    The Bendy top tube, which has been heavily discussed in the V forum serves as a visual disctiction, but also gives additional TT clearance when measured at the same point as last years versions.

    I don't have full geo for the Chucho, but the Ciclon has as much as a full 1" of additional clearance.

    Wonder if it will fit a 650B on the rear?

    Cool to know cuz visually it looks like it would decrease clearance - but I can see how it would be good if you were to have to stand over the bike right close up tight to the seat tube.

    Why the decision to not do an El Bastardo anymore though?

    Ventana 650b

    Hey M,
    I was rather sad to learn that Sherwood was "killing" the Bastardo for '12, especially since it seems that our 650b bike offerings (bikes + components) are growing few & far between.
    Have you (or anyone else) learned anything about the 2012 El Saltamontes fitting 650b?
    Regards
