The Cycles Andouard shop has just celebrated its 30th anniversary. Intially a seller, Philippe, the owner, discovered handmade bicycles 25 years ago thanks to a frame builder. The latter will train him to manufacture steel frames during 2 years.
1996 will be an essential year, during which Philippe Andouard will build a bike combining a 700 front wheel and a 650 rear wheel, that he will ride accross France, raising the awareness about his savoir-faire.
Still a real passionate, he proposes the production of labeled "randonneuses" as well as tandems. He also lately constructed a very modern stainless frame with an electric group completely integrated.
The Concours de Machines' spirit matches Philippe's values, a mix of innovation, reliability, and aesthetic of steel frames.
