Ventana El Fuego 2002 Full Suspension

5/5 (1 Reviews)
Weight : 2.27 kg

Product Description

El Fuego, our no-nonsense, super light, modest travel, cross country racing frameset has been made even better for 2002. Due to our customer feedback, we have redesigned El Fuego to incorporate sealed bearings at all pivots, vertically slotted dropouts with replaceable derailleur hanger, and an increase in travel to 3.0 inches. Of course, El Fuego still retains our legendary championship construction, "Electric Sex" welds, and luscious powder coat finish.
And with its titanium pivot option, it tips the scales on the light side of 5 pounds! We've also incorporated our new one-key, field serviceable, main pivot technology for trouble free operation and owner friendly serviceability.

Strengths:    Lightweight,Nimble and easy to ride. Not much getting used to. Jump on and go. Plush suspension makes for good handling
climbing or descending. Oh yeah, they have a pretty decent selection of colors.

Weaknesses:    The frame is not the least expensive on the market.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike. The most fun I've had since they invented the wheel. This really is a good working bike. It's been really easy getting used to. I look forward to riding it every chance I get. It inspires confidence.

'02 El Fuego - Bearing Upgrade?

I have a 2002 El Fuego, still holding up great. Just had all my bushings (yes all) replaced. Cost about $70 which seems quite reasonable. By the look of it, the main pivot should be upgradeable to bearing. I asked Ventena about this but they did not reply. Any thoughts?Read More »
