Any Glimpse Owners out there?
The Glimpse looks like a pretty sweet bike. Does anyone have any pictures, ride reports??
At last year's Interbike you were only afforded the opportunity to see the Glimpse; but this year it was possible to ride one. I had the good fortune to take the Glimpse out for enough laps at Bootleg Canyon to confidently pass on the following first hand impressions:
1. The build kit is good quality and performs very well
2. The ride is responsive but forgiving - somewhere between the Truth/Epiphany & Moment
3. It shares the same excellent climbing abilities as the Truth & Epiphany
4. It rides light
5. The handling makes it a solid trail bike, in the most "positive" sense of the term
6. It's lower price doesn't seem to compromise the value of owning an Ellsworth
7. My experience suggests the Glimpse would be a great choice for many folks looking to buy an Ellsworth, and in some cases it might be the best one.
