THE VICTOIRE VÉLOCE TESTED BY MATOS VÉLO
Finally, if it was the ultimate bicycle ? Ultimate because it is often a long thought purchase, something you buy for you and not to impress the others. This bike does not leave indifferent.
He liked the comfort of the bike on long rides :
After more than 4 hours of riding, the comfort compared to a carbon bike is impressive. It is difficult to explain this feeling, especially as the position is more agressive than I use to be. But despite this, I have not got any pain. And if, finally, carbon bikes are too stiff for most of us ?
He also noticed the reactivity :
It is not because it is comfortable that it is not stiff. The bike is really reactive and there is this special handling proper to steel, this elasticity when you push on the pedals. It is a really nice feeling. You do not climb faster, but whatever your pace, the bike is living. If you want to push it and do some accelerations, it will also follow you and transmit perfectly the power to the rear wheel.
