Submitted by Doug Thurston a Racer from Sacramento, Calif.

Date Reviewed: June 24, 2007

Strengths:    Weight, appearance, smooth ride, great race bike. Rails the corners. As a tall guy, 29'ers are the only way to go for me.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I ordered up this bike after my Sugar 292 was stolen off the back of my car (despite two locks). Sherwood and the gang took the time to make a bike that fit me like a glove, which was not easy (I'm 6'5"). My first ride I noticed a major difference from the Fisher! Times on my favorite trails improved by minutes and my racing dramatically improved. Sure, it was a big investment, but well worth it.

El Patron w/F29 100 G2 ...what should I expect?

Considering trading my El Ciclon for a shorter travel XC bike. Have an offer for an El Patron with G2 fork and trying to figure out impact of G2 fork on handling. Stock geometry is: HTA = 71 AtoC = 487 (I believe this would indicate it was built around an 80m fork) Offset = 41 F29 100 G2 h ... Read More »
