    That is just splendid! Can't wait till SOC.

    Can't quite guess how the top of the top tube looks like but the down tube is really nice.

    Friggin sweet. Anyone care to speculate why they mounted the rockers to the inside of the seatstay? Structural integrity? To be different?
    How about tire clearance? Travel? Weight?

    I'm diggin the smooth lines and gently arching TT. Down tube is real nice looking.

    Wow, that shock looks stiff...
    Its not the brand of the wand that matters, but the skill of the magician. (Make no mistake tho, your brand does suck butt.)

    Like it, may have to upgrade my 05 Moment....
    "[SIZE="3"][SIZE="2"]but I do not see anything in the world of suspension methods that is superior to the 4 Bar.

    I'd love another Ellsworth one day. Dam this obsession of mine with bikes is going to bankrupt me! Better get to work.

    Very cool. I'm not sure I like the upward-curving top tube (kinda reminds me of the Nomad, which I think is really ugly). Other than that, it looks nice.

    I dont think it looks anything like the nomad. This is a bit more refined with the curves and I really think it is so MUCH better than previous models in that regards. Still needs more refinement and it would be good to have the parallel links looking more original and refined as well as the shock mount also refined to be a bit more aesthetically treated, functionally of course.

    Hopefully that top tube curvature is a result of spreading out some sort of stress, maybe from the fork. Otherwise, it's a waste of effort to purposely bend a tube just for some odd look.

    I surprised some calculus of variations guru hasn't modeled the perfect bike triangle shape. Although the triangle "truss" shape seems ideal, it's probably not due to the reality of tube diameters, wall thicknesses, and the forces on the bike.

    Bending of TT

    The reason they bend the TT like that is to absorb stress from coming down from a jump, huck, etc... By bending the TT, when the shock is compressed in the back it propels the bike forward and eliminates strain as you said.

    OH THAT is sexy...and well...damn that is sexy!!!! Seriously nice lines, but my original opinion still stands though. But darn that is pretty good. I would say that at this point in time, that bike is the only Ellsworth that I would consider buying...sweet.

    Nice! The curves look much more subtle on the comlete bike vs. the naked frame.

    Looks like a weight weenie built this one up. Even went with a carbon seatpost and an X2 stem.
