    Is there a physical store to try for size? It doesn’t appear to be but it’s owned by Wiggle! Which again don’t have physical stores either!? Maybe there’s another partner that does stock the Vitus range? Thanks in advance.
    johnnystorm's avatar
    Vitus is their direct sales brand, Nukeproof bikes can be found in bricks n' mortar shops. Best thing to do is look at the geometry charts and see how it compares to your current bike, or ro something available locally.

  3. tom_spolsky's avatar
    Can someone explain to me this bike setup a little bit?

    A while ago, it was standard to have 3 gears in front and about 6 at rear in MTB bikes. What happened for the last few years, when I wasn't too much into bikes, that now it has diverted to 1 gear at the front plus many at rear?

    Hope it's not too stupid question.

    Thank you all
    Bertz99's avatar
    trend is to simplify with a big dinner plate on back
    less parts, less to go wrong, less to shift, less duplication of gears, weight saved, cheaper, more control on chain, more clearance for tyres ...

    not all 1x though at top end speed normally is in 3x/2x advantage and why road bikes are not following the same trend (edited)

    No cycle to work/cyclescheme at Chain Reaction, which is disappointing.
    This.Is.Dog's avatar
    This.Is.Dog Author
    I don't think they can drop the price this much and use vouchers because they have to sell at a bit gger discount using vouchers. The scheme is part funded by the seller. (edited)

    VR version is available for another £130, is it worth it?
    stu888's avatar
    I have the VR and definitely worth the extra money as you get a dropper post, better fork and it’s 11 speed. Couldn’t update it for anywhere near that money
  7. Erooz's avatar
    Was going to purchase last night but thought I'd wait until morning, won't be bothering now, gutted 😔 (edited)
    Malcolm_Duff's avatar
    The 27 is only up to 499 if that helps.
  8. Malcolm_Duff's avatar
    27inch or 29. Is it just a preferance to control and handeling?
    This.Is.Dog's avatar
    This.Is.Dog Author
    If you're L/XL get 29er
  9. s20544's avatar
    I’m looking for a good deal on a      ~£600ish hard tail on cycle to work scheme. chain-reaction/Wiggle not currently accepting this scheme. Anyone else offering price match or similar pricing?
    NeverBagHolding's avatar
    Well it’s not a hard tail but it will do the job, I ordered a specialised Sirrus x 2.0 2023 from Tredz for £600 on sale atm using cycle2work (edited)
  10. otak's avatar
    By the way - any respected web sites for bikes reviews, not so much affected by the adverts?
  11. daftpunk78's avatar
    As a biking novice but looking to get into it, is this a good all rounder for the price, and how hard will the build be?
    This.Is.Dog's avatar
    This.Is.Dog Author
    For all all rounder the Vitus Mach is great, I posted it on HUKD today, faster on roads too, a MTB is always slower in tarmac than a hybrid
  12. Henno's avatar
    I'm 6'3, would I need XL?
    FluffyMatt's avatar
    You can choose L/XL but going for the larger frame is generally what is recommended
  13. Stiz2theMiz's avatar
    Forgive the question but do you need to buy pedals as extra with this?
    UnicornHunter's avatar
    likely plastic ones, but if you're buying a £500 bike, you're probably wanting to look into buying a set of decent pedals as well.
  14. adamM3's avatar
    I haven't had a bike for about 25 years, but would be keen to get back into it. Is this the sort of bike that would cover a bit of everything? Or is it only really for going off-roading? I don't want to buy something too cheap, but also don't want to go crazy!
    FluffyMatt's avatar
    It can definitely do a bit of it all. I'm guessing you're talking road and off-road riding. 

    It's spec'd more for some trail/mountain riding but it'll be a comfy steed for some road pedalling too
  15. lewis48's avatar
    This or a Trek Marlin 5 at £550?
    pars's avatar
    I'm no expert but looking at the specs then easily this, I'm sure more knowledgeable MTBR's will confirm it .
  16. rugman's avatar
    If £500 is your limit, this is the MTB for you. Even if you have a bit more, get this and buy a dropper post with the rest.
    Great value
  17. Bobbajob's avatar
    50578744-C1nLY.jpgAll assembled and working well.
    Lovely smooth ride and the gears are a revelation. Just keep flicking up and down. No need to worry about the front derailleur. I was a bit confused by the front hub. I'm used to normal quick release. I thought there was a bit missing.
    This.Is.Dog's avatar

    What a beauty!!!
  18. Notorious_Lee's avatar
    Mine came Tuesday all in the 1 box despite saying it was shipping in 2 parts. All assembled last night & I was off work today so took it out for a spin.

    As above, ride is smooth & I’m really impressed with everything so far. Thanks again to for posting the deal.

    I had a nightmare with the bike I ordered from CRC/wiggle.
    Why_so_serious's avatar
    Did you really order it or was it just a nightmare you had?
  20. samsmith66's avatar
    Absolutely do not understand why you would pay £500 for a bike. You still need to do the pedalling. Why buy so expensive?
    Zimmy's avatar
    Bikes aren't just a cheap way to get around, some people actually enjoy getting off road and enjoying the countryside and exercise. Now you get back to your phone on the couch, I hear there's a new Twitter service to check out.

    Can't take a bike brand that has to use ugly frame reinfocements seriously.

    Why don't they just design and weld properly instead?
    Klunky's avatar
    Because the alternative to a gusset is expensive extrusions and butting.
  22. gio6500's avatar
    Damn it price gone up, my fault for umming and ahhhhing!

  23. michaeljb's avatar
    That is a really decent spec for the price, I bought the calibre deal for 200 the other day otherwise id have jumped at this
  24. Adam_Ash's avatar
    Wow unbelievable hot deal. I paid full price for this a few months back and I thought that was cheap. This is ridiculous 👀
    pars's avatar
    How are you liking it , I've just ordered
  25. Notorious_Lee's avatar
    After seemingly months of deliberating, I’ve finally chose my next new bike!

    Ordered. Thanks for the post Dog

  26. grant0r's avatar
    Bloody Nora, this is a great bike for that money, picked the Sentier 29+ up a few years ago and it's great. A lot of bike and high quality parts at a reasonable price...yet alone this price.. if you're in the market for a hardtail, then don't hold back on this!
    This.Is.Dog's avatar
    This.Is.Dog Author
    How you enjoying yours? They're wicked bikes
  27. Peter_bob's avatar
    If I didn't already have a two year old Nucleus I'd be snapping the 29-er (edit: I meant the VR) without even a second thought, but this is also a fantastic deal. You don't often see bargains this good in MTB. (edited)
    This.Is.Dog's avatar

    How's yours? Got a pic?
  28. Tomasz_Kozik's avatar
    Thank you OP. Just what I needed for my son birthday! Ordered.
    This.Is.Dog's avatar
    This.Is.Dog Author
    Lovely! As part of the deal though you have to invite the HUKD Fam to his party too for cake!!
  29. S-_L's avatar
    Great deal. Forks alone are 250. I would have bought if this was on Tredz as just got an MTB on C2W.

    What did you get?
  30. rjkoneill's avatar
    thanks. just gone for this. Been looking at hardtail bikes circa £1k for around three years now and finally pulled the trigger.

    It's too good a deal to pass up
  31. Bobbajob's avatar
    Well, I didn't think that I needed a new bike, but this was too tempting to pass up.
    Cheers OP.

  32. durango95's avatar
    Price has now gone up. Currently still showing as £469 on the page but in the basket it is £549. Gutted as I was in the process of checking out...
    Malcolm_Duff's avatar
    The 27 is only up to £499 if you could live with that.
  33. Bobbajob's avatar
    Mine has been delivered.
    One box with everything in.

    Box is massive and wouldn't fit in my car, so had to unpack at work.
    This.Is.Dog's avatar
    This.Is.Dog Author
    Did you play in the box after you unpacked it? Be honest
  34. Notorious_Lee's avatar
    ^ It could be worse, I ordered the bike but have spent the last 24 hours umming and ahhhhing over what colour pedals to order! I know it comes with pedals but I'd like to treat myself to a decent set.

    first world problems I know
    gio6500's avatar
    I’d rather be in your situation than mine
  35. Minstadave's avatar
    Very good! This is a big step up over the Nucleus for the same money. Never seen it this cheap. (edited)
    This.Is.Dog's avatar
    This.Is.Dog Author
    It's crazy good! I wouldn't expect to see it anywhere near this price
  36. HotDan's avatar
    Amazing value, definitely hot! I have the Vitus Dee 29er. It's not as good as this, it's a single speed MTB/City bike hybrid, but the build quality is amazing. It's coming up to 9 years old, used most days, and not had any problems at all. When I get a new bike it'll be the Vitus range from Chain Reaction Cycles. (edited)
  37. Lilly12's avatar
    love VITUS, very good bike.
  38. Faithfull's avatar
    Shame it's not got internal cable routing.
    FluffyMatt's avatar
    Some would say thankfully it's external
  39. UKScottDeals's avatar
    Very well-rounded bike.
