Victoire for En Selle, De Ville & Petit Bi

The France I know is synonymous with three things: the Tour, food & wine, and fashion. While fashionistas may not make up a large percentage of this site’s readership the frankly French aesthetics of Cycles Victoire’s bespoke work, on behalf of boutique de vélo En Selle Marcel should please any cyclist’s palate.
