Zodiac, Lg, Illusion Rootbeer

We’ve been doing a lot of frame-only sales recently, and I’m not sure why. I think perhaps with the scarcity of parts, folks are re-using build kit items and filling in from local shops or whatever online source fits their needs.

Cameron’s Zodiac was no different, although he opted to get the excellent Fox DHX2 Factory series shock as well. Within a day of receiving the frame he had it built up in all it’s wild glory.

Like all of Cameron’s bikes, this one got a pretty unique build. A Shimano Saint 1×10 drivetrain, matched with a White Industries M30 crankset keeps things tight and simple, and no doubt; robust. Paul Klamper disc brakes matched with Shimano discs will make for some ultra-reliable stoppers. A Wren inverted fork with carbon stanchion guards keeps the floating wheel weight down, and is great for small-bump compliance.

The cockpit area is pretty special as well. A fillet brazed stem from Monē paired with custom handlebars by Defiance frameworks keeps the steel thing going and looks awesome.

If you’re seeing a theme here, it’s not your imagination. Cameron does a ton of long bikepacking trips and rides in remote areas, and reliability is a first-tier requirement. The Zodiac fits right in alongside this smattering of unusual, but solid parts.
