Why don't you e-mail Ellsworth (go to their contacts on www.ellsworthbikes.com) and ask then who their distributor in NZ is from there you should be able to figure out who the retailers are. EW respond well to queries, ie overnight. Hope this helps, good luck.

I think he was looking for Ellsworth Riders, rather than dealers..

Hey Whafe, if you ever cross the Tasman and come to Tasmania, bring that Dare and I'll show you some sweet trails.

Hi all

Thanks for the replies, was looking for riders, not dealers. All good, know the bikesmith dealer in NZ. They have only just got up and running.

Done loads of work in Tasmania, would be a great spot for riding, similar to NZ.

Cheers

Dude, I am contemplating getting a Dare form Clarke at Bikesmith.
I noticed you have got a Slider on the front of your Dare. How does it stack up?
The reason i ask, it that i have to use the bits i have now as i can't afford a complete new bike & i have a SPV Slider (which i really like) but wonder if it is enough for the 9" on the back.

I'll be interested in your feedback.

Cheers

Hey Deeboy

Contemplate really hardout. You will not be dissapointed with a DARE, not just saying that. It is the way sweet frame etc, handles mint. I am really pleased with the M Slider. It has taken a little to get used too, I guess the SPV has. But for the sort of riding I do, it is sweet, more FR / XC stuff, you being from NZ and all will understand that we have to pedal up hill. So the setup suits me fine. I feel it handles the 9 inches well. I have the Fox RC shock, you may well go for something different.

I would have liked to go to a Dorado, they had none in stock and they are getting up there inprice, are they really worth it for me, dont think so. This thing cost the world as it is. One day may change forks.

Sing out if you would like to have a ride or something, I will be at Woodhill this Sunday.

Great to hear we exsist

Ran into (not literally) Clark from Bikesmith, was good to see some Ellsworths. I also ride mainly at Woodhill. Getting back into after major operation on my shoulder, hence why I now MTB instead of motocross.

How is the MOMENT performing in our conditions?

Hope to see you ar WH at some stage, better now the weather is a little sharper, been the hell sh..t winter, weather wise....

Cheers
