The Mustang was the first bike produced by SpeedX.
It was a hard-tail Mountain Bike with 26″ wheels, that was really only available to the Chinese Domestic Market, and a few carefully selected Retailers in a handful of local countries.
Alongside Disc Brakes, the Mustang also incorporated an early version of the SpeedForce Cycling Computer version 2.
The Mustang, the only Mountain Bike in the SpeedX range, is a hard-tail bike (front Shock Absorbers only) and was made from a mix of T800 and T700 carbon.
The wheels are 26″ Novatec and were paired with a RockShox XC 28 suspension fork.
The group-set is Shimano Deore, and the brakes are provided by Tektro HD-M285 discs, with finishing kit that includes a SpeedX alloy handlebar and seat-post, saddle, and the integrated GPS computer (SpeedForce v2)
It cost £650 / $800 / €800, and came in three sizes: 15″, 17″ and 19″ and one colour, Black and Red.
Details are very sketchy, as the Mustang wasn’t promoted to the Western cycling community.
The Mustang was launched on one of the Chinese Crowdfunding platforms, in the early part of 2015. They were successfully sold, and were delivered in early 2016, about the same time as the promotion for the SpeedX Leopard started.
They sold reasonably well in China, but accurate figures are impossible to confirm.
A number were sold off and ended up on the Chinese Wholesale site, Alibaba, as Battery Powered E-Bikes.
