    Ellsworth, The leader in innovation?

    This new technology won best of whats new from Popsci. Even their website is a cut above all the others, check out this video from Ellsworth. Im not affiliated with Ellsworth, i just wish i owned a Ellsworth bike.

    You think may be this should go in an appropriate forum, like, oh, I don't know, maybe the Ellsworth forum? Or are you just trying to reel in the Elllsworth haters?

    Well the 29er forum isnt known for their warm reception of outsiders, there will be haters either way.

    Eight pounds for the hub though. I'm thinking Sram i-motion is the way to go.

    Ellsworth makes some over-priced flimsy piles of crap....I've owned them....Yes i fell for the hype, twice. All they do is fall apart. Tony E is, well lets just say, " a piece of work".

    Knowing that, you'd think a person would refrain from posting off-topic.

    Ellsworth only sells the Nuvinci on their $3-4K cruiser bike.

    Yes, Elsworth is the best, that is why his first run of 29er frames had crown-downtube contact with the most common 29er sus fork: the Reba. Has he fixed the issue yet on the current crop of frames? Did he take care of the folks with the first frames with the issue? My guesses are possibly to the first, and not a chance to the last due to his sub par customer service rep.

    This is our troll friend who thinks that 29ers are just a marketing scheme. Aside from the fact that he posted it, that transmission looks interesting. More appropriate for small vehicles than bikes I'd say, since a fluid filled transmission is going to weigh down a bike too much to be useful. I think it may work well for electric cars or hybrids.

    Change that last sentence to: "I'm not affilliated with common sense, I just wish I had some" and you would have my attention.

    The thing is, your trolls are teh suxxors. Go get some pointers from Fo or something.

    Bonking ... not feelin' well

    It's not about 29er in reality, he's just trying to gain some form of reassurance that his POS Waly World bike really ins't that much lower quality than most of the "real" manufacturers bikes. With this post for sure we know he doesn't know didly about good bikes Ellsworth support sucks.
