Speedvagen: F’ Yeah Olive Drab Disc Road Mar 12, 2015

Sure, the paint, the build kit and everything about this bike is dialed. However, it’s easy to overlook that disc caliper mount. On the chainstay, there’s a hole that punches straight through, reducing vibration from the frame to the disc. That’s pretty ingenious.

    The bikes they’ve been putting out lately are just straight jaw dropping. These guys are seriously great!

    not sure how i feel about disc brake road bikes as i have absolutely no experience with them, but that certainly is an innovative feature and looks clean too

    Biggest bike boner in a long time!

    Is the idea behind the rear caliper mounting that the caliper itself supports the chainstay and seatstay?

    Such a bling bike … and then a mismatched Salsa QR. I so want Chris King to start making color-matched skewers to go with their hubs.

        Hey John have you had a chance to ride the SV road? Just wondering your thoughts on the discs? They sure do look amazing so they ride as nice as they look?
