    Ellsworth Evolve Carbon!

    Finally pulled the trigger on the new Evolve Carbon after riding an SST1 Evolve for the past 4 years. After just a couple of rides including Noble Canyon in San Diego, I must say this bike feels amazing. Still getting dialed in with the XX1 after riding XX for the last 4 years. Initial impression of 1 x 11 is very good, but sometimes feel the jump from the 36t to 42t is going to take a little time to get used to. Running a 32t up front. Went with gripshift after wanting to go back to the old school days but just can't get the feel again after riding triggers for so long. Going to switch back to a trigger set up. More ride reviews to come.Ellsworth Evolve Carbon!-ellsworth-carobn-evolve.jpg

    Wish their website worked...kinda would be interested in the Enlightenment 29r HT with an XT build, but the site is link unfriendly. It's lower SO is way better than the two other carbon HTs I am shopping now.

    Anybody know their pricing on the above?

    Beautiful bike. I'd love to read more ride reviews after you get more miles on her.
