featured bike #4 – Bertin C 34 – Matthias M.

overview-

This bike feature is long overdue. In June, I was corresponding with Matthias M. from Luxembourg. The bike he had acquired was in a wonderful state of period correct preservation and I offered to do a feature on it. He was kind enough to agree and send me the photographs you will see below. His bike is a Bertin C 34bis with the clincher tire option. It is original in almost every respect even down to the Milremo decals on some of the components. Matthias’ bicycle truly is a classically French  Bertin right down to the Durifort tubing and all French component gruppo. My apologies for the long delay in sharing this, Matthias.
