Luc is part of Chilkoot, oa cycling collective organizing events like Born to Ride, or La Traversée des Alpes by fixed gear made by Thierry Saint-Léger during last summer. Luc is also the happy owner of a Victoire Versus made in April last year. He used to ride fixed gear on a Bianchi frame and wanted to change it to a new handmade frame. This new Victoire bicycle is a perfect compromise between a road bike and a track bike, offering a different way to ride bicycles, with the same spirit as the precursors that did the Tour de France in the first years of the 20th century.

We used Tange Ultimate et Prestige Japan tubing to produce this special frame. the Ultimate tubing from Tange use a special alloy that allow to use really thin walled tubing, 0.3mm at the center. This provide a smooth and light ride, perfect for long distance rides. the bicycle ends up at only 6.7kg, built with custom Mavic wheels, Easton components and a Columbus Grammy.

Luc received his new toy just before christmas, and already rode hundreds of kilometers, training for the differents events planned by Chilkoot on 2015. To follow the collective, you can visit their website or their Facebook page.
