VANILLA WORKSHOP SPEEDVAGEN Road

This is an older original SPEEDVAGEN..... from my understanding its when Sacha still brazed and Desalvo TIG'd them. Ive been told back in those 1st few years, Sacha would braze up the backends......the dropouts are brazed to the stays, the seattopper sleeve was brazed....etc. The main triangles were then all TIG'ed by Mike who would drive up from Ashland.

A quick mock up, fits great so far. Feels light for steel, it 4.3 kg / 9.5 lbs as she sits, here's some crappy cell phone photos, look much better in person..........

I like the paint. Weight should be around 7kg. What size frame and what tubing does it have.

Well done sir! Could you get your desired drop with a (debadged) -10° Pro stem? Or a -12° Extralite? That would lovely match the top tube angle. Otherwise, nothing I would change. And 1600gr is a pretty low weight for a steel frame of that size. I suppose it was weighted without headset or BB?

+1. I think a -10/12 deg would look way better, but otherwise awesome bike and build!

How is the ride? I am trying to decide between a steel, Ti, or Carbon / Ti combo for my next bike. Only have experience on carbon bikes and not sure which way to go.
