    Flexy? Fugov you. The shop's comment was it looked pretty stout! It's only a 16" frame so not much material too flex. Besides being the svealt, finess rider that I am, I don't need one of those "T or F" superbikes you have to get me down the trails.

    Carry on.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    Congrats on the new frame! I've been on a few different Ventana's since 2005 and loved them all. Recently I've been seeing more and more of them on the trails.

    ...dude don't worry about it i've had 7 or 8 frames from ventana (loss count) one having more travel than the next, at my lightest i was 180 mostly at 200 and ride hard, pac. build jumps, hit jumps, road northstar and hit the rock gardens hard and fast so you'll be ok...ralph
    i need to ride more. building jumps takes to much time...my other hobby is kicking the crap outta my home built mook jong.
