    2nd ride on Id - impressions

    Well maybe this will help bring some sunshine on a rather gloomy forum. I've been out on my new Id twice now and I'm very impressed. I had a 2001 Truth, that did not break, but I wanted to upgrade to something with more travel. The Id feels much stiffer than the Truth and more efficient in the climbs.

    P.S.

    I don't work for Ellsworth.

    Thanks
    Kevin

    Great - so what are the specs? And you do realize that new bike posts require a picture (MTBR rule)

    Ahh, of course

    Only have the one poser shot of it in the bike stand after build up.



    Ignore the clutter

    As for specs. I was able to move the drive train over from my older bike.

    SRAM 9.0 Shifters with a X.0 Rear D and XTR Front D
    Hope M4 Disc Brakes (not the monos)
    Fox TALAS up front (this is a great fork)
    Chris King Disc Hubs
    Raceface Turbine LP (non ISIS) with an older, but still going strong, Raceface tapered BB
    Raceface stem and low-rise handlebar.
    Nokian NBX 2.3 tires (seem really great so far)

    I'll be heading out to western Maryland to ride some harder stuff this weekend.

    Thanks

    Forgot to add, those are some old Shimano 747 pedals that have been on three bikes now.

    Thanks an 05

    It's all relative right? I'm heading to Greenridge State Forest kind of close to Cumberland. Some pretty decent elevation for this part of the country. Part of the Blue Ridge Mountains or maybe the Shanendoahs, not sure? Some very short, steep climbs, roots, mud and rocks. They have a dedicated Mountain Bike Trail that I rode once on my Truth so I'm anxious to compare the difference. I guess typical east coast stuff. I have been doing some tame night rides at a park near DC on the inside of the Beltway. Compared to that it is harder.

    I've got an 02 Id & had it for the last 2 1/2 years & still dont yearn for another bike, though the Moment looks pretty good, had a couple of cracked chainstays, but on both occasions these were replaced under warranty very quickly, your love it! Enjoy
