I hear these are made by litespeed...is this true?
Are the frames identical to a particular litespeed?
(I'm referring here to the Zion Phoenix)

If so, which one and why would litespeed do this?

Any downside to buying one of these? Resale value?
Warranty?

Thanks!

It's the same as the 2001 Arenbreg, uses a standard headset, or the current Excelsports Macalu. Yes they are made by Litespeed. I did own a 2001 Arenberg great frame, excellent ride. The tubes are smaller in diameter and if your over 200 lbs you might get some frame flex. The reason why I sold mine is I picked up a great deal on a Vortex frame. I actually feel the Arenberg was more comfortable then the Vortex, not enough to go back. I don't think there's a downside to the frame, especially if the price is right. You will find it has an excellent welds, very nice brite brushed finish and the curved seatstays look cool. Go read the reviews on this site about the Arenberg.
