Philippe's Victoire Véloce

Philippe's Victoire Véloce

The project

Philippe is a local customer, who likes to ride around our mountains, sometimes with his wife on her electric assisted bicycle. He also regularly goes to the Alps or Long Ventoux for one week bike trips.

Receptive to the pure lines of our bicycles, Philippe wanted a timeless bicycle, a perfect mix between the classicism of the stainless steel construction and the latest innovations from the bike industry.

 

Technical details

Philippe choose the stainless steel « XCr » range from the italian manufacturer Columbus. Unusual point for a stainless steel Victoire : the entire frame is painted with a really light grey, only highlighted by the deep black Victoire logos. The classic paint scheme emphasize the pure lines of the frame.

All the components are sourced in the USA. The groupset comes from Sram, with a Red22 Etap model. Philippe wanted to keep the proven and reliable 11 speeds set-up with classics 50/34 chainrings on front and a 11/32 cassette.

Philippe selected all bearings from Chris King, with headset, bottom brackets and hubs. You cannot go wrong with a 5 years to 10 years warranty on these parts. Post, stem and bars comes from Thomson, another USA manufacturer, rims are the really light, low profile Enve and the titanium cages are produced by Ron Andrews from King Cages.

 

The postural study, made in the workshop during one entire day, associated to the spring effect of the stainless steel construction and the comfort of the tubeless ready tires will provide a really smooth ride to Philippe, no matter how rough the roads will be.
