    Ya, the cost difference between the US and the UK can really blow at times. Maybe you guys should try and work a deal with some of our members visiting families over seas for the holidays. I have friend who married an English man and they live outside London. Anyhow, they come over every other year to visit and will sometimes bring stuff or take stuff back.

    Just a thought :)

    Thanks, you got me very interested in the flat VP pedals... So interested that I bought them out right on the eBay. I wanted more pins so I've picked not VP-59 or VP-69, but VP-Vice... Can't wait to get my feet on it, hopefully it's worth it...

    And stout pins are thems!!

    I took one in the calf when I dropped the chain on my SS. Four stitches later and converted to clip less, all is good. Moved th VP's over to the commuter. I'll see if I can find a pic of my calf!

    Two questions:
    1: How is the WB fork?
    2: Does it say "DIVE" on your street??

    My 2012 Spearfish II. It's been around the forum, but now it's sporting some XT brakes and drivetrain, and also a new gold chain :rolleyes: I love this bike so much. Last week I did another 6 hour endurance race on it, and it was magnificent.

    I've got a Manitou Tower Pro fork and CK/Arch wheelset coming for Christmas. Getting closer and closer to where I want it to be.

    I think it says "GIVE". Dunno about the forks though.

    Your bike looks excellent. Thanks for the pedals... They look very cool ... I've ordered VP pedals, not 59 but Vice model with 12 pins... Hopefully I can get and try them before snow....:D

    Hey guys, so I've been riding this Zion for about a year now but I know nothing about the company since it seems they went out of production some time ago.
    Anyone know of Zion bikes? I think they were a JensonUSA brand, or something of the sort. Just looking to find out more about my bike!

    Thanks!

    Sweet rides everyone!
