Spangler on the loose...

In exciting news Will Kelton, NZs newest Ventana owner has just completed an amazing bike build around the shiny Ventana El Fuego frame. Coming in at a svelte 4.5lbs, and in a mirror-like ball burnished finish, this El Fuego is a showcase of Ventana's attention to detail. With 3.5" of rear travel and race honed geometry, Will chose the frame for its sharp handling and of course the shiny finish!
Will was also the first customer to build the frame up up with components from Mountain Pedaler NZ's newest supplier; WH Worralls. This allowed Will to spec the latest SRAM X9 drivetrain, Juicy brakes, Truvativ cranks and cockpit and Continental tires.
First ride on this sub 24lb build, and Will reports that the bike handles his favourite rocky descents with aplomb, mastering the tricky Captain Thomas descent without a whimper! Easily confused for a low flying fighter jet, Will and his new Ventana (aptly named 'Spangler') will be shredding the hills till the cows come home.

Mountain Pedaler out...
