    Thumbs up Decision made - 2015 Specialized Vita Ws Elite Carbon disc

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Many thanks to the TE commenters on my previous post for advise. I ended up selecting a new (nicely discounted) 2015 Specialized Vita Elite Carbon disc medium purchased from nearby MS LBS. My back up plan if I did not like it was a 2015 Ws Vita Elite. We changed the stem to get the handle bar higher and closer, and swapped the saddle for my old cush gel LLBean saddle (circa 1992) that is still in good shape. Added my bell, mirror, and phone holder and I'm getting out there in prep for our 35 mile A1A Spoonbills and Sprockets ride in FL Nov 1. Love this bike - you can pick up with one hand and little effort. The Shimano Sora 9 speed shifter is quite and easy compared to my ancient Suntour stem levers on my old '85 Raleigh Marathon 12 speed. The Tektro Gemini disc brakes seem fine but I'm sure one of these days I'll really notice the difference when I need them. When I take it back to the LBS for check in I'll add the plug and play fender set, and 3rd party kickstand LBS owner thinks will work on this bike.

    Congrats! Beautiful bike. Which kickstand are you using?
    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.
