Can't decide between these two.

Postby hexbugspider » Sat Jul 27, 2019 07:02 am

So, I was thinking of getting the Vitus nucleus vr but I realised that as soon as I get it would add upgrades which would make it more expensive than the following options which have higher specs.

First option is the Vitus nucleus 275 VRX

Next is the Vitus sentier baseline version.

Which would be better value since the sentier is £150 more.

There is really no competition here the Sentier, you're getting a much more capable bike.

Yes but I was wondering is it worth the extra £150 in comparison to the VRX considering they both have air forks and a 1x drivetrain.

I have two legs the same as Usain Bolt, but I can't run as fast as him. I can tell you that you are getting a much more capable bike.

Blinkin' 'eck! Not again. :roll:

C'mon, Nick. In the last 13 months you have asked this question about 6 times and each time end up stating which bike you are going to buy. So far it has been a Vitus, A Voodoo, a Carrera, a B'Twin and a Calibre. Now we are back to Vitus.
You have come full circle.

Buy the bloody Vitus and get out riding. :)
If you can afford it get the Sentier. Boost forks and drop out and very good tyres easily make up for the increased cost.
