The original Speedvagen VX07 kicked off builder Sacha White’s side project 11 years ago. At the time, his Vanilla Workshop custom bike wait times had pushed past a couple years. Speedvagen was born as a way to provide his design aesthetic and build quality to a wider audience, more quickly and in higher numbers, helping to alleviate the demand for full custom bikes. Fast forward and it’s grown into a proper brand of its own making some mighty fine road and cyclocross bikes.
The original model was the VX07, a stripped down, race-ready singlespeed cyclocross bike ready to toe the line right outta the box. To celebrate their 11th anniversary, they’re making exactly 11 replicas. For $7,495 each. And they’ll be built custom to fit the rider.
Like all of Vanilla’s bikes, these will feature an insane attention to detail and pristine finishing touches and clever integrations like the pass-through brake cables.
The complete build specs include:
- Fork: Enve Canti CX
- Wheels: DEEEEP Enve Rims with Chris King R45 hubs
- Tires: Donnelly Tubless PDX
- Brakes: Paul Neo Retro Front / Paul Touring Canti Rear
- Saddle: Fabric Scoop Ti rails

The frame will have all of the features of their standard Speedvagen frame, like an integrated seatmast and super light steel tubing.
