The Bike

I recently purchased a Salsa El Mariachi SS 29er and intend to ride it in the 2015 tour, with modifications to be made and discussed later.  At present I am riding the Mariachi as it came in the box (pedals are Odyssey platforms), the only exceptions being Tioga 700x38 City Slickers and a 13-tooth rear cog in place of the specced off-road tires and 16-tooth cog with which the bike was equipped. The two changes made the 35k commute to work this morning as quick (1:15) as if I'd been on my road bike.
