We've been playing the waiting game whilst this cleared customs.... Frank's been a bit busy in the run up to Chrimble with Angie's new Zona steel frame, it's built for 'flatter' enduro racing and 24hr events that don't call for a 6" travel frame.

Before the paint job:

After the translucent paint job:

And last but not least a little name plate :)

I really hope BeepBeep doesn't skin me alive for using the same decals that he designed for my own frame again!

Will post some build pictures shortly, building it up with what we can find at the moment until the team's 2013 kit starts to arrive.

Very nice. Almost like a BMX 4x frame in that size and finish.

What is this paintjob? Interesting... I'd like to paint my ftw without smothering the welding, this seems a good idea... Beautiful frame...

:lol:
No problem if they're used on an outstandingly beautiful frame/paint job like this.
Seriously, that is super 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) (I want one!)

Patience padawan, it's not built yet, we're taking our time with it and waiting for some kit to arrive from the team's sponsors.
