owners get a full consultation and custom fit session with founder Sacha White.

Interested in being fitted for a Speedvagen and having your new machine in your hands well before road season? Yeah!! Want to work with us collaboratively? Just wanna come hang out and talk bikes? Or even demo an OG? Shoot us a note and we’ll send more info, or secure one of the handful of spots with a DEPOSIT!
