    No problems to report during this time ! Now this frame to change a trainning bike, with a lot of new parts of a Zaskar 2012...more pics soon:
















    - Zaskar 100 Expert 2012, small, weight 20.68 lb (9380 kg):
    Major changes, weight loss, but the efficiency of an I-drive remains the same.
    Changes in geometry, head angle (69 *), made a big difference in time to a tecnical singletrack...
