Turner DHR ramblins
People still ask me about this frame so now I have a quick response.
It looks like this

Thank you for reminding me that I...
A) Want a true DH bike really, really badly...especially this one...
B) Am too fucking broke to make this happen right now."I knew in an instant that the three dollars I had spent on wine would not go to waste."

good read. who knew reading a bike review could be so much fun? sounds like a super fun bike."A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles."

And again, THIS is the reason I want my trail bike to have a 12.5-13.0" bottom bracket. If a bike with 8" of travel rides this well with a 13.5" BB w/DH rubber I want a 6" bike that sits roughly at the same place (sagged) or even lower (gasp!).

Sounds like a great bike, but the price is well beyond my means/ability.
Also, put some gloves on, hippy.

LBS told me today it looks like they got their hands on an XL DW DHR frame, so....
....budget DH'ers looking for a quality ride might be interested in buying my 2009 Silver DHR, size Lg. Comes with your choice of either a brand new DHX 5.0, or RC4. Also comes with Turner seapost clamp! And prolly the chopped 27.2 Thomson stem. And whatever spring you want, from 350 to 550 lb/in. Turners = one of the few brands you can buy used & get solid warranty support.
thx woo for the emails that helped with my decision.

edit to add: now that I think about it, pretty sure I recall hearing that the RC4 does not fit round tube DHRs due to interference near the rear linkage with the spring retainer...but there are fixes for that if needed. I think Fox has a clip that shims teh retainer farther up the shaft.
