    Zion EBB

    Is anyone riding one of these frames from Jenson. $425 seems like a pretty good deal with EBB. I would prefer the vertical drop outs this time around. I'm 6'3" and 230, how do they fit, how do they ride as compared to a 1x1? Thanks in advance!

    Bump for this.

    It looks like a strong frame. I'm curious to hear input as well.

    Thanks guys.....

    haven't riding it. seen one though...looks ok.

    i live in so cal and have met a couple of guys that work for jenson. one of them told me that the ebb doesn't have as much offset, so you might have to use a 1/2 link on some ratios. also, i have read that the frame is heavy.

    geometry looks good, but at your height (which is almost the same as me, i am 6'2" with a 35" inseam), i'd prefer something with atleast 24.5" of effec. tt.

    for $400, i think i'd rather go with a kona with sliding dropouts or maybe the on-one inbred ebb. the customer service, if you have a problem, will probably be better with kona and/or brant at on-one.
