    Riding Like a Girl - Terremoto

    My daughter is about to turn 17, and has been begging to upgrade to a FS bike. So I got this ET - not exactly a "half way measure" - I'm actually jealous. But for the fact I'm on a 29er and way too big for this small frame, I could easily spend a lot of time on this rig. Nice isn't it?

    Well, there goes the neighborhood. Now you'll have another thing to worry about when the boys come by the house...(internet humor may fail me here but I got to try!)


    Nice looking ride man. That's one styling rig. Love the color too.

    The whole rig was $1200 if you can believe it - gotta love Fleabay. I plan on making a few changes to suit her riding abilities - double ring and bash up front, lighter wheelset, flatter/narrower bars, smaller rotors, and somewhat smaller rubber - otherwise it will be ridden in it's current set up. The color is sweet, and when we ride - we'll match! The color issue was pure chance, and I was leery of the "poofta blue" when I first bought the Lenz, but it really grows on you I used to be Turner Homer but always admired the Ventana frames - it's cool to have one in the family. Happy Thanksgiving people!

    ...yah nice bike, i had that frame and loved it but i did what i always seem to do over the years since i had my first marble peak ventana. i traded it up to the labruja frame, needed more bike for north star. she's gonna have lots of fun on that bike and it's a good jumping bike also ;-)...ralph
    i need to ride more. building jumps takes to much time...my other hobby is kicking the crap outta my home built mook jong.

    I have made a few changes from the pictures - swapped the porky wheelset for some Mavic XM 819s, lighter rubber, an XT 2x9 crankset and a few other mods. All told the thing is right at 28lbs - not that it matters too much IMO, but there's a little less weight for her to lug around. Just waiting on a dry spell and some warmer weather to get out riding on it. Until then it's the snow bike and nordic skis.
