Pinkbike Poll: Will You Consider Buying a 27.5+ Bike?
I currently have a 29+ full rigid ss salsa el mariachi. There is something fun about the bigger tires, they drift a little more, they hook up differently, they roll differently. It is a good way to mix up how I ride. It has made me faster when I race DH because I have become more conscious of line choice instead of just plowing through stuff.

2014 El Mariachi Single Speed. This bike is stock except for an upgraded Easton Grips and Salsa Seat Clamp. Replaced fixed clamp with a lever clamp. This bike is FUN. Prior to having this bike I was only riding squishy bikes. I've pedaled uphill faster on this than any other bike. On smooth section of trails no one can keep up. It makes those trails you've ridden 10000 times new and challenging. Will consider shipping but you pay for shipping AND insurance. I will not ship a bike without insurance. Fed-ex put a hole in a bike of mine and I was screwed because I was cheap. Message me with questions.

I bought a full rigid SS Salsa El Mariachi last season. I've got a 29+ on the front and I pretty much ride that on all trails in the SLC area. I've noticed that it is making me faster on my DH bike because now I need to have actual bike skills. Super fun. Makes old trails new again.

2012 GT Distortion 3.0 I have loved this bike but I want something with a little more travel. This distortion has 114 mm in the rear and a dual position 160mm RockShox Pike up front with a 66.5 degree head angle. Don't let the 26" wheels scare you. I ride this everywhere; dirt jumps, pump tracks, long trail rides. It was designed as a slope style bike but because of the i-drive it pedals really well and the slack head angle allows it to descend quickly. I have added a lot to this bike: Reverb Dropper Post Full XO drive train (shifters, derailer) Carbon XO cranks e-thirteen chain guide/bash guard Easton havoc carbon bars Formula Brakes (black and blue mismatch of T1 and R1) Mavic Crossmax ST wheelset Fox CTD kashima rear shock Renthal 34t chainring Hans Dampf tire in the front and Minion tire in the rear. Brand new (purchased end of June) Rock Shox Pike RCT3 with dual position. Running tubes it weighs about 30lbs flat. Please message me with questions. Local pickup only unless willing to pay extra for shipping AND insurance. I will not ship a bike without insurance.
