    NeXXus had the same bike but all sorts of problems with it :( just unlucky as I know a few people who have the same bike. Yours really looks the part, great condition.
    After a long wait ended up with this http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/vitu ... prod107034 which I really enjoyed (haven't been out on it for 4 months and could be a long while yet). Great deals in the current sale.

    I had a 2013 Zenium VRS :) Raced on it, used it as a winter bike then sold it on along with another Vitus MTB :twisted:

    You've seen these pics before haven't you Carl :P

    I think so on Facebook BikeFixBelfast was raving about how good a condition it was in. Really looks the part. :D
    Surprised more people around Norn Ireland don't have Vitus Bikes.(mine was the cheap version :oops: )

    Nice bike, but you should be clamping that by the seatpost! Those Goodridge sleeves are quite shouty aren't they...

    Why would I clamp it by the seatpost? I don't like the sleeves,they're coming off :)

    Carbon frame tubes are not designed to be clamped so you could in theory crush the tube. I don't know anyone that's done it but that's industry recommendation. Seatpost is designed to be clamped so safe to do so and that's what you're recommended to do.

    Stupidly low clamp force, not going to panic :wink:
