Van Nicholas say:-
The workhorse of the Van Nicholas Titanium hardtail stable; the Zion maintains our high standards of impeccable craftsmanship and great value. The frame incorporates integrated options for disc or V-brakes, classic Van Nicholas geometry, size specific 3Al/2.5V seamless Titanium tubing, and our acclaimed hand-brushed finish. It’s an all-action, do-anything-to-it frame on and off-road.
The Zion geometry has been designed to deal with a variety of off-road riding and is incredibly comfortable. The Zion is capable of taking forks with 100mm ‘give’. A suite of braze-ons allows for any kind of braking system you prefer, including disc brakes, and means the Zion will easily cope with touring.
Full 3Al/2.5V Ti construction using aerospace-grade, cold-worked, tapered and size-specific multi-shaped, seamless tubing with CNC machined detailing. Available in 14, 16.5, 18, 19.5 inch & Tailormade.
The Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 has been developed for both pros and performance oriented hobby cyclists who can appreciate it because of its reliability, perfect single gear ratios, wide range of gears, low maintenance and easy operation; its weight and efficiency are ideal even for pro racing.
The sealed gearbox ensures reliability and durability even under the toughest conditions. The even increments of 13.6% from gear to gear make it possible to always ride at the performance peak. The overall range makes sure that you have the right gear in every situation. Pure fun is guaranteed.
The SPEEDHUB 500/14 is operated by a twist shifter which shifts simply by pulling separate cables up or down. The indexing of the shifting lies not in the shifter as with common designs, but inside the hub. There is no wear on the indexing system nor need to adjust it.
