First introduced in 2007 and ever since the steel El Mariachi has received very positive reviews. Anyway, not all triple-triangle frame with 29er wheels are an equal to each other. Our steel El Mariachi uses Alternator dropout for gears and singlespeed setup. For the Alternator has a great quick and secure wheel adjustment which have been time proven to really perform on long and toughest races. In fact the, El Mariachi set up singlespeed took second place in the 2011 Tour Divide race. Whether on the Tour Divide or a NUE-series 100-miler, or just being with your friends expect to give out dust on El Mariachi.
