Hi all!

I bought a secondhand (2007) Ventana el Capitan frame in size XXXL (25'') last year, and could finally go trail riding on a full-suspension bike. I am 6'7'', and this is actually the first full-suspension bike I try that is big enough.

I enjoyed my 23'' 29er hardtail, but it was just fantastic to hit the trails with this ride! It both climbs and descends well, and it handles surprisingly well for its size in tight spots. I like the single chainring setup, but 32T is sometimes a bit too much with a 11-34 cassette. I did not spend any time adjusting the rear suspension last season, and I know I can get a softer and better setup with some effort.

I would be great to hear from to hear from other big Ventana el Capitan riders out there, and get some opinions on different setups!
