    John Jesme's Ellsworth

    Came across this cool shot in the DH/FR area. John carving it up in So Cal.............

    The Adidas slope style team info says its a modified Moment. But that is a Dare for sure.

    Anyone have any scoop on this. Will he move to a Rogue etc.....

    Great seeing a Dare doing it.......................Oh brings back memories...............

    I know at some point he was using a Moment with a Dare rear end. But I thought it was for 4-cross/slalom racing, as it dropped the BB way down.

    I have built several of Johns bikes (Joker, Moment, Dare, Specialist, etc) and that photo is definitely the Dare. It is the most recent version and is built with Manitou and SRAM parts.

    His Moment has a Dare chainstay and a little shorter shock to keep the center of gravity low.

    He will probably be on a Rogue soon...(I'm sure he'll get one as soon as he wants one).

    Hope this helps...

    Yeah, and Ellsworth has helped some really great riders in the past get started; Cam McCaul comes to mind. Shaums March is another - not to mention the Flow Riders back in the day...Jesme is also an awesome rider and hopefully the Atomlab move will help him further his career.
