Vitus Dural 979 52cm Aluminium Road Bike

Vitus Dural 979 52cm Aluminium Road Bike

Regular price £795.00 Sale

By the early 1990s the Vitus 979 frame was a very well used and well loved alternative to the many steel bike frames on offer to road cyclist. 10 years earlier, the idea of a usable aluminium road bike frame was for many riders a non starter, but with improvements in construction methods and processes, aluminium frames proved the ultimate successor to steel for most cyclist. This example is in fine original condition with some lovely original Campagnolo parts. The frame is in near spotless condition and the finishing kit is all neat and tidy. The Campagnolo Avanti groupset was never a top of line set up, but it is extremely functional and good looking, set off against the deep blue paintwork of this frame. The bike offers a trademark Vitus ride with quick changes of direction with a nice blend of stiffness and comfort. In the long term the tires could do with replacing if you are planning to ride serious distances, but overall this is just one stunning Vitus 979
