i originally ordered a valky and they don`t have the size available for me so, instead upgraded me to a zep at no cost. it`s a very good bike for the money(got the ultegra components)and a very good customer service as well!
Carpe Diem: Great BikeRich Clark

My Carpe Diem, which I've had since mid-June, is a joy. It's equally at home on my daily commute or on solo centuries through the southeastern Pennsylvania countryside. I bought it through my regular LBS which set it up perfectly.

It's configured as a light touring bike, with touring wheels and rims, a road triple in front and a MTB rear.

I really enjoyed the process of getting a bike that had everything exactly as I wanted it, and that fits me like a glove.

Oh, there has been lots of discussion about Airborne both here and in other forums, you just missed the fireworks.

I have two Airbornes in my fleet, both more than excellent. The picture of my Z is somewhere in the Gallery area. Enjoy your bike.
2001 Zepjs5280

Got my Zep in February this year. No pictures but here's the setup; Ultegra triple, Ult/Open Pro wheelset, Thompson Seatpost, Max Flite Trans Am saddle, Ritchey Design Logic Pro pedals. Have about 1600-1700 miles on it, rides great, very predictable handling IMO. Quality was great out of the box. Welds are clean and consistent. I was looking for something light, comfortable for longer distances, low maintainance, and good value overall all. That's exactly what I got, couldn't be happier unless they gave it to me for free.

From when I first got it, I've made a few changes since. I got mine in late March of this year.

Love my Carpe Diem. The best bike I've ever tried. A super combination of a Touring Capable bike that is super for fast training/recreational/fittness rides. I have it configured with touring gearing and light components. I don't race it but it has no trouble keeping up on lunchtime rides with the guys who do on their racebikes.
ZEP with Ultegrabear

got mine this spring, I love the bike but as I became stronger I find in now I a bit flexy and its clear to me that I should had gotten a smaller size, I would say get a size smaller then you think you need, nice ride but it does flex under hard out of the saddle on a hill ( 190lb). I think it would be a great marketting move by airborne to give you a choice of colors on the decals. I had mine remove,,cant stand them.
