• Are you short? Do you know somebody who is short and who is in need of a fully rigid MTB with no gears? When people are like "oh short people like you should only use 650b wheels otherwise they will die of toe overlap, i saw it happen loads of times, also something very boring about proportionality and aesthetics" are you all "FUCK YOU, I LIKE MONSTER TRUCKS"?

    High five, me too! So I built up this biek! And now I'm selling it coz I can't ride it (because of health reasons that are completely unrelated to not using 650b wheels, just don't even fucking start, alright. I see how you look at me). Lightly used! Only ridden about 4 times in total, and only one of those times involved actual mud! I even wiped most of the dust off before I took the photos!

    Also for your reference I am 5'4" which isn't even technically short, that's actually average for a woman in the UK, according to the ONS, so all those 650b weenies who keep calling me short can go and do one, right at the very deepest depth of the ocean, glug glug glug.

    What's in the box?!:
    14" Salsa El Mariachi 2 frame (rocker dropouts)
    eXotic Carbon Rigid MTB fork
    Stans ZTR Arch EX 29er rims + Schwalbe tyres
    Hope Pro 2 hubs (Trial/SS on the rear)
    Hope headset
    Shimano SLX crankset + bash (this was a double but the small chainring is gone now)
    Avid BB7 disc brakes (180mm front, 160mm rear)
    Avid Speed Dial 7 levers
    Selle Italia X1 saddle (ladies version)

    Embiggenable photos

    Sorry about the pitiable state of the pictures, my neighbours were gawking at me while i was taking them and this was the best I could do what with my crippling social anxiety shrieking that it wanted to stop being outside immediately and scurry back into its freaky spider hole where it's safe.

    I am looking for 700 of your british pounds. Collection from the suburbs of North London - arranging a courier is really just not a thing that I want in my life at this point in time.

  • !! Post of the year for me ;-) Love it !! GLWTS

  • Really interesting rear dropouts! They might be common in SS MTBs, I have no idea, but it's the first time I've seen that design :) GLWS!

  • same! ^

  • The measurements for the El Mariachi are all jumbled up on the website, so here's the relevant sizing info

    Stack - 583mm
    Eff TT - 563mm
    ST length - 356mm
    HA - 71.8
