The second Victoire tandem

The second Victoire tandem

Maybe you have already seen it recently on  Cycle Exif, our second tandem has recently come out from our workshop. It is designed for a father, who is already the owner of this Victoire Bellevue roadbike, and its son.

There are both very tall, so we worked a lot on the design to make the bike comfortable for the two riders while keeping it well-proportioned.  They are riding the most often on roads but they can also go off sometimes, that's why we designed it as a gravel bike. The frame is made of Columbus Zona and Life tubing , with a huge 220mm top tube. They were fillet-brazed in house, like the unicrown forkmade with Reynolds tubing. It is painted with a red ruby clear coat which allows to highlight Erwan's skills, our welder, with the torch.

To support these two strong guys, we have selected a reliable, but light, and efficient building. The wheels are one of the most important things on this kind of bike. That's why we chose the best parts to build in house the wheelset. The hubs are made by Hope in the UK. They provide a specific tandem 36H rear hub with a steel freewheel, stronger than a  classic aluminium one. The rims are 23mm wide HplusSon Archetype laced with DT Swiss Alpine spokes with a 2,3mm diameter at the top. 
The groupset has also to be resistant, so we chose a Shimano Ultegra Tandem, designed to resist to two cyclists. At least, we selected Formula RO DH brakes with 2 pieces rotor  to compensate thermal expansion.

At the end, despite this strong building, the bike weigh only 15kg, which is quite a performance for a bike with a huge headtube and top tube.

The price of the complete bicycle is 6500€.
