Zion Bikes Luna 2 frame - prototypes are finished !!!!
« on: February 05, 2007, 03:59:08 PM »
Hi everyone,


As I announced few weeks ago, Zion Bikes has a new flatland frame on the way.

It is new redesigned Luna frame that I have been working on for long time. It was defintely worth it because I'm really really really satisfied with the outcome.


Luna 2 specs:

TT:  18.70"
CS: 13"
HT angle:  75
ST angle:  71

Spanish BB
Integrated Headset (45/45)
Heat-treated:  Headtube, BB, Dropouts and Seatstays

Weigth:  1750 g



We made 4 prototipes in four colors: Pearl White, Electric Blue, Midnight Blue & Pearl Black .
We'll test them for a while and we expect them to be in shops worldwide this summer.

Today I recived few spy photos from my agent in Taiwan, taken before shipping the frames. I just couldn't keep them for myself so here they are:

Hope you like it...

The specs of these frames sound perfect for me, how would I go about getting hold of one? What about a Luna1, I liked those also...

looks nice!
kinda mixed up of many brands... gypo2 top tube, st martin darwin seat stays, mf derringer down tube. that drop outs kinda scarry for me though coz there's no bridge to connect seat-chain stays..
but st martin drop outs had proven me wrong.. so this should be ok.

he means at the dropout, both the seat/chain stays are connected straight to the dropout blade and the blade only, not to each other aswell like most frames.

will be intresting to see how it holds up.

Hi,

I'm glad you like new Luna.
Honestly, I think it is a frame that you just can't dislike. Of Course, it may not suit your needs, or it is not a type a frame for your riding, but I'm shure that noone can say "what an ugly frame".   :)

I'll build my bike next week and I'll post you some pics. Till then, here is a pic with Luna 1 and Luna 2 so you can see the improvements that I made on the frame:
