Fresh off the back of upgrading a Nukeproof Scout and giving away the completed mountain bike, we’ve now got something special for all you road cyclists.

We’re taking one of the stand out road bikes of 2019, the Vitus Zenium, and turning things up a notch, upgrading its key components which is something we reckon you might do over time.

And here’s the really good part – once we’ve built the bike we’re giving it away to one lucky winner. See below for more details.

Here it is, the fully upgraded Zenium in all its glory. Here’s a quick guide to all the upgrades we’ve installed…
