Shout out East Coast...we’re coming for you in November with stops in New York City, DC, Asheville and potential stops in PA and FL! The Speedvagen Fit Tours give us a chance to meet new friends, 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 custom fit session with founder Sacha White.
For a race machine to ride right, it has to be weighted right.
There are a lot of fitting options out there and the trend is toward the upright and conservative fit. We feel strongly that for a Speedvagen to ride like a great race machine, our customers need to be properly balanced on the bike and 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/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.
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!
We know that if a finely made bike doesn’t fit right, it will only ever be ok. So we’re traveling around the world to make sure that the fit of your Speedvagen is every bit as good as the fabrication, design & paint. We’re not going for ok, we’re going for perfect and that means doing things a little bit different.
2016 Asian Fit Tour
We experienced great success with the launch of the Speedvagen Fit Tours in 2015. Last May, Sacha White, founder and head of fitting and design, will take the experience to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Singapore, and Jakarta, Indonesia.
One of the biggest differences of a custom bike from The Vanilla Workshop is the fit. Over the last 15 years, Sacha has developed his own system, bucking the global trends toward upright “comfort” positions, and computer generated recommendations, opting instead to work face to face with each rider, to make them faster and more balanced and connected to the road.
This is a great opportunity to come see the bikes and work directly with the master craftsman who will be making your dream machine.
If you are interested in scheduling a fit session with Sacha, you can easily confirm with a deposit here. If you have further questions, contact us. There is limited space available and we routinely sell out. Space for fittings is on a first come first served basis. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
