  • Description:

    Here we present the first aluminium racing bicycle released by Vitus, one of the pioneers of professional level aluminium frame sets.

    Vitus was France's leading manufacturer of high-quality frame tubing. Their products were on a par with Reynolds and Columbus. And they were right at the forefront of the introduction of new materials on which they collaborated with TVT, an aerospace company. Their aluminium and carbon fiber frames were ridden by Sean Kelly, Greg LeMond and Miguel Indurain.

    The Vitus 797 classic aluminium road bike was the modernised version of their all-time classic, the 979. Just like its predecessor - which was a collaboration with TVT, Ateliers de la Rive and Angenieux-CLB - it is made of Duralinox 5083 aluminum-magnesium alloy tubes which are glued to lugs. The geometry of this frame set is steeper than many frames of its time, though the construction is not as stiff. It is not the best frame for sprinting but extremely comfortable and forgiving.
    Major improvements concerning the 797 frame are the prolongued head lug and the straight aluminium fork. .

    Our exemplar has a shining blue anodised frame and is equipped with reliable Shimano 105 parts throughout/p> A bike for excellent everyday rides. »See Details

  • Condition: Used. The bike is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Anodising and decals are original. All parts have been thoroughly checked, replaced where necessary and are working fine.
