We met Matthieu, the framebuilder behind Pechtregon Cycles, in Eroica Hispania, just before he was about to embark on the Concours des Machines. This is a unique competion for bike artisans that evaluates their bikes, not only on their technical specifications and overall quality, but also on how well they perform over a demanding, multi-day course that involves long distances and varied terrain.
These duocolor jerseys, the very first customized jerseys we made with our ultralight merino, ended up accompanying Pechtregon all the way to the podium, as he took second overall with his lightweight randonneur bike. And, while we can claim no part in Matthieu's success and fine craftmanship, there's no denying that lightweight handmade rando bikes and lightweight handmade merino jerseys are a marriage made in heaven.
