Salsa's El Mariachi 2 is a trick 29er hardtail designed for slaying singletrack, getting your bikepacking trips on and staying out later than originally planned. Its Salsa Kung Fu triple-butted chromoly frame delivers a lively and comfortable ride, while the the large-and-in-charge Stan's No Tubes 29-inch wheels and RockShox Reba fork make mincemeat out of any terrain. Plus, it comes with Shimano SLX disc brakes that have stopping power to spare and a quick-shifting Shimano SLX/XT 2x10-speed drivetrain to handle the ups and downs of every trail. And, Salsa's geared or singlespeed-ready Alternator dropouts let you switch it to a singlespeed quickly and easily, or keep rocking it with gears. It's all about choices and good times with your Mariachi.
