For the benefit of look-at-me big word unfunny engineer guy

What I wrote:



"I wasn't there this year, but I did the same thing to about fifty different bikes and forks when I was at InterHell last year. I also like the "stand on one side of the bike, grab one side of the bars and press down on the crank" test. It's amazing how much you can make a bike or component flex when you don't care about safely riding it after you're done with your "test." Science, dude."




What look-at-me big word unfunny engineer guy wrote:

"Inorite, Charlie? Because the FOS,fatigue,S-N curve,failure criteria, plastic deformation limit and their respective quantitative values were produced, and thus compared to known limits for the particular material and geometry, all during your simple observation of deflection, right? I mean, it's science.

You never cease to entertain, like the village idiot, with your petulant and arrogant ignorance."



I think we had a misunderstanding, look-at-me big word unfunny engineer guy, and I think this video will help you to better understand what I wrote:

This is why you go to Interbike

What everyone's been waiting for

Do you remember sitting around with all your bro's at the shop, drinking beers after the workday ended and wondering "when is Ellsworth finally going to release a carbon Dare?"

Today your questions have been answered:


Due to the patented ICT linkage design the engineers at Ellsworth weren't able fit in the 15" BB height that consumers were demanding, but they believe the 14.9" BB is a good compromise.

Podium worthy


David Trummer should get a medal just for riding this thing. Unrideable.
