    Anyone wanna post a link to DW's advice on setting up a CCDB on the DHR?
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Hey guys a couple of questions? I am 6'3" and am unsure whether to go the L or the XL. I currently ride a Cove Shocker in a L and am very happy with the reach. I measured it myself and got 16.5" but am in no way positive that is completely accurate?

    I noticed that there are people on here that are very happy with the L at 6'2" and people that are stoked with the XL at 6'4". Any help would be fantastic!

    Also, I weigh between 145 and 155lbs (I know, featherweight for height…). Am noticing some variance in spring weights. Any confirmation if I should be running a 350lbs spring?

    THanks. I am stoked to get this frame!!

    I weigh 155lbs and I'm running an Elka with a 300lbs spring. You can download the Elka MTB Application List (.pdf file) on their website which mentions that for Turner DHR spring M300x6.25x3.0 falls under 150-175lbs rider weight and M250x7.25x3.5 for 100-155lbs rider weight.

    my build

    Here's mine:

    Yay me but I'm still adjusting from an all mountain bike (2008 Giant Reign X1). For the most part this new bike, straight from the shop has been really awesome, I'm really happy. However, I'm noticing a handling issue when leaving the ground and going airborne. I used to feel this way too when I first got my Giant. We eventually fixed this handling issue by rolling the handle bars back and moving some of the chips on the headset from top to bottom for more height. However, for the lack of better terms, there is too much room still in the cockpit and it causes me to drop an elbow and fly off in the wrong direction.

    Here's what I've done so far with the DHR:

    moved 2 chips from the top of the stem to the bottom (only one left on top now)

    rolled the handle bars back as far as they'd go without losing height

    scooted the seat as far forward as possible, without exceeding max.

    So I still feel like maybe I'm missing a tad bit of height. I'm curious about the following:

    the handlebars are way wider than the giant's, should I swap/ride see how it feels? trim the bars i'm running on the dhr?

    can i add more chips? im worried about about putting too much leverage on the fork if I scoot the chips around too much.

    are there other stems that would bring the bars closer than the easton havoc direct mount does?

    i guess the bottom line is I'm convinced I want more height due to past experience. more height, not a lot but more but I dont want to damage my bike and I want to stay safe too. sorry to post this here but I'm a new member and I cant start my own thread yet....

    How tall are you and what size is the frame? I'd be careful about raising the bars too much. The DHR is noticeably slacker than your previous Giant and when the bars get too high it will make it harder to keep the front weighted in turns. Of course, the wider bars also bring your weight forward a bit.

    I understand you have past experience with the issue of cockpit size, but I'm not understanding the relationship of bar height to dropping an elbow and jumping crooked. Without knowing more it sounds like a technique issue rather than an equipment problem.

    FWIW, I'm 5'10", I've got about 18mm of spacers under my top crown, a 45mm stem, and 29.5" wide bars. Feels pretty good now, but I'm still playing with bar height a bit. Thinking about moving them a little lower. To me, the key is the relationship between feet and hands, so a lower BB, like the DHR, needs lower hands to keep me feeling balanced.

    Don't worry too much about the number of spacers under the crown. Peaty doesn't skimp on his:

    I'm 5'9" and its a medium. I realize it may be technique but because I have to fight to accomplish what used to be 2nd nature is frustrating...i then get less aggressive and more reluctant because I'm basically out of control, haha. My attack position then feels over exaggerated in order to compensate for this cockpit setup. So you'll see me practically kissing the handle bars to be in attack position. From take off to landing as well, its also like my center of gravity shifts too far front to back and lacks control because my arms are often too straight, making upper body strength not as effective as it could be. Make sense? I know I'm just a small adjustment from comfort and control...then back to shredding i go...

    also that pic you posted, is that a dual crown? if so, that was kind of what I was wondering (purchase some more spacers and try a couple more type thing) unless there was somethign I could purchase that goes directly under the DM stem....?

    This bike is just sex on wheels! So nice.

    What is the chain protection that you are using? I am looking at moving away from the ol' tube setup. Are you running cleartape under this to make it easier to remove when time to replace. Does the bike run nice and quiet with this setup?

    Thanks

    Hey Charvey. I noticed you are running an Angleset. I plan on running one as well. Is there a specific model that is needed for the DHR? What model are you running? Thanks.

    That's a Boxxer in that pic. I don't know of anything commercially available that would go directly under the DM stem.

    Trying to get some parts sorted out for mine (Cannot wait!!). How is everyone doing with the Anglesets. I noticed a few in this thread. Any of the popping and/or loosening issues that people seem to be having?

    Any thoughts on this as the other option if not the Zero Stack?

    Quick question: what's the DW DHR bearing code? I assume all 8 are the same kind, right?
    Are the bearings available @enduro?

    Thanks

    Quick question for the shorties. I'm just a tad over 5'6" and have been running a small round tube DHR for a couple years am going to get a new DW frame. I'm thinking about getting a medium and am asking if anybody else who used to run a small round tube has some ride time on a medium, any comments would be great!

    The smalls are miniscule.

    See if you can get a ride in on a medium somewhere. Like I've said before, due to the slacker head angle and same wheelbase of the new ones (compared to the round tubes) the cockpit is actually a little smaller.

    yeah yeah i know, i've ridden 2 mediums but i haven't ridden a small. the medium felt really similar to my small so as long as I can keep the bar height close to the same Im sure it will be great, cant wait to get it built and ridden.

    The more I ride my DHR the more I love it. It is super stable when it is steep and super plush. It's like falling on a pillow every time.

    How much slacker headangle, have you measured it?
    How the Cane Creek feels on the Turner?

    nice ride! I like the black for sure, but i'm biased too.

    But that looks super slack compared to everyone else.

    benniturner, what settings are you using on your CCDB? I just built my DHR this week, and rode it yesterday. based on inputs from Malcolm at CC, and my own general experience w/ setting up the CCDB, i started off with the following settings: LSC = 14 clicks in, LSR = 16 clicks in, HSC = 1.0 turns in, HSR = 1.5 turns in. THe bike felt pretty good on that first ride, but on my next ride I'm going to decrease the HSC to 0.8 turns in, and reduce the LSR to 15 clicks in.

    I weigh 193 lbs / 88 kgs without helmet/pads/shoes. using 400 lb steel spring for now.

    Really like the 63 HA on anything steepish. I have the bar height pretty low, which helps keep that front tire carving on the flatter terrain.

    pics: too lazy right now. imagine something that is all black with gold and silver bits.

    Anybody on a small 2011 have any seat buzz issues?

    I have an 08 DHR & I had to slide the seat forward & raise it a bit higher than I wanted. I even cut an arc in the seat to lower it a bit.

    this is a set-up thread, so try starting a new thread with some specific questions. the geometry + very low center of gravity + the DW link + Turner zerk-fitted pivots are some of the reasons this frame is different than a lot of other frames.

    Starting a seperate thread would be best. However you can also check out this month's issue of Bike Magazine and last month's issue of Decline. In addition Mtb Action is currently testing the bike so keep your eyes out for an article. The article will answer all your questions and the rave reviews will seal the deal for you.

    Instead of raising your seat more than you would like you can run a bmx seat. I ran a S&M thin seat on my small '08 and it got rid of the seat buzz and let me keep my seat height where i wanted it, it's about 3/4" shorter than the WTB on my trail bike.

    This is the seat on my '12 DHR.

    airwreck i went with a medium. compared to my '08 small the cockpit is very similar, bar and seat height are identical but the DW is about 3/4" longer in front which is want i wanted. I only notice the extra length when seated, when i'm in riding position the bike feels nearly identical to the single pivot. I will have a more in-depth review after next weekend's 3 day trip to N* but after 2 quick laps on a local trail i have to say that the DW is a better all-round bike than the older version.

    I have the same seat, I had to push it forward on the rails & notch the back & it's still a bit high. While it's ok most of the time I would prefer the seat a bit lower, I have a long torso & short legs.

    I think I read somewhere this issue was addressed on the new DHR so the seat can be lowered a bit but I can’t find it so I thought I'd ask around.

    Anyhow I ordered a SM 2011 fro Go-Ride so I will get back on topic & post pics & specs when it's finished.

    HSC = 1.0 turns in
    HSR = 1.5 turns in

    Like other DW bikes I've ridden, the DHR benefits from having relatively little HSC and LSC damping, but I found that going too low gave pedal strikes in unwarranted situations; OTOH, going too high made the rear end feel spiky (duh).

    Also found that a 15 mm spacer under crown (with Answer direct mount stem, which has no drop and is similar to many DM stems), with a ZS headset, gave a nice compromise between keeping the bars low enough for the turns, but (just) high enough to feel right coming into jumps etc.

    Shame it's got to act as a coat rack until next season due to rotator cuff injury, can't wait to enjoy it though.

    Hi pround owners of the DHR,

    I was hoping I could join your ranks after buying a brand new frame off someone at pinkbike, and it was like Christmas came early when I pulled it out of the box after it just got delivered. The frame was truly beautiful, a raw, cnc-ed and wielded piece of art.

    But after dropping it off at my LBS to have it built up, the mechanic got back to me and said when the shock was removed, the rear-end wasn't free-moving at all - far from it. He said it might be a manufacturing defect, and the frame wasn't straight and true. I told him to try greasing the pivot bearings to see if it helped, because as far as I know the frame could have been sitting around for quite a bit, but it doesn't look good.

    Did anyone of you have the problem of a seizing rear-end when you received the frame? Mine is definitely a recalled and strengthened one as it has the extra gusset at the top-tube/head tube junction, but it still has the decals instead of being laser-etched, so it might be from an older batch.

    And now I'm worried sick, and it only makes matters worse when the mechanic/owner of shop tells you about the bad news with a glee - like it served me right for not buying a Mondraker or Transition frame from him instead.

    Sorry for the long post, but I hope you guys can give me some advice - would be best if someone from Turner can help out for a bit too?

    Thanks a lot.

    Kenneth

    No worries at all with mine.
    It's normal to have decals on a raw DHR, laser etching only comes with the ano finish.
    Send an email to Greg and you'll know why you are not riding a Mondraker or Transition!
    Good luck.

    Have you verified this yourself?

    If the shop only wants to work on stuff they sell i would take it somewhere else, or even better start doing your own work.

    My DHR has a point beyond full extension where it feels like it binds but it is only when moved past what full shock extension would be. Lubing the bearings yourself is also supper easy.

    Are you sure it was "NEW", any signs it was built up?

    Mine was ok out of the box, no problems cycling the swing arm W/O shock.

    Turner's warranty should cover a second owner, give them a call.

    But after dropping it off at my LBS to have it built up, the mechanic got back to me and said when the shock was removed, the rear-end wasn't free-moving at all - far from it. He said it might be a manufacturing defect, and the frame wasn't straight and true. I told him to try greasing the pivot bearings to see if it helped, because as far as I know the frame could have been sitting around for quite a bit, but it doesn't look good.

    Did anyone of you have the problem of a seizing rear-end when you received the frame? Mine is definitely a recalled and strengthened one as it has the extra gusset at the top-tube/head tube junction, but it still has the decals instead of being laser-etched, so it might be from an older batch.
    And now I'm worried sick, and it only makes matters worse when the mechanic/owner of shop tells you about the bad news with a glee - like it served me right for not buying a Mondraker or Transition frame from him instead.

    Sorry for the long post, but I hope you guys can give me some advice - would be best if someone from Turner can help out for a bit too?

    Thanks a lot.

    Kenneth

    Are the pivots properly torqued? See DHR overhaul guide here:
    http://www.turnerbikes.com/011/tech/...R_overhaul.pdf


    Did the box appear damaged during shipping?

    If your frame has that gusset between the top/ down tube, then it was not a part of the first batch which was recalled. Additionally, the gusset at the down/ head tube should be convex. This gusset on the recalled frames was concave. I had one of the first batch frames and it did crack... the warrantied replacement was not a modified frame, it was brand new.

    +1 for decals on raw frames, etched for ano frames

    Like the other guys said... just get in touch with the warranty department at Turner, they won't waste any time getting you some answers. Good luck!

    The mechanic concluded that it might be the o-rings that are causing the friction, and after contacting Turner about it, this is what I got back from Greg:

    "Hi Kenneth,
    You will feel resistance in the suspension and it is caused by the O-rings.
    There is a break in period. Ride and enjoy.
    Have a great weekend.

    Greg"

    So now I have the bike built up, it seems normal enough when I sit and bounce on it for a bit, but I have to back out the rebound damping completely to have it return to full travel in a moderate (slightly slow) speed.

    I haven't tried it out in a trail yet, but the adjustability of the shock rebound seems to be compromised.

    Do your DHRs loosen up after a few runs, and is there a discernible "break-in" period for you guys?

    Even so, I love how my ride's looking now. Will post some pics soon.

    Just paid for my large DHR with raw front and black ano rear. couldn't afford a new one so I picked up a used one of pinkbike. Should be here by next week. Going to be a slow build though since its snowing here and i want to save for new wheels and such over the winter so might not be done til january or so. might be hard to look at it for that long unbuilt.

    So if anyone has some tuning advice for someone who is 190 lbs with a RC4 who likes a lively bike then feel free to post them.

    Hi there folks, I'm just really close to ordering my new DHR. I have a M Sunday and I'm 6'1" tall, i was wondering which way i had to go, M size or L size, so if any of you ever had a Sunday (or not) and has the same issue deciding which size to get, please help me, I have also owned a Mongoose Boot'r L and I liked how that cockpit felt, the problem is that geometry charts for each of the bikes mentioned before are not compatible t each other (some use effective top tube and others use stack and reach) and i don't know how to make the comparison myself with those numbers. Also I'm the first in my country to get a 2012 DW DHR so can't test no bike. Thanks, any help is appreciated. proud of your builds BTW. Cheers.

    Third that, I am just under 6'1 and tried a medium around a parking lot and it felt way too cramped. I like smaller bikes but this one would have not even been fun to ride. My knees hit the handle bars and such.

    I just bought a large so I am hoping it fits.

    Also, according to the turner site. the range for the large is 5'10 - 6'1 so you should be asking if you should go L or XL

    Had some wet riding in October, so I made a flexible fender from the cover of a 3 ring binder. the natural curve of the plastic keeps it pointing toward the seatpost, so it doesn't ever flop down and buzz on the tire. very low profile, so no change in mud clearance. works well.

    Give me your man card right now. I'm clipping the corner.


    Three more clips and we confiscate the bike.

    Never forget the difference between author and consultant.

    You authored that fender.

    Is there a reason turner specs the DHR with a 34t front? is the suspension optimized for a 34t?

    Just curious because I will be buying a new chainring for my build anyway so I was curious which size to get.

    srsly though, i saw the various posts on this thread and others painting a picture in which a DHR fender was some sort of difficult-to-achieve goal, so on a whim I made one in 5 mins that works perfectly well and has no clearance issues or mud build up.

    i don't need a fender but was just curious where all the concerns were coming from.

    i'm curious like that.

    You know this is the internet right? Where downhillers are not men with upper body strength willing to take chances with conviction, but rather delicate flowers who cringe not only in the sunlight of reality but also at the mere sound of a dremel......

    you are waxing poetic.

    have you bought a 29er yet? looks like a snow free winter for us, so add to the quiver yo.

    why would I? I dont have any time to make some childish couple stop e-fighting, I want to mind in my own business. I think that when I, and all of the people subscribed to this thread; receive an alert of new Reply is to see some amazing and drool-making build of a DW-Link DHR, or at least some interesting chat regarding the after-mentioned bike. Stop it, NOW.

    and BTW, thanks in advance for your comprehension and agreement.

    The mystery unravels. After going for a few rides hoping the suspension would run-in (which the binding did disappear), I found the rear shock bolt coming loose when I got home from the trail today, and tightening it re-introduced the binding.

    Puzzled, I removed the shock and measured the width of the shock eyelets (as Greg of Turner Bikes suggested if the binding continues), and I discovered that they measured 21.8mm instead of the correct width of 22.2mm. So the reason my brand new DHR binds in its travel is because Turner fitted the wrong shock eyelets to the shock.

    And now the inner face of the shock mounts of BOTH the front triangle and the upper DW link/shock cradle is scored so bad that feeling the deep ruts in the aluminum with my fingers make me cringe. My new frame had no more than 3 rides on it. Guys check the width of your bushings if your DHR is having a slight binding.

    I've emailed Greg about this, and I don't know what he's going to do for warranty.

    Since I'll be needing new eyelets/bushings anyway, I'm thinking the needle bearings from RWC. Has anyone tried them before, and do them need any proprietary tools to install?

    I'm supposed to care what a supposedly grown man throws a tantrum over when it's not a picture of a pretty bicycle and ONLY a picture of a pretty bicycle........on an INTERNET FORUM? Quit your whining you little baby. Frorider and have both shared more setup advice on these bikes than you possibly could have in your massive 8 post history. And newsflash: We know each other. You can also unsubscribe to a thread and just check back periodically. You have internet access?

    That honestly shouldn't make that much of a difference. Something DT told me to do before I even got my frame was to remove the reducer hardware, and sand out that orange coating on the inside of the DU bushing. It allows it to pivot a little easier without backing out or tightening the bolt. Try that first just because it's something that's easy to do. Bearings are obviously a superior setup but this is something you can try first.

    I wouldn't even worry about the front triangle mount. The shock barely moves at all there.

    0.4mm difference is way less than the gap left with the correctly sized spacers on lots of frames I've had. You should see the gap on my specialized sx frame. I actually grabbed another set of spacers to put in the shock it's so bad.

    Good thing you can't hear creaks over the internet.


    I never sent you any those photos from the GRT. Here's a good one since john's head is right under your butt.
