Well for that price range and what you say you ride, Union Cadet DLX's sound good. If I were to get Drakes I'd want to spend at least $200 to make sure that I got something good. If you can find some last year 390's, Forces, or Formulas that would be even better.
I would agree that five or so years ago Drakes were mediocre. But it seems like the company has gone through some restructuring and a Forum-esque makeover. Their team also has definitely gotten some big names as of late. Normally I could care less, Nima Jalai rides Artec and he's gosh darn sick. But with riders like DCP, Huot, Levac, Waite, and Matilla, they can't be as bad as they used to be.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
