There are two things we’re excited about with the Speedvagen Urban Racer… One, the name. Two, the details. We’re suckers for quality, detailed craftsmanship and the Speedvagen is oozing with subtle details. And with a company name like Speedvagen… how much more branding pizzazz could you ask for? The Urban Racer along with every other model in their line-up is hand built in the Portland, Oregon shop. The bike is about having fun. While aptly designed as a commuter or sport bike, the true essence of the Urban Racer is fun.
It’s about being able to slide around on wet surfaces like you used to as a kid… while on your way to work. And hopefully you actually make it into the office instead of the ER with a broken arm. But hey, at least you’d have a cool story to tell. Speedvagen takes their design philosophy and build construction seriously. Their attention to detail is obsessive. And the bike is supremely balanced. The finished product isn’t cheap, but one well worth the price tag. Photo © Speedvagen.
