Speedhound Only One framesets and the patent-pending Speedhound Dropout System are made in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The ONLY ONE was conceived of and designed by Chris Cleveland, the inventor of the Speedhound Dropout System, and a founder of Speedhound Bikes.

The Speedhound motto is quavis velocitate – Latin for “Go your own speed.” It is pronounced “qua weece way low see ta tay.” (I’ll bet you weren’t expecting that.) In Latin, V is pronounced like our W. C is pronounced just as in English, unlike the “ch” sound of modern Italian. On our frame decal, we followed the old Roman convention of using only capital letters (Romans didn’t have lower case). They also didn’t have the letter U, but used V instead. That’s why we have a V following the Q.
