I felt the need to big this thing up... It's incredible!
El guapo v2 frame
Fox 36 rc2 fit
Cane creek double barrel
Xt drivetrain with clutch mech, 1x10 with wc fat/thin 32 tooth chainring.
Spank 75mm stem
Flows on superstar hubs.
I've replaced my well specc'd (same components) santacruz blur lt with it, and this thing is better up and down!
I was expecting it to decend well and it doesn't diassapoint. Set personal records all the way round llandegla black on the first ride and jumped into the top 500 ish on most decents on strava. But the more important thing is how much fun it is! Fast and stable without being Boring and ironing everything out. Turns very quick.
The cane creek double barrel is especially good! But its the way it climbs that I wasn't necessarily expecting. I ran 2x10 on the blur, and run 1x10 32 tooth front on this, I was worried I wasn't fit enough... Now I'm thinking of changing to 34/36 front. So much traction and the front is planted!
I can't speak highly enough of it, don't let the relatively low price, and relatively unknown brand put you off, I can't think of much I'd want to swap it for! Plus... Well look at it!
