    Pics of your Ventana!

    I'm looking at the El Terremoto in White among my line up for my next purchase early next year. Anyone have any pics in white frames? Or just post up everything!
    I'm keeping an eye on the Turner RFX, CHumba XCL, INtense 6.6, SC Nomad among my top 5, but I'm really interested in the El Terremoto. I have a buddy that has an X5 and he really beefed it up and loves it. I own a Titus and love it but I need something to fit me more and with the riding style I do (very aggessive) (6' 2" 230lbs)

    thanks!

    Crisllo...swwweeet rig. I love that color too! Nice build! Very cool close up on the paint job! How much does it weigh?

    El Salt...wow! Didn't know they had a "trade in program" or what not. That's nice to know. What color is your 6.0? Army green right?

    The green color is really called “Ghost Grey” – RAL 7009

    “Trade In” info:

    http://ventanausa.com/aboutus_warranty.html

    "Ventana further extends to the original purchaser a limited lifetime frame replacement policy whereby, for a fraction of retail price, the original purchaser may get a replacement frame in the event of a crash or frame failure. Replacement cost, model and color options are subject to the discretion of Ventana Mountain Bikes, USA."

    If you ask him real nice, I bet you could get S'wood to toss in a matching set of training wheels.

    Well I am suppose to take delivery of a White Terremoto fairly soon, I don't even know what the bike looks like, bought it site unseen. Maybe if we ask hard enough NWMTB (aka "the Chad") will take a pic and post it up to see what I just bought???????


    I'm just waiting for a set of wheels to come in for it , ended up buying a little bit too much bike stuff that I am also waiting for the Chad to recieve so he can send it my way for Christmas.

    19in. El Rey/Patron

    Due to my feeble posting skills, the one and only photo of my 19 in. El Rey/Patron I'm currently able to upload. It's the 4" travel and geometry of the El Rey, built with the El Patron tubeset and bottom bracket shell.

    Throwing my had in the ring....









    I gotta say, that I'd give white "the nod" as being top of my color choice only out done by an anodized or powder coat camo paint job should one ever become available.

    ok, I'll play along too...

    Man...these pictures are not even that old...yet so much has changed on the bikes already! Wearing out parts and UGI hit hard this summer.

    1: wife's X-5
    2: My 'old' El Salt.
    3: Bruja when she was juuuust built.
    4: Cuervo


    Wife's X-5 is still the same....imagine that.
    The El Salt is now Blue, new rear wheel, new tires, new seat, drivetrain.
    Bruja is pretty much the same, different back wheel, tyres, E13 dual ring guide, remote GD.
    Cuervo....hrmmmm, not too much has changed externally.
