    Nice to see this thread get bumped back up- I made a few mods to my Red Mariachi- I finally replaced the grips... another set of ODI's- For a while I was running a Thomson Masterpiece post but went to a straight ti and loved it... just installed the laid back ti post and can't say how much it adds to the comfort- between the big rubber, smooth steel, and ti post it is almost cheating calling it a "rigid"! I also ran some 2.4 Racing Ralphs (which did buzz the stays on my flows if I torqued it on a steep climb) I just never fell in love with them and they are very delicate so back to the Weirwolfs... and Rampages in the foul weather-

    I had a set of Hope/Flows built up to get a bit more out the the big volume tires- So far this year it has been a SS but I may go back to 1X9 if the need arises... the beauty of the Mariachi it can match your mood-

    This thing makes me feel like a kid on a well loved BMX bike- just fun- I have been riding my full squish for the past few rides but can't wait to take the mean red machine soon- Ride on-

    2010 El Mariachi

    Sorry guys but I took the lazy approach and pasted the link to pictures of my rig (racing out the door to work!):-

    Show us your bike porn

    As stated elsewhere the onlybits that are new is the frame, headset, tyres, chain and grips. The rest has been cobbled from bits and pieces.

    My new-to-me frame and fork, done up as a rigid single speed. Only a couple of rides and some backyard practicing so far, but I'm having such a blast on this bike! It really is like being a kid again...

    That blue looks darker on yours vs the website. Is that the case or is it your lighting making it darker ? Looks great.

    The blue is a little darker than the website photos, but the lighting in that particular photo definitely makes it seem even deeper than it is.

    also, i got it at an LBS through qbp. i think qbp had something like 11 frames in stock and i managed to snag one of them.

    It's lighter in person, but I haven't seen any pics that are actually the same as the real life color.

    Very nice. We have the same frame and grips (and number of gears).

    I can't wait to get mine finished.

    Large/20"

    Pics have the fork set at 120mm, but I reduced it down to 100mm before I even rode it.
