I have started negotiations to buy a Vitamin T2 and was suddenly aware that I know almost nothing about them!

I know that they are made of 'good' titanium and that the T2 has a wishbone seat stay.
I also know that they are geometrically pretty much as a P7 of the same year.
I also learned recently about the 1" head tubes and the smattering of 1 1/8" head tubes on T1's.


I don't know:

Who built them, where they were built, what years they started and stopped and other bits of info like that.

If anyone can help fill in the gaps it would be appreciated.

Thanks

T1 was 93/4 only from memory, T2 after that until late 90’s. Not sure it the T2 got revised over the years?

My old 93 Vitamin T had normal sear stays and a 1 1/8th head tube. I was told at the time that it might have been pre or early production as it should have had 1”. Can’t remember who made them but from memory it wasn’t one of the big hitters. Lovely bike, lovely ride and my biggest sale regret.
