Guillaume received his Victoire, the number 180, in 2015. It is a bike dedicated to asphalt and equipped with a rims brakes system. After six years of use, Guillaume wanted to update it and give it a new paint. This is a service that we now offer to all of our customers.

This refurbishment service allows our old customers to return their bikes to us so that they can add options, or receive a new paint. In order not to interfere with the production of new Victoire bikes, we only accept two orders. of this type per quarter.

Guillaume's victory will be followed by that of Rémi, founder of the famous Café du Cycliste brand. We also invite you to (re) discover the Victoire N°217, which also recently underwent a makeover.

Guillaume wanted to keep all of its components after upgrading its frame. It was therefore dismantled and its parts stored. In order to remove the paint made in 2015, the frame was chemically stripped.

Here is Guillaume's Victoire photographed in our workshop in 2015, then in April 2021, after its makeover.

Chris King parts are guaranteed for life by the manufacturer. These durable components have therefore followed the evolution of the bike and fit into its new appearance.

Guillaume's wheels had already been re-radiated on Mavic carbon rims a few years ago, with the same Chris King hubs.

The frame has also passed through the hands of our cameramen so that we can add options that were not available at the time the bike was ordered. Stainless steel bars to protect the socket from the friction of cables and sheaths have been added.

Cups, also in stainless steel, have been brazed at the ends of the socket and allow better visual integration of the headset.

The Sram RED group, of which Guillaume is very happy, remains on the bike, like the other parts.

The idea was to keep as many parts as possible while improving the aesthetics of the bike. Guillaume chose a gradient going from dark gray to light gray. We then suggested adding fine orange glitter to the varnish to create a reminder between the painted parts and the Chris King Mango components.

The logos are painted in the darkest shade of gray used for the top of the gradient. .

Our new graphic identity was therefore adopted by the Victoire N°180. Our management badge. Guillaume also wanted to integrate an important element of our new graphic identity: our management badge, a laurel symbol of Victory.

Tous les composants ont ensuite été assemblés par Tom, notre monteur.

We took the opportunity to paint our new identity marking on the seat tube. We find here the number of the Victoire in question, the logo of our partner Columbus, the name of the tubes used as well as the people involved in the project.

Guillaume came to pick up the new version of his Victoire in person at the showroom.

I appreciate bikes that carry something. There are bikes that I do not part with because there is a story behind.
Guillaume

I approached Victoire because I was looking for a tailor-made bike. I had an interest in Columbus and wanted a unique bike. I had already painted the stem so that it recalls the painting of the frame, and when I came back to make my hubs shine on other circles, I spoke with Julien.

This is where the idea of ​​reworking my bike was born. I did not participate in the enthusiasm that there was for carbon when it became more democratic. I have always favored aluminum or steel. Steel is more comfortable, it allows increased endurance and is therefore quite suitable for use in cyclosportives.

Guillaume discovered the new version of his Victoire, after having received some pictures of details during the editing period.

Guillaume
I feel like it's a new bike !
Guillaume

We wish Guillaume, who plans to participate (if he can) in several cyclosportives, great sensations on the handlebars of his Victoire.

Updating a bike that we produced several years ago and seeing it as new, ready to split the road, prolongs our desire to carry out projects made to last over time.
