    Long live the DHR!

    LOL! I wonder how many DHR owners have moved on to newer stuff? I was walking around Sea Otter last month and although the new DH bikes look amazing, I don't have a strong compulsion to switch (I do want a new, light trail bike though).

    Anyway, I also scored a wheelset for $50 so I put single-ply tires on them for my non-park riding. Here she sits at 36.8 lbs (was 35.5 lbs with a DHX-Air shock but that proved to be a crappy set-up).

    Guys, your DHR's are so sick. I wish I'd bought one before they were discontinued.

    They are works of art.

    I'm currently riding the dhr that I would sell if someone really wanted one badly enough.


    That video is 4 years old. I guess they needed 'content' between world cups and endurpo world series races.

    Thanks!

    I would love to buy it kidwoo but I think I'd have a real problem convincing my wife that I need a DH bike.

    Just out of interest what size and colour is it. In your review you are riding a medium raw but that's not the frame you have now is it?

    How much would you be looking for?

    "no I can't do it, but how much is it anyway?"


    Awesome


    Yeah that raw one I did the review on served me very very well. It was literally one of the first runs of that frame and it went 6 hard years before developing a fatigue crack. I bought one of the cheap green clearance frames last fall. It's got a scratch on the downtube so it's pretty much worthless . But certainly less than what I paid for it if you're serious. Complete bike would be a decent bit under 2k. You in the states?

    It's a medium.

    Awesome
    Heh, heh. I can dream

    I'm in Australia, which would make it a tad more tricky but not impossible.

    Plus the Australian $ is worthless at the moment.

    I'm still trying to think of ways I can come up with the money but too be honest my next purchase in a years time was going to be a Santa Cruz 5010 which is probably a better choice for a 46 year old dad to be riding

    You can use age as an excuse. I'm 48 this year... I tell the boss/wife I need a bigger bike for safety.

    You're right age was just an excuse.

    I'm getting more rowdy the older I get although I suffered frozen shoulders on both and was not doing much for 18 months.
