Ellsworth has yet to officially name the FR 180, and you can get one for free by naming it yourself. The contest is called Name it - Win it - Ride it and the contest goes live Midnight Thursday (a matter of hours - get on it!).

 How bout some latin names?

The Ellsworth....

Volo- latin word meaning: to fly, speed, move rapidly.
Teres- latin word meaning: smooth, fine, elegant.
Velox- latin word meaning: quick, rapid, swift, fast.
Perfectus or Expletus- latin words both meaning: perfect, without flaw, complete.

Or even the opposite of their downhill "Dare" machine, the ellsworth Truth? or even the ellsworth Pure?

 WOW - The first noted design feature is a 3rd party adjustable angleset!

Ellsworth couldn't come up with a more important feature of their own more worthy of first mention than the headset?!!

 I don't want to a douchebag here, but Richard, it seems your articles are being posted with a significant lack of polish that's jarring against the usually great quality of articles on the front page. There are some really quite obvious (typographical) errors in a few of your articles today and you could spend a little time checking them over. For instance, the "wan't" here, and the "(link to pinkbike article)" included in the Hope 9 tooth article!

On the subject though, that's a very cool competition, glad to see a bike company looking to us like that : )

 Wow, negative props and being insulted, great to see a mature response from the PB userbase here. A few typos is one thing, but not bothering to go back and check to see where you left yourself shorthand to insert URLs? Again, I don't mean to be contentious, but I genuinely noticed a change in the quality, and after checking, realised it's because there are quite a few errors in Richard's articles, and Richard uploads a fair few things I want to read!
  • 13 3
 3lfd3wd I'm with you mate. I don't think I've ever read a PB article that hasn't been written badly. Of course the content is always interesting, but the grammar, punctuation and layout is not befitting of a bike magazine. There are articulate and intelligent people reading these articles, so a little spell checking or proof reading wouldn't go amiss. ps I'd imagine the neg propping and insults are from people who also don't take pride in the written word.

 Wait, is that a prototype or a retro bike? Ellsworth must be in the drug business. I have never seen one on the trail but yet they still seems to stay in the game somehow. I have herd they have a sick headquarters too that looks out over the ocean. I think this bike looks quite similar to the one I used in the PS2 game Downhill Domination. I think that game came out in 2003 if I remember correctly.

 It always surprises me how much hate Ellsworth when in fact they have designed and patented one of the best suspension systems out there. It design need long links to avoid pedal feedback and good pedalling efficiency, the design is more the next step forwards from FSR rather than kona single pivot. I think its a cool bike, and look how sexy that machining is on the top rocker! So on that note i think it should be called the Ellsworth rocker Or maybe the Ellsworth Spirit or Spiritus as it catches the essence of what a do it all long travel bike should do, and Spiritus is Latin for breath, which is in theme with the cockpit design.

 What I find strange is it's called a " DH proto type " yet it's been made so it climbs well ? WTF ? when was the last time you based your opinion on a DH bike by how well it climbs and if you can run 2 chain rings? sorry nut I find this totally laughable

 He mentioned "the cockpit of the bike." Accoring to wikipedia..... " cockpit or flight deck is the area, usually near the front of an aircraft, from which a pilot controls the aircraft" To me that perfectly describes this bike. Your bike IS AN AIRCRAFT. And that is the most important part of the bike to itself and to the rider. When you are in the cockpit, you are in control. Your mission is to take flight, whether it is soaring off a drop or flying downhill. The Ellsworth Cockpit is the most meaningful and appropriate name to portray the drops, the jumps, the hills, and the flights it masters.

Otherwise I'd just call it the Ellsworth Prototype. Simple enough and self-explanitory.

PS. Ellsworth. I've never had a nice bike. And I'd really appreciate this bike beyond belief.

Ride on.

 An interrupted, steep, seat tube only has a place on a dh bike. And as a dh bike, the geo seems too steep. So what is this really designed for ?
  • 2 2
 I think it's designed for being mediocre at all types of riding. IMO that's what happens anytime a company comes out with a do-it-all bike.

 a sick name for the the new 180 fr bike could be be the "ellsworth DRIVA FR"... and "DRIVA" is cool because it could be taken as english but also its it means "power" when translated from swedish to english as a verb... you could just name it the "ellsworth driva" and drop the Fr at the end but that name would be sick cause it double means to key feature's free ride bikes are meant for " to be driven with control with lots of power go down"
  • 2 0
 Scratch it just it the ellsworth rival or some shit it doesn't really matter it's a bike and no matter what the name if its a goid bike then it will be well know no matter what its called and if rides like shit then it still doesn't really matter its just a name and no matter if its got the best name in the world if its a good ride it will sell if not then good luck

So the name I have is ---> Ellsworth HERO

Props to Jimbur on the "Ellsworth Dialer", I think that name suits the bike also.
Cool design btw, I like the oldskool vs new flair and the features, Hope to see some rad fluro colors!
  • 1 0
 Thanks man. I came up with "Dialer" after watching the video and noticing that its very adjustable. Each rider can "dial" it in to there own preferences in order to "dial" in any trail that they ride.
