Saw the Mamasita on the video and other coverage here on MTBR, I'm very stoked. Question is, will there be sizing for us short folk? 14" maybe?

Also any sizing recommendations for the Chili Con Crosso and Campeon for a rider 5'5", 30" inseam, normally rides a 50cm roadie and a 16" (26er) mtb?

Thanks...you guys ROCK!!!!!!!!

First, thanks for the support. Now onto sizing. Mamasita. Right now, there are limits and we will producing small, medium, large, & xl. It is roughly the same as a 16,18,20 & 22". I vaguely recall us discussing this before with the Dos Niner. Take a look at the El Mariachi size small standover and TT length to see how this compares to what you normally ride. The Mamasita will not have the seat tube brace like the Dos and El Mariachi, so the overall seat tube length is much shorter.

Regarding the Chile Con Crosso, take a look at your road bike and buy the frame with the same size TT as your road bike. The Chile has a 3 cm drop, meaning a 53 fits like a 56cm frame, a 47 fits like a a 50, etc.

If you've got further questions on sizing, please give us a call at 877 Moto Ace.

Thanks again.

Thanks Jason, You've got some memory on you. Looking at the El Mariachi sizing I think the small would be fine. I'd probably just use a shorter stem. I can't wait to have a (or more than one) Salsa in the barn.

Pretty Close

Hey...while I'm at it do you think pricing will be close to what the Moto Rapido is? Need to start saving the pennies.......
Pricing is determined by the bike shop(s), but yes, it shouldn't be too far off. It's got new downtube, new chainstays, and a new carbon seat stay. I'm guessing you'll see them between $815 and $845.

Tim, What information is available on the Mamasita. I have not seen specs on the bike, just the photo on the Interbike forum. I will be in the market for a mtn bike and would consider both the Mamasita and the El Maraichi. I understand the El Maraichi is one of your complete bikes where the Mamasita would need to be built by either my lbs or
qbp. Thanks

Now that all specs on the Mamasita are final, I hope to get the information up on our site soon. Yes, the Mamasita will need to built to spec. The El Mariachi will be availale as a complete bike in Superior Blue or as a frame in blue or green.

Awesome, Thanks Man, now I can get to shopping. I think a suspension fork may be more what I need however. This bike will be for adventure races, 24hr MTB, an xterra or two, and some 07 season cyclocross perhaps. We'll see how much of that list I can actually muscle out :).
