    1 vs 9

    Hi,

    I just want to share this pic, just taken this morning at our ride at Reverse Palace, Tagaytay City, Philippines.

    1 vs 9: 1 Titus vs 9 Ellsworth. Actually we are 11 riders in all, 7 riding an Ells Moment, 1 Ells Truth, 1 Ells Epi, 1 Titus Motolite and 1 Kona Kikapu., but in this pic, 1 vs 9.



    another 1 vs 9 pic:


    Regards,

    Does it really take 9 Ellsworths to overcome 1 Titus?

    Amazing turnaround! there was a time when Titus people outnumbered Ells users in the Philippines but now, I think the tables have turned? Why is that?

    It's probably because Filipinos are smart and they realize that ICT Instant Center Tracking is quantifiably the most energy-efficient suspension design in the world, period.

    Or maybe just because the bikes look cool?

    Either coz we have been smoking them on the trail or Because we are good looking and they wanna be just like us Ha ha , just kidding my ML friends !

    Its probably more a matter of economics, Ells used to be so expensive , that most bought Titus since they were more affordable . Based on the dollar's exchange rate now , buying an Ells here in the Phil is a lot cheaper ( 30% ) than it was a year ago .

    I may be riding a smoke 08 moment soon

    I think your first reason 2 reasons are more logical The price of Titus also went down 30% as well so what's the deal? I know of 2 people who used to ride Motolites and are now riding Moments.

    When is your frame arriving?
