    El guapo for Mini Clyde

    On my quest to find the perfect do it all budget bike and losing many an auction of ebay and nobody on pink bike returning my messages Im now pretty confident I can get a 2012 foes fxr or 2009 el guapo(really nice build) for the $1-1200 range. Im 225lbs and will be doing some aggressive riding with occasional 3-4' drops. Will the EG handle this ok?
    Also were the 09's make in us or taiwan? Any problems with this year I should know about? thanks

    09's were bombproof. The El Guapo has always been made in taiwan.

    Aesthetics wise EG beat the Foes hands down imo.
    Foes looks strong too except I don't like how the shock attaches to the rocker like some dingleberry. No expert but I will worry about stiffness and fast wear in that part of the frame with all the bolts close together.

    But then again coming from one who is riding 2 EGs-- I'm probably bias

    Yea the 2009+ are the most beautiful bikes make IMO. Hopefully in the next day or so I will have one on the way to my house!
