    Check out a recent post, six days ago, "Shameless bike porn", by Mtnpedeler, or something like that. He owns a Ventana, and lives close to the factory. Great pics, and I'm sure he has all the info you'll need.

    Great frame! We have three El Martillo CX frames in our family. Then again we have all Ventana bikes for that matter. $900 retail like mentioned above and you can go custom just about any way you choose: tubing, color, cable routing, etc. for a nominal fee. Call Ventana for the latest deals. Last I heard the Ventana web site is being revamped so here's the link for the cx frame:

    I'm probably going to build up an el martillo (have it built up, I mean). Here's a link to my thread if you're interested: 1st post: Q about Building up a cyclocross bike... Ventana, good parts, etc

    I've wanted one of these for a while. I spoke to Sherwood at Ventana this week about having the El Martillo built up as a SS. He suggested the new swinger dropouts they are doing on the El Comandante. Should be pretty versatile.
