28 July 2006 - 21:40Nueve Salsa El Mariachi
I just took delivery of our first Salsa El Mariachi.
Another 29er offering from the Moto crew, the El Mariachi boasts a True Temper OX Platinum tubeset, matching CroMo fork, and killer looks!
This is a disc only frame, that can be run as a single speed or geared bike thanks to the Bushnell eccentric BB.
Of the two colors available, I picked the Tomatillo Green, which is, well, exactly the same color as a real tomatillo. Or Fresca. Or a margarita….
It makes me thirsty just looking at it.
Tire cleanance is not an issue, I checked the stays with an Exiwolf mounted on a Delgado rim, and there is plenty of room. Hopefully there is adequate clearance for some of these new “fat” 29er tires from WTB and Panaracer that everyone is in a tizzy about.
