    Nice build! But to clean!

    Ya know, I had no clue that they had zion branded components. Just did a search at JensonUSA and sure enough, stems, handle bars, seat posts and seat collars. learn something new every day. --Mark

    yeah, i didnt know either. i know i wanted to keep the price down so i can upgrade some parts later. the zion brand ones are pretty good value and as far as i can tell, just as good as the more pricy ones. im not a weight weeny so thats cool.

    IT IS TOO CLEAN! i just finished it today but going out tommorrow! i just got clipless pedals so i hope i dont crash and if i do crash i hope i come off the bike. hehe.

    I'm not much of a weight weeny either but I do like my bike around 26 (or lighter) pounds.

    ah, the joys of your first off-road clipless ride. I remember mine, I fell 4 times, all at a dead stop. It'll take about a month (or less depending on how often you ride) of riding to get used to them and after your first year, you wont even notice them. --Mark

    thanks!

    I'm actually in the middle of rebuilding it with some white parts instead of the yellow. Pictures will be forthcoming.
