    I would kill to have this color available on newer Truths,Green is my fave color for a bike,in fact my last two full sussy's were a shade of green,a Proflex 753 and a Fat Chance SAB.
    I would go with a brand new 06 IF that color,or something very close was available.

    not mine but

    I rode this today, killer ride, more xc than my bike but so much better than my old truth and the Id I tested a few years ago. If I need a replacement this might just be it.
    Second test ride today and I played with the rear shock settings with a more scientific bent. Not a bad backdrop though huh? Great day out, mid 80s 20mph warm winds on Jan 14th.

    Thanks. I spend the most time on the Epi and Moment. The Rogue is only used for resort riding or shuttle rides. I've only had the Tiruth a few months, so it's only been on 2-3 rides.

    Joker XC

    This is my new Ellsworth. This build started out as Red ISIS brand new left over stock from a bike shop. Once I received it there were alignment problems. I sent the frame/swing arm back and it was confirmed that there was an alignment problem. So Ellsworth sent me a new JokerXC/Swing arm. I was a bit disappointed that I did not end up with the ISIS but after about 150miles I cant be happier. I built it for durability with some weight considerations, it really feels solid but rolls slower than my other bikes (probably tires).

    holy crap that moment is sweet. Nice ride nsynk, have you worked it in yet?
    let us know what you think.
    I *should* finish mine tomorrow, (still waiting on a stinger), and take for its first shakedown.

    A weight with that caliber build would be cool to know, It's about time there were some more moments with chain tensioners too!

    Thanks primefocus,
    Been out a handfull of times, deliberately picking places that I felt underbiked on my ID.

    Still trying to get the shocks set up but first impressions are it is an amazing bike. It seems to excell at steep rocky shutes, not in a bulldozer kind of way but in a smooth finessed sort of way.

    It is a drag on long fire roads and tight switchbacks but I am amazed at how well it climbs technical rock sections. There is one rocky climb section that took me several rides to master on my ID but I cleaned it straight away on the moment.

    It is stable at speed, corners well, manuals and pops off the jumps really easily.and encourages you to try anything, in fact some of those sections that i felt pleased to just survive on the ID i now feel overbiked on on the moment, they now seem so tame I am looking for bigger challanges!

    The only thing it seems not to be good at is slow, trials like section such as ladders etc but nor am I so that may just be my lack of skill in that area.

    Weight wise, standing on my bathroom scales and deducting my weight (not very scientific) I reckon it is about 34lb maybe a touch under. To be honest that is a bit heavier than I expected, despite it being built for durability. I reckon there is about 5lb excess in the tyres, seatpost,vented discs and chain device when compared to the sub 29lb builds I see listed. I am happy enough with the weight, it is still 5lb lighter than my DH bike.

    Can't wait to take it to the alps in the summer, it will be in its element (and so will I)

    Before you scroll down: as far as I know, hell did not freeze over when i mounted the fork, nor did I get struck by lightning. Feels awesome on the bike though. My main riding buddy has a 36 talas, he digs it too.



    That is awesome to hear man, good luck getting it dialed. I had a similar experience when I got mine together and out for the first time today. The bike fits great, a little long but that's why I wanted a medium over a large. I'm 5' 11.5", 160-165 pounds, the spring on there now (TIMBERRR's Pushed DHX 5.0) is a 500 pound spring. I'm getting 15mm of sag (26% of 57mm), so the back end felt pretty poopy. Anyone think 450lb will be enough change? I'm guessing it will.
    Anyway it really climed great (I have been pedlin' a 40+ pounder lately though), the firm spring helped i'm sure but traction was good. I did have to pay more attention on skinnies but the bike really takes to the air easily. I'll give a whole review when I get it dialed but its still a blast as it is. Haven't had it to a shop to weigh it in but I got 32.5 lbs. from a hanging spring scale, its prob a little more though.

    I want your wheels nsynk!

    That's sweet, it just screams FAST

    Never seen the spech fork on anything other than a spech, looks good.

    I am guessing it weighs in a bit lighter than my set up.

    What do you reckon the fork has done to the angles? isn't the spec fork a tiny bit shorter than an equivalent fox?

    Thanks for looking! It was a fun build.
    The fork is 150mm; I believe the a2c is 535mm and a 2009 36 (160) is 545 (someone correct me if i'm wrong). Leelikesbikes has said in the past that there is .75" difference between the two though. So the HA is a touch steeper, prob ~half a degree or so, but it felt great on the first ride, time will tell....

    the 535mm for the e150 was from my own measurement btw, but I think i read a similar number a while back.

    Pick up closeout 2010 factory Epi....gone through plenty of bikes through my years, but still dig Ells. Spec small Epi SST-1, X9 factory build. I am about 5'5" 29 inseam frame just right, Ells runs their frames on the taller side. San Diego trails only, noble canyon, daily ranch, la costa and good old hodges Demo'd a few other makers but this seems to be the perfect bike for my style of riding. Hopefully get some Gopro video up soon

    Great thread

    It's cool to look back and see the "evolution" (pun intended) of Ellsworth.
    This is mine at Daleys just a few days ago. Love my Truth but wish I had an Epi.
    Need more travel for the San Diego area.

    Love my Ellsworths!

    I currently have 6 Ellsworths of diffrent forms, looks like I maybe selling 2 of them to a couple riding buddies, kinda sad, but it gives me some room and money to get my next Ellsworth! An Evolve or Evolution. Not sure what one yet, going to ride both to see what I like better. Any one else ride both and have an opinion? Anyway here are a couple pics of my rides on the trails.

    Pivot Bearings

    Ellsworth's rear suspension relies on pivot bearings.

    If these bearings are not rolling smooth, corroded or slightly seized, then the frame takes the beating instead of transferring the forces to the shock.

    Newer Ellsworths no longer have the Pivot Gusset that saw breakage where they were welded to the seat tube.

    So check your bearings, or replace them. A set is like $30 from Enduro.

    I broke a 2007 Truth in April and got "The Bearing Lecture" from Diego in the Ellsworth Warranty Dept. They were gracious enough to send a 2012 Truth SST.2.

    Some beautiful bikes in here for sure.

    I need some help. Does anyone know the proper bolt sizes used in the rear triangle of an '08 Epiphany?
