VO Campeur got a great review in the July issue of Adventure Cyclist. It was written by Charles Pelkey, a very experienced touring cyclist and former senior editor at VeloNews. Unfortunately there isn't an on-line version of the article yet, so I'll type out a few short quotes below.
"...It's a bike that reflects a thoughtful, even joyful approach to design."
" Fully loaded, the bike tracks beautifully."
"...I hit a downhill stretch where, when I last rode it fully loaded, the bike I was on shimmied unmercifully. No such problem with the Campeur."
"...It's simply fun to ride. Unloaded the Campeur is is a perfectly delightful commuter or something one might use for a nice day ride."
"...the bike was clearly created by people who ride and, above all, respect the integration of form and function."
"The Velo Orange racks are exquisite and perfectly matched to the bike itself."
"...were I forced to limit myself to a single bike, this may well be the leading candidate."
It's one thing to read a positive review, but how much did the writer really like our bike? In this case a lot. After testing it Charles bought a VO Campeur for himself.
By the way, Adventure Cyclist is a great magazine that's actually devoted to offering information related to cycle touring. It's a refreshing contrast to publications that are mostly devoted to selling as much of their advertiser's stuff as possible while providing little useful information. You'll need to join the Adventure Cycling Association to get the magazine, not a bad deal.
UPDATE: The Adventure Cycling review of the Campeur is now on line.
