- Vitus Sommet CRS 2019
Are there any Vitus Sommet owners out there?? I’m looking for real world experience of the Sommet as its in the list of possibles for a new bike…been a while…I’m still on a Stumpy FSR Elite from 2011!!! (Its not broken; its in unbelievable condition; I really don’t need to replace it; but I really really want to!!!!)
There is, what looks like, an amazing deal on a 2019 model via bike24.de but I’m hesitant due to not being able to see/sit on/try the bike first.

i’ve got a 2018 one (vrs) pedals amazingly well for the travel and flies downhill, makes a great all rounder. It’s an easy bike to get used to, and remains fun even on tame trails. They ship with rubbishy bearings as standard though, worth upgrading to MAX type with more bearings when the existing ones wear out.Posted 2 weeks agonukeSubscriber

This is so true. Me & two riding mates all have the 2018 Sommet CRX …the swingarm bearings on oldest/hardest ridden Sommet did collapse; it wasnt fatal to the frame but we’ve all either repacked the original bearings or replaced with max.
Other than that, spot on bikes with some top notch components for the money particularly if with a decent discount. If the frame survives a couple of seasons with trips away, it won’t owe us anything… hopefully they will last longer though!Posted 2 weeks ago
