Rebuilding Vitus 979 - any tips?


Legendary Member
Hi all

Just picked up a frame and about to start sticking bits on it. I've found out about the 25mm seatpost (groan) - any other heffalump traps awaiting me? Any tips generally about putting a bike together from the frame up? Any advice much appreciated.

Italian bottom brackets are a different size to UK ones, and one of the cups is threaded t'other way round. Use threadlock.
I suppose I should say that with an Italian frame you shouldn't even think about fitting Shimano, but one of the Campagnolo tifosi will be along in a bit to say that, so I won't.
