- Anyone own two of the same bike?
I’ve got a geared 2012 Salsa El Mariachi, and I fancy getting a singlespeed of some sort for around a grand. I want to be able to run it tubeless, and it needs to be steel and rigid. The El Mariachi SS seems to be the one that best fits my needs.
Am I mad to buy the same bike again?Posted 4 years agokcalSubscriber
I have two Stumpjumper M2s. One MTB guise with suspension forks, gears; one with rigid fork, drop bars, fixed gear setup for blasts round local road routes.
Have a Peregrine, which may be compromised in the mech hanger, seriously considering (if that is the case) getting another to take on the geared road touring role.Posted 4 years agoMTB RobMember
I know a many riders who have two of the “same bike” but most are for “racing or training”,
Riders who are into Cyclo cross,
Rider who are into 12 and 24 hour racing and (not just the top riders)
Most are same frame, to keep contact points the same etc, but gen one bike is a better spec be it groupset or wheels etc, most will use “best” one for racing and the other for training etc.
If you like the ride of a bike why not have 2.Posted 4 years ago
