The specs on your site say CS is 445. So do they adjust from 445 to 465? Thanks for the info. It's cool that you're using Zen for some of your frames!29+ R853 is 5.25lbs - DB Cr-Mo 4130 Heat Treated is 5.75lbs
On the stays, you have 20mm of adjust-ability. Plenty of clearance slammed forward.
The `Lucky Penny`is made by Zen - The other 29+ overseas
Thanks. possibly for next year an AL6061 version of the 29+ and possibly a Ti as well
When will they be available for order?I can help. what would you like to know?
So you guys are having two 853 bikes made? One offshore and one from Zen? Can you give details on any differences between the offshore and the one from Zen, or are they the same bike, with the same materials, but one being handmade in the USA.pre-orders are being done right now through dealers for delivery in April.
all bikes are available complete or as frame only
Offshore from only R853 is $999 retail - Cr-Mo $499 retail - The quality is very similar. The R853 will be slightly lighter and slightly more rigid
