Product Description

Boasting 180mm of travel, the Method is designed to descend fast, gobble rocks, and jump and play all the way down the hill. It?s low and slack, but will get you up hill faster than most bikes in the category due to the efficiency of the ICT suspension. With custom tuned Fox suspension, the Method provides the most supple small bump performance while maintaining a defined ramp up to smooth out the biggest of hits. The Cane Creek Angleset allows for up to +/- 2.5 degrees of head angle adjustment and a 30.9 Seat Tube built for popular height adjust seatposts. Available shock options: Fox DHX RC4 Coil ICT? Technology: Instant Center Tracking? is internationally patented and quantifiably the most energy-efficient suspension design in the world, period. Internationally acclaimed, ICT four-bar linkage technology provides up to 100% pedal power efficiency by aligning the instant center of the linkage on the chain torque line and continually tracking it throughout the range of travel. What does that mean in layman?s terms? It means ICT allows pedal power to propel the rider forward without power loss, effectively avoiding the common suspension design flaw that divides pedal inputs into a wasteful combination of forward and vertical (jacking or bobbing) motions. ICT-equipped bikes are legendary for their rare combination of responsive performance and plush suspension that can be found nowhere else. All ICT-equipped bikes feature 12mm pivot axles and oversized bearings for superior pivot stability and lateral stiffness under power. Our commitment to raising the limits of suspension technology, innovation and performance.

Strengths:    Short and very maneuverable

Weaknesses:    Crazy seat angle, quite heavy (18.5 kg in my setup), breakable mash hanger

Bottom Line:   
Fast and very maneuverable, stiff and solid frame, had problems with the mash hanger but Ellsworth replaced it to a newer model(hope the new one is better), crazy seat angle so pedalling is quite inconvenient for my hight (1.90 m).
