I commute 15 miles roundtrip on my bike each day. . . . . . I bought a Vitesse D5 in March that has a internal hub. . . . . 2 weeks ago, I bought a Speed Pro TT for long distance rides. . . . I think both bikes are good. . . .however, if I plan on long rides, I much prefer my speed pro for the tires and ease of gearing. . . . re: price difference and value, well if you already have a full size with a full range of gears, perhaps the vitesse would be more than enough. . . . however, if for 25 mile rides, I think might be a stretch on the vitesse. . .
