Hello, I am thinking about picking up a new Beta RR 390 for pre running and maybe a few desert races. I don't see to many Beta bikes running but think 390 might work out well? I would be in the 50 and up class and maybe race Vegas to Reno and the Norra 1000, just want to race some desert on a bike before I get to old:D Anyone else have information about the Beta bikes?
Thanks.

Purvines racing ran Betas up until 2016, they ran BITD and AMA west hare scrambles and Natl H&H, (maybe other series, I'm not sure), and Beta was the official bike of BITD for a year or so, IIRC.
Never ridden one, but they look like very high end, high quality bikes.

Thanks everyone for the info:) I did go with the Beta 390, so far with 20 miles on it, WOW what a great bike.
I like it much better than the 520 I had, much easier to ride and handle, the 2018 in my opinion is a much updated bike.
