After hearing so much great things about this bike I was planning on buying the new Salsa El Mariachi in the spring. That was until I stopped in at my local bike shop and noticed they had the 2013 El Mar 2 on closeout, I bought it the next day haha. This is my first Salsa as well as my first 29er coming from a 2011 Specialized Rockhopper. I absolutely love this thing, very very impressed. I live in west central Pennsylvania so my first rides have been in the snow.
Here are some pictures of the fist ride.
