    Terremoto vs Ellsworth Moment

    Anyone rode both?
    I am looking at getting a new bike and the Ventana Terremoto is at the top of the list right now. The only problem is i had a Moment for a couple of months and i was less impressed by the suspension, felt like it would blow through first part of travel then get realy stiff at the end nowhere near as plush as a Nomad or even a Heckler. So I am worried that because of the simularities between the frames - four bar rocker- the suspension would feel close to the same. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    I've ridden both - completely different.

    Terremoto rides deeper in its travel & feels "plusher." It's also significantly stiffer. Moment pedals better. I could says lots about my personal feeling regarding the Ellsworth company but will exercise self-restraint and just say that the folks at Ventana are top notch.
