GENESIS

Despite a break of about fifteen years, Loïc is fond of cycling since his childhood :

I’ve always enjoy riding my bike, both in Brittany with my family or in the countryside around Paris. I stopped - mistakenly - after I got my driving license. I’ve started again just before I was 40. I ride on road and gravel, both for the adventure and the effort, to push my limits.

I ordered a bespoke Victoire bike for several reasons. I have had enough of the stock bicycles that are systematically out of fashion each year. It is also the choice of getting something unique, durable, handcrafted in France and built specifically for me. I also tried a Véloce at the Café du Cycliste in Nice last year, and its qualities convinced me.

 

THE PROJECT 

I wanted a bike both performant and comfortable, that mixed classic references and modern technical choices. A timeless clean looking bike, that highlights the craftmanship.

Loïc’s frame is made of Columbus XCR stainless steel tubing. We find the specs of our disc road bikes : Thru-Axle, T47 bottom brackets, Flatmount brake mount… It is built with the SRAM 22 HRD groupset and carbon wheels laced in house on Chris King R45 hubs. The final weight of the frame is 8.55 kg.

 

 

FIRST RIDES 

I really enjoyed the first ride on my Véloce, a unique object, handcrafted for me.  It was the result of a long project.

It meets my requirements. The bike is well balanced and rides without any noise. It also filters well the road bumps, and I feel better at the end of the ride compared to my previous Pinarello. The pain I had on ischiums after 3h on the saddle has disappeared. The ride quality is really good as well, the bike is very responsive and I do not feel the additional weight compared to my Pinarello. At last, it is real pleasure to fully trust into his machine in the downhills.

I am really happy with my Véloce, and I can not wait to live more adventures with it.
