2013 S&M Speedwagon

This has been my trusty trail rig for the last two years.  I've changed it up as parts broke/wore out (so it's not exactly how I'd like it to look), but it rides great.  21.5 lbs as shown (12/31/2016)



After riding a 1999 S&M Challenger at the trails for a few months (early- to mid-2014), I decided to look for a modern replacement. This build started with the chrome frame, which I purchased on eBay for $60.00 USD shipped on 5/15/2014. I then found a red stem and sprocket, so that cemented the deal that I'd build a chrome, red, and black bike. I added the black S&M Speedwagon decals on 5/5/2015 (purchase date), making this probably the first S&M Speedwagon frames to adorn the new decals.

Parts List (as pictured):
Frame:  2013 S&M Speedwagon (chromoly, 21" top tube, chrome plated)

Re: 2013 S&M Speedwagon

Thanks Nick smile .  After breaking my wrist, I spent almost eight months finding high-quality used parts for this bike.  If purchased new, this bike would have cost nearly $2,400.00 (MSRP).  I started with the frame ($60.00 shipped) and now have less than $500.00 into the bike.

If I'm able to ride this bike hard (my wrist is still bad), I plan on adding Paul Motolite V-brakes and rebuilding the wheels with chrome Sun Ringle Envy rims, titanium spokes, and alloy nipples.

Here's a little video of me riding Sheep Hills (Costa Mesa, CA) the week before I broke my wrist hmm .
