I've been looking around for a new complete bike, and now I'm undecided between the WTP Trust and the WTP Zodiac, both 2014 models. The Zodiac is 120€ more than the Trust, and I can stretch my budget to buy the Zodiac, but I want to know if it's really worth it.
They both have similar frames (full crmo, removable brake stuff and integrated chain tensioners), and besides that, the only big diferences between the two are the front hub, stem, rims and sprocket (the Zodiac has a spline drive sprocket).

So, should I stretch my budget to buy the Zodiac or should I stick with the Trust?

I'd say the zodiac is worth it.. The tires on the zodiac are 30 each.. Then add the magic,fork and you'll be saving a lot..

Thanks for all the answers. Just one more question: the Zodiac has a spline drive sprocket, wich is great because it eliminates tight spots in the chain, but I've heard that spline drive sprockets wears out the spline. Is that true and is it something I should be concerned about?

Go with the trust. Beat the friggin snot out of it and replace broken parts with stuff you want as needed. Frame looks raw and is bueno

It doesn't eliminate tight spots I'll tell you that much.. I bought a brand new profile spline drive sprocket and I put it on and there was a massive tight spot..

That's what I've heard... I never had a spline drive sprocket, but I would like to try one.

Well, I still have 1 month to decide wich one I'm gonna buy... Both bikes have nice parts and both look really nice. I'm 100% sure I'm gonna have enough money to buy the Trust, and if I buy the Trust, I'll be happy enough. But if I have the money to buy the Zodiac, I'll go for it.
