Do you guys think I should buy a Dorado expert of ebay? Its brand new for
800$ cad.

The thing is it comes from a bikeshop in taiwan. Would that mean for any warranty I would have to send back there?

Oh and why would you kill frame bearings quicker on an enduro bike than a dh bike?

Larger loads and more of them than your average ride. Plus depending on the company some weight savings could come out of bearing selection.

I'd personally go for 40mm and 780mm bars haha but I'm just a trend follower...

haha, I was thinking of get the 780's, but seems like it would be way too wide for some of the stuff I ride, I could always get them and cut them down, and the problem for me with 40mm is I do a bit of climbing too..

Go 200 for dh

800 you mean?

My trail bike has 780 bars that I slide the grips out (lock-on with only the internal lock ring) to same width as the 800 if I’m riding somewhere faster or at the bike park. Did the same turning 760 to 780.

There's not much room in the rear triangle. If you got clearance, it'd be tight. .

Commencal Furious.

If I was looking to get a new dh bike the Commencal Supreme, Scott Gambler, and specialized Demo would all be on my short list.
