What are the differences between these two frames? Well besides $200. Is the Valkyrie not intended for racing or what?

Thanks, Derek

The Zeppelin has multi shaped tubing and is a little stiffer. The Valkyrie has more traditional geometry (shorter top tube) and round tubing.

mostly tubing shape and price i think. the zeppelin seems to be very very popular, but i bought a valkyrie on budget this summer and havent a single complaint about it.

i figured i'd take the $200 and spend it on other important stuff (shoes, helmet, etc)

if youre budget minded, get the valk. you wont regret it.

This is typical imperialist European comment that is nothing but lie. We in China know what we are doing when we make bicycle. We are damn good! Airborne is damn good made in China bike and we are proud to let you know that.

We are keeping close eye on our cousins in Taiwan and we must admit that they can make good bicycle at low cost. But they have to pay their spoiled workers so much.

Here in China we keep our costs low. Our workers are not greedy capitalists and this will allow you to get great deal for your money.

So buy damn good Airborne frame, no matter what kind, and be proud to tell your friends it is quality built in China! Tell them how much money you save!

If your going to write with an asian flair you need to work in the words "Magnificent" and "Marvelous" as often as possible. I dont know why but they use these words often when writing in english.
and take out the "damn" as we (Chinese) don't use this word ...jkh
