    Corvette yellow ciclon!

    I swapped over a few favorite parts from my Terremoto before I sold it: RF Atlas cranks, straitline pedals, and Formula k24 brakes (3rd bike now).

    I have 1 ride on it so far so it's a hot one. The Revelation RCT3 dual position 15mm is surprisingly plush and works well so far with the rear. Not feeling the urge go to with a bigger fork yet, given I had a 36Van on my moto and a coil Pike on my toro.

    Currently running 150mm up front, 140mm in the back. Love the lower bottom bracket, even with the pedal drag/strike. Few add ons.. ISCG tabs, 142/12 rear spacing, seatpost dropper cable mounts for when I find one I like.

    Took me a long while and a lot of sacrificed zipties to get the cable routing right, esp the rear derailleur.

    Also, many^2 thanks to Chad

    Nice color choice! I recently had mine repainted and almost went for yellow. Looks good.

    Nice build! I had a chance to see the frame around at Red Barn Bicycles before it was packed and shipped and I was drooling.... I am curious, what did you use to protect the chainstay from chain slap?

    Damn!!! Another sweet looking new style Ventana.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    3M 2229 mastic tape.
    Wasn't able to get an inner tube wrapped around the housing mounts very smoothly, so went with the 3M tape instead.

    First of all, Sweet new ride, like the SCHOOL BUS yellow!
    Second, 3M Mastic is perfect here's how I did mine to leave the mounts exposed.

    Yup, I still have it and have been riding that for the past 5 months since selling the moto.
    Below is a pic of it as SS, but I've been running it with 1x9 this year.

    @Stripes: haven't weighed it yet. The moto was about 33.5 with a 36Van and dhx coil.
    The ciclon has somewhat similar specs but with the rp23, revelation, lighter frame, rims, saddle, etc, i'm hoping for under 30lbs.

    You are such a dork.. likeable though.
    No "new" bike for me. Pic is of El Cuervo. Which had the swingarm zip mounts before the "new" design frames did.
