    Mcr 9

    so where/who is the MCR 9 frame made? The frame looks great, but I'm just trying to justify the price increase over something like a Salsa El Mariachi... if both are made in Taiwan, I just don't see the increase...

    Frame material, 853 is a superior tube set compared to the Kung fu tubing on the El, I have them both, needless to say the El frame set is hanging in my shop from the ceiling.

    I've ridden both and I think the MCR is noticeably smoother given the higher-end tubing. I'm fairly certain it is lighter, too

    That said, my MCR is getting traded out for a Jet momentarily - so if you need a large for less than a new ElMar lemme know..ad will be up here shortly..
