    Is this the bike advertised?

    I'm debating purchasing a gently/barely used hybrid. The seller says it's a 2014 Vita Sport, but it looks like a Vita to me. Does anyone know for sure which it is?Click image for larger version.

    Well I tried to find it in the Specialized bike archive but can't figure out how their search works. Maybe it's a browser issue. On the Trek site, it's easy to go back and find bikes from previous years, with photos and complete specs, so hopefully you can find the 2014 Vita Sport on the Specialized site to compare to the photo.

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    Neither...

    The bike in the photo appears to be neither the 2014 Vita or Vita Sport, but rather it appears to be the 2013 Vita Step Through.

    they may have been fooled because the 2014 Vita Sport does have a pink/black color scheme, but the frame is undeniably a step through model.

    That's good info, Eden. Here is the bike listed on Blue Book, so OP can determine if the price is reasonable.
