Here is my new El Guapo!
Almost all components came from my cr-mo On-one 456SS. Its rather snowy here now, so i cant test it properly. However ive made several rides in the nearest forest trails. This frame is rather smooth, no wallowing at all. Very well controlled on the high speeds, easily eats short 45 degree uphills, really fun to ride!
Even though the BB is rather low, I almost never hit obstacles with my bashguard.
To sum up, perfect bike for my style or riding. Its capable of doing full day long 150+ kilometers rides, and also big air jumps with accurate landings. But I won't try any dirt jump tricks or some crazy downhill races on this frame.
