Salsa El Mariachi titanium 27.5 Plus adventure bike with new Shimano Alfine Di2 electronic shifting. This can be a very high end custom build with less than 50 miles of use, built it for my wife and she hasn’t found time to ride it.
The build began with a 2015 Salsa titanium frame that I had professionally brushed and removed all logos for a cleaner look. This frame is very versatile with new school geometry, short rear stays and more slack angles. The Salsa alternator rear dropouts allow easy service and adjustability. They also allow for the addition of a rear rack for bike packing expeditions.
The following components were purchased new for this build and have less than 50 miles of use:
2017 Fox 34 “Boost” spacing
Shimano Alfine Di2 11 speed internal geared rear hub
White Industries “Boost” front CLD+ front hub
50mm Light Bicycle carbon rims with DT Swiss spokes
Maxxis Chronicle 120 TPI 27.5 x 3.00 (front) setup tubeless
Maxxis Rekon 120 TPI 27.5 x 2.8 (rear) setup tubeless
Shimano 160mm IceTech center lock brake discs front & rear
Chris King headset
Shimano XTR crankset (light scuffing on sides where shoes rubbed)
VP flat pedals
Pro Vulture saddle
Phil Wood seat clamp
King titanium bottle cage
Limited edition Chris King/Spur Cycle bell
Jones integrated handlebar bag
Parts that were used prior on another bike project:
Shimano XTR hydraulic disc brake set (they work well and have good pad life left)
Niner RDO carbon seat post
Jeff Jones care for bars
Race Face 80mm stem
This bike is one of kind and must be ridden! The electronic shifting is a blast to use and will rarely need charged, Shimano estimates under normal riding it is going to last 6 months plus. The battery is integrated inside the seat post and the integrated wiring makes for a very clean look. The system is charged at the electronic gear display on the care for bars. Small Shimano USB charger is included in this sale. Also included are the additional 142 thru Alternator drop outs (both SS and geared) and the original Salsa headbadge if you prefer that look. This titanium bike will last a life-time at the same time as the 27.5 plus setup will roll over everything in its path!
I will have professionally packed by local bike shop and insure for full selling price. Free local pickup, Lower 48 states only, I can not ship international.
Thanks for taking a look and feel free to ask any additional questions you’ll have.
