    Smile El Guapo pics - "SuMoLite" photos

    After fiddling with the busted camera, I got it to snap a few pics. The camer's screen doesn't work, so this is the best I could do.

    Note: pictured is a tiny 2.0 tire that I "borrowed" from the little lady's ML. Interesting ride... So far I've ridden the bike with 2.5 DH tires, 2.3 "AM" tires, and a 2.0 XC tire. I can see where this is going: Two wheelsets, maybe three...

    Yeah, I'm very pleased!

    Originally I thought the 66 would be too big for this bike, but I just can't imagine the frame with a smaller fork! An All Mountain, for example, would look so skinny! I guess it's probably better matched to the El Guapo as this is supposed to be an AM frame, not a FR deal, but as for looks... too skinny.

    Not IMO.

    Mabye it's all the Homer's with their RFX's all running 66's and the like, but for "my idea" of a bike like "my idea" of an EG is, a 66 is super perfect.

    Yup, I'm with you on this one BA. I'd keep the 66sl on the Guapoo and find a 07 66rc2x on closeout for the SuMo.

    I think if you put an All Mountain on an El G, the spindley little stanchions would crack under pressure and most likely catch on fire.

    I'm not "sure" but I think I heard that if you were to attempt to plug a 32mm stanchion fork into an EG it would electrocute itself....


    and than possibly catch on fire?

    that bike is HOT! The machined rodker and cranks set the black off sooooo good. The only thing I dislike is the cable routing. It seems like there is no easy way to run them on the Guap.

    As much as I must say the bike is pretty cool, and a worth successor to my Quasi (NOT looking for a replacement though), I gotta say I hate the "guitar" cable routing stubs. I'd have to have them cut off or something. Grrr.

    Pretty machine though.

    Would look great with a fork what has white lowers though.

    Whoa Nellie!

    I did not intend to imply that I was even considering swapping out the 66SL!!! No way! I LUV this fork, and it's perfect on this bike! I was considering an AM SL on a "conceptual level" before I actually got my hands on the frame, but now, un ah, nada, nicht, nine, nyet, ney, NO WAY! The only way you'll get my 66SL off my Guapo is to pry it from my cold, dead hands!
