    The Latest Incarnation of my Zion 853

    Well this bike started out life as a rigid 69er and then on to a front suspended 29er, and then it had an older Z1 MCR on it that was a tad too tall and too stiff for my weight.

    So I picked up an older Psylo and it is a good fit heightwise and springwise for this bike and my weight.

    So here's the latest incarnation of the Zion - now as a 26" single speed hardtail with a RS Psylo up front. It feels pretty good in this configuration!









    Need to get some more zip ties at the hardware store for the front brake line. Also may switch over to hydros in the not too distant future. and maybe a black seatpost if I can find a shim to utilize this silver one on my Craftworks FRM 125.

    Cane Creek makes a shim that will work, cheap too. Small world I have an 853 in my house, and I had a CW 125 a few years ago.

    Crazy! I guess I should have bought a Zion 737 instead of the Inbred I recently purchased.

    How did you have your Craftworks set up? PM me with details.
