    My new Zion 660
    I have just finished up my new Zion 660. I will post some picture as well but i had a quick question.

    I noticed that the steering is really quick, almost to quick. I have an 80mm Manitou R7 fork on it. Does this fram work better with a 100mm fork? I am using it for racing.

    Thanks,

    Here are my pics...

    nice build, very clean looking!

    I run my zion with a 100mm fork. It feels perfect to me, handles like a dream. --Mark

    it turns really quick but i am getting use to it. I love how responsive the bike is. I think i will keep the 80mm until i can afford a really nice 100mm.

    Have you ever had trouble with back wheel coming out of the drop outs?

    Thanks

    frame feels great with 100mm fork on it, very comfortable.

    Never, it could be your quick release. What kind are you using? --Mark

    It is a 17". I love it. I have since changed out the seatpost, wheels and tires. I will post a new picture.

    Thanks

    Well the Zion 660 did a great job this race season. I had 5 podium finishes and won the overall in the 40+ beg. class in the MSC(mountain State Cup) series.

    I think i will keep her.

    Here she is in action...
