Salsa's El Mariachi 3 is a 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 large-and-in-charge 29-inch wheels and RockShox fork steamroll any terrain in your path. Plus, it comes with Shimano hydraulic-disc brakes that have stopping power to spare and a quick-shifting Shimano Deore/XT drivetrain with Deore cranks to handle the ups and downs of every trail. Meanwhile, Salsa's geared or singlespeed-ready Alternator dropouts let you switch things up and run singlespeed quickly and easily, or keep rocking it with gears. It's all about choices and good times with your Mariachi.
