    El Capitan review in Dirt Rag

    Why did they review this one? It's not even listed on the Ventana web site anymore.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    well.... they do "long time reviews", so it was probably still a running model when they actually rode it...

    Whilest not everyone can dig the discontinued Capitan I still do..........however , I may go astray from the 29er zealot thing someday and go for a 650b Bastardo instead ! TIG.

    DirtRag is the bong....opps I mean bomb. I feel the 650B momentum rolling.......I will go on record to say by 2011 85% of the mtn bikes rolling this great earth will be 650B........26er, 29er, 69er & 96er will be a thing of the past. I also predict Shimano buying Fox........exhale......

    And by then, there will be at least 3 650B tires available.

    If you want an El Captain, just call Sherwood and order one. Had a guy here a few weeks err months ago who was to conflicted on to go 29er or get the T-moto. Let him run several of my bikes ragged then he orders a bike online and different manufacture.
