El Guapo 2k full build
Just came across this on the on one site http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/FBTITEGV1Posted 5 years ago
Apologies if this has already been done but i had a search and couldn’t find anything. I’m not in the market for a new bike but if i was after a full build i find this to be incredible value – ccdb air, lyrik, reverb, sram x9 etc for 2k! Obviously corners have been cut on bars, stem, wheels but the bulk of the build is pretty decent.
That is all 🙂

Didn’t some folk on here have issues fitting a chain guide Brant? I might be wrong. 31Ibs isn’t too bad weight-wise either.Posted 5 years ago
Looks good though, if I was looking at another 6″ bike this would be high up the list with the Mega.
Edit: I see it comes with a guide fitted. Can’t believe how good the price is!johnikgriffSubscriber
I had one of these when they first came out, I paid not much less than that for just the frame and it came with an RP23 not CCDB air 🙁
Only draw back I found was it blowing through the mid travel with the RP23, but when I changed it to DHX5 Coil it was great. So CCDB should have sorted that.Posted 5 years agosuperfliMember

You can fix the RP23 blowing through its travel with a shim made out of a bit of plastic. http://forums.mtbr.com/turner/dw-5-spot-rp23-mod-503070.htmlwreckerMember

£400 odd more gets a LOT more bike.
i have an EG and love the ride overall, sure it has issues but what doesn’t.. i listed some things i don’t like here so you can see if any of these will bother you:
overall, lovely ride, that wicked looks value too and a few (only a few) others in this class. i did a frame only build starting at £540.Posted 5 years ago

What’s their customer service like ❓
Also as it’s loaded with ‘BOS’ gear – any contemplative buyer should also see – http://www.r53engineering.com/index.php/products/bos-suspensionPosted 5 years ago
haha so my brother took one ride on my EG and wants a new MTB.. can anyone suggest something that rides something like an EG, but costs about.. £500 less? (i.e. £1200-1600). doesn’t need as much travel, simple maintenance (coil fork?, not adjustable seatpost, no fancy parts) might be good too.. i dunno this might well be a silly question since the £2k EG is already a great deal yes. i don’t look at full builds normally plus it’s end of 2012 season so..
similar sizing and geo to a medium EG basically.
firs thing i checked was thisPosted 5 years ago
do it please brant, you might have another customer! and as his will get nicked, a repeat customer 🙄
edit: added please. 🙂Posted 5 years ago
edit2: and slightly lighter wheels please? he’s even skinnier than me. er wheel options would be cool not sure how difficult this is logistically.
