    New El Patron

    Semi-custom frame in Grinch Green, Lefty, 980 XTR, lightweight goodies. Weighs in at about 24.25 lbs as shown. Good times! This is my 2nd Ventana...also have an El Bastardo which is a blast too.

    Sweet! That's the little brother to the El Rey, right?

    Thanks...

    Travel = 80mm rear, 90mm front (120mm Lefty w/30mm of spacers.)

    Yeah, lighter, shorter travel El Rey I guess. It used to be a production choice, but can still be had on a custom basis. Only a couple rides so far, and getting more comfy on it. The hardest part is getting out of "single-speed mode" again for the season.

    It was right at 6 lbs with shock. It's a semi-custom, based on an 18" production size.

    Pretty close to a pound lighter than the El Rey. That is a light build.
