We have all had those many shocking moments where a new bike literally appeared out of thin air. In this case, a brand new Speedvagen custom steel road bike. The explanation to your significant other normally involves some sort of indirect lie about how a buddy needed to get rid of it or a local shop was blowing out their old models. Either way, you convince yourself that you absolutely didn’t wake up that morning expect to purchase another bike. Surprises happen and we can only react in the face of their occurrence.
Speedvagen introduces their latest initiative called Surprise Me! The ultimate experience to further stretch creative design, delivering a special paint scheme sight unseen to customers around the world.
Speedvagen produces custom steel bicycles with a focus on attention to detail – all built in house. Unexpected color combinations, unique graphic treatments, and three-dimensional paint are iconic to Speedvagen. Pairing world class finish work with meticulously fabricated frames set these bikes apart from the pack.
“With our Surprise Me offering, we promise “No Hints, no regrets”. We’re known for our color work. Dating back to the early years, our customers have a lot of trust in our design sense. They provide a little direction and turn us loose, which is how to best harness our creativity and excitement.” says Sacha White, lead builder and owner of Speedvagen. “We took this one step further, giving people the option to pick a flavor and let us run with it.”
The order window for this year’s SM! Bikes closes on Dec 31st, at which point the design goes into the vault.

This year’s offering incorporates new patterns, big blocks of gradient tones, and hits of vibrant contrasting color. Speedvagen controls the build process for each client: fit, design, fabrication, paint and build executed in-house. This level of attention to detail means the bike is tailored to each rider, balanced perfectly underneath, providing a sublime ride.
