    Thanks for the info. Good to hear that the DR Zeus was an isolated problem.

    So now I'm wondering what happens when one bolts up the Zeus dropouts to a Ciclon. 650b clearance?

    The swingarm is the same but the brake stay and rockers are different. You would probably have clearance problems at full travel as well as messing with the bb height.

    All customer bikes go through secondary QC that would have caught this error, The DR bike didn't as it was shipped out right away to them.

    Mechanically the design is just fine. As demonstrated by my 225#ís beating on it without any issues.
    Speaking of my review, here it is with more pics.....
