    Ventana: 3 different frames breaking

    If you read the review from a John Wilson about him breaking 3 different frames, don't believe a word of it! He has posted the exact same review on the Ibis,site, and the Ellsworth site.
    He is posting bad reviews for no other reason than to sabatage sales for three great bike companies.
    Pay no attention to his BS!
    One very happy Ibis owner

    Give it time- they all will see or have seen a few broken frames though breaking three may be a stretch.

    Then again, he may be right about having broken three Ellsworth frames and that is not a great company to begin with. Mentioning Ellsworth and "great" is truly is outrageous!

    I don't think frames breaking is a reason not to buy from a manufacture......maybe unless it's an apparent design flaw....stuff breaks nothing is immune. Heck when my Merlin developed a crack I was a little set back but this is the real world. Let him spread his derision because he is only making himself look like a fool. This guy has opened his mouth.............

    Don't worry about it, the issue has been taken care of, AFAIK.

    I have broken three bicycle frames at the same time, running into a motel overhang at 40mph when I forgot they were on top of my truck. This is the dumbest thread I have ever read.
