from what I can tell.........eayste

after doing some research on this board and some other sites.
It appears that the 2002 Zion Phoenix Road bikes are the same as the 2001 Litespeed Arenbergs(sp).
From what I have found . I have come to the conclusion that Litespeed outsources to them. But I'm not 100% sure.
I ordered a frame from jensonusa and built it up . They are of excellent quality and have emaculent welds.
They have a nice ride to them but are alittle flexy in the BB area. But I weigh 200 pounds and tend to push to big of gears.
The sad part is I don't have time to ride anymore due to family and work (amoung other things) and am in the process of finding a buyer for it .
I have ridden Cannondales and Peugeot's
in the past and like the C'dales.
I think my next bike will be a r1000
we'll see.
Yes. nmJuanmoretime

Also, I think the new Excel Macalu Cirrus Titanium is made by Merlin (aka Litespeed).
So why are we not all buying Zions?OwenMeany
