    Strengths:    This DJ frame is by far the best i have ever gotten a hold of. its incredibly stiff all over. it steers though tech sections better than my XC bike (sugar 1)and its not even a trail bike. very easy to handle in the air, street, or trail. i have yet to find something that it is not suited for. i even raced the beast DH. the welds are absolutely perfect.

    Weaknesses:    uhh, no

    Bottom Line:   
    i will have this bike forever! there is no other hardtail bike that i would ever even consider. another plus is that the size long works great for tall people, i am 6'4" and it fits me just fine. you definatly get what you pay for when it comes to Ellsworth!

    as far as the other review above bashing the paint job, yeah, its not paint its anodized with lazer ethched graphics, meaning in 5 years it will look the same, no fading, no sticker pealing, no light scuffs that make the frame look worn out.

    Strengths:    Handling, versatility, strength, workmanship, weight, handling, handling

    Weaknesses:    paint job is not as nice at the bike itself, but that is a lot to take on anyway

    Bottom Line:   
    Lot of scryll for a HT frame, but worth every nickel. Bike feels better than any hardtail I've ever ridden whether down at the jumps or street riding or trialsin monkey business. Handles beatifully in the air stable and still twitchy, angles are great and the welds are perfectall over. Huge tubes look nice and are confidence inspiring. Warranty rules. Ellsworth customer service is spot-on with everything. It'll be tought to talk me out of getting another when this one finally fails (all good things must end.)

    Ellsworth Specialist

I'd like to start using it at the local pump track, riding the 'freeride' park, and taking it to Rays in the winter but I'm having ... Read More »

    Long story short, I dislocated my shoulder and sustained a pretty large Hill-Sachs lesion which is basically a compression fracture of the humeral head and can cause instability.
