Cycle Monkey specializes in custom builds using the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 internal gear hubs and Gates Carbon Drive belts.

We worked with Ventana Mountain Bikes USA to create a new plus-sized trail hardtail called Wolfram. Available with 27.5″+ or 29″+ wheels, the geometry follows current trends of longer top tubes for use with shorter stems, slack head angle for better stability on technical terrain, and short chain stays for a more playful feel and to make picking your way through obstacles easier. The oversized plus tires provide amazing traction and give the back end a little squish. We like to call it an all mountain hardtail.  Some might call it an enduro hardtail.  One of our friends would call it a Funduro. Whatever you call it, it is a very capable bike that is tons of fun to ride.

Completely manufactured in-house at Ventana’s factory in Northern California, the Cycle Monkey editions of the Wolfram 27. 5+ and 29+ feature dedicated cable routing for the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 and stealth dropper seatposts and are belt drive compatible through Ventana’s clever adjustable dropout system for the most maintenance-free trail bike drivetrain available.
