Раритетные карбоновые рамы : Alan и Vitus

Прикольно.
Теперь у меня есть две раритетные карбоновые рамы :  Alan и Vitus.

Unlike today's carbon and aluminum (Al) frames, the ones made by Vitus (France) and Alan (Italy) were simply an extension of the traditional lugged steel frame. In the case of Vitus they were bonded to Al lugs while Alan bonded and screwed their tubes into their Al lugs. Guerciotti also marketed an Alan Al frame and still does so today in its cyclocross version. The early Vitus and Alan frames were light and particularly smooth riders.
