    Does my frame have balls

    I have read numerous posts talking about shot peening balls left in the frame screwing up seatposts, headsets and bottom brackets. Does Ellsworth still use this method and if not when did they stop. I have a 06 moment and I'm wondering if I need to tear it apart to checkout. Thanks TAG

    Does your moment have a shoot peened texture?

    That should answer your question.

    All I know is my Use to be black Thomsom seatpost is scratched to hell. Almost just as much silver as black at this point.

    "[SIZE="3"][SIZE="2"]but I do not see anything in the world of suspension methods that is superior to the 4 Bar.
