Good read and perfect timing. I am sorting out a Victory groupset on my Colnago Super so nice to see this write up on it.

Library.
Yes, I like that word.
It has a nice 58T ring to it.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing it. I'm currently assembling a Victory group (mostly), bit by bit. I ended up finding a Croce d'Aune crank to get the 175 length. Good stuff!

The only criticism I have of Victory/ Triomphe is no 172.5 crank. I have been alternating rides between Victory and 6400 on two different bikes.
Both have a different one being indexed and the other friction.
I like them equally.

My Chorus pedals are far more comfortable with the old school japanese running shoes I wear. Victory are very similar, but lack a piece of the cage that wraps around, supporting the shoe's sole. So I recently scrapped my Victory set. They worked all right for under 30 mile rides, I guess. I didn't have much more of a problem clipping in than normal.

Victory trumps Triomphe most with the rear mech. It's way more posh. And very lightweight. Other than that, the two groups are very similar, with primarily styling touches to differentiate the two (conical caliper locknuts, drilled levers, skewer nuts, etc.).

I'm using the original brake pads from my Triomphe brakeset, and they're still performing really well. Out of the blue, the front was squeaking, forcing me to feather my stops more. I removed and cleaned all four pads, switched a couple between front and rear, and the bike is stopping better than it ever has.

Good read, reminding me about the Leisure version.

And as an added highlight, Colorado Cyclist referring to Wolber as Wobler throughout their ad
