Each tailor-made project brings its share of challenges. Especially when a customer asks us for a “first”, that is, a feature or a design that we have never produced before.
James came to the workshop with two well-defined ideas: his program, namely beautiful bikepacking projects including 1200km from Hendaye to Roscoff in September, and the spirit of his bike, influenced by klunker bikes and the work of ‘an English cameraman who inspires us regularly, Stooge.
Let’s face it, accepting this project generated a certain adrenaline in the workshop, and the satisfaction that we derive from the result is all the stronger! Thank you James for your trust, and may your adventures be beautiful!
