    Here it is. El Santo’s ready to wrestle.

    Just finished it up and all I need now is to tune it and work the little bugs out. One thing I have to do is shorten that front brake line when I get a chance. First thing’s first, I have to get out on the trail! Turned out just how I’d hoped (better actually) and I LOVE the feel. Came in under 26lbs to boot: that was a nice surprise.

    Love the red spider on the SRAM cassettes. Goes great with this frame color. When is Shimano going to follow suit?

    God I can't wait to get this thing dirty.

    Love the looks of the El Santo and you have a great build. Is that a LG or XL? 26" wheels on LG or XL frames just look a little strange to me now.

    Hopefully the Salsa 29er FS will look as good.

    It's a medium.

    Sweet!

    Great build, great weight. Don't forget to protect the paint.

    Gorgeous!

    What's your seat-to-bars drop? I can't decide whether to keep everything level or go down a bit and alternate between a flat and riser bar. I like to run bar ends and I prefer a wider bar, but I haven't actually been able to get on any trails yet due to the rotten frickin' weather up here this spring. Maybe this weekend. . . .

    Neat! I love the way those Ultimates blend with the K-Force, not to mention the Noir cranks.

    Get it dirty!

    That is one nice looking bike. Shame to get it dirty, but it needs to be dirty

    Beautiful build! I find the medium to fit me well and I ride larges in others. Mine's a 2005, so I'm glad I didn't try a large (standover on that year's frame isn't forgiving). Enjoy!!
