    Sorry Paul the "don't know Ventana History" wasn't meant negatively. And yep I did back you up as you inferred correctly about how Sherwood would want to do it.

    Enjoy the frozen Salmon Falls dirt! I'll be enjoying frozen ARB asphalt. (time constraints for a few others drove the decision to go roadie)

And Lateral stiffness is a biggie to him.
    Wouldn't a thru-axle like an x-12 on the rear solve any loss of stiffness by going to SP? Personally, I'd love a SP Ventana 29er with a bar lockout for the rear, that would be my dream xc bike.

    I can't answer that, since I'm not you. And I don't know your situation, ie complete new build up, or re-using parts, or if you need to have the latest and greatest etc.

    In my opinion (Governed by low available $$) the deals on Ciclon's are really good.

    I don't think that you have anything to lose in waiting, honestly.

    You risk loosing out on some closeout availability, but those deals will still be there as long as there is stock...ESPECIALLY if new/revamped stuff starts rolling off the production line.
