Ventana El Padrino 29er - Dreamride MRC+ build Ventana El Padrino
Dreamride SuperEgo 9er Build

Price includes frame, all parts, labor, and Serfas flight case. No tax out of Utah.

El Padrino is the best value in a truly fine handmade aluminum 9er frame, and that is why we have chosen a suitable build for it and offer it as a complete bike. The SuperEgo component group chosen for this frame reflects Dreamride's 29er parts-testing in Moab. We don't generally choose aluminum hardtails to grace with Dreamride builds, but this one works for us.

The Padrino SuperEgo can race, haul ass on fire roads, cut up tight singletrack and eat dirt roads alive. The bike pictured is the smallest configuration we could manage, suiting a 5'6" rider at an absolute minimum. We may deviate from stock parts to get just the right fit, a better price and suitable geometry for you, personally.

happy Ventana client
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).
