Victoire Cycles

​Our latest Whisky Select feature comes from custom frame maker Victoire Cycles out of Beaumont, France. Lightweight, comfortable, and versatile, this dreamy randonneur is built from small-diameter Columbus Life steel tubing for strength and stiffness across long, punishing miles.

Featuring a custom-designed stem, rack, and stunning tri-plane fork hand-shaped in Victoire’s workshop, the frame is clean and free from clutter thanks to internal cable routing and thoughtful touches like a fully integrated seatpost clamp. Its three-color custom metallic paint extends to the mudguards, stem, and fork, creating a cohesive whole set off by sequins.

In the words of Fabien, the bike’s owner, “The magnificent roads of the Cévennes are perfect for realizing [its] potential. Right off the bat, you can tell this bike is made to ride ... a long time in kilometers, and especially over time.”
