Translation: I have both front and rear wheels with Victoire HFT hubs. When I torque the nuts, the hubs become difficult to spin. Is that normal?

Not a wheel expert by any means, sounds like something is binding in the hub to prevent it from spinning freely when you apply pressure onto them (installing them on a fork)

Sounds like your cones need adjusting. Not sure how it'd be done on those hubs

Those hubs are self-adjusting - the bearings are pre-loaded when you tighten the axle bolts.

You're probably just over-torquing the bolts (as most people do) and damaged the bearings in the process. Ease up on them bolts, Hercules.
