    El Guapo competition?

    Hey guys, not to fan the flames but I thought you might find this interesting- the 2007 devinci Hectik. I took the pictures up at crankworks, looks a lot like the El Guapo. Should be a nice bike!

    That 6 inch bike slot is going to get jam packed for sure................ When you get down to it, there is so much choice. A feast really.............Those were some nice looking frames FM.

    FM, be a scholar and throw your name on the list to confirm for the Titus ride, you will see the stickey up top.... All good

    Sweet bike too... dang, that will be a very competed segment indeed.

    You know... "if you have less than 6" of travel, you can't ride"

    Well... I'm positive you deserve any of the 6" the El Guapo can give out

    note that FSR type Devinci's are not allowed in the US as of last time I checked (specialized patent legal mumbojumbo). You get a turner/kona version here so not really the same thing at all. The only way to get an FSR one is to pick one up next time you are in Canada.

    I'd think it'd be far cheaper for them to pay the $15 per bike to license it from Specialized than to make the production line for a completely different rear end for the bike. Interesting...

    I don't think that's really the problem. While Specialized does allow some manufacturers to make HL bikes and pay a licensing fee I don't think this is a general offer open to everyone. It seems to me they only license their patent to high-end low volume manufacturers while not allowing their direct competitors the same option.
