    New build, old Ventana. 650b content too.

    Just finished the new, to me, SS. Rides ridiculously well.

    Ventana El Toro, early 2000's maybe
    650b Stans
    Pacenti Quasi-Moto rear, Neo front
    Paul hubs
    Fizik
    Thomson stem and post
    Soma Clarence
    Hayes Stroker
    Stylo's
    Boone ring
    White Bro's

    Reading about the Mary's has me a little concerned as the Soma's are very close in style(and seemingly build). Any thing I should be concerned about with them? Super comfortable for me, similar to the Jones bar I previously had.

    What fork is that? No problem with any rubbing with the 650b up front?

    looks really nice.

    what's got you concerned about the Mary's (or, Soma's, in your case)?

    I haven't really ridden them much, but I set my wife up on Mary's and she is pleased as can be.

    MMcG, fork is an R7 I rebuilt using Enduro seals. Def had some issues with the Neo and clearance, solved with a little ghetto fix until the tread wears a bit. The fix may send me over the bars one day, so I'd rather not be specific.

    Grundy, read a couple statements about how the Mary's "break". Can't confirm validity or if the "breaks" fall within the norm for all bars. Being that the Clarence and the Mary look near identical, just asking if anyone has seen Clarence failures.
