Vitus ZX1



Did I just say something about geared retro road bikes being the next thing? Post-fixie Hipster road cycling, anyone?

If you're feeling me on this issue, here's something you just need to check out: a rare 1994 Vitus ZX1 Aero Carbon road bike on Ebay. All Campagnolo'd out and with double 'spoks. Hot 'ish. Even if I start sounding bit too much like AlanWMD, I'm like, whoah, my head is exploding, dude!

You can go bidding crazy HERE.

Thanks for hyping up my "Hipster Road Biking" idea, Jussi. I'm gonna be HUGE in Finland.
Also, if any of you guys want, I live in Colorado (a US "state" bordering the state of Nebraska (where this bike is)), so I can go pick it up for you, ride it a little while, then ship it to you REAL CHEAP.
SUCKERS!

Oh, by the way, I have written things since "Hipster Road Biking," if anyone's interested.

David, no, thank you! I'm secretly your #1 fan. ;)

Also, I'd seriously consider your kind offer unless I already had spent all my spare money on building that DA equipped road bike, following your instructions...

I bought this bike ;~). It's AWESOME. Quite a bit stiffer thand conventional aluminum Vitus road frame but gives a nice ride. I think it was actually first produced in the late 1980's. Will retorfit it with appropriate components - when I get a chance. It's been sitting in my garage for 6 months now . . . .
