The basic Speedmachine comes with an ergonomic BodyLink seat, above-seat steering, SRAM DualDrive 24, Avid V-brakes, and a rigid front fork.
The steering geometry has been revised to promote stable straight-line handling with luggage, helped by the long 117cm wheelbase. An optional indirect under-seat steering option gives a very relaxed arm position that may not be quite as aerodynamic as the standard above-seat steering, but it is more relaxed for long rides and offers the rider an uninterrupted view forward.
The seat height is relatively high 48cm , is more car-driver friendly, and allows more secure participation in traffic.
The comfortable BodyLink Seat adjusts to the natural S- shape of the
spine: the combination of a rigid anatomically shaped seat base and a
slightly curved back rest with a flexible intermediate section offers
the rider perfect support over a large area. A Mesh Seat is also available.
Full suspension offers a relaxed yet exciting ride, even on cobbles. HP Velotechnik's No-Squat Design effectively prevents pedal-induced bounce, so you can really push the pedals uphill. Front suspension is via a head-tube unit from Concept with an aluminum fork. This helps to bring the weight down to 14.3kg.
