these folks will never guess! :) they do not have the infinite wisdom of Fo!
i'll take a shot....it's got to be a 29er so i'll go with an ElPadrino with non suspension corrected rigid fork. Oh, and with some kick ass yellow decals !

But those tubes confuse me...beefy up front, and the seatstays of a Martillo CX ??? hhhhmmm, what gives ?

Dirt Jump hardtail?
Long tube join weld at head/top/down tube join and thick tube seat stays.
It does have a very short head tube though, very close to the welds.

El Comandante

By the appearance of the short headtube and the way the top and down tubes meet there, the fact there is no evidence of a cable heading towards the rear of the bike by either the seat or chain stay, I would suggest it is an el comandante. i am guessing the front derailleur has been put into the last shot to throw people off the scent.

I'll guess at not custom.

I know! I know! Pick me! I have an unfair advantage though, saw it at the shop in production..... I know it starts with "El", ha ha ha I won't ruin the surprise, it is uber cool though!

Well it's blue and it's got a ventana headbadge so it's a ... blue ventana ;)
I would say single speed 'cause of the last picture and what material name finishes with: "... LDS" ? Reynolds. So how about a blue ventana ss steal frame but then again the tubes look too big for steal so back to Al.
I think though that it probably a small size frame.

Am I close? Hot /cold?

Uh, you mean the Electric Sex WeLDS sticker?

Looks more like a chain guard than a f. derailleur, so I'm gonna say cruiser.

I like the subtly shaped tubes.
