after building several bikes and upgrading them and then still not being happy by the result :oops: i emptied my stabble :roll:
friends of mine have told me since ages why don't you build up a quality
bike instead off keep on building bikes that just were not wat they should be :oops: so then i read this tread.

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=55767

liked that build :wink: so i had to sell some stuff and find myself a titanium frame too but wich one?after days on the internet i finally thought about last years bike show when a brand called VAN NICHOLAS had a small stabble full off bikes at that show that i really liked,
and so i decided to buy a VAN NICHOLAS ZION :wink:

as you can see i allready bought some stuff at one off my favorite shops
http://www.bike2build.nl/who helped me a little bit with sorting out things :wink:

I had one of these and only got rid of a couple of weeks back. Nice bikes for a reasonable price. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

salty, i used Fatbirds to get parts for mine - a seatpost and bottle holder. They where great, even when i bent the seatpost it was replaced under warranty with no fuss.
