Vitus Bikes Mach 3 City Bike

Revised and re-engineered for 2014; the new Vitus Mach 3 platform is the flat-barred city sibling of the road race focused drop bar Razor range; with a more prone and upright riding position for increased comfort and better visibility over cars and other city traffic. Need to add pannier racks and mudguards; not a problem; the Mach 3 has mounts for both to further increase versatility. 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 without the back-aching pain.

Lightweight 6061-T6 Alloy Frame With T700 HM-UD Carbon Fork With Alloy Steerer

The lightweight 6061-T alloy frame  has been designed with all year riding and commuting in mind. Up front Vitus have added a T700 HM-UD carbon bladed fork with alloy steerer to reduce road buzz from rough sections of road for increased rider comfort. They've added ample clearance for mud guards and added eyelets for ease of fitment on both frame and fork. Additionally included are pannier rack mounts to broaden the bikes capabilities as an all rounder for commuting and social riding. The Vitus comfort geometry offers a more relaxed riding position which translates into increased comfort and reduced rider fatigue, a feature that we have come to appreciate ourselves when making early morning commutes and carrying a bag on our back.

Shimano Claris Shifters & Microshift Derailleurs

Shimano Claris shifters have been paired up to Microshift derailleurs for dependable gear selections; a compact chainset with 34t x 50t rings offer a wide gear ratio in conjunction with the 12t-25t cassette which will see you through weekend group rides and over any hill you encounter on your daily commute to the office. Tektro R315 dual pivot long reach brakes provide predictable braking performance and lots of clearance for mudguards.

Vitus Wheelset & Finishing Kit

The Vitus wheelset features semi-aero rims which are laced onto lightweight alloy hubs. The rims have a 30mm V profile for improved aerodynamics and reduced drag whilst a CNC machined braking surface ensures consistent braking performance. High volume Kenda 25c tyres offer added comfort and a larger contact patch for improved grip. Vitus finishing kit completes the components package. Our alloy bars, stem and seatpost provide a lightweight and dependable components package.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beginners beware. Agressive geometry requires good bike handling skills. Bought one of these for my wife. Unfortunately, she doesn't like it... At this price point I'd expect a bike's geometry to be sensitive to a relatively inexperienced rider. However, it seems to effectively be a road bike with drop bars replaced with flats. Although the description makes it clear you can add mudguards (which I did), the toe overlap is already quite marked, which inexperienced riders (and my wife) might find unnerving. It also makes the handling quite twitchy for the sort of bike you (at least I) might expect for a fairly cheap hybrid/city/runaround bike. Don’t get me wrong, it's a quality, good value bike. I just don’t think it's suitable for the sort of people who’ll probably be attracted to buying it. If you like a fairly aggressive riding position then this bike is great. However, if you know that’s what you like, you’ll probably be looking at a ride at least twice the price point of this one. 30 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great value for money Bought the bike from chain reaction and it arrived in 3 days easy to set up and astonished how good the bike is for that money its comfy and under 10 kilos so it gets and goes very well despite its budget components have been on a few 30 mile bike rides and and have no complaints all in all a great buy! 11 June 2014

Answer: 
The bikes listed on our site do not come with pedals (unless stated otherwise) and are required to be selected separately.

This is as the manufacturer supplies the bike and also leaves the decision on which pedal to use; up to the customer.

Answer: 
La description des 2 vélos est correcte sur notre site internet, les différences entre ces deux vélos sont les composants.

Le 2013 est un peu plus léger que le 2014.

Le 2014 a été fait dans le but d'être plus affordable pour un plus grand public.

Answer: 
Hi,

All of our bikes are inspected prior to packing, the front wheel is then removed and the bars turned, then dispatched.

When the bike arrives all that is required is to turn the bars, fit the front wheel and tighten the headset; the bike is then ready to take out for cycle.

The warranty is 5-years for the frame and 1-year for the components.
