Get Your BAILOUT here! Wondering how YOU can benefit from the Government bailout plan? Let us know when you figure it out. Meanwhile, here’s a bailout you can have some of!

This month, Ellsworth is providing you the opportunity to bail out of your existing bike and get on the road or trail to economic recovery with a new, 100% USA Made Ellsworth MTB or road frame.

We’ll give you $700 bailout money!

Through March 30, 2009 and limited to stock on hand, send us a functional MTB or road frame and we’ll give you $700 towards any new, in stock Ellsworth MTB or road frame. We’ll be “bailing out” kids in need of bikes, so please be sure it is in good working condition.

We’ll bailout underprivileged kids by donating your old bike!

Due to the Paperwork Reduction Act, which Ellsworth supports, to get started here’s all you have to do:


Call us and get a Return Authorization # for the frame you're bailing out of (760-788-7500)

OR take it to any Ellsworth Authorized Dealer or your local bike shop and have them call
us for the RA#


Clean up and ready the frame to ship, stripped of any components you want to keep.

OR take it to any Ellsworth Dealer and have them clean and ship it to us!

Riding bikes is something we can all afford to do! It's recession proof transportation, it's fitness and recreation, and it clears the head and heart so you can stay focused and productive in difficult times.

The Ellsworth Bailout Plan is a great opportunity to Buy American and improve your own state of well being with cycling and improve the state of well being of those less privileged at the same time (you’ve heard of win/win?). Everyone can get on the trail or road and participate in the American Dream of health, fitness and transportation that is independent of the world economy and energy dependence. Buying American has never made more sense!

If you have any questions, please contact the Ellsworth Sales Office at 760-788-7500.

Terms & Conditions: The Ellsworth Economic Recovery Plan expires March 30, 2009 and cannot be combined with any other discounts or allowances. Program terms and pricing are subject to change.

Police name suspect in Zabriskie burglary

Would you buy a used bike from this man? Leopold Jay Howard is the primary suspect in the burglary of David Zabriskie's home.
Would you buy a used bike from this man? Leopold Jay Howard is the primary suspect in the burglary of David Zabriskie's home.

Salt Lake City Police officials have released the name and a description of a suspect in the burglary of David Zabriskie’s home.

Thieves struck the home of the Garmin-Slipstream rider approximately two weeks ago, while he was competing at the Amgen Tour of California. The home was cleared of nearly everything as thieves took bicycles, personal mementos and even automobiles.

Last week, police arrested Arthur Roll after they saw him leaving one of Zabriskie’s vehicles. Police have since named an additional suspect, 39-year-old Leopold Jay Howard, and issued a warrant for his arrest.

Howard is described as being 5-feet-6-inches tall, weighing 145 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. He also has a noticeable scar across the top of his nose.

Detectives think he may have dyed his hair red to avoid being recognized.

Since Roll’s arrest, some of Zabriskie's items have been recovered, including a bike, bike parts and a car. His Olympic ring and Giro d' Italia race medals have not been recovered.

Anyone with information about this case or Howard's whereabouts should call (801) 799-INFO
