WOW - first one I have seen in that color. Looks great...thats actually the color I went with for my order.

I have search every damn website and have yet to find a Lavender one in a Road Version and this is the first. Cant wait to build mine...

Looking good. :beerchug:

OH man, you've just added "Lilac" as the second color on my list of desired dream frames!

That's stellar. When you get a chance, could you take some proper photos of it to really highlight the build and the paint job? The initial photos are a bit washed out (with the exception of the picture from the rear).

Absolutely luscious!

One quibble though, the glossy and perforated handlebar tape is too... Complicated. It's an attention grabber

Before I die I will own a Speedvagen or Vanilla bike, and this bike just affirmed that for me.

That is one gorgeous bike!

Different housing color ruins it. Otherwise quite nice!

It could be...probably not...but if you knew about SpeedVagens...only 3 colors available + the Surprise Me for their runs. White, Army Green, Lavender, and SM for 2011. I went for the Lavender as well - different and just sick looking. Just waiting for the frame to arrive. Probably another month or two Im hoping.

For a SpeedVagen...why roll something a bit blah..."Lilac" was a great choice. If I was in the 2012 list, I would go with the Pank one. Cant complain...looks good in Lavender.

I am trying to decide, do I like the spanky black stem you have on there, or do I prefer the custom painted one, like here:
http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/main. ... mId=395638

Your stem looks meaner, tougher, and more businesslike in black, but the painted stem looks more "custom" and is certainly more unusual than a black thompson.

I am thinking aloud as I contemplate ordering my own frame.
