    My Newly Completed SS Build

    Well Here She is.... Completed Zion, This thing Rides awesome, Super fast accelerating, Crazy Climber
    Good cruise= 13/14 Max spim= about 20mph, not bad for a 2:1

    Current Specs

    Frame: Zion 853(non EBB)
    Fork: Reba Sl-U-turn
    Crank: Hone
    CR:Salsa 36
    Cog & spacers: Gusset(18tooth)
    Chain: Izumi 3/32
    Wheels: Syncros dp25
    Spokes: Wheelsmith
    QR's:Salsa
    Hubs: WTB Speeddisk light front & XT rear(Brass nipples in back alloy in front)
    Brakes: Avid BB7
    Seatpost: EC-70 Carbon
    Bar: Salsa pro-moto 13 deg sweep
    Tires: Hutchinson Python foldable

    Right now it is somewhere about 24.5

    Still need to order Stem Saddle and maybe boone cog and aluminum rear hub.
    Should drop it down to about 22.5


    What do you think,,,,, Keep the yellow syncros stickers or not???

    How's that REBA? Does it do what it claims...and does it do it well? I've got an aging MX Comp and had an eye on the REBA since it came out but was scared to buy a first year model. Oh...BTW, the bike looks sweet!

    magic ratio?

    Nice build, I love my Zion, can't wait to get her dirty! What gearing are you running to go sans tensioner? I have my Zion EBB all built up but she's in the shop having the discs bled. I need to get some pics taken to post.

    sweet bike!!! especially the Syncros stickers. Do not be a sheep.....keep them! Besides, they will add to the rims ability to resist dents

    If you decide to remove em, send em to me and I can add them to my trailbike rims which run the DS28.

    Cheers

    Sans tensioner?????
    whats that?

    if that means no tensioner, than its a salsa 36 CR and a Gusset conversion set with the 18 that came with it. Izumi 3/32 chain with no half-link or powerlink. I had to put one cassete spacer on the far inner of the gusset set to put chainline straight and releive chain tension a bit.

    It's a good thing....

    It's a good thing you have that chain stay protector on there. The chain slap would have torn up your paint;-)

    Bike bike. Nice build. Get it dirty.

    the syncros stickers are fine, but you don't need a lizard skin unless you have a spring tensioning system
