    TerreMoFo et al

    What's a girl to do when they can't ride on the weekend......they buy and/or build stuff up

    Busy few days.......

    * took apart GT Xizang yesterday as it will be replaced.....new bike ordered Thursday

    * Ventana still Comandante at shop getting a new headset (since I dont dare even buy tools to be able to do that)

    * El Rey got a face lift with new M4 brakes front and rear. Since I got the bike 3 months ago have updated saddle, bashguard for big ring, replaced bars, replaced brakes, and today shifter cables

    * And of course the new TerreMoFo finished builiding up today....I love weekends!


    Some random pics of El Rey in its FINAL form with above-mentioned parts update from its original form 3 months ago
    * Gamut Bash
    * FSA Gravity Carbon bars
    * Selle Italia SLR XC saddle
    * M4 brakes
    * Clark stainless steel shifter cables









    TerreMoFo Build




    And I cant forgot my (SS) roots








    And I call this one "I27" (taken last night before moto finished)

    Wow, Fo you officially have the sickest stable of bikes ever. I am jealous. Now where was it that you lived again? Oh, and I'll also need to know where you hide your spare key.
    IT'S NOT THE FALL THAT HURTS. IT'S WHEN YOU HIT THE GROUND.

    Well, I didn’t get a chance to “pre-fondle” the Moto, as we had planned, but despite that, I’m still impressed! Way nice! I like the “SS” cap on the stem. Nice touch.

    Let me know if you want me to come over and help you install that extra set of bike hangers in the rafters of your garage. You’re going to need some place “permanent” for that thing to live.

    We need to do a HIP / VIP here in the SoCal?

    The MoFo needs a gravity dropper

    When can we expect to see El Bastardo added to your lineup?

    That thar is a nice stable o' bikes.

    Especially the El Rey. Perfect except for the rather pedestrian (for you) cranks. Nothing wrong with them, and I have at least one set on my SS. Just don't match the wow factor of the rest of the bikes.

    All your bikes need gravity droppers

    I can hear you about the weather. I apparently only ride rigid SS anymore since it is the only thing that survives the mud.

    Fo, how do like the El Terre compared to the RFX it replaced? I ride an 06' RFX and pretty satisfied with it as my one, do all bike, but lI'm liking the geo' of the El Terre a little better on paper, just wandering how the ride differs from an RFX.

    Ride On!

    close.....the replacement of the GT (which is fully rigid) will indeed be a fully rigid bike, but a single speed. Nothing exotic but a bike from one of my other favorite companies (On One). Not a favorite in the same way Ventana IS my favorite, but I think the owner is a cool dude and their value is outstanding and the listen to customers

    yeah.....while "pedestrian" they work fine and in fact, the Hones are nothing exotic but darn if they dont work well. i dont see replacing the cranks to be honest....but we will see...

    We'll just ignore that the average age of my frames is 4 years old!

    Fo, Saweet build out! But I don't know if I should be proud or scared that we run the same brakes, same bash guard and shifters! Great minds think alike or have I gone FoGhey?

    AAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    haha...CCDBs are far too homer approved nowadays...

    I have a felling this shock will be more than enough. It can run REAL low PSI without fear of bottoming out (El Beastro help me out here.....i am just going by what you told me)

    Turned out better than I would have thought with the red.

    That picture of all 3 next to each other makes me jealous...you suck.

    Great builds...now you just have to find a way to make them dirty that doesn't include dust.

    Fo,you da man.

    How's does it compare to the RFFlex? HUH, how's freedom compared to 3 to 5 in state prison. Much like prison the RFFlex blows.No GD seatpost those things are SOOOOO GHEY!!(ask any Homer)Truth be told that thing would just be to sick for words with a CCDB(Sorry)And trust me the CCDB was WAY cool before those loser's on Turner's put their seal of approval on it,so don't let those clowns keep you from getting one.As much as I wish you were on a Nicolai or a Knolly you sure have made the Ventana boys VERY proud (and for very good reason) Ventana has it all over Turner,always has, always will.Very,Very,nice stable Foshiz,but than I don't need to tell you that. CF...
