Vitus Bikes Mach 3 City Bike 2013

Bought Sands a new bike recently, a Vitus Bikes Mach 3 City Bike 2013 from, you guessed, www.chainreactioncycles.com

So far so good. She is getting used to the thinner tyres, lower weight, better gears, smaller saddle, and is doing well. She is finding it tough on her wrists at the moment but they will strengthen up as she uses the bike more, and of course she has all the right gear!

I have had a little go on the bike and am impressed.

Specifications:

Vitus Bikes Mach 3 City Bike

The Vitus Mach 3 combines the performance advantages of a traditional racing bike with the comfort and handling of a city commuter.

For riders who prefer the comfort, control and upright position of a flat-barred bike we’ve created the Mach 3.

Ideally suited as a fast city commuter or a fitness and training bike, the Mach 3 will also turn its hand to day touring and distance riding, with the emphasis on mile-munching pace in complete comfort.

Mach 3. Get the speed, keep the comfort.

Triple-Butted 6061 Aluminium Frame & Full UD Carbon Fork
The Mach 3 shares the same triple butted 6061 aluminium frame as it’s road racing siblings in the Zenium range with a full carbon fork to reduce road buzz; the Vitus Mach 3 combines all day comfort with impeccable handling.

Shimano Sora & FSA Groupset
Shimano Sora trigger shifters and Sora derailleurs provide smooth and precise gear selections throughout the range. The FSA Omega 50/34 compact chainset and Shimano Tiagra 12/25t cassette offers a gear ratio that will get you through weekend group rides and over any hill on your daily commute to the office.

Finishing Kit
FSA finishing kit provides a comfortable base for longer days in the saddle with reliable, robust aluminium components. Shimano WH-R501 wheels are stable performers whilst the Schwalbe Lugano tyres offer low rolling resistance and surefooted grip even in the wet increasing confidence and enhancing your riding experience.
