    2008 cracked El Rey

    I was hearing an unusual creak yesterday and noticed the a crack all the way around the seat tube just under the suspension mount. Time for a new frame.

    I am a ventana fan and am considering a new el rey, just wondering if they had made significant changes since 08.

    you people are in the know, so let me know what you think.

    the most significant change would be the overall frame design w/ the changed main pivot placement, affecting the pedal input. the current Ray & yours are quite different. w/ the 1/3 off tradein plan, even though Sherwood could fix it, you might as well go for the new one, especially since you like it as much as you do

    the el rey is on the wall in case I decide to trade it in later...built a kona process 111 with a 1 x 11. Wow. been on a ventana in one shape or another for 20 years, and feel foolish for being blind to other brands.
