    Selma Ti limited

    So with the 2013 El Mariachi Ti going overseas and gaining an Alternator dropout, the USA made Selma Ti is not more (had only a 2012 run)

    Any idea on how many of these frames were made?
    Might it go down as one of the sweetest hard tails ever for SS use, or will the redesigned 2013 El Mariachi Ti out perform it?

    It is sad that they will go to lower cost manufacturing overseas and yet charge the same amount if not more! I refuse to buy the over sea version.

    Saw a Salma Ti frame on ebay and it can be had for a pretty price actually.

    Agree. It is really a shame that they moved production out of the US and still will charge the same if not more.

    Anyone actually ridden one and have feedback to compare to a Lynskey or other Ti SS?

    I have 2012 lynskey prototype and tried the salma and Rajin. All 3 are pretty close in how they ride. Geo is different as the salma is a bit quicker with salsa geo, Rajin is slacker and more aggressive and the lynskey is somewhere in the middle.

    I really like the ride of the Selma. The only other Ti I've ridden is a Dean Colonel 26er, which can't compare due to small wheel size.

    Supposedly the Selma frame is on the heavier side compared to other high-end Ti (and '13 Salsa El Mariachi Ti) , but the ride quality is excellent and geo is spot-on for my techi new england needs.
    The welds are beautiful, alternator dropouts are simple and provide option for 142x12 rear thru-axel.
