Hello all,

Just thought I would put up a post to show our new his and her’s El Ciclon’s. We have had them for a couple of weeks and some good rides thus far and love the bikes. Being our first Ventana’s, I have to say the bikes perform better than expected and we are completely satisfied with them.

My thanks to Larry Wallach, Sid’s Bikes NYC, for his time and assistance with planning the builds and delivering a polished finished product. I enjoyed the process almost as much as the end results. Thanks to his guys Mickey and Darius for getting the quality builds done so fast. Great people, great service.

My special thanks to Teresa and Sherwood for always taking the time for my calls and emails allowing me full confidence in frame choice and design. A pleasure dealing with them. And yes, the frames are beautiful.

His:
17 inch El Ciclon SuperDust
Fox Float, RP23, QB
XTR Shadow RD, XT FD, XT shifters, XT cranks

The bikes look great! Both of them, but I was especially interested in the picture of your wife's - I've never seen a Ventana with a top tube bent like that for extra clearance. I've had problems getting a bike to fit my wife (she's 5'2"); her Santa Cruz Juliana has a similar top tube. How tall is your wife?

Thanks for all the kind replies. Just got back from a ride, bikes are great. I figured her bike would get all the attention.

I can't wait..

I have my 17 inch super dust on order and can't wait. I think I have looked at this post at least a dozen times already to look at these sexy bikes. My wife keeps busting me looking at bike porn. :smilewinkgrin:

Enjoy those new rides! They are sweet!
