A new friend arrived in Boulder yesterday, freshly fabricated with a variety of custom tweaks to make it perfect for all my picky bikepacking desires, thanks to the amazingly supportive crew at Salsa Cycles. Say hello to the El Mariachi.
I feel a little guilty for welcoming this beautiful frame into my home but not openly sharing with it the beating it's in for come June. I'm sure my other bikes will fill it in, though.
Sadly, it'll have to wait a couple weeks to be built up. There are some more pressing matters to deal with in the mean time. More pressing like a fresh round of desert Spearfishing.
