    Which BB for Dare frame 04/05?

    I have a Ellsworth Dare 04 frame with a worn out Raze Face 73x118 Evolve DH bottom bracket. I have now ordered a 05' Dare frame. I use a single ring set up in front with a Evil13 chainguide, and the swingarm is of the freeride type.

    Which BB size do you guys out there use for your Dare frame? 73x118? x115? x113?

    thanks

    On my 04 Dare, I had Saint cranks and bottom bracket, was way strong, never had any problems. Just got a new bike, have gone for Race Face Diabolus DH Cranks. Will be interesting to see how these go.

    Hi There

    What do you think it is worth? Am not sure what Clark has on it. I
    could put a new Dorado on it from my VP Free and get a new Fox 40.

    I dont think it is too exspensive, I know what it cost me........What
    are you wishing to pay for it, I know you will not take the piss etc,
    what are your thoughts. I am not stressing to sell it. But would be
    interested if you were keen, least I know it will go to a good home

    No probs just keen on those parts if it had been a smaller frame would go for the lot, have you gone VP Free on us, how could you ive up the Dare for a SC shocked!!

    Just kidding nice machines! I think he has an asking price 7.5 - 8k without fork pretty steep Id have thought even in as good a nick as it is not many people in market for a large DH but ya never know it is a beautiful beast.
