The El Mariachi has garnered rave reviews since it was first introduced in 2007. Its proven geometry and premium ride quality have inspired new devotees to the 29er movement.

Now featuring our Alternator dropout, the El Mariachi remains capable of both geared and singlespeed setups. The Alternator makes proper chain tensioning a snap while allowing hassle free quick-release wheel removal.

Our new Kung Fu tubing dramatically increases frame strength while preserving low weight and a killer ride quality.

Use the El Mariachi for your hardtail trail biking needs and local trail thrashing sessions. Consider adding our Enabler fork for more remote backcountry bikepacking adventures.

El Mariachi. If you wanna dance, you gotta pay the band
