    Enlightenment

    Has anyone got one of these bad boys and if so what's your experience.

    Am I right in saying they have interchangeable rear drop outs to allow conversion to a singlespeed.

    The Ellsworth site is pretty lacking in info'

    Cheers

    very nible, precise and sharp... at the time it only came in 16 and 18 inch sizes - tried 18 for a half season and loved it for speed but it was just too small for me... had to let it go...

    it is a great bike - top notch craftmanship and all nine yards that you would expect from Ellsworth...

    I just got an e-mail back from Freeborn, the UK dealer.

    They estimate delivery in Ja/Feb 07.

    It comes with verticle drop outs which are bolt on. Horizontal drop outs are only an extra 100!!

    Yes that's 100 not $'s....ouch!

    Probably still get one though

    LobbyD, purchase the frame in the USA, best thing to do in my book. I did that for my two Ellsworths when in New Zealand, never had an issue.... Your English brothas sock it to you on frame prices... Not biatching, but it is kinda rank.... I am all for the LBS, but when it is hugely different you have to be a prudent business man too...

    Hey Whafe, that sounds like the way to go.

    As a matter of interest who did you deal with when you had your frames shipped?

    PS. How is the riding in Espana and have you been to the Sierra Nevada area yet?

    sweet ride

    They ride awsome. The monostays help with the bumps too. Not as harsh as most hardtails. I'm actually selling my frame. Its last years and its a small. I'm selling it with fork and headset for $1200 if your intrested. That would be a chris king headset and sid world cup fork. I'll even throw in a ec70 stem and ec90 flat bar.
