    True passion begins...

    .... with inspiration. I rode this beauty for 2 winters before putting the wheels on for the summer. I guess I should have done it sooner because I have been hooked on mtb ever since. Nothing will make me forget flyin down the hill on that sweet T frame...

    Its not the brand of the wand that matters, but the skill of the magician. (Make no mistake tho, your brand does suck butt.)

    Now I wonder what frame that is?

    I think it needs a gravity dropper.

    Is that the kit that Devin Lenz sells? He sure makes some cook snaux bikes.
    Hadley rear hub service here and here.

    I'd want cranks and pedals on it too for a natural feel.

    Ok, so I learned true riding passion begins on a Turner, ironically told by an Ellsworth employee.

    Speaking of EW employees, what are lead times and who's making the frames now that the three head manufacturing guys walked out in unison two weeks ago?

    Recent layoffs on top of that....

    I would absolutely love to see one of those ski bikes in action- any ski bike. Anyone got a vid?
