Bicycle frame materials and design have come a long way since the late 80's and early 90's. The weight race created a shift in materials and we went from high end butted steel to aluminium. Vitus was a french manufacturer that rose to fame during the material transition in the early 90's. This particular model is a 992 Ovoid, with aluminium tubes and lugs that were glued and pinned together (which is why the seam between them is visible). Today, Vitus frames are very sought out for their vintage yet elegant look. We wanted this build to make the frame stand out, especially because silver is a rare model. It was built with a Sensah 2x8 groupset in order to lower the price of the build since this bike is meant to be simple, fun and beautiful rather than performant.
