    Nice. All you need to complete the stealth look are:

    1. 100 mm Minute 2:00
    2. CrossMax XLs instead of the SLs

    I was going to do something like this on the weekend but I got a little scared in doing so. Do you know if it voids the warranty? I assume it does so?

    I have been using some Jag Wire things to hold my lines in place, but I think exposure and what not has warn them out or something because they just don't seem to hold my lines anymore.......

    The warranty clearly states that any modifications to the frame not performed by Ellsworth are not covered.

    I would be shocked if Ells were to say that removing 1 or so millimeters per side on part of the inside diameter of the cable guide would cause the frame to prematurely fail.

    All I did was make the existing larger diameter constant through the guide.

    You are missing my point.

    Ellsworth's warranty is clear. ANY modifications not performed by Ellsworth are not covered under the terms of the warranty. Perhaps they will ignore it if there is a problem, but it is definitely an out for Ellsworth. I am not trying to upset anyone, but the wording of the warranty is very clear. (At least that part, anyways.)

    This is a standard modification clause(sp?) that is used in most warranty terminology. Look closely below. It is there. This is rom the 2004 warranty info, but is was on the pre-2004 warranty also.

    I like the first line. "limited warranty" subject to change without notice due to technical or market changes. WTF, eh?
    Again, I am not trying to be abrasive, just helpful.

    Certificate of Authenticity
