2011 Ellsworth Method Freeride Bike

2011 ellsworth method freeride bike   2011 Ellsworth Method Freeride Bike

A new freeride bike called the Method is launched by Ellsworth this 2011. It was named the Method by Rick B. from Spokane, Washington, the winner of the contest, “Name it. Win it. Ride it.” Rick said that the name stands for the bike’s simplicity and clean lines.

Most of all, Rick said that the bike fits the name Method because it adheres to something that works instead of following the hottest acronym or fad. All these amazing attributes are reflected by the bike models and their names and feel.

Perfectly described in a single word, the Method is the epitome of the way Ellsworth does things. The 2011 Ellsworth Method Freeride Bike is manufactured through a system that works and an application of new ways to refine it.

2011 Ellsworth Truth SST.2 Frame

2011 ellsworth truth sst 2 frame   2011 Ellsworth Truth SST.2 Frame

Packed with new amazing features, the 100mm travel Truth SST.2 from Tony Ellsworth is made even better in 2011. These new features include Ellsworth’s proprietary ICT suspension, SST.2 tubing, a lighter and stronger pivot integrated seat tube and a semi-integrated tapered head tube.

A favorite among privateer racers through the years, the Truth takes pride in its legendary performance. The ICT (Instant Center Tracking) suspension is a true four-bar design that allows the rear wheel’s virtual pivot to be always positioned somewhere beside the chain’s torque line.

What the SST.2 in the frame’s name refers to is the Superformed Seat Tube, a complex, organic-looking seat tube that integrates the mounting point for the rocker’s central pivot. Laterally stiff with well-allocated overall weight, the 2011 Ellsworth Truth SST.2 Frame is a great choice not only to XC racers but to all riders, too.
