Discover Benoit’s Manivelle N°54!
Looking back on this project once delivery is complete, the quality of the discussions with Benoit comes to the surface. Benoit already has experience, both in adventure and in equipment. So our discussions are rich, and we can move forward with confidence in every choice made for the project, right down to the different configurations the bike will have : a playful gravel for day trips with sprinting to the signpost, a gravel with custom racks for bikepacking trips, a gravel that can also be transformed into a high-capacity travel bike for longer adventures. The little surprise reserved for Benoit when we unveiled the bike’s geometry: this curved seat tube allows generous mudguards to be fitted without enlarging chainstays lenghts.
The delivery of Benoit’s Manivelle N°54 takes place at the beginning of August, just in time for Benoit to take his bike in hand for an imminent bikepacking adventure. A beautiful custom-made frame bag produced by a friend of him is about to be fitted into the front triangle, using the inserts provided. Custom front and rear racks will be paired with beautiful confections from Gramm Tourpacking. The result is a project full of details , thanks to the rich desires of its new owner.
Thank you Benoit for your confidence and your smile which nourished every meeting at the workshop, a wonderful adventure to you!
