    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...

    That's a tough call. I checked out both bikes, and they're both really nice. However, the M3 I spun around felt really, really plush. It had that feel of endless travel, in my opinion. Personally, I would go with the M3.

    I have sat on both and they both feel reelly plush, the el cuervo is heavier but will last longer and is also less exspensive. the el cuervo is the better deal, m3 is sexier though and you have color options.

    I would get the el cuervo with a dhx and spend the money I saved on beer. a lot of beer.

    #1 - Parking lot tests are never conclusive

    #2 - What makes you think the El Cuervo will last longer?

    Test riding both bikes wouldn't be a bad place to start...

    As an Intense owner i find what you listed above lacking. Very pretty but still lacking in those departments.

    The El Cuervo while not as shiny to look at really seems to be way to go.

    I must admit that i have only checked them out in a limited way but they both seem to be top notch.
