Ventana Mountain Bike Frames and Complete Bikes


2011 Ventana El Ciclon asymmetric chainstays Ventana mountain bike frames are beautifully engineered and have a solid grasp on a certain tradition that is mountain biking. In July of 2011 the entire line of Ventana frames is changing radically. The tried and true four bar linkage remains, but new Ventana frames will be lighter, possess new geometries, paint colors, asymmetrical chainstays and slim newly redesigned rockers and shock stays. New features include BB30 press-in bottom brackets, tapered headttubes, internal cable routing, box section stays, and curved and formed tubing. This is a watershed year, so stay tuned as we update our Ventana listings with photographs and specifications.

Ventana has a cult status that is similar to the cult of steel, but Ventana has perfected handmade production of aluminum, the perfect material for full suspension mountain bike construction. Here is the art of fish scale welds and advanced structural engineering. Add Ventana's personal and consistent customer service to our knowledge of their product, and relax. We will get you onto the bicycle that suits your needs with tested components that are state-of-the-art.

The Ventana four-bar linkage system is not a marketing slogan, it is a proven design. Over the years it has incorporated innovations we helped to promote and evaluate through our use (guide bikes and rentals at Dreamride are mostly Ventana-made) and sale of Ventana-built frames over the past two decades. Our own Dreamride F-Series bikes were founded and are still based on Ventana engineering and were the original inspiration for the Ventana El Chucho 69er. We have been hammering away on these bikes in Moab for a very long time and know them like we know the trails. Anyone who builds bikes knows that if you are really looking for the very best mountain bike for ANY money, you will not find a more refined, reliable and efficient frame than a Ventana.

*All Ventana MSRP frame-only sales include free UPS shipping costs in the 48 states.

Brad Barker and son with matching Jeep and Ventana
     Brad and his son have purchased three bikes from Dreamride. All three of were based on Ventana-made frames. Returning time and again to purchase a new bike is a great testimonial in itself, but Brad showed up recently with a newly customized Jeep, painted to match his custom Dreamride-built Ventana El Saltamontes bike.

Ventanas on the Big Island of Hawaii

We've been living with Ventana bicycles for many, many years, working with them, riding them, renting them, selling them, playing with them, experimenting with them, improving on them, putting our logos on bikes made by these same people and loving every minute. When we look back on the past decade we see that Ventana has played a great part in vacation/bike purchase packages. Why? Because we can save you enough money on these high end guided vacations to pay for the bike. Ventanas are certainly not cheap, but they are definitely the best frame value in the industry, giving you features and construction that are tops in this price range while competing on a par with much higher priced mass produced mountain bikes. Don't spend your money paying for Trek's or Specialized's marketing campaigns that push carbon fiber frames that don't last and run-of-the-mill parts that are uninspired, when you can get a handmade product backed by real people in the real world. MADE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! NO BULLSHIT! NO LIES! NO PROBLEMS!

The Family Component
Happy clients happen here. A Ventana mountain bike makes a fine gift for a graduating son or a cycle-obsessed spouse. Get one for yourself, first, then call to set up a vacation for you and your son, daughter, wife or significant other. Most of Dreamride's Ventana sales over the years have had a family component, and more clients than not combine their Ventana purchase with a Dreamride-guided Moab or Hawaii vacation. Dreamride is not only a bicycle studio in the Mecca of the sport, we are famous for our environmentally-focused CYCLING VACATIONS catering to the smallest parties of one to four. 75% of our clients are solos or couples--married, long-time partners, gay or straight, or a solo parent with a son or daughter. Include the purchase of a custom Ventana mountain bike for the double dose of cherished memories and state-of-the-art machinery.

Fitting Sessions in Moab


There is a Serotta Size Cycle in our Moab studio. We use it to figure, with your input, a correct position for a specific bike model, road or mountain. This position produces numbers. The Size Cycle can be set up to mock a stock frame size and give you a chance to see how it feels. You must pay in advance to reserve a specific date and time for fitting. If you are getting a mock-up, the Fit Cycle will be set-up to specs before the appointment. If you buy a bike or a frame from us, any fitting is included in the price (or refunded at the time purchase, if you got the fitting prior to the order).

$200 ~ basic fit session for mountain or road
$300 ~ complete fitting for mountain AND road
$100 ~ stock frame size mock-up (road or mountain)
$150 ~ two frame size mock-ups (road and/or mountain).
