We’ve been waiting for this one for a long time! Finally, Ventana has created their version of the Phat tandem – the El Gran Jefe (The Big Boss). This frame is designed to accommodate up to 26 x 5.0″ tires on 80mm rims, with a tapered (44/56mm) head tube. Standard rear dropout spacing is 170mm, with optional 177x12mm and 197x12mm available.
