My Vitus is a compulsory single speed unfortunately due to a stripped rear hanger.

Still a fantastic ride no matter how many gears. :)

Some great lookin' bikes. Had an early 90s bonded allez bitd, sadly no pics.

Always a bit wary about bonded frames, rightly or wrongly. Anyone ever actually had one failed?

I wonder if it's one of those things that everyone says happens all the time because it's common knowledge, but it's common knowledge because everyone says it?

I'm not sure that made sense! :?

Technically my Dyna Tech Ti failed, one of the shifter bosses fell off the down tube. It was a long ride home in 39-12 or 53-12! :lol:

Argos removed the other and fitted Cannondale style screw through the frame bosses for me. One day I am sure it wil whip one way and not come back, then it goes on a wall! :wink:

Surely there are a few more bonded bikes in the ownership of this fair sites membership?
