    New changes to the 2011 Ventana...Line-up?

    What models do you think will stay in rotation as "mass produced" options?

    I think the days of the Cuervo/Bruja are done and the Terremoto might see the axe too. So what will SG and crew be focused on, just hardtail, 4" and 5" 26/29r options? I wonder if the X-5 will make the cut. He had planned to cut it one model year...was it 2006?


    I look forward to seeing what is on the table.

    If he's going lighter, I'm sure the X-5 will not survive. I'm sure anything longer than 160mm is out too. Just a hunch.

    I would expect the Terremoto and El Ciclons to survive, but probably a smaller lineup and Sherwood concentrating on 26er XC/AM, 29ers, and 650Bs. I would be surprised if the tandems go away.

    Any chance of a 4x or BMX bike? Those would be cool!

    on teh FS 29er front, apparently they are getting rid of both the El Rey and the El Capitan, and sort of combining them into a median of the two with the new changes. El Reytan?

    'They' told me that as I was deciding whether to buy the existing El Cap.

    By your definition, NONE, There are no "Massed Produced" Ventana Frames!



    I believe they refer to them as "Stock Frames", or something similar.

    Do you have any more details? Amount of travel for example?

    My understanding is that there will still be a 4 inch travel bike in the 29er. I sure hope so as I pre-ordered one.

    I'm hoping for a soft-tail 29er-front, 650b-rear.
    Since when did Need have anything to do with this?

    i really hope they keep a 6 inch + frame like the terremoto. would be a bummer if not... although i imagine sherwood would make just about anything if asked and given enough $$.... t

    T-Moto is a confirmed carry over.
