Amit takes another of the VSF T200's.

TheVSF Fahrrad T200 is proving to be a very popular model this year.People seem to like the fully enclosed chainguard and the premium 8 speed gearbox.These upgrades beyond the T100 mean it is very much the the gents equivalent of the ladies S300.They make a lovely pair of bikes.In fact this is exactly the option that Amit (pictured receiving his bike )and his wife have taken.
I have added the extra pics to show the gearbox and chainguard.The red band around the gearbox enables you to distinguish it from the standard 8 speed.
By the way the most important differences between the two gearboxes are firstly that in the premium version the plastic moving parts are replaced with metal and secondly the seals are much more comprehensive.Something to be aware of given the evil winter weather we now seem to experience in this country.
Having said that I have been impressed with the reliability of the basic 8 speed box.I have sold hundreds now and never had to replace one.
