I've got an itch to switch from my perfectly capable and decent aluminum hard tail to a Ti framed bike. I'm looking for opinions regarding the 2013 Salsa El Mariachi Ti and GT Xizang 29er frames. I understand both are very new so there may not be much trail riding feedback yet but I'd still like to know your thoughts about the two.
Which one would you choose and why? Is there a rigid Ti 29er fork that could work with either frame? Rigid fork is not required but just curious.
I primarily ride single track and would like the flexibility of going between single speed and geared. In reality I'm going to go 1x9 but I'm dreaming of SRAM XX1.
From what I've read both frames are around $2k list.
