Rides an 80s Vitus Dural 979 Road bike.
Shot on State Street in Downtown Santa Barbara, CA.
Out shopping.

I ran into Arne a couple of times before. I was really into the Vitus Dural‘s simplicity. I especially liked the color as it was reminiscent of raw metal. It is made of a combination of anodized aluminum-magnesium tubes bonded to polished aluminum lugs. I think this is probably the most interesting aluminum bike out there. Even though a lot of the original parts weren’t there, it is still a really great example of a unique bike aimed at the mass market.
