The Vanilla Workshop is a community -- a collaboration between master fabricators; expert bicycle painters; photographers; wood, leather, fabric and metal workers--all working closely to bring the intelligent, edgy, sexiness of Portland to the rest of the world. At the heart of the workshop is owner, designer and bicycle framebuilder Sacha White. Sacha started building bicycles in the winter of 1999. Now, at just 31 years of age, Sacha is a pioneering member of the new generation of framebuilders. He brings his own experiences as a cyclist and craftsman into the mix to create a bike and a company that reflect the values of hard work, style and uncompromised vision.
