Did you pick the frame sizes by the TT length?mtntrance said:I have a Dos and a Sir 9. I love the Dos and got the Sir Nine anyway. They both ride nicely. I am 6' with a 33" inseam. Since I rode each one yesterday on the same loop I noticed that the Dos Nine was faster and smoother even though it is made of scandium but I attributed this to the Salsa rear shock. The feel of the Sir 9 was more rigid, quick yet still smooth when compared to the Dos and certainly more comfortable than my old GF Rig frame. I noticed that the top tube is still higher on the Dos. For ss I like the Sir 9 geometry but I am still pretty new on that frame.
Start by comparing ETT lengths and seat tube angles (there is another thread going about the affect of STA on functional ETT length.stumped04 said:I am riding a 15" Monocog 29er and it fits me well. I like the geometry too. Any other considerations I should think about?
Sorry for me not being explicit i mentioned th LE and also mentioned that the production models had hangers.shiggy said:FYI the production El Mariachi has a derailleur hanger and cable guides.
which others are on your top 10?Vecsus said:I would curious to see opinions on this as well. I have not managed to narrow down my choices to just two, but both those frames on on my top-ten list.
