So I finally got a chance to snap a few pictures of the El Capitan that got his own purple sparkle treatment.

This has like four colors in it. In the sun it has a very purple base color with a lot of very gold/orange-ish sparkles. If you walk around to the other side of the bike so that you're facing the sun some green sparkles come out, trippy!
In the dark cloudy day, the bike takes on a very deep solid purple. Cool in it's own right.
Other times it looks slightly blue.

It's very cool, but I dig my sparkly El Chucho.:thumbsup:

Another awesome paint job!!!

Is that the new 5" Capitan? If it is, do you know if there were any adjustments to the geometry to fit the 5"s of travel?
This was an `08 hanging on the rack that we pulled and got er powdered all purdy, so it's just a regular 4" El Capitan front triangle.

So far the customer is digging the extra fluff in the rear. But not feeling too out of whack. But then again, thsi guy is just a hammer, no matter what you throw at him. Not the best 'tester pilot' by any means.:p

The new geometry specs are finally up on our website although there are a couple of PDFs not working yet (El Chucho & X-5). If anyone has questions or wants a spec sheet emailed to them, contact me at [email protected].
