    First 6.0 Earthquake in GA?! - Porn Overload

    First off...Thanks to Teresa, Sherwood and Chad @ Red Barn for helping make all of this happen! And of course D-Rock for being my pusher.

    Hmmm....what could this box be?



    Unpacking



    Before we got started...she had to get a couple of things done...

    Bathroom break



    Hanging out on the couch



    Checking out all the posts of the day...



    Hey! What are you doing in bed with another woman????!!!!!



    Frame shots. The color is custom matte black.















    It's starting to get there!



    Done! Full Shots.





    She even plays well with Turners

    Thanks! I couldn't resist on the couch shot. What I should have gotten a picture of is Jenn's face when she found out that both frames made it on to the bed.

    Did I mention you are going to get your bike back with M4's installed instead of the Moto's?

    So I've done the couch shot. Is a crapper shot more of a Ventana thing?


    I had to poke back, sorry. RS, I love the new avatar!

    She had to use the restroom before we got started. Sometimes builds can take awhile and I didn't want her having to take a break halfway through. That would have annoyed the piss out of me. So I made her go before hand.

    It was a random thought I had...take a trip in my head one day!

    Final build weight is 35.20 lbs as of right now. There are a couple of things that are going to bring it down just a little bit (tubeless tires).

    RIDE REPORT

    "demands confidence"
    "rides lighter than it is"
    "more flickable"
    "very balanced"

    Ok...now that the quotes are out of the way...this bike is SOLID. Absolutely no flex that I can feel at least. It holds it's line through just about anything, and all you really have to do is weight the back, get off the brakes and hold on. The geometry is exactly what I was looking for and very similar to the RFX. Just slack enough with a long enough wheelbase without comprimising a whole lot of climbing ability. The TM does like to sit a little bit farther in it's travel, but with the CCDB...it is a perfect match. I was able to dial the LS compression to almost eliminate any pedal bob without loosing the plushness that I love about Ventana frames. I never dial out all of the pedal bob because I like the increased traction during climbing even if you do lose a little bit of efficiency. I am not going to win any speed climbing battles on this bike, but I wasn't wanting to either. I needed something that got me to the top with the point of heading down. Did I mention that is also rails turns? It does.

    The first time I really noticed how stiff the frame is was in the drop in the pictures above. When I landed...it was very uneventful, and that was a very good thing. This bike does have a leg up on the RFX for this kind of work from what I can tell.

    I have one thing that will improve the climbing ability...right now I am running tubes and tubeless kits. Once the Betty UST's come in...I will drop a little bit of rolling weight and that makes a huge difference.

    Bottom line...this bike does every thing that I need. It gets to the top, it comes down better than my skill level and "it makes me a better rider."

    Sorry this review isn't more technical...it just feels right.

    Thanks...I have the 5-6 foot to flat stuff pretty much down now...I need to work on the larger drops to transitions. I think it is a speed deal that is holding me back right now because I have had a few high speed "incidents" lately. The 50mm stem that I have coming in this week should help that.

    if you don't crash you didn't ride hard enough!

    your only mistake was doing it with camera's present.

    I would rather try it and crash than stare at it, not do it and then lose sleep at night because I should have grown a pair.

    Long term review....

    The perfect bike. I have taken this thing on everything from xc weight weenie all day epics to shuttle only dh runs and it takes everything like a champ. The only issue I have had so far is taco'ing a rear wheel at Carter's and that wasn't the bikes fault. Looks like I need to get a second set of wheels for dh runs. I do like the look on guys faces when you pass them on climbs with a 35 lbs bike on flats when they are on 26 lbs clipless. It is nice to finally have a bike that can do it all.

    Nice creek gap Robb!

    I've been flogging the Tmoto out on the local trails in my new home town (Canberra, Aus) and finally feeling like I've got some terrain that suits the bike! New wheels and XT drivetrain on the way - DT 5.1s on Hope Pro IIs for XC/light duties and my old Mavic 721s on Pro IIs for more DH stuff...

    two wheelsets is the way to go...

    No pics...Kovachi already has it and I didn't have a camera there when it was at it's worst. Lets just say the tread pattern on the tire still made an "S" even after we worked on it.
