We work with a select number of builders to offer our clients a truly custom bike experience. If it´s the incredible ride quality of steel of or the advanced tech of carbon we have you covered. The process always starts the same, with a chat so we can get any idea of what you are looking for and what type of riding you are doing. From there we will get you out testing some bikes, because we firmly believe riding is believing and we have demos bikes of all the builders we offer, allowing you to make a confident choice in what you are buying. Then let´s work on the fitting, this is a custom bike after all, passing on the info to the builder and letting him do what he does best, build a bike for YOU. Now comes the hardest part of the process, the paint, it will take time and consume your mind but we will end up with a bike that speaks your language and expresses you personality. The final build is quite easy, we offer two standard finishing kits for different budgets but we can also look for those special extra exotic bits to really take to the limit!
Below you will find some info on builders we work with as well as some bikes we have built for our customers.
An offshoot the the infamous Vanilla Workshop, Speedvagen is the brainchild of builder Sacha White who wanted to produce semicustom steel racing machines with a relatively short turn around after his Vanilla bikes had reached a two plus year waiting list. Hand built, painted and assembled completely in house in their Portland, Oregon workshop they have gained recognition world wide for their beautiful bikes.
Mattia Pagnotti is an Italian that calls Barcelona home. His passion for frame building came as a young man and cycling had a long family history. Spending time under some of the Italian building greats Mattia honed his skills and builds beautiful bikes though we especially like his work in the gravel bike sector. When he is not in the shop he is typically shredding the hills behind Barcelona or riding his tandem gravel bike with his wife.
Kiko arrived in Barcelona from Italy in 2010 and began his work as a frame builder there after many years as a precision metals worker. He began by working for other builders before finally putting that experience into play by starting his own brand in 2016 with a clear philosophy that aesthetic should follow function, building bike to be ridden everywhere, in every condition and for a long time.
