The newest from offering from Victoire Cycles caught me off-guard. Introducing their new Columbus tubing MTB framesets:
“The first Victoire frames designed with a mountain biking use in mind are now available for order. After a long period of testing in our moutains and the purchase of some specific tools, we are now ready to produce MTB frames.
You can choose between three wheels sizes, 26′, 27.5′ and 29′. You can also configure your frame with a singlespeed or a multiple gear transmission. You can also choose your braking system (V-brakes or disc). All the Victoire frames are built with a mix of Columbus Zona or 29er tubes, Reynolds 853 DZB tubes being available as an upgrade.
Frames can be ordered alone or as a kit with headset and fork. The latter can be a handmade rigid one or any model of your choice. Complete bikes with your selection of components are also available.
Orders can be placed now, with a six weeks delivery time. Victoire MTB frames start at 1190 €.”
