    Im trying to decide between a Ventana El Cuervo and a Intense M3. both bikes suit my riding style, i like a fast, agile bike with great cornering abilities. I dont do big drops or hucking (maybe 8-10 ft top sometimes). wich one would you choose?? i haven´t test ride any of the 2, so i need some opinions ..

    Thanks in advance...

    Difficult....the M3 is a pure racebike so if that is what you want then go for it - the El Cuervo is a little more "freeride like" although it will be fast on DHs too...

    Isn't the El Cuervo a lot cheaper than the M3? I think the M3 is like $2800 and the El Cuervo is around $2100. In that case I'd save $700 and get the Ventana. I know a guy who rides one and he's fast and he likes it so it must be a good bike.
