I just finished building a small El Cuervo for my wife. This is her own first DH bike, so far she has either ridden her or my trail bike (Turner 5 Spot, Banshee Spitfire) or rented. She is psyched to be finally on her own rig!
Frame: small Ventana El Cuervo with Elka Stage 5 shock
Fork: 2010 Boxxer WC
Headset: Cane Creek 110
Controls: Raceface Atlas AM bar, SRAM X9 shifter and rear derailleur
Brakes: Formula K24 with 203mm rotors
Wheels: DT EX500 on Hope Pro II with Stan's tubeless kit
Tires: 2.5 Maxxis Minion DHF UST
Cranks: Gravity Light
Chainguide: MRP G2
Pedals: Crank Brothers 50/50XX
Total weight: 39.5 lbs
It'll be a long Winter waiting for the lifts to open again!
And here is a little time-lapse photography video I put together during the build:
