    A little Ellsworth 29er eye candy!

    Finally got the XX build on my 2010 Evolve. Switched to Sram from XTR 3x9 so both Ells would be rocking the same gearing. I think the 2x10 is the real deal and IMO the only way to go!! I have a big grin on my face every time I lock into my pedals. Enjoy the pics!!

    Both those bikes look sharp.
    Tell me about those steep angles on the Evolve.
    Do they ever feel too steep?
    How would you describe your riding style and the terrain you ride most often?

    Thanks for your comments. The bottle cages are Specialized Zee cages and work very well in the little space you have for a bottle. You pull the bottle in/out sideways. Great design. Have yet to lose a bottle. As for the head angle, I tend to ride more xc aggressive and have my 5 degree stems flipped which I may be flipping back due to some nagging back problems. I live in San Diego so there is a lot of everything here, technical rocky, crazy fast down hilling, etc. I have been riding the Enlightenment as my go to bike lately, 21.6 lbs is tough to pass on and can take on pretty much everything I throw at it, but it is nice to get on the Evolve and enjoy some FS comfort. I have been riding 29ers for the past 4 years and don't have any issues with climbing or handling. Not the twitchy feel of a 26er but IMO can keep up with the best 26er out there!!
