    They do break.

Some were true JRA's and others were asking for the break. It is true though that alot of the early Ellsworths had some design flaws and were prone to break. I was treated very well when I called to warranty the part and had a completely redesigned swingarm in 4 days, no questions asked. I wouldn't be worried about if you are purchasing it new and as a matter of fact my next bike will be an Ellsworth.
    Ellsworths claim to fame is the lightness of the frames. Sure the frames are the lightest in the business but light frames will not be as strong or as durable as heavier ones. I have a joker 7" so I am not concerned about breakage(I hope) but I have read hundreds of posts from surprised riders who break ellsworth frames(Mostly truths and older joker/isis)while doing unremarkable normal riding. Obviously something is not right here. Maybe the newer frames will be more durable.

    Nice ride. My Joker is just under 40lbs but I still use it as a trail bike.

    Nice rides everybody, just when you think you're special, some other s**tbag comes along and shows you up...oh well, that's mountain biking.

    Here's my 2005 Moment - took it out for a couple of rides over the weekend, and am stoked!

    Good job! Green 2001

    Well, here's my 2001 Truth. Although there seems to be a sense of aversion to this bike, I love it. It's been nothing but solid reliability and fun for me.

    I'm glad you like it but like a person with high colesterol and a heart attact genetics, don't ignore the warnings. Check it regularily for cracks at the base of the rocker pivot bracket on the seat up. There is a stress riser in that design. It's not that people have an aversion to the BIKE, it's the fact that LOTS of them break there and there and a mechanical engineering freshman can recognize the flaw there.

    ...and of course you aren't going to have problems before it happens.

    People come and go, get busy doing other stuff.

    Do you know how to set up a sticky for an Epiphany database? Or to insert it into the existing database? We need one with all the new Epiphany owners.

    We ride!

    Maybe Ellsworth riders actually ride their bikes and don't just sit around talking about it on the internet! It is also possible that people get tired of all the childish crap that goes on on these boards. How many trolls try to stir stuff up? What about all the arm-chair engineers arguing about one bikes design over the other? I think many just enjoy riding and like avoid all this extra BS.

    There's no doubt that Ells makes a great riding bike, but to blatanly overlook the companies frame failures and scores of unhappy customers is just blind. Santa Cruz makes great bikes along with many other manufacturers. If effeciency were the only standard by which one rated bikes then Ells might be in the top 5, but there are so many other categories in which you rank frame builders. If effeciency is your only category buy a HT. I have read up on Ells and suffered through a really unreliable bike that spent as much time being repaired as ridden.

    Honestly I feel for me my Blur is a better bike than the Truth I owned. I really liked my truth's ride and weight, I just don't miss all the hassle and poor service which I hear Ells has improved. There are choices that work for different people, and that's great. I don't race and I ride alot of 20-40kms of single track that is technical. I find the blur to suit me better in steep terrain, so there's nothing to be sorry about, I got into a completely reliable bike that helps me spend more time on the trail and fits and rides better for me. Blanket GM union worker type statments about other companies isn't really helpful to the discussion and shows a pretty subjective understanding of the bike world.
    Narrow is the path to life, few are those who find it.

    Digging up and replying to a post that is over 2 years old?

    Perhaps you should look at how Ellsworth is performing today.

    Everybody has their share of problems. I personally know of two Blurs that had the linkage bolts snap and one of them was out of the showroom floor for less than 3 weeks.
