The humble beginnings of Granville are situated in 1928 when Frans Huygens started building bicycle frames. From 1952, the year in which the one-man business was transformed into a limited company, he built complete bicycles and called them “Ludo”, after the name of his only son, who developed the regional wholesale business into a national top seller.
Under the influence of grandson Johan, the entire bicycle line, including the brand name, was completely renewed in the year 2000. An initiative that was as daring as it was successful because in a very short time Granville became a great commercial success.
After 90 years we still build our bikes with the same dedication and passion. Carried by a corporate culture that attaches great importance to creativity, innovation and perfection. Because we want to offer an exceptional product that fully meets all your expectations in terms of comfort, safety and riding pleasure. That’s why we pay maximum attention to the right frame geometry and suspension in combination with quality, maintenance-free, harmonized components.
The result is an authentic bike full of character with a beautiful line, a lot of allure and of an unprecedented class.
