    New DARE..Need you thoughts

    Hi all...........

    I have a DARE on order that I pick up whilst I am in the States in June.........Please give me your thoughts on these bikes, I have been out of Mountain biking for some 5 years, boy its changed.............So cant ride moto cross anymore, so back to mountain bikes....Brough a SpecilizedBigHit Expert, have ridden it twice, cant stand it. So have ordered a E DARE from Richards Bicycles, must say Mike has been way helpful, great service thus far, considering I am in New Zealand...................Appreciate your thoughts on how this bike will go etc........Cheers

    I have an '03 DARE and absolutely LOVE it. Obviously it's primarily a DH Rig, but it pedals very well and is a great climber (all things considered). I run the ROMIC with a Manitou Dorado and have had great results thus far.

    I give it two thumbs up... Ride to live - live for the Ride!

    Appreciate your thoughts, main thing for me is that it climbs ok, or better than most full sus bikes, they all say they do, but in practise, well say no more. Hard waiting for a bike, sends me round the bend.

    I have not gone for Dorado forks, purely because of constant maintenance needed, have gone for Boxxer World Cups, read many not so good reviews on them, but reliability I feel they are very good...Thoughts????

    Cheers
