    no-one got one? CRC didnt have the spec and Vitus themselves have gone off to look for a tech to tell me... but he never came back...A tape measure appears to be a rare commodity for UK bike manufactures / dealers

    Copied the product image for the Vitus into PowerPoint and drew a few lines over it.

    Measured 2 different parts of known size as reference (seatpost = 27.2mm / brake rotors = 160mm) as well as the A2C.

    Figured out a range for the scaling factor based on the known measurements.

    Applying that to A2C I'm coming up with somewhere in the range of 335-345mm.

    good work
    I asked Canyon as well for their
    https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/kids-bi...l-20/1606.html
    and they measured that for me - was 35cm... so youre likely not far off. I was hoping for more ...
    Vitus promised again today to find out - Ill post it if comes. The reason is as mentioned before I need a donor bike to add a Manitou J Unit fork to I got for cheap which @ 120mm travel is 43cm (!) less sag and when I add spacers for 80mm travel likely 39cm ish less sag... so looking for cheap alternatives to Cujo 20+ like yours with decent A-C and low BB which will benefit the fork addition (as Cujos are rare here and I only want second hand so I can dump the components and front hub etc which wont fit). No point spending a lot as then may as well just buy a complete suspension bike and flip the fork..

    Is this what you are looking for? Bottom is on the centerline of the axle.
    He quickly outgrew it...

    perfect - many thanks - exactly what was needed.
    Forum power beats the response of the company who makes and sells it - which says something (although Im not sure what!).
    Likewise re: outgrowing - at the rate Im going by the time my boy gets a new bike from Dad he will have left home...... better get a move on...
