Beware of Onza Zoot!

33 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, about a month ago I cracked my onza zoot frame near the seat tube, but I continued to ride it because i didnt have enough money to buy another frame. So yesterday when i was riding it, it cracked all the way all the way through. The surprising thing is that the frame didn't crack where the original crack was, It cracked on the tube where you would put your tartybikes chain stay protector.

well thats the story. Dont buy a zoot because it will break after less than a year of riding.

There's reports of them failing at the bb yoke/chainstay, it's a well known error with them. A lot of frames in trials nowadays don't really seem to last more than a year as Carl said.

I guess that this isn't that unheard of. Im planning on getting a fourplay frame, do those have a good reputation of holding up?

In the 4 years I've been on here I could probably count the broken Inspireds I've seen on one hand and have fingers to spare

To be fair, the fact that Revolver's zoot is still going strong probably means that it is one of the better made ones. (maybe)

This is already a well known problem although I'm not sure if the zoot pro frame has the same problem

You should get an inspired element frame, it's what I'm riding and nothing has gone wrong with it within the past year 1/2
