    u have one of the first production models with the ATLAS design.
    Aeon was designed by Ventana and Ells, but it ended up under Ells flagship after only a couple of years.

    I guess Ventana walked away with a nice, fat check

    don't really care what happend between them. we'll never find out the real truth anyways. That's their business and not YOURS

    one thing that does matter, ATLAS is the best single pivot design, and Ellsowrths craftsmanship is #1 on the market.

    Ellsworth doesn't build bikes and Ventana designed the frame.The term craftsmanship is not applicable with Ellsworth as they didn't design or build the frame. I still think Titus Loco is a better single pivot design.

    My wifey loves her Loco!

    I was thinking about that handcrafted in CA thing. Obviously that means Ellsworth gets all the parts from Oregon and press the bearing and tightens the bolts...that is handcrafted.

    That said, I love my new shorter romic on my Id. I rode some gnarly trail today and felt like my Id was dialed in. Climbed like a goat and gave me rock solid confidence on the drops. After my experience, the CA edition Id may actually have too short of a shock, and the moment headtube may be too slack.
