    After 15 years on the Dare, it was time for an update
    Looking forward to trying out Tony's new design and all the current goodies this industry has to offer

    Two more. I got my '16 Epiphany 29er Carbon last month. Quite an improvement over my '09 Evolve.Who still rides their Ellsworth?-img_1206.jpg

    Problem is Tony sold the company in 2014 to BST Nano Carbon. I'm pretty sure he has nothing to do with the designs anymore. Keeping the name for its long running success. Whole new company focusing on carbon fiber.

    My understanding is that Tony is back with the company in charge of development and design and some other things with the new investor making the business decisions.

    Haven't been able to find anything stating that.

    All those were from the take over, nothing since. I'm thinking Tony is in the Caribbean soaking up some Margaritas.

    Not quite correct, BST Nano went out of business. Full story here:

    Bike companies that are (somehow) still around | Page 2 | Ridemonkey Forums

    If you read those articles, there are some contradictions with the current Ellsworth website that says aluminum bikes are made in the US and that US materials are sourced for the carbon frames. One of those sources (the stories or Ellsworth) is not factual.
    "It's only when you stand over it, you know, when you physically stand over the bike, that then you say 'hey, I don't have much stand over height', you know"-T. Ellsworth

    You're turning black metallic.

    Here's where Tony has been, at least as of mid-2016: Catching up with Tony Ellsworth ? Dirt Rag

    I also heard a very recent Vital MTB podcast with Brian Lopes, and he says Tony's at the company doing design, etc. but Jonathan Freeman, the new owner, is running the business.
