The bike and I popped our cherries at the Mosquito Valley water reserve trails near Williamsport. I did the blue, green and 7mile trail. Needless to say the bike climbs well and going back down the mountain was a ball!! The bike is seriously limited by her rider. I was able to catch some air over the water diversion ditches. Everything had a light dusting of snow and if you got onto the single tracks, you sunk in the frost. I could not believe how the bike soaked up the bumps,allowing me with zero experience to bump over some trees and rocks. The remote lockout on the front shock was awesome and allowed me to transition to the up hill parts gaining all the power I could from my peddling. Now all I have do is gain some skill, so I can ride her to her limit. I will post pics as soon as I figure out how!
The safes a fixture in the living room. Had aspirations of taking it upstairs, but it was all three of us could do to get it in the house. She got the Ellsworth at Campus cycle and fly shop in Lewisburg. The owner had it built up after trying one out at the Interbike show. He built it for himself, but let it go. I guess the nice thing about owning a bike shop is that you can always find another one for yourself.
