    I am biased with the salsa myself as I love a cromo frame and the ability to run it singlespeed or geared. The orbea is a nice looking bike as well but it has slightly more XC geometry compared to the salsa's more trail geometry.

    Either bike is nice, if in their own specific way. I ride my El mariachi as a Trail/AM bike through super technical terrain and I also race it in 24hr races. It is a nice combination of a do it all bike.
