Well, I find myself at Chicago Midway Airport with some time to kill, so here goes;
I have a 2009-ish El Terremoto. Lately, I have gotten the itch to do something else, not completely sold on 650b after riding one, I think I will stick with 26" wheels for a while longer. I also have some high end parts on my Terremoto, and I want to keep them around a while longer too (CCDBA, SIXC carbon cranks, Hope Tech X2's, Dave's Speed Dream wheels, etc.). Naturally, I am thinking about the Ventana trade-in program, but the closest I could get to that bike is a Ciclon. Easy-peasy, for the most part my stuff will swap right over. But, the more I think about it, the reason I want to change is because I want a decent dropper post so I need a bigger ST, as well as cable guides and a fresh coat of paint. Otherwise I love my bike, the 160 travel, my -1 degree works HS.
I have asked Teresa for a quote on the refurb program, and I already have my information on the Ciclon trade-in. Just curious, for those of you that still actually come to this forum, WWYD?
I got the pass from the wifey to get a new bike of my choosing, but damn for a high end aluminum build its 5k, or for that money you can get a low-end carbon build. I just have a problem with that, prices are rising so fast and it seems the kit quality isn't rising with it. The way I see it is I already have a high end aluminum build and spending a couple g's to spruce it up is a better and more fulfilling alternative...
