Speedvagen Disc OG, the Original Gangster gets a Disc Brake Upgrade

Speedvagen’s stock, factory-build Ready Made series gets a new addition today with the announcement of the Disc OG. The all steel Original Gangster gets a little more modern thanks to flat mount disc brakes and thru-axles.

The Disc OG, like their other Ready Made bikes, is available only as a single complete bike option. You can lock in a purchase with a $500 deposit, then Vanilla Workshop builds them in batches based on demand. Offering a single complete package for speed and efficiency is the underlying concept, but don’t let that deter you if you want to make some changes. You can pick from Army Green or Vanilla Blue paint in either matte or gloss finish and select from some extra ENVE carbon upgrades if you feel up to it.

Speedvagen‘s build here is pretty damn close to perfect. Sure it’s no-frills but with a complete Shimano Ultegra R8000 mechanical/hydraulic groupset, alloy Easton EA70SL wheels with 28mm Donnelly Strada LGG tires it’s a good balance of functionality, performance and reliability. The cockpit is equally solid with an alloy PRO bar & stem, alloy Ritchey seatpost head, and ti-railed Fabric Scoop saddle. If you want to shell out some more cash Di2 or eTap are available upgrades if the stock Ultegra isn’t flashy enough.

The new bike is welded from Speedvagen’s premium multi-butted steel tubeset, with their signature seat mast and swooping hourglass seatstays. The integrated seatmast is cut to length for each buyer. The Disc OG as the name entails, is built around flat mount disc brakes and 12mm thru-axles, front & rear. Up front is an ENVE Disc Road fork.

Geometry is race-ready with six stock sizes available (50-60cm). The Disc OG has clearance for up to 32mm tires. A complete bike will run $5995. ENVE cockpit upgrades and groupset changes will add to that price.
