Official Bike Partner - Advocacy
Advocacy is important to us and Ellsworth will partner with us as we support our advocacy initiatives… one lucky person will win a Roots CX frame and fork!
“Since 1991, Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles has been designing, handcrafting, and most importantly, RIDING bikes. Mountain bikes, road bikes, Cyclocross bikes and commuter bikes – you name it, we create it AND ride it.
Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles are unique, award winning and the American craftsmanship has been compared to a work of art. Although very flattering (we must say), we just design and handcraft bikes to create the ULTIMATE rider experience. From the moment the first sketch is drawn, to the final product arriving at our Independent Bike Dealers, we always have three key design imperatives driving the end result: Energy Efficiency—for climbing, speed and acceleration; Ride Quality—incredible handling, traction and control; and Reduced Rider Fatigue—for sustained physical performance. Ellsworth riders simply go further, faster, using less energy.”
For 2010, Ellsworth will be offering the Roots in our traditional white with grey accents. Ellsworth first introduced the dedicated Cyclocross Roots in 1996 with a drop bar and specific geometry for Cyclocross that captured drop bar efficiency with off road handling. With that, the Roots was born and the rest is history. The legacy of the Ellsworth Roots was written as it began racing across the US at Cyclocross Nationals, qualifying for the US National Team and racing the circuit throughout Europe. Roots gets stronger with age and the Roots is now built with a Rare Earth Carbon rear end and an SST Aluminum front end.
