Im not sure what fork it has but I test fit some Zipp SL Speed 27s on a Reynolds Aero 58 tubular with no fit issues at all.

Nice bike. Although, I still don't get why Speedvagen always put the year it was built

Thx, and I'm not sure, overall I wish I knew more about this frame and SpeedVagen when it was built.

Thx, I took everything apart including removing the Speedvagen emblems on the head tube and chain stays, then a buddy of mine did some paint touch up. After than I cleaned it all inside and out, then polished and waxed. Now she is ready for the build.

dont' quote me on this but I'm pretty sure the following is true.

2007. CX only. full custom. Sacha brazed, Desalvo TIG'd
2008. CX only but with a stock option. Sacha brazed, Desalvo TIG'd
2009. Road and CX. Sacha brazed, Desalvo TIG'd

Jason was doing most of the prep work...things expanded rapidly after that...Road orders soon be gan to overtake cx.

So there is a chance Sacha actual build my frame ?

yes, sorta. back in those 1st few years, Sacha would braze up the backends...the dropouts are brazed to the stays, the seattopper sleave was brazed...etc. The main triangles were then all TIG'ed by Mike who would drive up from ashland and weld them en masse.

Nice back story, who did the paint or who else was involved ?

Thx

That is the understanding that I have as well. Mine was fully built by Sacha because it was built on a short timeline for NAHBS 2010 and I asked him to fillet braze it. To my knowledge, mine was the first FB'd Vagen, as he refused at first, but changed his mind later.

In any case, Mike D is an equally skilled welder, so either way, you have a nicely made bike! I own a Desalvo CX as well

He fillet brazed the prototype for the 2006 NAHBS but knew that it wasn't economical. I Can't believe you got him to do another! That prototype even had the custom stem with an integrated topcap , but that never made it into production either.

The Zipps look better than the Reynolds - at least from the pics shown - but after seeing Mr. King's alloy tubulars, maybe you should just join the trendsetters and go with those?
