It starts with a heat-treated steel frame that's built with massive clearances that can accommodate up to a 26x5" tire. Yes, you read that correctly. To accomplish this, the rear uses a 150mm QR axle. Up front, a rigid steel fork with a tapered steerer tube and a 135mm QR gives you plenty of to get up and over just about anything. Shifting is handled by a Shimano Alivio 9-speed groupset with a high direct mount front derailleur and a set of Shimano Acera M3000 cranks boasting a 40/30/22T chainring set, mated with an 12-36T 9-speed cassette in the rear. The job of slowing your roll is left to a set of Shimano Alivio mechanical disc brakes, which offer excellent power and modulation. Now let's get to what you've really been waiting for: rolling stock. The El Oso Grande trundles along on a set of DB 75Wide rims laced to 32h hubs with cartridge sealed bearings, all wrapped up in a set of 26x4" tires. That's some serious rubber that will let you roll through--or over--just about anything in your path.
