Visit to Cycles d’Autremont

cycles dautremont vermont-41

I love hanging out at Hubert’s spot. If you couldn’t tell from previous Cycles d’Autremont posts, I really admire his work and have quite an affinity for his shop.

Hunt and I swung by last Sunday to kick it and drink a couple beers with our old buddy Hubert. As you can see from these photos, he’s been very busy. Needless to say, the surprise beers were warmly welcomed (but served cold, of course).

As Burlington’s predominant frame builder, he sure knows how to build a bicycle tailored for Vermont’s vast variety of riding and terrain. His skills are just as diverse as his taste in bicycles, too. Everything from a custom-lugged randonneur to a race-weight steel road bike are all within his realm.

While we were there he was doing a rebuild on a friends Andy Gilmour road bike. With his queue currently running into the spring, I’m sure playing with some old Campy bits for the afternoon was a nice change of pace.

As we all chatted and caught up, I poked around and shot a few photos that you can view in the slideshow below. Stay tuned for more from Hubert and Cycles d’Autremont in the near future.
