*Reply by FoShizzle when I told him how awesome my new El Comandante rides.
This is the first new hardtail that I've owned since about 1995, and it's awesome. I built it up for doing fast XC riding with a local club and it delivers in spades.
It's built up mostly out of parts that I had lying about from a build I aborted when somebody made me too good of an offer on a Niner MCR frame. When I finally decided to get serious about a hardtail again, I made a call to Teresa, and after a couple of conversations to work out a few details and a little tiger blood in the powdercoat, I ended up with my El Paulmandante Ultimate.
I'll post the specs. on the setup thread.
