    Also been looking to possibly go 650b.

    Is this the new bike, it sure seems pretty late model V design.

    Still on the fence since I don't ride singles much anymore, but planned (dreamed) to go all X fusion front and rear. 37 years of dealing with FOX...I want something different.

    Probably won't happen but was wanting to do a day glo flo green with blue hubs, sort of a Factory Kawasaki look.

    I hope this is just the beginning for short travel xc 650b's from the small builders - when fox releases a specific fork will be another good sign. Good job Ventana, looking forward it.

    No, the Zeus is the 140/160mm trail/am frame. The as yet named new frame will be distinctly "trail" with about 120mm of travel.

    Now we're talking! This is the bike I am waiting for....

    My gut feeling is if he's building this bike then he already knows a fork is available (or will be) besides the X-Fusion.

    FYI..When the 34mm 650B X-Fusion Slant finally becomes available there will be a short travel version that maxes out @ 130mm with adjustability down to 80mm. Internal stanchions are shorter to save some weight.
