I just got a zion ebb frame and I haven't finshed building it yet. A few questions.

Does anyone have one? Do they like it?
Do I need to lube the ebb before I put it in the frame? I know they can seize and I want to make sure it doesn't happen. If I do lube it do I lube the whole thing including where the bolts make contact?

Any info would be great.

Thanks

Grease the whole inside of the BB shell and the outside of the eccentric.

You read my mind!

I just got my Zion EBB yesterday, and it's at the LBS getting the headset installed. Check out the "post your single speed" thread, The OP (Trond) has a Zion built up pretty nice. Post pics and a ride report when you get her done, and I'll do the same! Thanks for answering my question before I asked it Shiggy! Can I use regular park green grease, or do I need something special? Thanks!

My build

Mine is a combo of new stuff, old parts from my converted ss, and parts I robbed from my Trek Fuel FS that now hangs almost naked and lonely in the garage!

Zion 853 EBB frame
Surly rigid fork
Red CK headset
No name machined stem
On One Mary bar (not here yet)
ODI rogue lock on grips
Hayes hydro brakes
Rolf dolomite disc wheelset
Cheap Tahoma post ($5.50!)
Bontrager Saddle
Shimano BB (UN-72?)
Truvativ 5D cranks (way old)
Salsa 36T ring
18T rear cog (from an old cassette, once I nail down the ratio, will order an endless or maybe even a Boone Ti.)
Bontrager Jones 2.1 rear tire
Kenda Kinetics 2.35 front tire

Those with a Zion frame, what rear tire are you running, how wide? I am hoping to stuff something a bit wider in the rear, but we'll have to see!
