Helen’s versatile bike
Hélène used to ride a race bike, but the racy position was feeling more and more uncomfortable and sometimes even stressful. That’s why she had abandoned cycling to focus on running.
But during a holiday in Spain renting a mountain bike made her want to start cycling again.
She wanted a bike that was practical, reassuring and efficient at the same time. She realized that the position on the bike made a big difference. The bike fit allowed us to define a nice position without compromising the pedaling efficiency. The lowered and curved top tube is part of this philosophy of “bike pleasure”.
Finally, it was important to give this bike a name: Versatile,that brings us a more pleasant sounds than “polyvalent” in french.
