Bombshell!!!!!!

Ali going going full tilt on big wheel technology! Many of you might remember a few season ago when Ali "watered" the 26" wheels of his Seven Sola and grew them to 650B. Well, he has now taken the plunge and just ordered a brand spanking new Salsa El Mariachi. Titanium of course....could Dr. Ali "Double Seven" go with any other frame material....nope. His new baby is slated for delivery June 2011. I hear (of course) that he has a full slate of parts swapping waiting for his new steed.

We will be looking for big things this season from Ali......since according to Salsa's website the "intended use" of the El Mariachi Ti 29er include the following: 100 Milers, XC racing, 24 hour racing and bike packing!!! Wow! Go Ali!

Should we write Salsa and ask them to include the following uses: coffee fetching, grocery shopping, and perhaps rocky eastern US mountain bike death marches?

Definitely. I plan to use the bike for all of the above and them some.

Other uses: soul crushing.
