    Peugeot: Back in the saddle for 2010

    A brief timeline:

    1992-5: Peugeot sells licensing rights to BH cycles, BH, Gitane and Peugeot form Cycleurope in 1995. North American licensing sold to ProCycle in Canada

    2002: Licensing deals expire with the exception of low end bikes in Germany and Sweden through 2005.

    2002-2009: The original Peugeot company produces bicycles.

    2010: New licesing deal signed with Cycleurope. Cycleurope introduces 4 'legends' models. Full lineup of bikes to be produced for 2011.

    The legend 'Race' model. Of note is the white paint with checkerboard decals:

    I like the second one more. Still not gonna buy it. I note the blurb is from the UK, I wonder about US distribution.

    It's nice to see them back in production, though it won't send me running from my classics.

    Too cool. In 25 years, when it's appropriate to this forum, I'm going to post this bike as my holy grail!

    Looks like you can carry Grandma on the front rack to town on that one...... all it needs now is a rear rack for the goat and the pig to come along to market!
    Dang, I was expecting to see my first view of a thouroughly new monocoque CF framed with all the brifter ergobar doodads back sloping top tube, seat mast and deep dish wheels Peugeot. to help finally wean me into possibly buying a new bike, and then I see this pic that reminds me what French bikes are sometimes about!

    Well at least Peugeot was making real bikes back in the day. Most of the modern companies making retro styled bikes didnt exist during the period their bikes are suppused to emmulate. Imagine a Trek or Cannondale retro bike, they'd probably have Miami Vice color schemes.

    Uhmmm saw the market/townie bike pic before this one downloaded on my computer.
    Interesting bike, all modern but with a traditional leather saddle!
    Anything on that bike still made in France, other than maybe the saddle. IIRC, Mavic rims are now made in China(?), Michelin tires in Thailand(?), the compnenet group most likely, Shimano, made in the Far East too, the frame will most likely be subcontracted to a factory in China.......Not as Frech as their old bikes,most likely, but at least some of the formerly traditional French eccentricity must have been mostly excorcised out of it.

    The frame and fork is made in France and the bike is made in France of both foreign and domestic parts. Peugeot has had non-stop French production since 1882.

    That race looks like a pretty nice bike...aluminum w/carbon fork at 20 lbs ain't bad. I'm sure it could be trimmed down to 17 or so pretty easily. I'm curious about the price and of course, availability.

    I was thinking more in terms of the Raleigh Clubman, and other modern takes on well-established C&V names.

    Ohhh,...looks like these guys have been watching Honda's concept bike presentations, more specifically their V4 concept from a little over a year ago:
    http://www.gizmag.com/bizarre-honda-...r-heads/10156/
    .......with wild dreams about spokeless wheels (Luigi Colani had been dreaming about getting spokeless wheel technology for motorcycles and cars since the early 90's) and monocoque structure, which I guess isn't a big deal anymore with bicycles. Who knows, maybe Peugeot will pull off a TT bike that might looks close to this concept study, but Honda sure wasn't so successful with carrying over the V4 concept model into their new VFR.

    It willbe nice to see the "Made in France" decal again on a bike frame, maybe coming soon to dealers in the US??!...but I guess I could forget about the resurrection of French components Unless Mavic gets the "itch"to do it again.

    the logos on the rims are screaming at me. not a good kind of screaming.

    it also needs a less chunky crank. that thing looks horrid on there.

    the rest... i enjoy.

    That would be nice. How about Mavic components that are compatiable with Campy and can break down and rebuild with hand tools. Yeah, too early to dream.

    Thanks Jim for the info. Any info if Peugeot bike will come back to the North America market?
