Sacha White and his Vanilla and Speedvagen bicycles are a perennial favorite at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show. The 2011 show was no exception. He brought both highly-detailed understated creations like a children’s mixte bike and brash, in-your-face creations like his hot pink Di2 road bike. White’s workshop-themed booth offered morning coffee and groovy tunes throughout the day. For those not lucky enough to be on the Vanilla waiting list, White offered t-shirts, hats, and Speedvagen wellingtons.
This Speedvagen road bike either sent people running or drew them in. The matching pink grenades were a theme at the Vanilla booth. Photo: Nick Legan | VeloNews.com
