The project

Jean-Marc discovered road cycling 12 years ago. He regularly takes part into sportives. He contacted us after he saw our work into 200 - le vélo de route autrement magazine : 

Since I started cycling, I have always dreamt to get a bespoke frame. I have immediately appreciated the philosophy of Victoire, the craftmanship and to be in contact with a young team. I trusted in you from our first discussion, it was clear and I got precious advices, like for the handcrafted wheels. I never thought I could get such components on my bike. When I came for the fitting, it confirmed I did the right choice. I could meet the people that will take part into my project. 

 

Specifications 

Jean-Marc had some pains in the back and the shoulders on his previous carbon bike. Thanks to the fitting, we could determine his ideal position to solve these problems.

Our client was looking for a performant road bike, so we use tubing from the Columbus HSS range. The top tube with its 31.7mm diameter and its hexagonal shape improves the lateral stiffness. The 44mm downtube has a different shape at each end, to improve the stiffness around the key areas of the bottom bracket and the headtube. The rear is made of HSS seatstays and Life chainstays, a perfect option to get the right balance between performance and comfort.

 

Equipement 

Our vision of tailor-made goes beyond designing a geometry. We deal with the whole bike, and each components is carefully selected to suit our client's needs and budget. For Jean-Marc's project, we paid a particular attention to the drivetrain and the wheel.

The SRAM Rival 22 groupset offers an excellent functioning/price ratio but the crankset is a bit heavy. We chose the Force one, in carbon, whom the save on weight justifies the higher price. We change the chainrings for Spécialités TA ones - made in France - of 48 and 36 teeth, to offer to our client a range of gears that fits his riding.  

The wheels were handcrafted in house, from Mavic Open Pro rims laced to Hope RS4 hubs. The wheelset weighs only 1400g for a good price and a high reliability.

A bespoke Victoire bike is an addition of services and details which results into a perfect balanced machine, both in the aesthetic and the handling.  

 

First feedback & future projects

Jean-Marc did not hide his enthusiasm about his bespoke road bike :

I will enjoy it, it is sure. We will spend a lot of time together, I  feel like a child in front of a new toy !
