is the red vitus bike the same frame as the peugeot branded frame ? I know the 1st gen vitus used the standard method of seat post clamping and the 2nd gen used a grub screw into the back of the post
Yes the red frame is the same as the Peugeot, it has the seat clamp not the grub screw.
what parts did the peugeot branded frame donate ? I know the 1st gen vitus used the standard method of seat post clamping and the 2nd gen used a grub screw into the back of the post , I happen to have a NOS all silver clamp on mavic front mech if you want to go that way
The Peugeot donated all but the head set, I would have used the HS but the threads were different from one frame to the other. Shame as the Bador HS is a nicer thing, I have the correct 52 Mavic ring coming from a Retro biker. I also have a KMC chain on as the old chains?? well what can I say, I don't know how anyone can use one these days.
The wheels are the most in balance wheels I have, so smooth, and the spin up effort is so low, will be great climber next year out in the Peak District. L'Erioca???
Took her out 1st run on Sunday in the autumn wet and leaves, loved it, came back proper crapped up. Loved it.
8kg some carbon moderns weigh more than that ! i like the way you have such a variety of brand's on the build
there must of been a great deal of pondering , or fishing. love that crank set. bet she fly's.
8KG it is the second lightest bike I have, folks can't believe it when they pick it up and its a 60cm frame 61.5cm C-T. Great. The lightest I have is the all carbon £2000++ machine.
