OUR STORY

Down-tube shifters, toe straps, steel frames & 10-speed gears. Riding a classic road bike is a thrill like no other.

We have a passion for the glory days of cycling, when the likes of Eddie Merckx & Raymond Poulidor battled for the Tour de France title in the early 1970's, on similar bikes that Vélobo sells today. Riding one of these old machines gives you a deep appreciation for what these legendary riders went through. It let's us travel back in time to experience the thrill of the ride and the romance of cycling in it's golden age.

 

Benoit Porlier is the founder of Vélobo. He dedicates his time to sourcing, repairing and importing only the best quality vintage road bikes from all over the South and East of France. He personally collects and inspects every bike, discovering their histories and stories through the people that owned them. 

 

At Vélobo we believe that these bikes are built to be ridden – not sat in a dusty collectors shop with an expensive price tag. Thats why we try our hardest to get our bikes to our customers as cost-efficiently as possible so that we can pass on our savings. This is why we sell our bikes via eBay, as it is the most cost and time efficient way of running our business.

 

We enjoy human connections, and sharing the great experience of cycling. This is why we like to meet our clients in person, fit you on the bike, tell you its story, and give you the chance to try it out. We deliver to Denmark, Germany and Netherlands. Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Berlin and Hamburg are our favorite delivery points! :) In case of any question for another country / city, please contact us.
