Cedric Gracia On Oval Chainrings - Interview
@WAKIdesigns: yes, good advice for sure. try using a power meter (Stages or similar) and see your power output whilst climbing, very interesting / revealing...not what we may assume as mountain bikers tacking a technical climb

First Look: Ellsworth Rogue Sixty - Press Camp 2016
I worked for the old EW distributor in the UK. Did lots of custom builds, usually Thomson / Easton finishing kit and xtr with king rubbed handbuilts. Not many broke during my time there ( but the old truth and joker certainly had issues). Most common repair was replacing chainstay pivot bearings which could have a limited lifetime in UK wet/mud. We had wonky frames arrive time to time but always dealt with before escaping into the wild. New bike looks great.

First Look: Ellsworth Rogue Sixty - Press Camp 2016
Always found the old dare, moment, rogue, epiphany to be top class for pedalling efficiency and active braking. Geometry always at odds with given specification (steeper ha and tall bbh) and earlier models 'fragile' especially swingarm and rockers New bike looks like a massive improvement now that proper engineering is being done by carbon fibre company owners, rather than ' artisan' Tony EW

@chaserider: Technically it's not a Horst pivot (the patent was very specific to pivot location vs. rear axle) but yes a four-bar with chainstay pivot.

cheers! I believe these parts washers are sold in the USA under the "Chem Free" brand which is actually Rozone's parent company

these used to be known as "skull crackers" due to the large number of people killed riding them in the "old days". as the pedals are fixed to the wheel, any error would throw the rider over the top of the main wheel straight into the ground head first :(
