    Does anyone know what these bikes are? Are they Rogues? I was kinda hoping for a return of the Dare.

    The Dare will come back..................... Really think it will.............. Surely if Ellsworth are getting back into sponsoring DH, they must be building a specific DH bike, not a modified Rogue..... I bet this Rogue is not permanent, the Dare will come.....

    I thought they were on Litespeeds (at least Kabush).

    The only diff between the Rogue and Dare, besides model name, is the fact that the Rogue uses formed front assembly tubing and the Dare used a fancy extrusion instead of a typical TT and DT. The suspension is exactly the same. Am I missing something?

    Take a Rogue, slack out the HT, lower the BB, etc... to world Cup DH geo and presto. Call it whatever, but the suspension is still all based on the Dare/Rogue platform.
    Round & Round.
