    I have one on order......It should be a sweet ride. Actually, I wonder if that's my frame being put together. I ordered an XL/21

    Way cool....I've been waiting for this. Could be my next bike, especially if Pivot doesn't offer something similar soon.

    I think you will find that Pivot releases a Trail/AM 650B long before a short travel version. It's obvious the market is long travel and I am not sure we will see any short travel frame until 2014.....Again Ventana is ahead of the curve, again!

    RockShox has released it's short travel 650B forks. Since Ventana does 90%+ of the frame building processes in house they have a product development advantage.
