GENESIS

Fond of long distance cycling, Jean was looking for a modern randonneuse. He didn’t find a bike that suits his needs on the market so he went for a bespoke one, handcrafted in France.

Our clients’ feedback and our creations convinced him to trust in our experience to build his dream bike :

I ordered my Victoire before the first Concours de Machines, but the bike presented by the team confirmed me it was the right choice. Moreover, my wife’s name is Victoire, so it was a nice tribute to her. I really liked to take time to discuss with the team to think over my project and make it evolved.

 

THE PROJECT

Jean’s demands were close to the ones of the first editions of the Concours de Machine :

I was looking for a sportive randonneur bike, to ride in autonomy for several days, but without overlook the performance, with a stainless steel frame and a high-end groupset. The disc braking was mandatory for me to ride in every conditions, like the autonomous light system. The fenders bring comfort when the weather is bad. 

I also wanted a maximum of handcrafted parts on my bike : frame, fork, stem but also the front rack because I didn’t find anything that suits my needs on the market.

 

TECHNICAL SPECS 

Jean’s Bellevue is made of Columbus XCR stainless steel tubing. Cable routing is internal, through small stainless guide brazed inside the tubes.

Like the fork, the stem is also made in our workshop. Our signature model "René" with its three arms constructions features eyelets to integrate the décaleur, also handcrafted, on its lower part.

At last, the rack is designed in two independent parts, the randonneur rack and the lowrider, to adapt the loading according to the distance.

Jean chose the new Campagnolo Record H11 disc groupset for his bike. The wheels, laced with care in our shop on Mavic Open Pro rims, get a Tune Kong hub at the rear, and a SON Delux 12 dynamo one in front. 

 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

It is a beautiful piece of craftmanship, very nice to look, to touch. It’s a first contact, we’ll suffer together. Beyond suiting my demands, it’s the result of a long term project. My aim is to be at the start of Paris-Brest-Paris in 2019 with this bike.
