Really nice, that should be fun. :)

For what it's worth, Fox recommends running the brake line inside the stanchion, not on the outside. It seems weird, but after trying it I found the clip works nicer and it's not particularly close to the wheel...


Will certainly look into it man. Thanks for your infinite building knowledge...haha. See ya Wed!

Bought it in Febuary to replace a Cannondale hardtail. I love it ... smooth riding and a great fit. I'm definitely happy I went FS sooner than later. The herniated disc in my back agrees with that decision.

Been riding a 29er (GF Cobia) for the past couple of years and love it.

Steve I am jealous! That is what I have been looking at. where did you get it? How much did it set you back?
How much does the frame weigh?

How are you going to build it up?

Hey, Randy--I got it direct from Ventana. They are having a sale on many frames and I couldn't resist the price on these...I'll PM you the details...

I don't have a bike scale but it's right around 6 pounds I'd estimate. It's a beefy bike--the downtube is huge! I'm switching a lot of the parts from my C'dale Rush: Elixer brakes, SRAM XO shifters and derailer (X9 front) Shimano SLX cranks. New stuff includes a White Brothers Fluid thru-axle fork and Velocity Blunt rim/Hope hub wheelset.

Finished building my Ventana Bastardo and took it out tonight for a quick ride at Anderson Park. It's pretty sweet--pedals really nice and rides plenty plush. The 650b wheelsize is a great option--rolls nice, handles great!
