You want to ride in every condition—sand, snow, mud, muck, and everything in between. Fat tires are a great start, but you also need a drivetrain that can stand up to the elements for a truly low-maintenance, all-season shred sled.
Ventana's El Gordo frame is American-made, and our models are specifically designed for Rohloff's SPEEDHUB 500/14 internal gear hub and compatible with Gates Carbon drive. With a belt and internal gear hub, your fat bike will be as low-maintenance as a bike can get. Rolloff's SPEEDHUB features a wider gear range than SRAM's Eagle system, without the anxiety and extra maintenance that comes with running a derailleur in harrowing conditions. They can also be set up singlespeed for those desiring ultimate simplicity.
This orange colorway pops on even the dimmest winter days. Take advantage of lower pricing on this lightly-used medium frame from our demo fleet, or explore our new frames if you're looking for another color. We can also build up complete bikes and offer an electric-assist option—so don't hesitate to reach out with build inquiries.
