Ventana El Rey

$3000 USD
2014 Ventana El Rey complete bike. Super fun bike that was used as a photo sample. This is a trail bike offering 100mm of front and rear travel. The frame was ridden only 5 times, but the build kit is from a 2012 El Rey that was also only ridden for a handful of photo shoots. The two exceptions are 2014 EA 70 Wide flat bars and a 2014 X0 clutch rear derailleur. The rest of the components--suspension, drive train, etc, are 2013 vintage. Geometry: go to for a complete geometry break down. Build Kit: Ventana El Rey Frame--internal cable routing for the brakes and shifters for a nice clean look. Fox RP23--pre CTD silliness Fox F29 100 mm RC2 Fit Damper fork with 15mm QR thru axle and lock out Chris King headset Chris King PF BB SRAM X0 2 x 10 Drive train--shifters, rear d, front derailleur with Clutch rear D, X0 Carbon 175 2 x 10 cranks with 26/39 rings. Avid Elixir CR brakes with 180 front and 160 rear rotors Easton Haven 30.9 Seat post Easton EA Wide bars (720mm) Easton Haven 70mm stem Easton Haven 2012 Wheels Schwalbe Nobby Nic Tires set up as tubeless Easton Grips WTB Valcon saddle Bike was definitely used, but never abused other than a digger taken on the last shoot that tore up the nose of the saddle a bit and added a few scuff marks to the drive train side seat stay (see photos). Yes, there's some dirt in the cassette, but she's clean otherwise. The color is called Grinch Green and it's got some pop when it's in the sun (there's some metallic flake in the powder coating). The price is pretty firm--The bike frame saw only 5 rides, and the components were ridden maybe a dozen times. New the frame retails for $2200 USD, add in the King components, etc and I feel $3k USD is a reasonable asking price. I will sell frame only plus BB and headset for $1650 USD If I'm shipping the bike, I'll be adding on $100 USD for professional pack job, insurance, and shipping expense ($150 USD for shipping to Hawaii and AK). Shipping within the USA only unless you are willing to pay the additional expense of shipping to your country. Use my zip code--97031--and a bike box measuring 13" x 30" x 54" (34cm x 76cm x 137cm) to calculate that expense. Local pick up in Hood River, OR pays cash; shipping anywhere means paypal, and paypal only. No checks, no credit cards, no trades. Paypal or cash only.

Riding a trainer in the shade to warm up is more like it.

DH Photo Epic - Sea Otter 2015
I was in the wrong place to get that shot, epic78, as was Margus. To tell the "story" of a race means moving around the track during the race and planning on where to be to get the shots. We have a start sheet and make a plan accordingly. If we just stay in one spot to shoot the entire event, it'd be a pretty dull post.

One question, mikelevy: warranty on the XTRs vs the XTs?
