Why go for a Victoire bespoke bicycle ?

Why go for a Victoire bespoke bicycle ?

Bespoked bicycles, made in France

Each Victoire bike is designed, built and painted in France. Besides being a responsible and civicminded approach - by supporting our local economy - it enables us to control with precision each step of the manufacturing, to offer you a high quality product, which perfectly fits your needs.

Tailor-made bicycles, unique and very personal

A Victoire bicycle is unique, so is the experience. Each creation is the result of a common thought with our client, combining both his cycling experience and our technical expertise. Discussing the project, taking measurement, selecting the tubing, designing the geometry and at last building the bike are many steps that require great attention. Each project is made with the greatest care, to meet perfectly our clients' needs.

A wide range for every cyclist

At Victoire, we all come from different backgrounds and we are still curious to explore new horizons. This open-mindedness and diversity enable us to cross our experiences to meet each cyclist’s requirements in the best possible way.

A rich experience

Each project is the occasion for us to progress and gain new skills. From our first Bike-Polo prototypes to more complex projects such as the tandem, randonneur or TT bike, we made about 300 bespoke bicycles, meaning as many different clients and needs.

A high quality level

Our tailored bicycles meet a high level of requirements. We use the best tools on the market to adjust with precision the geometry and the handling of our frames.

A wide range of finishes

Besides the handling of your bike, you can custom your frame thanks to a wide range of finishes in order to make it even more unique.

Bicycles designed to ride, with a fun and performant handling

A Victoire bespoke bicycle is not only a bike with a unique style. It primarily is a bike designed for you to fully enjoy all of your rides. Cycling is our passion. It allows us to push our limits, to explore the world, to share new experiences and to meet new people. A Victoire bike is designed like a tool to make the most of these moments : it has to be reliable, comfortable, performant and fun to ride.

Bicycles designed to last

Being the owner of a Victoire bespoke bicycle requires some patience, but it will be built so as to last for a long time. If you put this in perspective, the lead time is not that long. It is common to find a 10, 20 or 30 years old steel bike that rides like the first day, as steel's technical specifications are long-lasting, and the stainless ones even more. Moreover, if you crash with you bike and the damages are not irreversible, we can repair it.

A time to think over your project

The delay between your order and the start of the fabrication is not a waste of time : it is essential. It enables us to think over your project and to precisely define your needs. Making the decision to buy  a bespoke bicycle, that will follow you during a part of your life, is important. It happens that some customers initially order a MTB to finally go for a road bike, or upgrade their project from a steel to a stainless frame. The market evolving quickly,  you can also adjust your equipment during this period. Finally, we are here to talk about your specification and make your fitting. You can also test some of our bicycles and take part in customers’ events where you can meet and share with owners of Victoire bikes.

Follow the fabrication of your bespoke bicycle

From the mittering of tubing to the final built, we take photos of each step of your bespoke bicycle manufacturing that we share with you so you can follow its creation.

Clients’ feedback...:

"I first planned to buy a carbon frame but the one I wanted was not available in my size"
"I first planned to buy a carbon frame but the one I wanted was not available in my size. At the same time, I saw a cyclist with this bike that used to be a dream but aesthetically, it was already out of fashion. I realized that this kind of consumption wasn't for me and as I want to ride my bike for a long time, I wanted something personnal and timeless. I did not want to order a bike like we order on internet and sum up a custom frame to a bike fitting, a paint and a budget. It was important for me to come visit you, talk about each details and get your feedbacks on the parts."

" I think I have discovered a new way to ride a bike"
" I think I have discovered a new way to ride a bike. You go out from your house, and follow the signs, your instinct or chance, you will not be limited by the machine. A smooth road of unpaved, a muddy path : no problem. What is there at the end of this road ? We do not know and it is better : we will explore. Eventually, it is maybe the most natural way to ride a bike. Let's talk about the bike itself : On the first spin, the feeling is great. My hands come naturally on the lever, my body is perfectly positionned : not too high, not too low, juste the good balance. What a pleasure to seat on bike really designed for me! It is so natural that it is almost magic !"

" I am 99% sure that I wouldn't have achieved it with my previous bike"
" I am 99% sure that I wouldn't have achieved it with my previous bike. There is a huge gap with the Victoire ! I wanted a triple crankset at first but I decided to listen to your advices. Thanks to the adapted ratio (a 46/34 double chainring combined with a 11-36 cassette) I was able to climb everywhere. Moreover, the bike was very reliable during the trip, so I could travel without thinking about mechanical issues” “I could have a walk in the evening and visit the village where I stopped without feeling tired. I had big pains in the neck with my previous bike, and it never happened during these 1000K”

"The comfort really surprised me"
"The comfort really surprised me : my position is perfect. Both with my hand at the top or the bottom of the drop bar, I feel very good. Although a 1h30 ride is not enough to have a definitive judgment, I feel well on the Berthoud saddle too. In conclusion, congratulation to the team, my bike is a success ! It has been a long time project, I thought about it for about 2 years but now I just have to daily enjoy it !"

"I realized that the Victoire Véloce is a very tolerant bike that enables climb without suffering too much"
"Even though I was not well prepared, I realized that the Victoire Véloce is a very tolerant bike that enables climb without suffering too much. The position helps a lot to push the limits, and on this point, I can thank the tailor-made ! I have a climber profile and I am used to climb standing up on the pedals. However, I suprised myself to climb 90% of the time sat on the saddle. I just have to find the right ratio and I do not move : what a pleasure. It is quite impressive, I improve my uphill performances. I am not in a particularly good shape at the moment but I must admit that the bike helps me a lot. Despite its 7.5 kg and the aluminium wheels, I climb the hills on smaller sprockets than last year. By the way, the handcrafted wheelset built by Victoire is great, both dynamic and stiff : it is just perfect ! No true, the pads are set perfectly on the rims and it never rubs. And the Chris King hubs, they are so smooth"

"The bike is both reactive and comfortable, exactly what I asked for !"
"The bike is both reactive and comfortable, exactly what I asked for ! It filters very well the road imperfections. The position is very comfortable and is very pleasant to look. It is very stable and handy when going downhill, and it is going very smoothly on flat roads. I can slighlty feel the excess weight compared to my former carbon bike in the climb, but it is largely offsetted by the comfort. I do not suffer from back pain anymore"

" I can really feel the difference of comfort compared to my former Look bike, it is smooth ! "
" I can really feel the difference of comfort compared to my former Look bike, it is smooth ! On flat roads, it is easy to keep a good rythm during several hours. On hilly terrains, you go at a regular pace. Of course it is not a pure climber but the additional weight compared to my Look is making up for the gain in comfort. "

"Comfort and ability to climb fast and smooth immediately strike me"
"Comfort and ability to climb fast and smooth immediately strike me, 2 essential keys for my riding style that have consistently proved the concept since the very first ride! Going downhill on rocky terrain puts a smile on my face every time, confidence is growing, the bike is my ultimate mountain weapon! A big thanks to Victoire for selling beautiful bikes, thanks to Victoire for selling fun! "

"I was really captivated by the discovering of my bike ! Aesthetically, it is exactly what I wanted."
"I was really captivated by the discovering of my bike ! Aesthetically, it is exactly what I wanted. I totally trusted Julien for the paint and the result is above my expectations. On the road, it is a delight ! I was supposed to be used to a comfortable bike with my Specialized Roubaix, but no : the Victoire is a magic carpet, it surfs on the road ! It is really efficient and performant. The only drawback so far is my legs ! It's a great joy to ride this bike, it has a big potential : we go fast without realizing it, the steering is direct and the breaking is super smooth !"

"I appreciate the ergonomics and simplicity of the 1x11 SRAM but mostly my new position"
"I appreciate the ergonomics and simplicity of the 1x11 SRAM but mostly my new position that permitted the eradication of neck pains and contractures problems. The comfort and the road handling reconciled me with long distances. I am more than convinced by the attributes of a steel frame adapted to our own practice. I will greatly promote and advise Victoire’s team as, besides the actual products aspect, I strongly support your work based on pleasure, passion and French handmade production."

"I am really satisfied with my bike. It is comfortable while being efficient"
"I am really satisfied with my bike. It is comfortable while being efficient: which is a good compromise. I could even make my laps longer. My average speed also increased on my reference tracks, with the same wheels as the ones on my old bike. My position is improved, allowing me to pedal more efficiently. When going downhill, the bike surely is stable. My Victoire Véloce perfectly meets my requirements. Patience is required but it is definitely worth it. Bonus: the internal route for the cables is really well done. Changing them is a piece of cake, guidance is perfect."
