I recently were after information on my Vitus CL1 and someone told me there should be connection between Vitus and SR (Sakae) because they look so similar. Actually I doubt. Differences are obvious by taking a closer look...

Do not know whether they are good, but one can have something really special.

Yes, from a distance one could also say there are some similarities with the Miyata, but if those glued/bolted lugged frames were the standard people would probably say that every Tig welded bike is alike....

It is like all Chinese are alike ...., but at the same time they say it of us :lol:

This one !

Very nice, but it doesn't look like it is the same A1 condition as the black I posted earlier. The black shows minimal wear on rims, has a kickstand :roll: and the seller is obviously not able to spell the word 'mountainbike'. Chance is pretty large he isn't aware what he is selling.

Weird thing is that when looking attentively it looks like I see welds...
