    That black one is the oldest. (2004 I guess) The green is 2005 and I guess the blue one is 2006
    If you're not living on the edge you're taking up to much space.

    I've seen it in a mag written as Ellsworths 2005 dare.
    Maybe it was in Mountain Bike Fiction??

    The green one was for testing only - will never come to market.

    wheelbase

    does the wheelbase on that green one look short to anyone else? maybe the pic just got resized without locking the ratio?

    I've always liked the looks of those frames......cant say I'd ever buy one after hearing the horror stories on the way some warranty issues have been handled....

    I like the black one. I got a friend that rides one...

    The green is still nice.

    The blue. No, I don't like it one bit.

    Man, they really curved that top tube this year. Look how it radically increases the size of the two gussets that connect the top tube to the down tube compared to the earlier, black model shown above. I've got money that says ellsworth is gonna have some warrenty problems with those gussets cracking, just like my '01 model did.
