this is the first I've seen the Chili Con Crosso...I've seen the Las Cruces at the races, but I've not ridden it. it looks like the difference is the Chili is a semi sloping toptube (with flat spot for shouldering the bike) and it does not come with a fork. I had a salsa campeon and the weakness in the frame set was the fork...it was way over a pound at a time when many forks are in the 350 gram range. it seems that the Chili is what they call their dedicated cross machine, where the Las Cruses is more of an all rounder.
