    A very pretty Man

    So the Guap is all built up and had its first ride.

    First impressions are good, now i just need to find a trail up here that is more gnarly and give the Guap a real test

    I was a little worried that the gold would now go good with the mango hubs. But to my surprise, they look awesome! Pictures dont really give it justice, but the bike is sick.

    Build:

    Medium El G
    Fork: Marzocchi AM1 SL
    Wheelset: Chris King on camo SOS rims
    Crank: Saint (overkill i know, but its what i had)
    Rear Der. XT
    Cassette: XT
    Stem: Thomson
    Bar: Answer Pro Taper
    Brakes: Avid BB7 (Love the mechanicals)
    Etc.

    This is by far the nicest bike i have owned. Cant wait to get more time in the saddle and enjoy my ride

    Gold!

    Sweet ride DD - enjoy! I really like how the massive head tube dwarfs the Chris King's bulbousness.

    I don't think you should be calling her a pretty man, though. After seeing the gold in person I started referring to mine as "La Guapa".

    I found a killer deal on the Guap and hurry and sold my IH. The riding up here isnt nearly gnar enough to have a 7 inch hog.
