    Where did you SoCal / SD guys get your Ventana?

    I'm happy to buy online and build up myself, but also like to support the LBS. I am in San Diego and wondering if there are any good dealers. The info on ventanausa seems out-of-date since they still list places like Competitive Cyclist which no longer carries Ventana. Give me the 411, where should I go and why? TIA

    I got mine from Chad at Red Barn. Good price, good service. He's a LBS, just not close to me!

    ... and if we just ... Red Barn

    I'm in NY and ONLY purchase my bikes from Chad. Currently building #4, although not a Ventana...

    Excellent friendly knowledgable service at extremely fair prices...No need to even look elsewhere.

    I got mine from the Path. Had to drive up from San Diego as there were no local dealers at the time (2 years ago).

    I ordered mine through Ventana. If I had to, I would've drove down to the flatlands and picked up a Path version of the EC

    Guess I'll be calling Chad at Red Barn pretty soon here. First up will be a bike for the wife since I finally managed to get rid of her old clunker. My Chucho will come a bit later. Thanks everyone for the advice, much appreciated.

    I'll throw in another vote for Chad at Red Barn. I purchased my first Ventana from him and he is super easy to deal with and his prices were the best I could find.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.
