    2014 anyone?
    Looks like many 2013 models are already sold out. I wonder what the gossip has in store for the 2014 model year. We know about the Carbon Beargrease already...

    Personally, I'm waiting to see when a Spearfish might become available. I guess a Ti Spearfish would be (a) a dream and (b) of minimal benefit :)

    A Ti Spearfish would be (a) heavier (b) major frame flex and (c) $$$. Makes no sense at all. Carbon done correctly is a different story.

    Salsa have historically not opperated in annual cycles for models. Are we sure they have even been sucked in to this BS to start with? A shame if true as it can only lead to various combinations of rushing and delaying.

    That is the Powder Keg, slated for release in 2015 by the looks of it, as seen on DirtRag here.

    I hear there's a 9" travel DH bike coming, made out of pure crystal.

    Id like to see a colossal with Shimano hydro discs and the rear caliber INSIDE the rear triangle.

    If I had to guess...I would say look for a carbon Spearfish.

    Hoping for shorter chainstays, better cable routing and more emphasis on mountain bikes. There was a blurb on twentynineinches.com to expect some more advanced mtb product revealed this summer. We'll see.

    I'm waiting to learn what the frame warranty will be on the carbon Beargrease. I asked the folks at Salsa but they ain't talkin' yet.

    I just picked up my 2013 Spearfish 1 at my LBS today. They had a new Ti El Mariachi frame hanging in the showroom. It arrived a week ago.

    A couple of local shops here in SE Michigan have received completes, and my shop (Trail's Edge) has received a frame. From my (mostly outsider) perspective they seem to be arriving in very scattered patterns.

    What size are you waiting on? I have someone here waiting for a medium.

    A medium here as well. I've seen one medium complete at Tree Fort Bikes a month or so back, so they must be slowly rolling in. I'd heard that mine is/was supposed to be assembled at QBP this week, so I'm hoping it'll arrive at the shop next week. It's a bit disappointing as I'd originally expected to have it mid-December, but as long as I get it within the next two weeks or so to have it ready for a local endurance race I'll be happy.

    How about the 650b route? Does anyone know or think Salsa will go this route in the future?

    Medium here as well, my guess is it goes out soon.

    In case any of you are interested, my 2013 complete El Mariachi Ti arrived yesterday and I've nearly got it built up.

    If you'd like to see some photos I've taken during unboxing and assembly (to this point) they can be found here.

    Good pictures.
    Be very careful if you live or ride in California. Known to cause harm there.

    Is there any wonder why manufacturers are so tight lipped about new models & changes in existing bikes?
