- Show me your EL Guapos please
Beuaty is in the eye of the beholder:0 Got to say I am really enjoying mine. Broke my 07 epic and was looking for something that can take anything I could do to it and the handsome seemed to fit the bill, in my price range. Had a sub 5 in 2003-2008 which was getting a bit old.Posted 4 years agokudos100Member
No pics but I got rid of mine for a pitch. Much much better bike in every way. I just couldn’t stand the El Crappo it was horrible and so ugly.
That is funny, I ended up doing the same thing! Didn’t like the way it rode, but I could never put my finger on it. Suspension was good though.
Built the pitch up after I got a deal that was too good to be true. Love it, best bike i’ve ever ridden. Only thing I would change is to have a bolt through rear axle.Posted 4 years ago
Ironically, Rob has just ditched his Pitch for the Guapo.
Shoulda got an Enduro Rob 😉
Pisstaking aside, I don’t mind the look of the El Guapo – just hope it rides ok.
By the way Rob – I’m back out, had my first ride last Thursday.

This my V3 I built this year I’ve changed quite a lot since then and will be changing a lot more.
My thoughts on this bike are gripy climber, hard work in slow twisty bits, absolutely planted in fast flowy parts, bit of a monster on fast fast descents gives you plenty of confidence.
This will be my setup by new year

I guess some folk on here feel it’s more important for a bike to look good riding around the trail centre car park than how it’s actually rides!
I have a v2 with a pushed dhx ti coil
Marzocchi 55 rc3 ti evo
Flows on Hadley hubs, w/10mm bolt thru
Hans dampf front rubber queen rear
1×9 short cage xo rear mech
Elixir cr brakes
Chromag bars and stem
And a custom carbon bb and downtube protector!
