    Ventana Delivers!

    A day early even. Got to love it when even the original delivery date was more than ok, but then the glistening brand new hot rod. Only problem....now I've got to bust rump to build the wheels and get this bad boy ready for the customer so he can give it a solid Saturday thrashing. Going to be a busy Friday! Of course I've got to get my Rockville Romp on first though, dirt too good to pass up right now.

    Sneak Peak.

    Well, Ventana delivers, but the Boys in Brown failed!! Had a bunch of parts overnighted from QBP and three of the four boxes arrived. Of course hubs and rims were in missing box, so didn't even bother starting the build. :-(

    Well, she's finally ready. Finally received all the parts on Tuesday and went to work building the wheels and hanging parts. Finished her up this afternoon. Customer and I are going to go out and hit the rocky trails first thing Thursday morning. Say goodbye to the pretty sparkled white bike!

    Dropper post cable routing

    I am curious, how did you run the dropper post cable under the top tube....?
    Is it white tape? Looks very clean....

    Saved a few bucks and left the dropper post cable guides off the frame. Customer had not used one before, and was reluctant to permanently modify his frame for something he didn't know for sure he'd run with all the time.

    So yeah, it's a white vinyl tape. Ran a small white zip-tie on the end nearest the seat tube to keep the tape in place. Another small zip-tie connecting the dropper cable to the brake cable keeps it all clean looking and kept in place.


    Good eye.
