    The saddle is a Flite SLR. Light & minimalist, but comfortable. It's more popular with the roadies than it is with mountain bikers.

    The battery holder is simply 2 machined aluminium clamps (these are available at most bike shops.....a lot of Trek bikes like the Y-Foil used to come with them). They allow you to bolt up any standard water bottle cage on the seatpost. There is also an optional bracket that allows 2 cages to be installed at 45degree angles....sorta like the triathletes use behind their saddles.

    My Specialist

    I've looked thorugh this thread and i was upset to only see one specialist, although it is V-Dubs. Watching Third down on my computer right now loved the Back hop drop on the dare V-dub, very nice.

    Anyway, i dont have a picture of my dare but it is a small black with dorado's and all the other neccessart stuff, i love my dare but my specialist is just so good that i hardly ride it, its fast, light and strong (and it looks the dogs!). I have it built with XTR/Saint MRP Chris king on D3.1 wheels, king headset Pyslo SL (they're the only fault, way too flexxy), thomson, etc. (sorry about the picture i used my phone, serious laziness.

    cross country should be ridden that way

It was the best pedaling suspension bike I had ever ridden and it was really stable in the front end. Durability is another issue that is supposed to be resolved in the new design. I didn't realize but I had been riding it for months with a hairline crack at the headtube. It had this creak for ever that I couldn't find until I used a magnifying glass to find it. The LBS confirmed my fear.



    if your doing anything big stop buy a 04 joker 7 or dare my truth has never failed and the way i ride (smooth) it never will

    internal cable seatstay all the way

    Things I would change:
    1. Put a real headtube badge on all frames, not a sticker and then charge $10 for one on your website.
    2. Brake line guides-a must!
    3. Get rid of the internal cable routing on the rear-end, its a hassle getting the cable thru the hole and you can't remove the housing from the stops to clean the cable.

    I love riding this bike, so much so that I had a hard time riding my road bike last summer because the rigid rear end felt primitive compared to the high tech suspension on the Truth.
    just bend the last 1" of cable and roll it untell it finds the hole takes me a hole 2 sec do u work at a shop i do thats how i do it its easy

    usa product do u support slaving kides

The Blur is is also great but is very different in terms of ride. What really made the difference for me was the customer service at SC and sizing. I had an offer of a $1400 crash replacement from Ells for a 2004 or I could buy a 2004 Blur for the same price. The truth tt was about 22.5 and the blur 21.6. I tried shorter stems and moving my seat all the way forward but the small truth was just too big. After getting used to the Blur's set up and having a bike that fits I don't miss back and wrist pain. So far I am not regretting changing manufacturers. The only bummer is there are so many people riding blur's, the truth was a bit more distinctive. Enjoy yours!
    ellsworth 4 bar has instant center tracking read up ellsworth all the way those who ride know been riding for years on them santa cruz sux sorry i use to have one super light or super bob

Maybe they do but E. is choosing not to handle it that way, I mean replacing the broken front section w/ an 04' front section at no cost. My experience w/ them has been fine, but I know they are p...ing people off with this 04' upgrade stuff. Anyway, I think my frame will hold up fine and if it doesn't, then I will probably ask them to build me a Truth w/heavier tubing and if they won't then I will go w/something else.
    levrage ratio changed duh and did you read the warranty u should take time and really read it also u should be happy they offerd the 04 its trick plush and read reviews in mags whare the peolpe that r rateing them r real bikers not morons that bash on mtbr do u want a full sus 4 bar thats 100 % drive eff. i do your loss if u buy some thing else think before u talk ****

    no on the ec 70

    Two question - On your chainstay is that a road tube or something raped around it, or something else. It looks very neat and tidy, wouldn't mind adding that to my Truth. Second question - Is your seatpost a 350mm or longer EC70. I have the 350mm and it continually slips and I have done some damage to the post so was thinking of getting the longer one... Curious to know if you know the weight of the post?

    Sweet bike - Your girlfriend would probably spend more time on a Truth if she new how it rode!!!

    Ciao
