I'll be honest, I've never ridden a Salsa before, but I like the look of it. I wanted to ask for some more seasoned Salsa riders for their opinions.
Would you recommend it? how is the price?

Seems a little pricey for the steeper shorter geometry of old. If that’s what you like though it’s a great frame. Rode my 2011 until this summer when I replaced it with a Spot Rocker. It sits in my shed because I can’t part with it even though I’ll probably never ride it on trails again.

That one looks like the first version of the El Mariachi Ti that had the 1 & 1/8th head tube. That significantly limits the fork options.

With that said, those are great bikes if you like the classic XC geometry.

In fact, Ive got a Large 2011 El Mariachi Ti (with the newer 44mm headtube) built up reasonably well. It just sits in my garage now that Ive got newer bikes. Id sell it for a lost less than $2500. PM me if your interested.
