    100mm Morewood, Zula - 650b

    This is the new 27.5" Morewood, Zula that I helped develop. The Zula is a 100mm endurance race bike designed for a 120mm fork. This one is for my wife; I am setting it up for her as a short travel trail bike.

    I've been riding a pre-production Zula for a while now, and it's a lot of fun! I have said here many times, it really is hard to beat a well designed single pivot bike. This is a custom color; but I'll be importing the stock colors - black and raw.

    Cheers,

    KP

    Looks good, sir! Simple and clean - I like it. Congrats on putting out the first short-travel full-sus 650b. I'm sure you'll get a ton of orders for these in no time.

    Yes, that's right. Though they will come with a Fox CTD shock.

    100mm Morewood, Zula - 650b

    How is the 27.5 version different than the 26" version? I ran 650b on mine with no modifications, and no problems at all.

    Yep, it would be good to know the differences.

    It's good to actually see one at last!!

    Ive been waiting for this bike to arrive in the UK since last November and really had my heart set on one. Last I heard was they were shipping from South Africa at the end of April and I'm not sure that's happened yet...

    However, I couldn't wait any longer and the other bike on my shortlist was Patrick Morewood's new venture - PYGA. Namely the 120 650B. It's lush! And very orange!

    Freshly put together (yesterday) and still to trim cables and hoses, set bar height etc, which will be before, during and after my inaugural ride, which will be tomorrow!! Cant wait!

    Attitude, acceptance and awareness... Most of the time anyway.

    My large frame w/ Rock Shox, Monarch shock weighs 2,813 g or, 6.25 lbs.

    My wife's medium is right at 2,709 g or, 5.94 lbs.

    $1,850.00 USD.

    Why not the Rock Shox instead? I've been very unimpressed with Fox stuff.
