Arrived this morning and just finished building it !

Thanks to Alan @ Riverside for his passion and patience and of course Ventana for such a lovely frame - hope you all approve of the build...

Can't wait to hit the trails tomorrow !

She's a real looker...........gotta love those luscious Ventana colours. What's your build? I'm still building mine....waiting on some 3.6 mm ferrells :rolleyes:

I just noticed you set your brakes up moto-style.....nice touch. I recently switched my bikes over to moto-style......it feels much more normal being a Super Moto rider

How much does it weigh?

Those bars look higher than the seat. The comfort cruise seat position?

Bar position.

Justa,

After just a couple of rides I found that having the bar height slightly lower than the saddle really brings the bike into balance. At first it felt like the front end was wandering on steeper climbs and tended to wash on fast, flat turns. Lowering the bars has placed more weight on the front; the bike handles better and the front wheel is more planted now.
