Velo Orange Porteur Front Rack
$235.00
VO Porteur Rack The VO Porteur Rack is a traditional-style rack as used on the famed Parisian newspaper delivery bikes. Those Parisian delivery bikes were reputed to carry as much as 110lbs. of newspapers on similar racks (of course, the bikes had strengthened frames and forks, not just racks). Our Porteur Rack is made from strong stainless steel tubing and polished to a lovely shine. It won't rust like painted steel racks or fatigue and crack like aluminum racks. The quality is actually superior to that of many custom racks. In short, this is a real load-carrying rack, not an aluminum "style-rack". Yet total weight with rail, nuts, bolts, etc. is only 1.079kg. The platform is about 36cm x 29cm. A removable rail attachment is included and very handy for smaller packages. The tangs are pre-drilled to fit 700c, 27", 26", and 650b bikes. There are four bosses for a light attachment. There is a boss for securing your fender to the rack -- no rattling! Please also note the elegant pannier/tie-down loops above the mounting tangs. Mounting hardware is included. The Porteur Rack mounts to the dropout eyelet and the brake bolt (or fork crown hole). You can use the Surly rack mounts if you are running super heavy loads and want more stability. You can attach them using P-clamps to the top of your fork.
Velo Orange Grand Cru Sabot Pedal
$135.00
This style of pedal is great for urban riding. But we see other uses, too. More and more bike packers, long distance tourists, and adventure cyclists are riding with big BMX style pedals, and these make a more refined alternative. The two-sided platform is a CNC-cut aluminum extrusion. It's big, approximately 100mm wide and 100mm long. There are 12 replaceable traction pins on each side of the pedal to offer great grip even when wet. We include rounded pins with the pedals so as not to damage street shoes, but they are easily replaced with more aggressive sharp pins. Extra pins and wrench are included.
Velo Orange Thumb Shifter Mounts
$105.00
Thumb shifter mounts allow you to mount Shimano, Dia Compe, Silver, and many other shifters. This is an ideal setup for city bikes, porteurs, or even drop bars. They put shifter is within easy reach and avoid the complexity of brifters. These feature a hinged mount so you do not need to remove your bar tape or grips or brake levers to install them. They fit standard road, MTB, and city handlebars (22.2mm and 23.8mm grip area) . Sold as a pair. Shifters not included.

Velo Orange Smooth 37mm Fenders 700c
$100.00
VO 700c 37mm fenders have a beautiful polished finish. Like our other fenders they are extra-long to keep spray off. The hardware includes 5mm polished aluminum stays, R-clips and screws, stay-to-fender closed eyelet bolts, fork crown daruma, sliding bracket, and leather washers. The front fenders are 80cm long and the rear are 110cm. They are pre-drilled. For tires up to 27mm wide on 700c or 27" wheels.

The hardware includes: 5mm polished aluminum stays, R-clips and screws, stay-to-fender closed eyelet bolts, fork crown daruma, sliding bracket, and leather washers.

For tires up to 35mm wide. Sold as pairs only and with hardware.
Velo Orange Grand Cru Threadless Bottom Bracket
$95.00
Grand Cru threadless bottom brackets fit most frames, even those with Swiss threading. And they work on frames with damaged BB shells, even if the existing threading is totally stripped. Unlike previous attempts at threadless BBs, this new design is "internally expanding". As the adjustable cup is tightened, the silver sleeve (see photo) is pushed up the tapered alloy cups, expanding and locking in the BB. This differs from older designs, like the Mavic, that pressed in from the outside and would sometimes slip. Installation requires only a traditional-style BB spanner or a pin wrench. The BB shell does not require chamfering or facing; simply slip the BB into the shell and tighten. It is easily removed and existing threads may be reused. Like the other Grand Cru BBs, these have sealed cartridge bearings, so they require no servicing and should have a very long life. Taper is JIS. So far, we have tried these on British, French, and Swiss BB shells and they work perfectly. Customers report that they also work in Raleigh frames with a 71mm wide BB shell. These BB's won't work on mountain bikes, as their standard width (73mm) is too wide for the shell to expand. They do not work on Italian threaded BB shells because those have a wider ID.
Velo Orange Grand Cru Chris's Rando Handlebar
$90.00
This is the bar that Chris always wanted. After riding with several different French, American, and Japanese rando bars, he designed this bar to his ideal. It has substantial flare for a wide stance in the drops. The bend is round and open, as on our course bar. The area behind the hoods is long and flat for extra comfort. The drops are long so you can slide you hands well back. The Grand Cru crest appears on each side of the clamp area. The center section is highly polished. The area under the bar tape has a "bead blasted" finish. This is a great bar for touring, riding off-pavement, and tandems. The Rando bar has a medium drop, 130mm. The reach (measured from the stem clamp forward) is about 120mm. Available in 42, 44, 46, and 48cm center-to-center at the ends; there 60mm of flare.
Velo Orange Grand Cru Seat Post, Long Setback 27.2
$90.00
These silver two bolt seat posts have a generous 30.2mm of setback, among the longest ever. This is very important for those who ride Brooks saddles which have very little fore-and-aft adjustment due to the short rails. The VO posts are internally ovalized to reduce weight to 254gms. The adjustment is from the bottom and the two bolt design makes it easy to precisely adjust the seat angle. Also note that the head is integral with the post, not pressed on as on many modern posts. This makes them stronger and lighter. 27.2mm only x 300mm. Maximum height (above the min. insert line) is about 23cm.
Velo Orange Grand Cru Seatpost
$90.00
The Velo Orange Grand Cru seatpost is made from one piece of aluminum, internally ovalized to trim weight. The Grand Cru seatpost’s head is integral with the post – not pressed on – for great strength and weight savings. 0mm Setback: Zero-setback/offset posts are commonly used on mountain bikes and by some bikepackers. The Grand Cru zero setback post uses a one-bolt, ergonomic side-adjustment mechanism for both saddle rail clamping and fore-aft adjustment. 30.2mm Setback: For riders who prefer the comfort of leather saddles but have found proper saddle placement difficult due the short rails on leather saddles Velo Orange offers the Grand Cru Long Setback with an ample 30.2mm of setback. This model uses a two-bolt design.
Velo Orange Rando Handlebar
$90.00
After riding with several different French, American, and Japanese rando bars, Velo Orange designed their Rando bar to combine the best elements of bars from three continents. It has substantial flare for a wide stance in the drops. The bend is round and open, as on Velo Orange's Course bar. The area behind the hoods is long and flat for extra comfort. The drops are long so you can slide you hands well back. The Grand Cru crest appears on each side of the clamp area. The center section is highly polished. The area under the bar tape has a "bead blasted" finish. This is a great bar for touring, riding off-pavement, and tandems. - Drop: 130mm - Drop Bend Style: Traditional - Reach: 120mm - Bar Top Style: Round
Velo Orange Grand Cru French Threaded Bottom Bracket
$60.00 - $80.00
The French thread Grand Cru bottom brackets have oversize sealed bearings. The axles are hollow and made from boron steel. Both cups are aluminum alloy. The bearing are well sealed against dust, mud, and moisture, with four wiper seals at the bearings and two full contact grit shields at the cups. About 258gm in 110mm. JIS taper. Includes axle bolts. Grand Cru BB are available in spindle lengths to fit most cranks. Generally, it is the crank model, not the frame, that determines spindle length; so, check what spindle length the crank manufacturer recommends or measure your old BB. If between sizes, it's usually wise to choose the longer.
Velo Orange JA Stein Crank Puller Stronglight 23.35mm
$75.00
A hard-to-find crank puller for classic Stronglight or TA cranks. JA Stein pullers are offered in Stronglight size (23.35mm) and in TA Specialities size (23mm). JA Stein tools are hand-machined in a one-man shop and are of exceptional quality, suitable for bike shop or home use. Note that these do not fit standard 22mm Japanese or Italian cranks. Made in the U.S.
Velo Orange Threadless Stem
$44.00 - $60.00
A simple all-silver polished threadless stem, it's reversible, light, minimalist, has a lovely silver finish, and a four-bolt face plate. VO stems are light, 140gms for a 100mm stem, due to very high quality cold forged construction. Some carbon stems on the market weigh more than that!
Velo Orange Left Bank Handlebars
$56.00
We went a bit wild with the Left Bank handlebar's design. It is a full 49cm wide, 7cm wider than a traditional French bar, but still narrower that many British/American-style bars. The grips flare outward a bit to appeal to the less restrained cyclist. Given its radical nature it can only be named the Left Bank handlebar, after that section of Paris, the Latin Quarter on the left bank of the Seine, that was historically populated by students and leftist philosophers. The stem clamp diameter is 25.4mm and are bulged, rather than sleeved, so they will not squeak. Polished alloy. Reach is about 18cm. These bars are available in two tubing diameters, 23.8mm road sized and 22.2mm mountain-bike- sized (clamp area is 25.4mm on both): 22.2mm (MTB-size) bars accept MTB brake levers and clamp-on shifters. They do not work with bar-end shifters. The only inverse levers that work are Dia Compe levers in the 22.2mm size. 23.8mm (road-size) bars accept standard inverse brake levers, standard bar-end shifters, and 23.8mm city brake levers. In short, anything made for road bars fits. They do not accept MTB levers or shifters.
Velo Orange Montmartre Handlebar
$56.00
Montmartre is an area of Paris known for its cafes and artist's studios. The Montmartre bar is a very traditional French city bar. Like most traditional French bars, the Montmartre bar is narrow, 42cm center-to-center. The streets of Montmartre are also narrow and it wouldn't do to knock over a drink at a cafe table or snag a Citroen's rear view mirror; that could happen with the wide Harley-style bars so popular on this side of the Pond. Besides, a proper low trail city bike has geometry that allows it to hold a straight line with almost no input, yet turn with only the gentlest touch. We are piloting a fine bicycle, not a tractor! The rise on the Montmartre bar is about 6cm; reach is about 18cm. Grip area is around 12cm. The stem clamp diameter is 25.4mm and the bars are bulged, rather than sleeved, so they will not squeak. These bars are available in two tubing diameters, 23.8mm road sized and 22.2mm mountain-bike- sized (clamp area is 25.4mm on both): 22.2mm (MTB-size) bars accept MTB brake levers and clamp-on shifters. They do not work with bar-end shifters. The only inverse levers that work are Dia Compe levers in the 22.2mm size. 23.8mm (road-size) bars accept standard inverse brake levers, standard bar-end shifters, and 23.8mm city brake levers. In short, anything made for road bars fits. They do not accept MTB levers or shifters.
Velo Orange Belleville Handlebar
$54.00
The Belleville is Velo Orange's reproduction of what is probably the most popular style of French city and utility bike bar ever. Anyone who enjoys classic European films has seen bars like this dozens of times. The Belleville is 430mm wide (or 450mm outside-to outside) and has zero rise. That's fairly narrow for a city bar, which is an advantage in traffic. Reach is about 180mm; the straight grip section is a generous 150mm. It has a 25.4mm clamp area and is rendered in aluminum alloy. These bars are available in two tubing diameters, 23.8mm road-sized and 22.2mm mountain bike-sized (clamp area is 25.4mm on both): - 22.2mm diameter (MTB-size) bars accept MTB brake levers and clamp-on shifters. They do not work with bar-end shifters. The only inverse levers that work are Dia Compe levers in the 22.2mm size. - 23.8mm diameter (road-size) bars accept standard inverse brake levers, standard inverse shifters, and 23.8mm city brake levers. In short, anything made for road bars fits. They do not accept MTB levers or shifters.

Velo Orange Porteur Handlebar
$54.00
You may remember that we used to sell NOS Belleri Porteur bars from France. Of course Belleri is long out of business, but hardly a day goes by without someone asking if we had just one last pair. So we decided to make our own Porteur bars. They are 48cm wide; reach is 14cm; grip area is about 13cm. and they have about 15mm of rise or drop. The clamp area is 25.4mm. The quality and polishing are very nice. The transition from the grip to the curve on the originals was a little more abrupt. Our version has a gentler transition. The curves on both versions are fuller and, to my eye, prettier than the somewhat similar Champs Elysées bars used on the old Herse bikes. These bars are available in two tubing diameters, 23.8mm road sized and 22.2mm mountain-bike- sized (clamp area is 25.4mm on both): 22.2mm (MTB-size) bars accept MTB brake levers and clamp-on shifters. They do not work with bar-end shifters. The only inverse levers that work are Dia Compe levers in the 22.2mm size. 23.8mm (road-size) bars accept standard inverse brake levers, standard bar end shifters, and 23.8mm city brake levers. In short, anything made for road bars fits. They do not accept MTB levers or shifters.
Velo Orange Postino Handlebar
$54.00
Chris has owned a much-loved ancient Italian city bike handlebar for many years. It's a little like our Milan bar, but with zero rise. We've long wanted a similar bar, but with slightly longer grips. It's finally here and called the Postino bar after a wonderful Italian film. The Postino bar is ideal for those who like a slightly forward position and those who like to ride fast. Like the Milan bar it's ideal for converting old racing bikes for urban use. 22.2mm diameter accepts standard mountain bike and city bike controls. 57cm wide, zero rise. 25.4mm stem clamp area.
Velo Orange French Threaded 1
$49.00
Many many customers have asked us to make a French thread headset. Well, here they are; the first one was installed on my very own Motobecane. They are alloy ball bearing headsets finished in polished silver. The stack height is 41mm and weight is 113g. Crown race: 26.4.
Velo Orange Porteur Handlebar
$49.00
Remember those great Belleri Porteur bars from France? Of course Belleri is long out of business, but those handlebars are still sought-after. So, Velo-Orange decided to make their own Porteur bars. They are 480mm wide; reach is 140mm. The grip area is about 130mm, and they have about 15mm of rise or drop. The clamp area is 25.4mm. The quality and polishing are very nice. The transition from the grip to the curve on the originals was a bit abrupt; The Velo-Orange version has a gentler transition. The curves on both versions are fuller and, we think, prettier than the somewhat similar Champs Elysées bars used on the old Herse bikes. These bars are available in two tubing diameters, 23.8mm road-sized and 22.2mm mountain bike-sized (clamp area is 25.4mm on both): - 22.2mm diameter (MTB-size) bars accept MTB brake levers and clamp-on shifters. They do not work with bar-end shifters. The only inverse levers that work are Dia Compe levers in the 22.2mm size. - 23.8mm diameter (road-size) bars accept standard inverse brake levers, standard bar end shifters, and 23.8mm city brake levers. In short, anything made for road bars fits. They do not accept MTB levers or shifters.
Velo Orange Dajia Cycleworks Trekking Bars
$46.00
Trekking handlebars are very popular in Europe. In some areas of Northern Europe half the cyclists seem to use them! Their advantages include multiple hand positions that suit both road and off-road riding and a variety of possible brake lever and shifter positions. The wide side position is great for climbing and offers better control at slow speeds and over rough terrain, especially when heavily loaded.
Velo Orange Milan Handlebar
$46.00
Velo Orange's Milan bar is so named because it's a great bar for converting an old Italian racing frame with a short top tube. Actually, it's great for converting any frame with a short top tube into a city bike. Folks who like a more aggressive position on a city bike will like it, too. The width is about 570mm and reach is 110mm; there is around 25mm (approximately one inch) of rise. The grips sweep back about 35 degrees, and the grip area is about 170mm long. The clamp area is 25.4mm. The material is polished aluminum alloy. Milan bars work with regular MTB (22.2mm) grips, brakes, shifters, 22.2 inverse brake levers, etc., but not bar-ends.
Velo Orange Tourist Handlebar
$46.00
Velo Orange's Tourist bar is a "North Road" style bar rendered in polished aluminum alloy. It's similar to the bars used on many classic British roadsters. The clamp area is 25.4mm in diameter. The width is 570mm and the reach is 180mm; it has about 70mm of rise. They sweep back about 60-degrees, and the grip area is about 160mm long. The Tourist accepts regular MTB (22.2mm) grips, brakes, and shifters, but not inverse levers or bar-end shifters.
Velo Orange Alloy Chainguard
$40.00 - $44.00
The polished aluminum chainguard mounts to the bottom bracket and to either the seat stay or chain stay. The finish is polished non-anodized. Overall length is 40cm from center of BB to tip. It will not work with a front derailleur.
Velo Orange Moderniste MK2 Water Bottle Cage
$30.00
This is an elegant and slightly modern tubular stainless steel water bottle cage. The minimalist design looks just right on both retro and contemporary bikes. They work well and look nice with our stainless steel water bottles. Moderniste cages have a beautiful polished finish and weigh only 34g. This newer, stronger version cannot be used with bottle cage clamps. The new MK2 version is made from stronger tubing. The welds are also improved for better durability. But we've kept the same lovely shape.
Velo Orange Deep Half Toe Clips
$24.00
Half clips give you most of the advantages of a full toe clip, but without straps. They are fantastic for city bikes, kids' bikes, or any bike when you want the extra efficiency of toe clips without the bother of straps. Highly recommended. These are made of stainless steel and are extra deep to fit bulky street shoes and running shoes. Their length is about 70mm from the pedal.
Velo Orange City Bike Brake Levers
$22.00
Many people have asked us where they can get old fashioned city bike levers, the type that CLB, and Mafac, and a dozen other companies used to make. They particularly wanted them in a size that would fit bars made from road bar tubing, 23.8mm. Our super popular Montmarte, and Left Bank bars, for example, are made with 23.8mm tubing so they can fit bar end shifters. This type of lever is still made, but mostly in low-quality models for kids bikes and third-world markets. Most are heavy steel and have rust-prone zinc-plated mounting bands. Many are also too small for big western hands. We found what's probably the best model still made. They actually come from Taiwan, not China. They are all alloy with good quality castings with a nice shiny finish. The manufacturer made them for us with a stainless steel clamp, which we think is a big improvement. These levers work with caliper or cantilever brakes, but not V-brakes. But best of all they are available in both MTB (22.2mm) and road bar (23.8mm) sizes. So you won't have to scour E-bay or the back rooms of old bike shops looking for vintage levers. And these levers now include button type cable housing ends. Per pair.
