It was not easy to make this decision. After hours spent reading came hours of discussion, which resulted in picking the Top Ten. Now we want to present you the winner.
We were searching for a name that would fit the character and application of this frame. We were searching for associations with the freedom of shredding down the mountains and touching nature.

For each one of us, those riding bikes, different words have different meanings. Many times, the meaning of a word is a sum of one’s life experience and personal character. For all of us this meaning will be definitely influenced by the hundreds of miles spent on the trails.
Sometimes we celebrate the freedom of choice when picking the right track or enjoy how the wind is blowing in our backs. Sometimes riding is a cure helping us to recover after a hard week at work, and soon becomes our addiction. Sometimes riding helps us to hear the primal call of the nature and come back to the roots as far as possible from the city jungle.
We want our new frame to help riding like that. We know the decision we made will not please everyone. But this is our choice and we hope that you can respect this. The winning name is ROOTS
and the first one who posted this name and won the prize is Gmancool99
Congratulations from Pinkbike and Dartmoor-Bikes! The Wish Pro complete bike will be sent to the winner before and of April.
The meaning of ROOTS
for us sounds like getting back to nature. With mountain tracks full of roots. With woods and big trees drawing their strength from their roots. That is the place where we want to meet you. No matter if you will come there with a new Dartmoor Roots frame or any other bike. The most important is that we are all the part of the mountain biking world
.Ride Your Way!
