    Looks good.

    Agree that a couple of pics of built up bikes would be good.

    Just read the Dirt Rag article. Got me thinking that maybe a section for Sherwoods rides would be good. He could put his whole history of bikes in there.

    wish I knew. I am really looking forward to what Ventana can add to bigger AM bike niche. I love my current Terremoto, but wish it took my Reverb. Also I know its kinda blasphemous but I think the rear is kinda flexy. Hopefully the newer chainstay design helps that out.

    i'd have to agree w/ the "kinda" flexy comment. the Terremoto followed my '01 La Bruja & it definately aint as stout as that. it's no noodle, just a little on the not quite beefy enough side.i was a little surprised when i saw the small, round tubing on the TM. somewhere in between the huge oblong LB tubes & the TM tubes should be just right. really looking forward to seeing what the next generation Terremoto is all about, although i'm thinking it's gonna be more bike than i can take advantage of.

    I don't know what this means but the El Cap and Zeus are listed 2013 product.So I guess that means Sea Otter.

    No El Caps have been built. Ergo, no pictures.


    Heard tubing supply is a major drawback to getting these new bikes ready.

    Their lineup is looking tremendous, but I wonder how such a small company can maintain so many models...anyway, go ventana

    To proliferate even further, a 120mm Grasshopper would be really tempting!
    whatever...

    Looks good. It's not a selling point, but it sure is nice to see a well thoughtout web site, and that yellow El Ciclon may have just sold me on the curvy tubes. That thing is hot!!!

    And something that I noticed on the new site under the Owner Appreciation Trade-In Program... "You do not have to be the original owner to participate in the trade-in program.". Is this new? Or has it always been this way?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    OHM, it's been that way at least the last few years.

    Internal are they having problems with the new curved tubes? Are they a US supplier? Tooling up always sucks.

    The El Cap top tube is due around May/June. Frames should be available shortly after. The delay is simply due to the complexity of the tube, with variable wall thickness, forming, etc.
