For those unfamiliar with Manivelle, they are French frame builders, Thomas, and Silvan, based in Strasbourg, crafting custom bikes for long distances, whether it is on road or on singletracks. They build no more than 2 bikes a month, this maintains their passion for framebuilding and means every build is a truly personal project for everyone involved.
Perhaps you remember seeing their Concours de Machines build in 2021? When Silvin reached out looking for custom bags for this project we jumped at the chance. This is how we got to know Manivelle, but we since found out we have a lot in common; their roots are in cycle touring, just like us, and they also share our enthusiasm for highly crafted, locally made things.
