When people talk about their dream superbike, this is what they are talking about! An ultralight steel roadie at only 16 pounds! The top tier Speedvagen frame is kitted to the max with the best parts available, no expense spared! The build starts with deep dish ENVE SES 6.7 carbon rims, a full kit of mango Chris King to match the orange spots in the paint (headset, hubs, BB, cassette lockring). The Super Record 11 gruppo has the "11" in the logo custom painted orange, as well as the S on the saddle. Speaking of paint, the paint is a one-off custom paintjob by Speedvagen. They have uovsed these patterns before, but never in these colors. If you're going to go this fast, you may as well measure your performance with the Quarq crankset's power meter. As built, this would have had an original price of around $10,000.
This bike is too small for me, and that is the ONLY reason I am selling this beauty! It's ride quality is lightning quick, and it planes wonderfully for me thanks to the ultralight tubing. It rails in corners with impressive traction and confidence. If you're a mountain biker, you know the feeling of taking a banked turn at speed and snapping out of it. That is how this bike feels on pavement.
Frame size (see geometry chart in pics)
*note that the seatmast has been cut shorter by Vanilla. Vanilla told me there's a Ritchey cap with 25mm of setback that can be modified to fit this, and it's possible you could find a taller cap. Saddle height range with current setup is ~668mm to 683mm. Luckily the current S-works saddle is among the lowest stack height of any saddle at 38.5mm. For comparison a Fizik Arione carbon is 45mm, and a Brooks Pro is 58mm and even more for a B17 or Cambium. Changing saddles is an easy way to get the max height up. Also, Vanilla can replace or add to the seat mast safely to make it taller.
Speedvagen now has an ENVE topper made for 35mm of adjustment vs this one's 15mm.

Excellent+ to near mint very well cared for condition. It was owned by an avid rider with numerous high tier bicycles, and was built and maintained by pro level mechanics. It is super clean, and passes for brand new at 2 feet away. The frame has absolutely ZERO dents, bends, cracks, rust, or other damage. The seatmast cap and the underside of the driveside chainstay show the heaviest paint wear. Otherwise, the frame is mostly scratch free, but there are a few minor paint chips. None are through to the metal, but show the white base paint layer: 1) Top tube on the dark grey square just under the saddle nose 2) two 2mm chips on the non-drive side of seat tube 3) two 1mm chips on the non-drive seatstay near the brake caliper 4) a few 1-2mm paint chips on the underside of the seatstay at the intersection of the seat tube 5) a couple 1mm chips on stem faceplate 6) a cluster of paint wear/chips on the underside of bb shell and adjoining downtube 7) a bit of general paint wear on the non-drive chainstay at dropout.
Components are primarily near mint to mint. The crank is clean as can be, with only ano wear on teeth and one tiny ding in the non-drive arm end. Rear derailleur is scuffed all along the bottom edge but near mint otherwise. Brakes are mint, pads have ~90% life left. Chain/chainrings/cassette, bar tape, cables clean and wear free. Tires only have a few hundred miles on them. Wheels are true and free of cosmetic marks. Ergo levers have a light scuffing on the right side's body piece that holds the lever pivot & just a couple very minor clear coat wear spots but look mint unless looking very hard. All other components not mentioned are mint.
