Speedmachine mit Untenlenker on Tour

Speedmachine Specification

For our complete bike we have chosen a set of reliable components. Instead of specifying a complete component group from one manufacturer, we selected those parts which offer the best combination of performance and value for money.

We have chosen parts for their robustness, reliability, consistent good function and simple operation.

With it's low center of gravity, the Speedmachine allows for extremely fast stopping without losing control. Maximum stopping power is provided by the optional disc brakes, enabling secure downhill rides.

The Speedmachine rolls on stiff wheels with silver anodized aero rims. High performance race tires from Schwalbe provide low rolling resistance and good cornering ability.

If you want to ride your Speedmachine completely with your own choice of parts, we can supply our framework kit for your dealer to build with the parts of your choice. We fit the rear suspension and the forks and the rest is up to you.

Our accessoiries make a brilliant bike perfect. You can choose from a range of well-tested parts: Take a look for example at our light system with stand light, fed by the original Schmidts hub generator "delux" ultralight version (see price list). This light system is the perfect solution for those, who are bothered by slipping generators, empty batteries and bad cable routing.
