Er, aren't both the Ellsworths freaks - running a 5" travel MTB with XC parts including road pedals is perverse. Least the second owner has the sense to put flatties on.

Ignore everything about that bike for a second and realise the owner thought a good place for that snap was propped up against a gravestone.

If your bike looks like that common sense probably isn't your strong point.

It's a tiny frame for a short rider who seems to have a relatively long torso, and who seems to be trying to get more than an inch of drop to the handlebars. There really aren't that many options for such a rider if they don't want to go with smaller wheels.

@mrfish,

Ellsworth Epiphany is a XCish type of trail bike, 130mm front fork + M970 groupset is considered a norm, nothing freakish. The only thing worth mentioning are the road pedals, reason being it's only ridden on-road here in Tokyo.

Wonder what happens to the rear brake when they turn the handlebars.

Sorry... Can't decide if this bike is unbelievable cool or really hideous.

Saw this on FB. Apparently, this guy has back and/or neck issues and set it up like this (temporarily) so that he can get back on the road.

Riser bars and Dura-Ace wheels. That's just plain wrong.

Totally a freak. I mean, come on. Who goes to all that trouble and cost to bring your groceries home and keep you butt dry, while totally screwing up the weight balance and handling.
This bike definitely needs a titanium or carbon fiber low-rider set of front racks and panniers.

Oh, and that Special Ed almost starts to look fun, until you realize what you hands would have to do if you had any hopes of braking!
