    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Need feedback on 303 Dh!

    Hey Guys and Girls,

    I have ordered a new 303 and should have it by July sometime. I am wondering how of you who them have been liking them? How does dust / dirt effect the rail system? how does washing the bike down go? (No Power Washing) Does the suspension creek or make any noise once you get some rides on it? Or does it stay pretty quiet? Is it hard to jump? Does it corner well? Any info you guys can provide is appreciated.

    Please show pics of your 303 as well! Action pics too if you have any!

    I will be running mine on a FOX DH40RC2 fork.

    Thanks very much for your time! I look forward to hearing from you all! Have a nice riding season!
    Ellsman1 soon to be a Yetiman!
    Currently riding an 05 Ellsworth Dare w. Dh40RC2

    Cool I was not aware of this site.

    As an owner of a 303 with something like 60 000' of vert on it (in just 2 weeks!) here are my main findings (not that i am good at analysing **** so all of this might be very subjective):

    Pluses:

    I instantly felt good on it!
    Pedals really really well
    Corners well, actually really well I think
    Easy to hold a nasty line
    A lot of travel "depth" despite the roughness
    Well balanced in the air

    Minuses:

    Greasing and cleaning the rails is easy but still a pita
    Not very plush at all, no very glued to the ground (nowhere near my old cuervo)
    Tends to kick me if I am not well positionned on the bike while hitting a fast hit
    Some will say heavy at 13.75 pounds stock. With a ti spring and full ti bolt kit it is more like 12.9 lbs now.

    Overall I really like it. It think it's a great race bike.
