    2013 El Mar color availability

    Does anyone know if the El Mar will be available as a frame only in colors other than the black/green shown on the Salsa website on the "frame only" page? I'm assuming not, but I really like the orange limited edition SS (which my LBS already told me not to expect as a frameset), and the red on the El Mar 3. In years past, there have also been rigid forks available in the colors of complete bikes, but last I checked (just now) none of the '13 colors are showing as available on the Grande fork.

    Black with Green, or Ti are the only "frameset only" options this year - unless something changes... The Red would have been a nice frame only option in my opinion - but it didn't (hasn't?) happened. The El Mar frames disappeared so fast this year it was unbelievable!

    I guess they've disappeared cos they're good. I'm got a Ti, but I had a quick ride on a steel (with alternator dropouts) belonging to another DRR club member and was very impressed with the ride & feel. I prefer the classic skinny tube look and some of those previous paintjobs like the 20th anniversary El-Mar.

    Disappeared is the word - we are almost already sold out of the 2013 El Mar frames, and just got them in on Friday. Damn!
