    Old one looks like this


    It was know for this (hairline crack at the weld) I was well taken care of by the folks at Ellsworth. This is not meant to start a pissing match.


    New one looked like this




    It was probably one of the better riding single pivot bikes that I had.

    It says joker on the top tube, as to yours which says it where the top and bottom meet. would this mean it was the new or old version?

    Swingarm is that silver ano part with Atlas sticker on it.Thats where the difference between old and new one is.It seems that on blue Joker has old type:more simple desing,front of the swingarm is straight.Compare pics.

    Yes, Pro's joker looks like the older version, which is what I had. Same color scheme too. My joker did not break, and it did ride allright for a high single pivot. The price seems fair, but bear in mind that you will get no customer support from the manufacturer iif it does break. Not trying to start a pissing match; you are not the original owner, and they probably don't have any replacement parts left.
