ellesworth moment questions by a newb!

i love ellsworth. i got to play with a truth when i was a kid for a day and WOW! i loved it!
well now im getting to where i will be able to pay for one.( im considering it) a toxic green moment. i was wondering, if i get the fox DHX 5.0 with it. and a 150mm doublecrown could it be a hucker? you know... saint brakes, downhill rims... the whole deal! would this be a good idea for a 250 pound DH/urban freeride biker?

anything you guys know about urbanfreeride would be apreciated

I did ride a moment at the Interbike on dirt demo, and it was good. I might even say that it was one of the nicest riding bikes I have ridden lately. The Ellsworth crew had set up the bike to be a long travel cross country type rig. I would ask them about the durability of their frame for "hucking". I can't imagine the bike not riding well with that fork and parts, I just don't know if they built that frame to stand up to abuse.

....ok not knowing much about this bike except the reputation of ellsworth as a true freeride company, I would say skip it. Again this is no experience with this bike, just what I know about the other bikes.

And at 250...you are a big guy, I would be looking at traditionally strong frames like the bighit or demo9. They are actually proven. Ellsworth hasn't proven much of anything in the last 4 years.
