Beyond Words - The Ooohhhh-Aaaahhh Ride

Well, I rode the Ooohhh-Aaahhh bike today on some sweet single-track and I must say that the Ellsworth Truth (25-lb. rough draft version) has a ride quality that is beyond words. I was in awe riding it over the last 2-days on trails in the Spokane area.

This bike provides the smoothest, butt-friendly ride ever...let's just say that I can recall very few (like one) full-sussy bike that was this smooth. In addition to smoothness the suspension is essentially BOB free and provides amazing traction up ulta-steep, super-grunt climbs. So it works perfectly - dare I say it works exactly as advertised (something of a rarity in these days of over-hyped advertising).

Now that I have gently broken in this bike (180-miles of thrash testing) I am itching to do ride comparison with a Fisher HiFi 29er...I'm just not sure how to do that without a Fisher HiFi...hmmm...anyone want to lend me a HiFi to use for some gentle, thrash testing?

The Ooohhhh-Aaahhhh Factor

Here is the "rough draft" version of another "I-must-own-and-ride-every-bike-ever-made" obsession...maybe this one will end that...

The ride? One word - Unbelievable!!! And this is the rough draft version?
