Salsa El Mariachi Frameset
Detailed Specifications

The El Mariachi is our get-it-done-well-everyday mountain bike. It is proof that a mountain bike can kick ass repeatedly.

We first introduced our steel El Mariachi in 2007, and riders have given it rave reviews ever since. After all, every triple-triangle frame with 29er wheels is not necessarily equal.

Our steel El Mariachi’s use Alternator dropouts for either geared or singlespeed setups. The Alternator’s provide quick and secure wheel adjustment and have proven themselves in the longest, toughest races and rides. In fact, an El Mariachi set up singlespeed took second place in the 2011 Tour Divide race.

Whether you’re putting on the really big boy (or girl) pants and taking on the Tour Divide or a NUE-series 100-miler, or just joining your local crew for an all-day trail riding beatdown, the El Mariachi will keep you coming back for another delicious serving of dirt.

El Mariachi. If you wanna dance, you gotta pay the band.

Salsa Mamasita Frameset
Detailed Specifications

The Mamasita is our race-bred hardtail, designed to be light, fast, and efficient on singletrack trails. It takes care of XC racing business, whether for a mere 2 hours, or 24.

Custom-designed EV6 Xtrolite aluminum tubing is at the heart of this beautiful beast. While a light frame weight is important, it shouldn’t sacrifice ride quality, steering control, power transfer, or durability.

Up front, a tapered headtube mates to a large downtube to greatly increase front end stiffness and frame strength, while boosting steering precision so the bike stays where you want it to, and the trees stay where you want them to.

Shaped chainstays and seatstays maintain lateral stiffness and drivetrain power transfer, while adding slight vertical compliance to enhance ride quality. The PressFit 30 bottom bracket shell further improves frame stiffness and power transfer. Our goal is to provide ‘get up and go’ spunk without ‘Mommy, make it stop’ trail feedback.

Whether you are out to compete with others or challenge yourself, the Mamasita will help you conquer the course.

Mamasita. Not just pretty fast. Pretty and fast!

Frame Highlights

  • Mamasita - Endure Geometry
  • EV6 Xtrolite Aluminum Tubeset
  • Tapered Headtube
  • Hydroformed Tubing
  • Tapered Seat Tube Design

Salsa Spearfish 1 Frameset
Detailed Specifications

Spearfish is our ultra-endurance racing and riding machine, perfect for 100-milers, 24-hour races, and all-day singletrack sessions.

Aimed at pedaling and suspension efficiency, Spearfish offers stable, balanced handling that really shines toward the end of a long race or ride, when the rider is most tired.

Spearfish 1 offers 80mm of rear wheel travel through a custom-tuned Fox Float RP2 Boost Valve shock and is designed for use with a 100mm travel front fork.

The EV6 aluminum frame uses our pivot-minimizing suspension design and a 142 x 12mm Maxle dropout to keep the rear end tight and tracking well. Removing the rear pivot also reduces chassis weight, and reduces complexity and maintenance. The anodized finish drops a bit of weight as well.

We named this frame after the town of Spearfish, South Dakota, home to the Ridge Riders Mountain Bike Club, the Dakota 5-O race, and hundreds of miles of killer singletrack trails.

Spearfish. Charge your lights because tonight’s ride will be a long one.

Salsa Mukluk 2 Frameset
Detailed Specifications

The Mukluk is our fatbike, designed to provide extreme tire floatation in soft conditions. It rides where other bikes can’t.

Soft surfaces such as beaches, snowy singletrack, frozen lakes and rivers, and intriguing gametrails are its home.

Floatation, floatation, floatation…a fatbike is nothing without floatation. Wide rims, and wide tires run at proper pressure for the conditions, make the difference between riding and pushing.

But effective frame geometry is equally important. Mukluk handling is stable and rides comfortably at slow speed, allowing riders to avoid dabbing in tough conditions.

Mukluk 2 features an anodized aluminum frame. Anodizing doesn’t just look nice. It’s also lighter than a painted finish and much more scratch resistant and durable. Aluminum is also very resistant to corrosion so melting snow and adventures below the high tide line won’t ruin your frame.

Want your Mukluk 2 to be more than one bike? Turn it into a 29er mountain bike with a switch in wheel set. The frame is front-suspension compatible as well.

Ride where other bikes can’t, whether frozen, slushy, sandy, or downright dreadful.

Mukluk. Leave a fresh track.
