    Holy crap! That's not a 27.2 seatpost or a QR rear axle. The world must be coming to its end soon.

    I like the internal routing. If they have a straight black color scheme, that thing would look awesome!

    Wow, a full suspension cross bike! Looks like you could almost squeeze a 38 tire in back.

    Actually the rear seatstays do look pretty limiting.
    I just hope the revamped the geometry...unless you like the 72ish HA and longs stays.

    ha, first thing i noticed as well.

    it's gotta be the camera angle man, nobody would make a bike with that little tire clearance...

    +1 on the geo but to the limited tire clearance of the seat stays, the angle of that photo could be misleading. It would be nice to get a few more shots to be sure. No water bottle cage mount inside the front triangle is a deal killer for me though, too bad cause it sure is nice lookin.
    This may be a total waste of time but I can't help but think that you might amount to something someday.

    That is the least offensive Ellsworth I have ever seen, I would still never own it. After seeing interviews and watching videos on their website it is quite clear that tony Ellsworth has no business being in the bike business.

    Please open the windows and doors and take a break man. It will do you good and your grey hairs will start to fade....


    Ive seen it for years and years and its making me sick. Ells folks are arrogant aholes and their shXt doesnt stink, I get it. But the bottom line is this is a post about a new bike that no one here has even seen let alone ride. I too can bXtch about Ells with my past experiences and internet babble I have read but come on. It doesnt matter what bike the OP posted, its good and new news. But NOOOOOO..... some a - holes have to pipe up and be so F'n annoying. Oh well thats my 2ct. I guess this is the world we live in.

    Oh, and nice looking bike for sure. Tire spacing probubly has not changed much, which is limited, if they are using the same swing arm and the "flexion" is still part of the design.

    The world we live in is one where a persons actions have consequences.

    Ellsworth Bikes is a great example of a company that survives in spite of its owner which is also a testiment to the product. Must be good stuff if people will still buy it from such a polarizing figure.

    I do business with people I like and companies which treat others with what in my opinion is good ethics and fairly. There are two Ellsworth bikes that I would like to own but never ever would because I absolutely will not support the D'bagery of the owner and some of his management/employees via purchasing the product.

    I can measure the distance between the crank and the frame and see if the 156 will do.

    Well.... Based on the tables provided for XX cranksets... between a Q factor of 168Q and 156Q there is a difference of around .20" inches ( between 3/16 and 1/4 inch)......ON EACH side...
    I dod recall that when I installed the Cadence magnet on my 175mm with Q factor of 168Q Crankset, I had about 3/16" clearance between the Magnet sensor and the rear frame....( and do have in mind that the Magnet width is around 3/8" )
    I would tend to think that yes, it will work, but if you want to play it safe, call or write Ellsworth. They should clear your diubts...
    Anyways... Nice bike, you will love it.!!!

    Thanks for the info...I just called Ellsworth this morning and Andrae actually recommended the 156Q Factor. So...I should be good to go! I'll post some pics & comments as soon as I can.
