On the road again - The Vitus 979

Here's my project of the last couple months - a Vitus 979 road bike.

The drivetrain is Campagnolo Triomphe, with Shimano Exage brakes. It's got Tubular tires on Araya 'Red' rims, and Wellgo pedals. The handlebars are Cinelli.

This is a very light bike, Vitus are a French bicycle tubing company, and this one is unique in that the tubes are glued together rather than welded, as it usually the case. Here's more info on this bike. The 979 was made famous by Irish Cyclist Sean Kelly - here he is in the San Remo - Milan race.
