I rode it 550 miles each way to the event on pavement and then had a blast running right along with everyone else (everyone else trailered in). My friends asked me what machine I would pick if someone were to give one to me. I told them I would get another DR350! Sure, there are many better machines on paper. But the DR350 is just a dream at accomplishing everything I want to accomplish. Is it a magic pill for everyone? No way. But it is really great for me.
I share both Greg's and Zac's sentiments, get the DR350.
