I'm seriously considering buying an 06 Chaparral but have no experience on one. My buddy rides a Ventana La Bruja which I love but may want the extra inch of travel and burlyness of the Chappy for my intended use. Anybody have one and want to do a ride and switch bikes for a small part of it? Just enough to get a general feel. I"m currently on a size small Titus QuasiMoto 1.5 which is nice, but the geometry is still a little too xc for me. I ride all over the tri-state. Let me know. thanks.
