Vitus Bikes Mach 3 City Bike

The Vitus Mach 3 combines the performance advantages of a traditional racing bike with the comfort and handling of a city commuter.

For riders who prefer the comfort, control and upright position of a flat-barred bike we’ve created the Mach 3.

Ideally suited as a fast city commuter or a fitness and training bike, the Mach 3 will also turn its hand to day touring and distance riding, with the emphasis on mile-munching pace in complete comfort.

Mach 3. Get the speed, keep the comfort.

Triple-Butted 6061 Aluminium Frame & Full UD Carbon Fork

The Mach 3 shares the same triple butted 6061 aluminium frame as it’s road racing siblings in the Zenium range with a full carbon fork to reduce road buzz; the Vitus Mach 3 combines all day comfort with impeccable handling.

Shimano Sora & FSA Groupset

Shimano Sora trigger shifters and Sora derailleurs provide smooth and precise gear selections throughout the range. The FSA Omega 50/34 compact chainset and Shimano Tiagra 12/25t cassette offers a gear ratio that will get you through weekend group rides and over any hill on your daily commute to the office.

Finishing Kit

FSA finishing kit provides a comfortable base for longer days in the saddle with reliable, robust aluminium components. Shimano WH-R501 wheels are stable performers whilst the Schwalbe Lugano tyres offer low rolling resistance and surefooted grip even in the wet increasing confidence and enhancing your riding experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value for money The bike's quality is good and CRC actually sent some free stuff with it, which was a nice surprise. I'm am happy of the product, although I can't compare it to anything as it's my first road bike 15 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice bike for a good price This is an hybrid bike more on the racing side. Overall quality is good and it is really nice. The only thing is after few km it started with a noise from the crankset...it might be the balls bearing or something a bit loose. I think I will be going to a mechanic to get it fixed. The shifters seem a bit cheap but they work well. 26 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Weighing under 10kg, an agile bike with quick acceleration but some gear rattle/rubbing. I sent the first bike back the day after it arrived as the chain rubbed the inside of the larger front cog when in gears 7-9 on the smaller front ring. Absolutely no quibble from Chain Reaction. Apart from that, at around the £500 mark, this 9.2kg bike rides remarkably well and would seem to be good value. The handling is crisp and rock solid (after only a couple of weeks, so far). This is the flat bar version of the Vitus road race machine and the handle bar is quite a bit lower than the saddle height (I am 6'1"). Takes some getting used to and a compromise for a city bike if you want the acceleration this bike delivers. 22 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic for the price Fell in love with the picture on the site, not really the ideal criteria for buying a bike but hey ho, I was looking for something to commute on as I have been using my Gary Fisher Hoo Koo e koo since starting a new job, lots of roadworks on my route... total road rebuild for a long stretch so MTB was ideal, just needed something faster( not really, WANTED) this has ticked all of my boxes, fast, light,shifts well, stops well, maneuverable and confidence inspiring and in the flesh looks great,I have shaved minutes of my time and just want to try harder, the easier it gets the harder I push, and at 51 this year I never thought I would get that ethos back. one thing I changed after the second ride was the stem, just flipped it over to raise the front a touch I don't want/need to do anything else yet!! However I do have one issue.... the rear tyre may have a fault, clearance at the rear between frame and tyre is minimal, I noticed a squeak on every revolution of the rear wheel, wheel was fine however the tyre touched at one point every rev, took the tyre off, re seated and moved its position on the rim, still almost touching, same spot on tyre, repeated and different position, still almost touching, cheap tyres maybe, good tyres, but maybe a manufacturing anomaly 10 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent bike Really good quick fitness bike, from a mountain biker, I use this for commuting and fitness and I am well happy. If your looking a fitness bike to use on roads as a commuter too then this is the bike for you. 02 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great machine at a nice price this is my first road bike as im a mountain bike man,and I love it very light and handles well.well built and a bargain at the price 11 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice bike Just got the bike today and overall I am very happy with it. The bike was very well packed and I got some freebie stuff with it like multi-tool, high 5 drinks and the pedal spanner. I was a little disappointed with the bike setup as the collar for the head-race was loose and needed to be tightened up before i could use the bike. 22 March 2014

Answer: 
As there is no eyelets on this frame, tradtional mud guards or pannier racks cannot be mounted; however a Quick Release mud guard and crud catcher would be an option.

This bike is not supplied with pedals; making the decision of which personal pedal style you prefer up to you.

Answer: 
you can only fit something like the crud roadracer as there are no mounting points for mudguards, I have some but not yet fitted, they will need modifying as there is only a few mm clearence between the rear tyre and the rear of the frame/front mech hanger,
Rack would have to be a seat post clamp as no fitting points on frame, I have one for my MTB but wouldnt fit iton the Vitus, would spoil the ride.

Answers

Answer: 
You should be ok to run 28c tyres, but it wouldn't run a 32c; the frame/ fork clearance would be too close with a 32c tyre.
23c or 25c is the ideal size.
