Hi all,

got a Vitus 992 frame I've had laying around (trying to fund a new bike) so this is next on the list to go.

Great condition, but has a few scrapes and scratches from use. 54cm from centre BB to top.
Frame + parts need a very, very good clean! They are all mechanically perfect.

Comes with:

.Vitus 979 frame + forks
.Vitus pantographed headset
.Vitus pantographed seat-post
.Cinelli giro bar + cinelli stem
.Unbranded index shifters
.Charge spoon saddle (£20 extra, it's brand-new)
.Shimano Ultegra crank
.Shimano Tiagra brakes (needs new cable and rear brake needs pads

No cracks/bends/dents to the frame at all. Screw-on dropout has the bottom broken off, no damage to the frame at all, just needs a new one.

£250, open to offers.

I also have parts to almost complete this bike (wheels, dura-ace pedals, chain) so please contact me!

It's also on ebay, looking likely from someone who's a dealer? :roll:

Is that definitely a screw on drop out. I thought all Vitus drop outs were bonded and an integral part of the frame?

Many people on here advertise on several different sites, can't see the problem in that. Always makes me wonder though why a person wouldn't give their frame / bike a clean before trying to sell it. Would take about half an hour, look about 10x better and would sell easier than something that looks fit to be binned.

The later 992s like this one had replaceable screw-in drop outs.
