Product Description

Viking Cycles Established 1908 First established in Wolverhampton in 1908 the Viking brand has a history, rich in the tradition of top quality road bikes and throughout the century. Quality, style and durability have always been the hallmarks of Viking cycles. Today's Vikings embody those core qualities and look to widen the range to suit the ever increasing demands of changing lifestyles. For 2013 the range includes: Road, Fixed Wheel, Trekking, Comfort, Heritage, Tandems, Urban Sport E-Bikes and City Folders. No longer produced in Wolverhampton, each model now utilizes the technical developments of today's manufacturing processes and lightweight tubing. Viking Vitesse Ladies 6 Speed Traditional Bike The Viking Vitesse might be something you seem to be familiar with, borrowing a little traditional Dutch bikes and little from traditional British bikes. The Vitesse combines the traditional features of low step frame, a full chainguard and a front basket, with modern alloy rims and powerful alloy V brakes and super slick Shimano indexed gears. Always a willing partner whether it's an occasional jaunt to the shops or your daily commute, the Vitesse comes equipped to meet your needs with full chromo-plastic mudguards, front mesh basket, rear alloy carrier rack and a comfy saddle.

Nice bike - fast delivery. Bit complicated for my wife to put together. lots of bits to put together - but then again it is what it is. seat height could have gone down a bit more except for back rack, however it was a 15'' height - just have to stretch the wife to fit it better. Nice look and feel to the overall bike - she loves it!

Bike is just as in the picture: girly and beautiful, but too heavy (I have to carry the bike in and out the house everyday) and therefor also slower. Self-assembling is not a good idea if you have no idea how to do it.

Since new it makes a very annoying noise when switching above the 3rd gear. I even took it to a bike shop and they couldn't figure out what it was (I thought it was the assembling, but they adjusted everything and still couldn't get rid of the noise. After 5-6 months the plastic piece that holds the front mudguard into place broke.

I also learned front baskets are not practical. When you load it you lose a bit of control.

On the other hand it's very comfortable and pretty and apart from the above I haven't had any issues with the bike. I guess I'd go for a lighter/faster bike now, but if you just want it for week-end rides or short city rides it's ok.

This was great value for the money. Very easy to put together even though I am a female! Its very comfortable to ride and the 16 inch frame is perfect for my height at 5 foot 4. Lovely product would highly recommend.

The Viking Hertitage bike is a really lovely bike which encouraged my non-cycling girlfriend to take up riding which is a big plus point. However, stuff that Viking have to sort out. The instructions were from the worng bike which was a pain (you kind of get the point & can put the bike together quite quickly. The Basket isn't massive but quite useable. The difference from this to the 7 gear one is more about style than function as the added gear won't make a massive difference. However, the other problem is another big pain the tools are made of some aluminum which quickly break when work to set-up the big. The seat is very good but for the wider soul a new seat can improve the bike. We had to let the local bike repairs have a final check and sort out the basket stand before use which is a pain but the more techincally minded may have not needed this. Overall, my girlfriend loves the bike and as she hasn't ridden in 20 years this makes this bike a winner.

bought as a suprise for my wife, who has a back problem, the upright position is ideal for her, took about 20mins to put together,its sold and everything is adjustable, i might have been tempted with one with more gears, but she said it would only be more confusing,[a very new beginer] apart from a few adjustments on first ride its been great,and bike looks great in white.came very well packed with nothing missing or damaged.regards

Lovely bike and very easy to ride as so comfortable. It was dreadful to assemble and I ended up taking it to a cycle shop for safety check. Good value though and just what I need for the shops etc.

I bought this for my wife through Amazon. The cycle arrived amazingly quickly. She is delighted with the cycle, it has everything she needs, simple gears, basket, comfortable seat and large wheels which make it easy to ride. The handlebars are traditional and more comfortable than modern designs. She is a smaller person, and the step through frame really works for her. The paintwork looks smart and it is definitely a winner. The only downside was that I found the assembly a bit difficult, and the rear tyre was punctured (inner tube had been cut during assembly). I contacted Phillips and they were very helpful providing replacement inner tubes and I sorted this out in no time. I bought a men's Viking bike from Phillips via Amazon a few years back and have been very happy with the quality. I would recommend buying this ladies cycle.

The first bike was damaged but they collected it and sent out a new one. The bike itself is nice just make sure you tighten all the nuts and bolts
