Having not cycled a bike for about 10 odd years, I recently started cycling again to and fro work on my 15 year old Raleigh mountain bike (cost around £150 at the time). As such other cyclists regularly passed me by probably wondering why I was so red faced and puffing when climbing up hills and slopes, I chalked it down to unhealthiness.

Since upgrading to the Vitesse it has been the difference between night and day. The hills I used to have to climb everyday to work, from which i've had to get off and push several times on my Raleigh, on the Vitesse now is literally like a knife through butter, I could not believe it, you can barely even feel the incline. An impressive bike.

Assembly was very easy, most of the important parts are already done for you, I didn't do any adjustments to the gears or anything like that, I just hopped right on and it was great.

Downsides.

It doesn't offer the same comfort as my old rugged mountain bike, I can't drive my bike up a steep curb, and you feel the bumps on the road more, but that was to be expected with a road bike.

I also had an issue with the handle bars. As many mentioned the gears require you to change hand position from the brakes to adjust, for everyday riding it's not really a problem for me, but for racing or longer distances I can see how this could get annoying.

Also, I prefer to ride in a more upright position, but this isn't really possible with the position of the brakes. So your kinda forced into a forward leaning, racing position.

Considering the price of this bike though, i can't really complain, it's pretty much one of the cheapest bike you can get.

On another note, this bike looks good, a little too good.

Verified Purchase
When I received it, it was dismantled into frame, handlebars, wheels and pedals. The tools are provided to assemble it, and this is not a difficult procedure.

One assembled, the following tasks were required:

1) Tighten brakes - they are loose so as to allow the wheels to be inserted.
2) Set-up indexed gears - they were pretty close, but some adjustment will always be necessary.
3) Tighten spokes - the spokes were quite loose, which would mean that the wheels would go out of true fairly rapidly unless the spokes are tightened. This requires a special tool, which isn't provided.
4) Pump up tires, of course.

None of these are surprising, and would probably be needed for any bike that doesn't come from a specialist bike shop.

The quality of most of the components seems perfectly acceptable, although my brother-in-law wasn't impressed by the brakes (I think another review mentions the brakes as well).

My main grumbles would be that the frame is pretty heavy, and the tyres are extremely wide. On the frame side, this is probably an unfair complaint, as the bike is very cheap - and at least the additional weight makes it more sturdy (and it is satisfyingly sturdy). The tyres, however, are really not racer tyres - indeed they are the same as on my tourer, whose whell rims are 1.5 or 2 times wider. This is actually mentioned in the product description (700x28C tyres), but most of us don't visualise this sort of numbers. The tyres being this size also means that mud-guards can't be fitted, as there is insufficient clearance between the tyres and the frame.

I used to own another racing bike that its price is double this one. When I thought about buying a new one, I found this to be the cheapest. I was expecting a moderate bike to use it for commuting. What I got is a much better one for this price. Here are the pros and cons:
Pros: Very nice look, comfort ride, breaks are excellent, seat is high quality, gears are easy to use, very well packed and very easy to assemble.
Cons: Heavy (but less than expected, it is 15.5 kg weight), tires are not very thin (as shown in image).
Best use: moderate distances travel (not more than 10 miles). it is not the kind of bike to be used for training.
Recommendation: I recommend for non-professional bikers. If you are professional, then it is expected to pay more.

Over all, I am so happy with this purchase. It is really a good value for money

Vittesse Sprint 21-speed Alloy Racing Bike

Well what can I say, I am no really keen cyclist, just a middle aged man comuting 6 miles a day wanting to keep reasonably fit, I ordered the bike Monday and it arrived Wednesday, almost fully assembled with just saddle, front wheel, pedals and handlebars to put together, I then made some minor adjustments to the brakes and gears and set about a few trial rides to adjust saddle height and angle of the handlebars, it feels lovely to ride after the very heavy mountain bike I had been using, it looks and feels real quality and compared to my old bike is very light.

I know the gears will need fine tuning, I was able to adjust the front part of the gears but need help with the rear wheel part.

The only minor gripe I have at the moment is where the hell do I put the front and rear reflectors??
I also agree with previous comments, you have to adjust from a racing position to brake to an upright position to change gears but I am sure with time I will be able to keep one hand over the brake and change gear with the other.

Overall I am delighted and having seen colleagues spend well over £1000 on fancy carbon fibre framed bikes only to see them snap I think this is a fantastic deal!
