• Thanks for this profile. I’ve been a happy customer of VO for a couple years because they make stuff I find both useful and beautiful. The only frustration has been products that are temporarily unavailable because they’re a small operation and need to wait for production runs. I hope their continued growth means that they’ll have more of their fine products available all the time.

    I also appreciate that Chris doesn’t pull punches about the skills required to use some of their products. I installed a set of original randonneur racks, and I was grateful for the tips about taking time to carefully measure and to get a new carbide-tipped drill bit to drill holes in the tang.

    And Russ and Laura: If you find yourselves in western Massachusetts (Hadley, between Amherst and Northampton) between now and late May 2011, let me know; our guest room may be available.

  • Awesome backstage tour and history of Velo-Orange! I really enjoyed this post. 🙂 Fantastic portraits Russ. Its wonderful to see the world of vehicular-cycling shrink a bit by meeting these folks through the eyes of you and Laura.

  • I’ve ordered several items from Velo Orange over the past year or two and have never been disappointed with the service. Hoping to replace my aluminum and carbon day-tourer with their beautiful Rando frame soon. I like that they offer frames in a build kit, something other bike companies should consider.

    Thanks for the peek inside this unique company,
