I've been hugely impressed with the bike knowledge out there (and very envious of some of the bikes you own) so I wonder if you can help. Many years ago (about 15) my pride and joy was a Vitus Duralinox road bike with shimano ultegra kit. It was a thing of great beauty and a dream ride.
The other day when I was out running I bumped into the triathlete I sold it to all that time ago.
Amazingly he's still got the bike (hasn't been used for years) and he's willing to sell it back to me.
My heart says I should but my head says technology has moved on and the Vitus 979 frame is no longer the hi-tech thing it once was.
Does the Vitus compare favourably with modern frames and should I buy iy and upgrade all the kit on it?
Some may recall a previous bike thread from me and yes, this is the bike I once had hanging on my bedroom wall because it was so beautiful.
Sorry for such a long posting. Thanks in advance for any help forthcoming.
