    I'll add it to my list after there are more than one tire available and a good 5" fork.
    Nothing to see here.

    Sounds interesting...but I like to have more options. Frame looks sweet though.

    Yep, met Chazza in person, Noel of Knolly and Sherwood of course. Also met the infamous Shrek and Aaron as well. All cool dudes and not a single one tried to twist my arm into leaving Portlant with something in a frame box.

    It was cool talking to Sherwood in person.....he designed a Level 2 Custom El Padino right there for me and talked about incorporating the new El Bastardo's seat taco gusset into it to give me the clearance I need. Now I just gotta harvest some shekels after the "other" bike gets here in 2 weeks and then I can get started on my clown wheel bike.

    When I get home I'll post a pic......its neither green.....custom one off I think.....lotsa sparkles and lotsa different colour variations at different angles.

    I currently only have 6 bikes right now.....1 on the way, and one in the planning stages (the Padrino). My wife is the only one with a Ventana right now.

    So...it's a....

    ....bike with alot of the mommentum-inducing attributes of the 29er with the flickbility of a 26er? I think I've found my next bike. I'll christen it at Mammoth this summer.....assuming Aaron makes the arrangements for the trip....Aaron?

    Mmmm. That is pretty sweet. Very enticing.

    Sweet! If it comes with 5" of travel I just may pony up for one instead of a 'Moto. When available, of course.

    The only problem -- a dearth of fork and tire options right now. I cannot bring myself to buy another WB fork. Give me another option, please.

    Though Kirk has done a great job of bringing some pretty decent tires to market so quickly.

    It's true

    Yep it is a 5" bike. I was also at the show and talked to Sherwood and Theresa. They say that it's basically a Ciclon with slightly adjusted geometry.

    And I had just about settled on a new Ciclon...

    The El Ciclon is a great bike.......I don't think I would ever sell mine. I'm sure forks for the 650B bikes will be limited to WB for this year......not sure the non-modular forks can switch that fast due to tooling costs.
