    RFX=LIP...Moment=Placeholder???

    Alright folks,
    Since the Ellsworth forum is dead, so I would raise the question here.

    Now:
    RFX is Lost-In-Perfection and we don't know whether it will still exist or never,
    So how about an Ellsworth Moment? it share or has similar design as the good old RFX

    Any inputs please

    Ellsworths are stinky. No lightning annodized bs for me. Colored frame hardware. Lame. You should be ashamed of yourself for comparing an ellsworth to an rfx.

    now that is completely acceptable...since i've been on one for a year &1/2 now on a slightly serious note i did talk w/ Ventana just yesterday & it sounds like the Terremoto will go into the design stage next month & production...? my guess, it will be available for sure next year, early{?}, maybe, but will definately {probably} be a reality. something to check out.

    +1. Can't beat that deal at all. In fact the EG is so sweet, you may end up keeping it when the RFX comes out!

    Only way the new rfx will be competitive is if it's full carbon.
    Otherwise you might as well shelve the concept.

    Just shop a used RFX off eBay or the classifieds: $550-650 shipped and you've got all the "placeholder" you'll ever need. Done.

    Get an IH 6 Point. It has a DW link; 44mm head tube, ISCG tabs and a killer geo. It does have a 150mm rear end and a 83mm BB. I'm running mine with a tapered steerer Lyrik @170mm and a Vivid air (8.75x2.75) for 180mm in the rear. Best pedaling big bike I've ever been on and it can handle everything.

    Best thing about it is that it's dirt cheap which will allow you to offset the 1lb frame weight difference (vs say Ibis Mojo HD) with spendier bits.

    5 spot is doing it for me... as others have said it could be nicer as a 6.5 spot ... but it would then be an RFX.

    The expectations we have of the new RFX may well exceed it's ability to deliver ?

    DT best to shelve it & bring out a new model, I've thought long & hard on this you can call it ... XFR

    Ok you Turner grumpies, come on now! All this Ellsworth hate is just unnecessary.
    I have had a 06 rfx in 6" and 5" mode and an 08 moment in 6" and 5" mode. Both horst link frames. I have ridden both extensively in all types of terrain from long 4hr rides in the mountains to shuttle days in the bike parks and such.
    There is gonna be a whole lot of hate around this but I'm ready to back this up so bring it...I loved the moment over the rfx in either 6" or 5" versions in all situations. The bb was lower and made for better corner attributes, the size medium had an 18" seattube and roughly 24" TT which is roomy and allowed a short stem and the head angle was roughly 1 degree less slack than the rfx in each setting.
    What really sealed the deal for me is the customer service...this is really gonna burn all the haters bags. I bought a used moment with a ding in the downtube just behind the gusset. Before I bought it I contacted Ellsworth and asked what they thought about it. They were so confident that it wouldn't be a problem that they put me on their grassroots sponsorship program for a year to keep track of the this issue and the frame. They said if I had any issues to call them and they would take care of it for me. Never had one issue with it and I beat the piss out of it!
    Now I know Turner has great customer service, I have talked to many folks there and have even had a convo or two with Dave himself. Great company and great product. But let's be fair here folks, the moment is a damned good bike.

    BTW, I still have my old moment. Its still solid as the day I bought it. Still has the dent in the downtube. Bought it for $400 bucks!

    Also now have an El Guapo. Can be had brand new for $999. This is an unreal deal and IMO just can't be beat by anything out there now. Strong as an ox and great all around bike.

    Anti ellsworth list.
    1. When is the the.last time you saw TE ripping trail?
    2. Lightning annodizing is ghey like blue steel
    3. Overexaturated walking beams longer than john Holmes are ugly and so archaic.
    4. Lame ugly cruizer bikes.
    5. Fully active is only convincing to the.idiots that have been in a cave.since 1997.
    6. Did I mention ugly
    7. Skateboard bearings. Might as well ride an hd.
    8. Lame annodized stupid ellsworth font logo is like some shite outta England. Ugly.
    9. Anyone who associates themselves with moab dreamride is a backstabber and a dweeb.

    There are non dw mini link bikes that work very similar to dw link bikes. You don't necessarily have to hold ddub's attachment to make a bike that pedals better than a smellsworse.
