    Seems like every year I get to jonesing for something new and eventually give in to the urge. This time it's a Ventana El Patron:

    Sure it's an addiction, but the question remains:

    Do you want to get cured?





    exactly
    I used to run tubes like you are, but then I got thorn in my wheel.

    Well.... as long as I keep it to one a year I think I can stay married. Don't tell Fiona I said that though.

    The real question is, did you pick the frame because of the color?

    Umm... it was sort of an eBay oops. I was selling some stuff on eBay and hit my "Ventana" search and there it was. I liked, threw out a low-ball bid and scored it. Saying "Did you buy it because of the color" implies some sort of premeditation that was completely lacking. When I got the email saying I won it I was surprised.

    I'll put more pics up as time allows and the build progresses. I came to work late to meet FedEx and sneak a few pics so not much time.

    Unfortunately I don't have the components to really give this frame what it deserves.

    Been a huge V fan for a long time, just haven't been willing to drop 2 large on a frame. It will be fun once it's built up. I'll PM you when I get some time and maybe I can hook up with the Ventana ride at Slamin' Balls.

    I know someone just like you... not me but I know someone(nativeson). It is a good addiction to have... at least it is healthy for the body!

    Enjoy your new beautiful toy

    Well now when I am about to sell my racer x, you got ventana. Remember you said in Auburn that you would take it off my hands? Just kidding. My mooto zx will be here in 4 weeks.

    You guys are just encouraging him. I may have to sleep on the couch with yet another bike in bed.

    Hmm... bars, shifter, cranks, Seatpost, seat, and rear DR from the Titus. Brakes from the Monocog (which were on the Titus, but originally from the Enduro). I have an extra 29er wheelset at home.

    hmmm

    New headset, new grips, new drivetrain.

    I can't help it, I've got all these parts, can't let them go to waste.

    ... well, I suppose I can take up heavy drinking instead. Would that make you happy?

    Didn't think so.
