Wow I emailed the guy with all the Vitus frames right away when I saw his ads, asking him if he had more Vitus stuff because none of the frames were my size. He told me he didn't have anything else. If he had an MTB Vitus frame to go with the fork I would be on it in a heartbeat! But apparently he only had the fork, I'm just happy it went to someone who can really appreciate it for what it is.
The Fongers frame is a nice find if you're into that kind of thing, I'm still on the lookout for a Cupini frame but they're so hard to find I think I'll have to settle with a Duell or Herman Braun.
The carbon Vitus and the Zap system are a match made in heaven, this is a project i"m interested to see how it turns out! What wheels do you have in mind?
He was aware he had a 992 fork, because it written on it. He had no idea the CL1 forks was a CL1 fork. If I hadn't grabbed it, he would probably have trown it away or it would be sitting there for gues. Yes, good I came along. Here a pic of my CL1 with Switchblades fitted --->
The Fongers frame is sure nice. It is actually a Batavus Professional. Fongers was owned by Batavus back in the day. My Fongers was a teambike and supplied by Batavus' race department.
There is a Cupini on the large classified site right now. Giovanni, Cornello, Cupini - all Dutch brands, sometimes even build in Holland, but with Italian sounding names. It won't help my appreciation for them.
The wheels for my Vitus FCK9: The Zap groupset includes hubs. Really nice ones btw. Who will supply the rims? Indeed, Mavic too
