I was actually posting a sweet bike NSMB is offering for a reward for a race of sorts.

Ellsworth doesn't have the best rep for strength. Since I am a super heavy weight, the bike mst be strong over hot...but yeah. Drool factor 10 for ellsworth too. Definately worth a stare

Have I seen? Yes...damn sexy bike. But yes. I haven't heard glowing reports about durability as a dh/fr bike.

As for not crazy money. 2200 canadian for the frame. Thats just nutty imo. But I am notoriously a cheapskate ...

compared to the demo9 it is cheap though

I like my bighit. And I did say Ellsworth are not known for being strong bikes. Not a bike in the boutique range I personally would consider for myself

Tnks Mael, 39 you don't yell about them anymore, cringe when the young hotties ask how old you are. I lie and say 45 sometimes to get the youth edge in there.
"God, you look so young!"

I weigh 150 with mud, b-perfect, good start price ( I have no fs\dh bikes ) i'm just talking what I need, the bike you posted linkage\ frame reminded me of the post. Maybe another member will find interesting, I just can't buy, building my daughters bike.
