    Im looking for info on the El Chivo frame cant seem to find any reviews on it. Is anyone riding one. Id like to set one up as a single speed to replace my trek 69er.

    Well, I know that a few were built, and are being ridden.

    (see bottom of page)

    And Sherwood built up the first one, (The camera is mounted on his Chivo for this vid)

    He liked the 69'er concept enough to move on the Chucho.

    Ive emailed ventana they have them in stock. I just want to hear from someone who has ridden one. Preferably someone who has also rode a trek 69er to give me a comparison.

    I guess these weren't big sellers cant seem to find anyone who has one. I guess I will have to call ventana. Im hooked on the 69er concept but dont want to go full suspension with the chucho.
