Strength:

have to confess a bais on my part--I'm a member of the Ellsworth Race Team, but this is a no BS review.
Light weight, killer stability and handling, beautiful execution.

Weakness:

Not everyone has one yet.

I love this bike. As it is built, it weighed in a EXACTLY 19 POUNDS yesterday. I've been riding it for about two years and it has never let me down. Stable handling in all situations. You cannot go wrong with this rig.

Strength:

where do I start....strong, light, climber, pretty, exclusive, inspirational....

Weakness:

No longer in the Ellsworth lineup.

I really enjoy riding this bike. It fits me great and has never let me down.


Pertaining to the previous 'revieweree', Nathan, I was curious if your friend recently purchased the bike and if it was new (2004 did not have the Sub-22 in the line up and I don't think 2003 either); therefore, his frame would have been atleast 3 years old at time of purchase. If not new then I would have to agree with Ellsworth by not replacing the frame. The warranty is non-transferable.

Nathan   [Aug 01, 2004]
Strength:

A very beautiful and light frame

Weakness:

VERY VERY POOR Warranty from Company. Based on this fact alone, I don't think that I will ever purchase an Ellsworth!

A friend of mine bought the Sub 22 frame which had a crack in the headtube (manufacturer's defect). They claim that they have a warranty, but will not back up their product and replace it. I was considering buying a Truth Frameset, but once I heard how they handle customer service, I would never give this company any business. BE WARNED!! Ellsworth ISN'T WORTH IT!!
