Here we present a stunning bicycle from the early 1990s. Vitus made themselves a name as France's leading manufacturers of high-quality frame tubing. Their products were on a par with Reynolds and Columbus. And when the new material came by, Vitus didn't remain behind. Carbon was already proven as a bicycle frame material, but it was still in form of tubes connected together by some additional elements. In the late 80s and early 90s many manufacturers experimented with more advanced solution - the carbon momocoque. From the beginning, it was difficult to produce the frames in high volumes, different sizes and the whole manufacturing process was very very expensive. It was a challange.
But it allowed for different shapes, characteristics and geometry alterations, as this Vitus ZX1 Early Carbon Monocoque Bike displays. The frame shape is stunning and the paintjob is equally bold, as it should be on a proper 90s racer. It is fitted with a beautiful Campagnolo Chorus 8-speed gropset with Record shifters integrated into the brake levers. Apart from the proprietary Mavic headset this fully Campagnolo equipped bike is completed with the shiny deep section Vento wheelset with flat spokes and classic 90s 3ttt cockpit.
The bike has been checked in our workshop and it is ready to go. Perfect choice for rides in the typical 90s style!
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in very good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original with some signs of usage like small scratches. Abrasion from the housing on the head tube. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! Parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in great riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
