    The Demo doesn't even have the chainguide setup correctly. Way at the wrong angle. Stupid specialized.

    And for guys like you that base a bike's worth soley on appearance, I'm stoked you have some options! Just do yourself a favor and never get a meaningful test ride in on a well tuned dhr.

    Chauzie,

    We don't have a problem with your opinion. We didn't say anything bad about the Demo or why the DHR is better, etc. However, you show up and start bagging on the DHR in the Turner forum. Your words: "It's like somebody from OCC chopper just took 2 straight pipes and put some welds on them and call it a bike." That's pretty rude and shows you don't really have a clue as to what went into designing that bike. I personally know Dave Turner and Dave Weagle and know how much hard work they put into making a bike that performs great. That's what's important to them and most Turner owners.

    Ultimately, this is a thread about "Set-Ups for DHRs", not a thread about "what bike do you like better than the DHR". If you want to start that thread you should do it in the general "DH" forum.

    Chauzie, let me refresh your memory:

    In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

    New DHR

    Just got my new DHR. I am really impressed with the new head-tube design. I rode my original frame for 2 months at Whistler and other downhill trails. This is without a doubt the best downhill bike I've ever had.

    Size: Lg
    Anodized black

    Does anyone know how far you can insert the seatpost into the seat tube? There are some DH trails around here that require a pedaling up a fire road. Was wondering if i can get reasonable leg extension to pedal up some of the fire roads.

    You're probably gonna need a remote adjustable post.

    -Q: What size seatpost is required?

    A: 2011 dw-link DHR's use a 30.9mm seatpost with enough length to guarantee 4" or 100mm of insertion.
    2008 DHR's and prior use a 27.2mm seatpost size.

    Nice bikes in this thread.

    What size are you running MTBAlex?

    On my XL I have roughly 7-8" of seatpost tube on the frame with another 2" below the tube before hitting the shock.

    On an XL say 5-6" of adjustment. I have a similar situation and the extra length will come in handy.

    Hey Krout,

    I'm tryign to decide if the DHR is the bike I want. I'm 5'8'' and so I'm in between a small and a medium. Now how much of the seatpost need to be in the seat tube for the seatpost to be stable and have minimal risk in wrecking the frame? an inch?

    That would be 4" minimum insertion. Email Turner, they should have the answers your looking for.

    Not sure if it helps or not, but I'm 5'7" and ride a medium with about 7" of seat post sticking out. The mediums are pretty small, there is no way I could see myself on a small.

    I'm 5'8" and ride a medium. They aren't as long as some mediums.
