2020 Vitus Sommet CR
27.5 wheels size Medium
*Make me an offer* !
4 months old, owned from new
Straight out of the box, I upgraded the crap Sram gears and fitted brand new Shimano SLX 11spd cassette, chain, rear mech and an XT shifter..
Along brand new Stans Flow S1 Wheels and Michelin Wild enduro tyres (both AWESOME) £400 plus with tyres
Apart from that it’s std spec; see vitusbikes.com
Carbon frame 18”
Lyric forks with Charger damper 170mm
Fox DPX2 shock (this really does make the bike) 160mm rear travel
Brand x post (amazing bit of kit!)
Guide RE brakes (wasn’t to keen from new, but they are great)
It’s a medium, the dropper post (see pic) is slammed all the way down, the moulding in the frame prevents it going in any further. I’m 5’9 with a 32” inside leg, so you need a 31” minimum to be honest.
Genuine , honest reason for sale, I LOVE this bike, but I’ve just bought a Sommet 29r, mainly because I have a knackered wrist, and the bigger wheels should help take the edge off.
Otherwise this bike is an absolute blast ! Light, stiff, super responsive, super easy to throw about and the shock has three modes from fully locked out (pedals well enough uphill in full open) all help make it really versatile ..
It does have a few scrapes and marks, see pics, and one on the top off the linkage, which I’m touching up once I get more touch up paint from CRC (lost my original) it’s a Mountain bike these things happen unless your a garage queen) - this was done when a bungee rope slipped out of my hand in the van, very very annoying !
Never been raced or crashed, but used for whats it’s designed for, and fully cleaned and prepped after EVERY SINGLE day out, I’m a full time professional bike mechanic so it’s always always been 100%
The wheels were a £350 upgrade, the drivetrain was around £130..
Based in Newbury so can arrange a halfway meet, I could post but as I’m mega mega mega busy with work, it might not happen overnight!
NO, repeat NO buyers without proper pinkbike accounts (sorry, just had bad experience in the past and simply don’t have time to bugger about)
Turds asking dumb questions without a proper account will be ignored
NO TRADES (please, not the stupid pit bike question!!)
