The Speedmachine has changed quite a bit over time – it started out as almost a race bike, but has mellowed a bit with age 😉
The Speedmachine’s real talent has always been it’s combination of fast and fun performance with full suspension comfort – it’s a lively and manoeuvrable bike that’s great fun to chuck into corners or power down the straight, but it won’t jar your teeth out either.
With a few changes, the Speedmachine can be a fast touring or Audax bike – it has the option of underseat steering for a more relaxed (though slightly less aerodynamic) position, and rear and lowrider carriers means it can carry four panniers. It can also have the same Ergomesh or Bodylink seats as used on most other HPVelotechnik bikes and trikes.
So the Speedmachine is really two bikes in one – it can be specced as a fast race bike with aero bars, or a comfortable tourer with underseat bars and full carriers – or anything inbetween…
To order, you can specify all the options on the HPVelotechnik Configurator – then enter the configuration number on our Configurator Order Form, and I’ll get things under way. The build time is usually around 4-5 weeks.
