After a couple of months of collecting parts and ideas, I finished up the mods to my new 2012 El Mariachi Ti, size large. I wanted the 2012 model since I will never 'convert' it to single speed, and it is USA made by Lynskey (as is one of my road bikes). I was lucky to find a complete bike still in a shop's inventory, although across the country from me (it was in NJ and I am in CA).
The upgrades consist of a full array of Chris King components, the hubs built up in a new tubeless wheelset with DT Swiss rims and WTB Bronson tires and Hope skewers, the Inset7 headset and King bottom bracket all matching the red bits across the bike. A Lynskey Titanium seat post, J&L titanium stem and bar with a Ti spacer and Ti stem cap/bolt. Running Time ATAC pedals. Specialized grips and a Barfly garmin mount. A matching Salsa QR seatpost clamp and my favorite bell round it all out. Only a few rides so far, but it is sweet. Still in that new state, awaiting plenty of dust and dirt shortly.
