    Frame Only El Mariachi 142x12

    Does anyone know if the El Mariachi is available frame only with a 142x12 through axle? I don't see much info on frame only options on these things. I'm really interested in one but I don't want to pay another $150 on top of the frame for the dropouts and axle then be stuck with the 9mm QR stuff.

    I am fairly certain they come with the 9mm plates. Maybe your shop would cut you a deal, considering the drive-side plate has the hanger on it, and people occasionally break hangers. Ask them if they would be interested in keeping the 9mm stuff for a discounted 142x12 set up. It is expensive, but it is also really nice that you have the option to run whatever standard you want, and most Salsa customers aren't about chasing standards, anyhow.
