    Just bought my first Ellsworth

    I'm pretty excited. Check it out...

    Seems like its speced pretty good. I've never had a bike this expensive before, but I got an awesome deal. 3200 shipped. What do you guys think? The XL should fit me at 6'2". I'm coming off an 80ml hardtail single speed. Big difference huh?

    It should arrive next week.

    Sweet, nice build too.
    "[SIZE="3"][SIZE="2"]but I do not see anything in the world of suspension methods that is superior to the 4 Bar.

    You got a great deal. $1800 less than my build. The previous owner was quite discerning I would say. Is that a gravity-dropper in the seat post? That's worth a couple hundred right there. And, that's not a Fox RP23 shock right? What is it?
    Finally, the dragon breath rotors with the Juicy Carbon brakes are killer. They're not Avid stock I think. Do you know who makes them?
    First ride report?

    i added the king wheelset/ti spokes/dragon rotors on 819s. that ran me 1360.
    the turbo dropper ran me i think 300 bucks.
    i added the new low rise carbon bar +dangerboy endcaps, that ran me i think 200 with install

    the crankset is ok. verdict is still out. the bike is sick though. i love it
