    old news?

    how'd i miss that? just found out today i knew about the sales Ventana was having, but when i heard about this i called CC & they said it just started yesterday. i bought a Terremoto when Ventana had it on the spring sale, but the X5 & Ciclon were never part of Ventana's own sale.
    oh well.

    Deals on Ventanas @ CC

    I can't see Ventana licensing a suspension design, or making a wholesale change such as that.

    If history shows us anything then their making a pretty significant change. Everyone thought it was interesting when Turner started blowing out their bikes in 2008 and assumed nothing was going on with them at all. I read through the thread that was posted above and its the same stuff everyone said about Turner.

    I'm not saying something a change of that magnitude is coming but if their blowing out their whole warehouse then something significant is coming. I have my theories but honestly what the heck do I know.

    Correct, this is Vince's idea of being funny to repeatedly misdirect the board.

    Just for measure, am I correct that the price CC are offering is excluding a rear shock?

    That makes it slightly less of a woo-wee deal, but still a good discount.

    I may be slightly bitter as I have just, finally, and after much deliberation and back and forth, plumped for a El Cap. I couldn't wait any longer and it was still the best bike i test rode.
