808+909 = Party Good Time
Anyone care to post me the link... it's driving me a little crackers.
I guess we'd better start a new one, 'eh!! Here are a few to get you started... My two El Mariachis, in various states of dress.rockcrusher said:I think it may have been deleted accidentally by a vacating mod. I will search around but so far haven't found anything similar.
Thank you very much for the compliment... I've run the SC32 on both of my El Mariachis, but am currently running it on the red bike. The green bike is running rigid and singlespeed, while my red bike is pullin' geared hardtail duty.Hud said:It's always good to see pics of mgersib's bikes. mgersib you have a real flair for good builds. BTW what is the setup with the Maverick?
2 of my biggest regrets in life is missing out on the Tomatillo green El M and the orange Dos.
I believe Quality Bicycle Products stocks the travel reducers or you can get them from Maverick American -- www.maverickbike.com. But to answer your question, yes, I do have the travel reducers installed, so the fork has about 88mm of travel. The SC32 is a good match with the handling of the El Mariachi frame. I'm not as big a fan of it on the Dos. I like the Reba better on the front of the Dos for some reason... not exactly sure why.Hud said:So, with the SC32 you are running it at 100mm with a '29er kit' is that correct? Where do find these travel reducers?
I like the Raven's, and am currently running the 2.2's. The Raven makes a pretty nice rear tire for the hardpack terrain we mostly have around here. I'm thinking of switching the front to a Racing Ralph next year in a 2.25 in search of a bit more traction in the front.knottshore said:Looks good- how are you liking the "stans" tires and what size are you running?
