Ventana X-5 and El Ciclon Frames

The X-framed X-5 and standard front triangle El Ciclon share category and pricing. If you are a small rider and need more standover or you are a big boy wanting a much more solid front section, the X-5 is the choice. If want lighter weight and a more traditional look, go for the El Ciclon. Both have sport geometry and can handle a wide range of trails.

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).
