And you can replace the decals with ease. If you base your entire experience on a set of decals then you should be really pissed off when you mash the rear derailleur on a rock or case a jump putting a flat spot on your rear wheel. It's a flucking decal call Ventana a buy a dozen of them.
No, 29ers are oversold......you drank the cool aid :nono: Buying a bike on subjective opinions posted on mtbr.com or what you read in mtn bike action is moronic and you have no one else to blame but yourself. Demo a bike before you blindly lay down the cash.
Toe rub is one of the bad things that happen to 29ers below a certain frame size......from what I have seen it is what it is....short people have no reason to ride 29ers
What do you mean by a "soft top tube"? Because I get a HARD center tube when I'm riding my Ciclon with that big massive 2" downtube........maybe you need Viagra to get your top tube hard.....
Customer service on isle 29 we have an unhappy customer. Then sell your POS 2007 El Rey and buy a complete 29er.....but please stop beetching on the internet….get over it already.
That might be a character flaw not any fault of Ventana......:madmax: :madmax:
Then I guess you will not like brands like Santa Cruz, Turner, Titus and others.......that powder coat first then apply decals. I see it as an option because I can remove the decals and then reapply them as needed. I think you will find it's not a big issue.
