    I really hope Maxxis expands the gumwall range beyond the Ardent eventually. They look so good on a classy steel frame like the El Mar.

    I found a size medium 2013 black and green frame and built it up on Friday.
    I gave up my Mamasita and used most of the parts from it for the new build. I then took it for a Saturday morning ride up to Cripple Creek, a 42 mile with 7700 ft of climbing.
    Wow, I really love when I put together a bike and it feels so natural to ride. It's setup as SS with 32 x 20 gearing and I was very happy how it climbs. I did use a 110mm stem and I think that is part of what makes it feel so good.
    Pictures to come as soon as I get a chance to re-size them.
    Good job Salsa, and I see why so many people are using this bike on the Tour Divide. Had thought about a Fargo now that it has the alternator drop-outs but the bb is to low for me, glad I found the El Mar.

    I certainly hope so, I was using the Ignitor/Ikon the past 2 years and would have love to stay with them.
    I will see how the Ardent does this weekend especially with the 2.4 up front.

    My 2012 got a new frame. Shorter chainstays are noticeable while cornering and climbing but its not too bad. Improved cable routing is awesome. The ride is identical to my old frame. ETT seems longer which is nice, but the specs are the same as 2012 so Im not sure if Im just imagining things.

    Question: how is the cable routing different on the shorter chainstay El Mars than 2013 and earlier (the "woodcuts" as I think of them)? I thought the only difference between my 2013 and 2014 frames was the seat tube bend that allows for a shorter chainstay. Cheers.
