    Info on the Ellsworth Oracle from Mountain Biking Action

    Well straight out of the March 2007 issue of Mountain Biking Action:

    "
    $2195 (Frame and shock)
    ELLSWORTH ORACLE

    This is a custom cousin of the Ellsworth Epiphany. This four-inch travel bike has a titanium front triangle and carbon seat stays coupled with an asymmetrical chainstay. This frame can be ordered as a complete build with a custom wheelset using Ellsworth carbon rims and a proprietary Chris King hub set. Each Oracle can be custom sized and have the rider's name etched on the frame for no additional charge.

    Dam thats cheap, wonder if thaty is a printing error. I thought I read that it was in the realm of some 4K USD............... Danm, order 10, whats the story in the US of A when there is a printing error, I guess you could sue to get that price etc.............. Very different to where I am from. But that would be a spanking frame. Love Ti & carbon....mmmmmmmmm

    Wouldn't 4" of travel make it the cousin of the Truth rather than the Epi??? Maybe Ellsworth will update their website soon with more info on the TiRuth, Legend, and Oracle and clear up the speculation...

    Stop the madnesss

    OK here is the difinitive word on the Oracle. It was in fact a misprint by MBA. The bike comes as a complete bike only not as a frame and retails for $10,000.00 The bike will have a custom proprietary wheelset and the best build we can find. The bike can be customized for you if you like and even comes with a free set of steak knives! It is the eccentric brother of the Epiphany sharing much of the geometry and the 5.25" of travel. The front will be Ti, carbon seatstay, AL Chainstay and a Mag rocker set. We wanted to use each of these materials in a way that best suited its properties. Of course we did not expect to sell but a handfull of these bukes but we have already take several orders from both dealers and individuals. This bike should be available close to April.

    The TiRuth on the other hand is in stores and available now. (no steak knives with this one)

    Hope everyone is well.
