So, I have a Ventana El Capitan from 2007, which I love, but I wanted to jump on the updated geometry bandwagon. I was looking at upgrading to a new 2013 El Capitan, but something within me was craving more travel and even slacker chainstays.
On a lark, I decided to call Ventana and see if they could make me a 650b rear, 29er front El Capitan/Zeus hybrid...Capitan Zeus, as I call it. 30 minutes later, I was putting a deposit down on what is probably going to be an exceptionally fun bike!
It is gonna be a Ventana El Capitan front built around a Rockshox Pike 150mm fork (dual position so can drop to 120mm) and 67 degree head tube angle. Rear will be a Zeus with 140/160 adjustable travel and 17 inch chainstay on a 142mm thru axle.
Seat tube will be 24 inches, and top tube somewhere around 27 inches.
Best part...trade in of my old frame got me 30% off the new!
I am reminded again of how fantastic Sherwood and Teresa are to work with!
