    Does anyone have any good reports on the ZOO PITBULL? I'm very interested in getting one (the shorter one) with a 1060 wheelbase. I'm pretty short, and I currently ride a Magellan with a really damn short wheelbase. I'd like to go a little longer, but not as long as most newer bikes are today. I'm not doing much competition (maybe one or two a year) and prefer natural to urban, but I DO live in the city; so a little street riding will take place. I know al ot of people think it's a Coust rip-off, but I still like it. I just want to hear some opinions from people who own this bike and what they might have to say about it. Thanks for your time. Oh, and all opinions are welcomed, but I'm not very interested in starting another debate on the copying subject.

    they are actually a decent bike i suppose, none have broken that i know of. but they are flexy as anything else. although i suggest you get a caisso pro-model from faction bike instead. it is also 1060mm, and looks hella cool.

    Elan,
    Are the Caisso's available from Faction yet? It looks great in the pics, but I'd like to know a few more specs on them before my purchase. Also looking at the XTP in the shorter wb model, anyone know the BB height on those? Thanks for the suggestion

    XTP and Caisso will both ride awsome. Much greater then the zoo.

    I think you may be right, looks slightly above with the fork he is using anyway.

    You've got that right. Damn these things are expensive, especially when you've been getting everything at employee purchase price for the past fifteen years:( And all that money for something I plan to bash up. It just hurts my feelings a bit is all

    I would say thi sis a nice looking frame and it seems strong, maybe not reliable. My friend is buying his friend a PitBull, I will get back to you as soon as I ride it. Later

    I think the Caisso frame is really expensive. But worth every fucking penny.

    Remember Bwanger the XTP and Caisso frames are the fucking best and I'm guessing you won't need to replace the frame in a Loooooong while.

    Always pays off to buy quality material. I recomend the Caisso frame to you!!!

    I'm very pleased with my pitbull. But it's the only trials bike I've ever had. Mine measures 1065 with a kona jump fork.

    Koxx stickers on your bike makes your bike 10x better.
