Vitus Bikes Sean Kelly Frameset

A frameset fit for The King

The Seán Kelly LTD Edition is our flagship road bike designed in collaboration with Vitus brand ambassador Seán Kelly, the most successful Vitus rider in the proud history of the marque and the man regarded by many as the finest Classics rider of all time.

The Seán Kelly frameset has been officially UCI approved for use in ProTour level racing and certifies that the frame and fork meet the shape requirements set out in the UCI regulations.

Our frames are tested to and exceed European safety standards with all frames being certified to CE EN14781 which meets current safety regulations.

Lightweight T700 HM-UD Carbon Frame – 950g Frame Weight

Our lightweight high-modulus uni-directional carbon frames are manufactured using T700 HM-UD carbon to combine light weight and impeccable handling with just the right balance of stiffness and vertical compliance. Complemented by a matching HM-UD full carbon fork with tapered steerer for reduced road buzz and precise handling even on broken surfaces.

The frame features ‘classic’ racing angles and a distinctive black and green livery to reflect the Irish heritage and sporting record of Kelly, who notched 80% of his 193 professional victories astride a bike bearing the Vitus badge, most notably the iconic aluminium-framed Vitus 979 which he rode with distinction in several Tours de France.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Frameset! Excellent, responsive, sharp, modish frameset material. I will recommend this item to my friends as well. It come with A++ packaging, complete with FSA headset, carbon spacers. Only gloomy comment is that, shipping takes time plus the duties and taxes I shoulder here in my place. I hope shipper to declare future orders as DAP. 18 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and responsive F&F I built up this frame with Campag Centaur and Fulcrum 3 wheels taken from my 23 year old Raleigh SP 853 frame. After 2 weeks, I'm very happy with the frame - light, responsive and no discernible bottom bracket flex. It is faster than my old Raleigh frame - though only just. I did, however, get frame shimmy on a Dartmoor descent at around 45mph. That was fixed with the usual knee press on the top tube. I thought about dropping a star from the rating, but it's a problem with all frames at high speed and the descent was pretty extreme. 25 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and stiff, excellent quality I bought this frame to replace an alloy frame and have transplanted its SRAM Rival groupset and Fulcrum Racing 5 wheels, and having ridden just over 270 miles in nine days, the difference is like night and day. The frame accelerates well, climbs easily and is sure-footed on descents. I have read reviews of this frame that suggest there is an element of frame flex when powering up a climb, but I haven't seen this - I have ridden up Carlton Bank (no. 58 in 100 climbs book) on it and didn't detect any loss of power transfer. Comfort wise, the frame is great, whilst I've yet to test it on a century I did a 60 miler last weekend without any issue, even with alloy bars, stem and seatpost. Similarly on a 38 mile each-way commute yesterday. Out of the box you need to cut the steerer tube and install headset and forks, this was a completely painless experience. In summary, if you're looking for a carbon frame set and have the skills to install groupset, you cannot go wrong with this one. 17 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent frame This frame as far exceeded my expectations. It is excellent value for money and I would definitely recommend it if you are thinking about building a bike yourself. The frame is rigid and responsive as well as light (Good for the sprinters!). I received the frame in one working day which was exceptional. Included in the box is the frame, forks, mech hanger (attached to the bike), and also the headset and spacers. I am delighted with this bike and even more happy about the price. Bag one while they're still here! 13 August 2013

Hi there

Does this frameset come with a seatpost clamp? If so, what is the size? The seatpost clamp on CRC is described as 34.9mm however the Vitus website says the seatpost tube is 31.6mm on this frame.

Can you confirm what the seatpost tube diameter is for this frame and whether it comes with a seatpost clamp?

Does the frame come with a steerer tube. It is not clear from the pictures or the description on CRC. If it does come with a steerer tube, what is the diameter - 1 and 1/18"?

Answer: 
You will only receive the frame and forks. You will have to buy the seat clamp separately. The clamp is 34.9mm and the seat post is 31.6mm. The forks will come with a longer steerer tube so that you can adjust the height using spacers to your personal preference. The steerer diameter is a tapered 1-1/8” Upper,1-1/4” Bottom.
