What's the 500 weigh?



The Vitesse 500 weight is about 150g heavier for the same size.

I don't see the issue - he's identified himself as a "shop owner / manufacturer". No different than than madcow posting or any other shop owner here.

Nice to see something different - that's a decent weight for the money. Wonder how it rides?

A friend of mine who lives in said "Valley of the Sun" (Phoenix, AZ) owns one of these bikes and is very fond of it. I've ridden it once and it seemed pretty nicely constructed and it rode just fine. Plus, the frame wasn't too expensive because (evidently) there are special prices from time-to-time.

Having switched over to the 400 from the 500, this thing is a missile. I noticed better speed on flat land. As far as climbing, I noticed it was the same in terms of performance, but the 500 is more comfortable on the hills.
