My name is Alain Levesque, and I am the brains and hands behind Velos Levesque.
I’ve been building custom steel bicycles here in Toronto since 2011. To date I've built road and gravel bikes, and have begun messing around with mountain bikes as well. I've built with scary-light/thin and more rugged tubeset options from columbus, deda and true temper, often a combination of two or more. I also fabricate custom rack and stem upgrades for existing bikes, which are each built to suit.
My bikes run the gamut from basic/practical/utilitarian to fancy vanity-pieces. I build both lugged and fillet-brazed steel frames, with modern or classic lines - often a combination of both. No two are the same, and I like it that way.
I work with each customer to build a bike that is purpose-built and built to fit.
Building frames has been a life-long dream of mine. A big thank you goes out to everyone who has helped me out along the way.
