2011 Salsa El Mariachi 29er

So Colonel did a blog on this bike a while back, but this hardtail has really caught my eye and is totally worthy of another shout out. The El Mariachi 29er offers up a solid ride that is nimble on tight switchbacks and super stable on fast descents. It's an all around great bike for someone who's looking for a steel frame hardtail for under two grand. Salsa calls the color of this frame "Charcoal Briquette". Don't let the name fool you though, the color is far from plain. It has an awesome metallic finish that sparkles in the sun.
