Take the Vitesse. Its revised 2013 frameset has shed a fair few grams, now tipping the scales below the kilo mark. It’s paired to a light, all-carbon fork and both are approved by the UCI..Read the latest review here.

Vitus Bikes Vitesse VRi - Ultegra Di2 Road Bike 

Our race-bred carbon frame now available with ultra-reliable Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting technology. Designed and developed by Vitus Bikes and Chainreactioncycles.com, the Vitus Vitesse VRi’s custom-moulded high-modulus carbon frame and pro-level transmission technology bring electronic shifting within the reach of the keen club racer or dedicated sportive rider.

Lightweight T700 HM-UD carbon frame – 950g frame weight - UCI Approved

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 carbon fork for reduced road buzz and precise handling even on broken surfaces.

Shimano Ultegra Di2 Groupset

New for 2013 the Vitesse VRi is available with 10-speed Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic shift transmission, bringing push-button gear changing out of the pro Peloton and into the hands of ordinary riders. Featuring many of the attributes of its premium Dura Ace Di2 big brother, Ultegra Di2 presents all the benefits of electronic shifting at a fraction of the cost. A 50t x 34t compact chainset combined with the 11tt-25t cassette offers a wide gear range ideal for all but the steepest of alpine ascents and will cater for the needs of racers and sportive riders alike. Braking duties are taken care of by Shimano Ultegra dual pivot callipers delivering the perfect blend of stopping power and modulation for handling and increased confidence on even the steepest descents. A Vitus chain catcher comes as standard on our carbon models to reduce the risk of damaging the frame in the event of an overshift on the chainrings.

Finishing kit

FSA bars, stem and seatpost provide lightweight, race-proven components inspiring faith and confidence in the bike’s capabilities. Lightweight Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels offer excellent acceleration and low rotational weight to deliver speed and climbing prowess. Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tyres offer low rolling resistance and sure-footed handling even in the wet, enabling you to push your boundaries into every turn. A bike that comes into its own when the hammer drops, the Vitesse VRi is ready to race. Are you?

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vitesse VRi? Top buy! Before I start, look at that price! Some reviewers slate the frame quality and say that's its too harsh, maybe it is a bit harsh at the rear but fit a carbon post and its sorted, the front end is as sharp as you are likely to get at this price point. Where else can you get a FULL Ultegra Di2 groupset and Mavic Kysrium elite wheels fitted to a carbon frame for under £1800? I've owned several carbon framed road bikes over the years and this one is just as good as any of my previous bikes, the bike is painted metallic black with yellow highlights and the finish is top class, The finishing kit is FSA so is well made and reliable, the inclusion of a PROLOGO scratch saddle is most welcome. The Shimano Ultegra Di2 groupset is as you would expect faultless, I have covered around 4000 miles on mine and only needed to charge the battery twice and have never needed to adjust any of the gear settings. The wheels are the very reliable Mavic Kysrium elites but Vitus have changed the tyres to the outstanding Schwarble ultremo zx so you can be sure that you have the grip to throw it in to the corners. Overall this is a very good quality bike for the money and you can be sure you will turn some heads when you pull up to the start line. 11 May 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 Shifting brilliant This Di2 system is brilliant. Watched Utube videos to easily adjust, needed a little adjustment of the front derailuer for alignment, but now runs very smoothly. I expect years of satisfaction. Vitus frame seems to be good quality, only have taken for a few rides (approx 200km), but all seems fine. 03 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb value for specification Just had this machine for four weeks covering over 600 km. No problems so far, took a bit of setting up but I am extremely impressed by the ride and performance of this flyer. Moved from a mountain bike to this hoping that I was not making a mistake by setting my sights too high. Having got used to road riding now I can say that I did not make a mistake and I am delighted with the performance and ride. Just getting used to being clipped in the pedals and re-learning the pedaling technique but still managed to do a ten mile time trial in just over thirty one minutes (bet I can get a bit quicker given time). The gear change is precise and quick. The tyres seem to be holding up nicely (some reviews say they don't last long) as they are showing no signs of cutting up or any damage/wear (I am only 70 kg though). Had lots of interest from other cyclists on the road attracted at first by it;s looks. They were further impressed with the spec as well and nearly fell off their steeds when told the low price! If you are thinking of upgrading to a Di2 machine I don't think you will disappointed with this machine. Changed seat post to a carbon/gel which made a heck of a difference to ride comfort. Saddle is suited to my petite derrier so will not be changing that. Fitted Shimano 105 sl 5700's pedals which seem more than adequate for my abilities. Planning to do Lands End to John O'Groats and back again so this will be a real test for the bike. Will keep you posted. 21 October 2013

Answer: 
No, You would need to do some of the setting up yourself, as in fitting the handle bars, wheels and setting up the brakes. The gears might need setting as well which is no major task, but will require some reading of the manual as you need to put the Di2 in to setting mode and run through the gears. If you've had experience of building bikes or are reasonably capable of setting them up then you will have no problems. A local bike shop would charge around £50 - £100 to set up a mail order bike.

Answer: 
This frame runs a 31.6mm seatpost and a 34.9mm seat clamp. If fitting a carbon post you might want to consider some assembly gel/ paste for added friction on the clamp area.
