I'd say most definitely. I built one up similar to their complete build, only with XT hubs, moots seatpost, CK headset, Juicy 7's which I already owned (not part of price comarison) and thomson stem/mary bars. I spent WAY more money than the retail on this build. I could have bought this build and swapped out for what I ended up with still for less. I built it up last fall well before it's release so it's the price I payed for being impatient.F5000sl said:$1550 though, not too bad. Is that a good price for one?
Gotta love the heading for that eBay listing:xJAHx said:Before buying the El Mariachi LE SS last week, I thought about the EM Complete. If you do not mind buying online, amcycle has them for $1425 + $14 for shipping on ebay*:
*I am in no way connected with this seller, and I do not know if they are a legit Salsa dealer.
In the 1x9 rigid fork format, for the 19/20" frame I hefted, it was easily >27lbs. Don't get me wrong, It was pretty, had nice components and I'm sure rides really well on trails, but like my GF Rig, it's a heavy bike.Random Drivel said:Any estimate on what the weight might be fore a med or large?
I weighed a medium (appoximately an 18") on a digital scale at work and it weighed 25.6 lbs w/o pedals.Caffeine Powered said:In the 1x9 rigid fork format, for the 19/20" frame I hefted, it was easily >27lbs.

What the heck is up with that anyway? I know 700c/29er hoops & tires are bigger than a 26" but shoot... why do the stock 29ers weigh so dang much?
