Yes, I searched it first. Are there really that few people who ride them or have an opinion about them? They seem kind of like a Langster to me (meaqning of course a lot of people wouldn't like it 'cause it's aluminum, or just 'cause it's Langster-like). Seems a little less expensive, better components. And that exciting "cement" color...Wow. Anyhow, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

my friend rides the Felt Curbside...i'm not much on aluminum frames but he seems to like his bike...my other friend happens to ride a Langster too...i've tried out both their bikes and they ride about similar...if i remember correctly the Felt was a little bit twitchier but they both had that weird aluminum stiff response...
I like my Dispatch. It's just a fun bike to ride. The chainring, freewheel (and thus chain) and stem had to be replaced on mine before it worked for me.
You're right, some people won't like it because it's like a Langster and it's aluminum. I don't understand this at all, but then again I'm probably a little different than a lot of folks here. I'm just a mountain bike rider that got tired of riding his converted singlespeed hardtail on the road.
Before I bought my Dispatch I rode the Langster, the Kona Paddy Wagon, the Curbside, the Swobo Del Norte and a few CX bikes.
