Wheelset option for old frame Vitus 1982 vintageBarra
Mar 19, 2003 4:46 PM
I have a old 20 year Vitus frame with a 25 year old Campy Record Groupset. Still riding on the orginal tubulars and would like to upgrade to the new wheel technology. I believe I have a problem with the frame spacing on the Vitus to purchase what is current being offer in wheelsets. Can you suggest some options for me?

I'm assuming you don't want to change components. If the hubs still run smooth you could have a shop lace them to a set of new clincher rims. If the hub is pitted or worn in another way you might be able to find similar hubs on the internet or in older bike shops.

Another option: I recently upgraded a mint Masi with 2002 Record after respacing the rear. What a bike, 18lbs with with steel frame and fork.

The rear triangle can be respaced at any frame builders shop.
