1994 ELF Doublecross 24
Extra Light Frame.(ELF) this is fast becoming a rare bike and for sure not seen at the track anymore. The Doublecross rear end makes it super stiff and forces power to the ground. i love this build.
I purchased the Frame Fork & Bars from Marvingarden here in the Museum who also happens to live right here in my hometown of Santa Barbara. This 1 has been well taken care of over the years sense its birth in Ken Pendergrafts (owner/Manufacturer of ELF) garage all those years ago in southern california. Started in 1981 making a super light and small bike for his son and his friends,the mini/jr was born. being so light the name stuck ELF(extra light frame).These guys had breakthrough products like the 6 piece blast bars,2 piece seatpost(zipback) and of course the super stiff doublecross rear end. After several good years of awesome colors and inovative ideas the busniess went under in 1998.S&M purchased there Tools and last i herd someone in france is making Elf named products..
