Stop it, NOW.

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

    Bike setup:
    * Frame Size & Color: 2012 Blem DHR - Powder coat Granny Green front and Black Ano rear (IMO the rep-owder coated blemished frame looks even sexier!)
    * Rear Shock: Elka Stage 5, 350lb spring
    * Fork: 2011 Boxxer Team
    * Brakes: Hope V2 203mm front, 183mm rear
    * Shifter: Shimano Saint M810
    * Cranks: 2011 RaceFace Atlas FR (Ano Purple)
    * Chainguide: Gamut P-30
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano Saint M810
    * Pedals: NC17 Sudpin III (Green)
    * Stem: Sixpack Splitz Direct Mount 45-55mm, currently set at 48mm (Ano Green)
    * Handlebar: Chromag Fubar OSX cut to 760mm (Ano Purple)
    * Seatpost: Sixpack (Purple)
    * Saddle: Spank Starblast
    * Bottom Bracket: RaceFace DH
    * Chainring: Gamut 36T
    * Cassette: Shimano XT M770 9 Speed 11-32
    * Headset: Cane Creek XX II
    * Grips: ODI/TroyLee Designs lock-ons
    * Front Tire: Maxxis Minion 2.0 DHF UST
    * Rear Tire: Maxxis Minion 2.0 DHF UST
    * Wheelset: 2011 Mavic Deemax

    Future changes:
    My Elka Stage 5 is currently leaking oil from the low speed compression knob as the knob is being turned. Seems like it had lost some nitrogen charge too. Will change to a Ti spring once the shock is serviced (local dealer is still waiting for parts from Elka). Just need to make sure I have the spring rate correct once I have the shock properly setup after servicing before ordering the Ti spring. Will also post my shock settings once it is serviced.

    Rider Setup
    *Weight: 175lb, 180-185lb geared
    *Height: 173cm (5"8')

    Pictures to follow next week.

    hi guys
    what do you think about installing a thicker bottom headset ?
    and raising the front by half an inch?

    thanks

    Yeah it will work, but with a dual crown fork, can't you just extend the stanchions further down from the crowns to raise the front?

    thanks Marshall

    mgv101, the boxxer has a minimum of 154 mm from the bottom crown to the top of the stansions, so I want it to stay that way.

    if you check out the picture of mine a few posts you can see how it will look.

    I just built it up and already want to upgrade it ha ha. I have some formula one's laying around and would like to swap my boxxer r2c2 for a WC. Winter project I guess.

    Cheers, I'm so pleased on how this one rides over my drilled 09 DHR. Im hooked.
    K9industries here in the UK do all their springs in 25lbs increments. Apparently I need 10 posts to be able to show you a link, but a quick search on google should lead you to them fairly easilly.

    Not sure where people are getting this set up, but they are not warranty replacements (at least not all of them). You should be able to ask Fanatik to mix up the rear end for ya. They're pretty dialed with stuff like that.

    neither do I! the problem is im lack of seat, cranks, derailleur, chain, Chain Guide and headset.

    Im deciding between gravity gaps (59$ killer deal) or descendants @ 182$, im very light so "flex" on the descendants wont be an issue, but having to pay only 59 for the cranks is really tempting. what do you guys think I should choose?

    im going cane creek 40 for headset
    straitline silentguide for chainguide
    SRAM X.9 for Mech
    SDG I-Fly for seat
    and KMC SL for chain

    hope you like the partial build i am yet to have

    my new DHR

    just got my frame last week
    ordered a Medium
    and found out it's abit too long for my taste
    I'm 170m
    so almost changed the order to a Small..
    but I like the look of the Medium better.
    made a headset that make it a 10 mm shorter
    and changed my stem to the stratline 28mm stem
    the cockpit is shorter by a full 1 inch now

    That's some nice work. Did you ever consider running a standard headset and trying one of those 10mm stems?



    http://www.nutsbike.com/tag/centre-stem

    Reading that article and Cesar's thread on Ridemonkey make it sounds like something I'd like to try. Only problem is I'd need a new frame since I wouldn't want my cockpit any shorter than it is now.

    Me! But I like RC4 more on the DHR.

    Here are the baseline settings that I have received from DT and Elka.
    Their suggestions were VERY different from each other.

    DT:
    I talked to a rider that has a DHR with Elka and is about your size. This is what he suggests as a baseline for Elka shock set up. Of course he has never ridden with you so use this as a starting point!

    400# spring at 180 lb rider....

    15/32 clicks of low speed comp
    3/15 clicks of high speed comp
    16/30 clicks of rebound
    Elka:
    Start with the following hydraulic adjustment on the shock and fine tune from there to your licking.
    High speed compression: full hard minus 8 clics
    Low speed compression: full hard minus 10 clics
    Rebound: full in minus 10-11 clics
    350# spring was also suggested for a 180 lb rider on the Elka site instead of 400 as suggested by DT.

    And here are my own settings:
    HS: 10
    LS: 15
    RB: 13

    Maybe. Either a 300 or 350, I can't be sure.
    Guess it would depend on personal preference too.

    rode it yesterday with a 350# still spring (on my RC4 I have 300# TI ) I wanted the bike to be firmer, but still eat up everything...
    and from the first run it felt great.
    ELKA guys told me the basic settings
    after a few runs I open the HS, 2 clicks more and I love it
    I wonder if a 350# TI spring will make it even better

    Is everyone sticking to the Turner recommended settings for their RC4? I'm running a #325 ti, and apprx 162-165lb with all my gear. I thinking the recommended 140 psi may not be enough.

    Any thoughts on psi or other settings?

    Pressure in the piggy back causes more ramp up. The frame and the shock at baseline settings are already pretty progressive.

    Run it at the minimum. Unless you're doing something bender style and riding off roof tops for some reason, I think you'll find it works well.

    You can find a shoulder bolt that will work.

    But yeah I don't see the dhr specific bolt kit on their website either.

    I don't think those bolts are used on other frames.......I might be wrong.

    zeta i see that you are in canada. give brafasco a try. they have had bolts for my turners in the past, spot and sultan shock bolts. make sure the shoulder on the bolt is the same length as stock, you don't want any of the threads making contact on the shock reducers. but you prob already know that.

    Start with the Fox website and go from there. Mine only needed a couple clicks here and there and it feels perfect.

    have a question for you guys, i bought a straitline silent guide for my DHR build but stupidly got the ISCG-old instead of the 05' one, i live in venezuela so having it returned would cost me the same as buying another guide again, so the question is, can i buy a BB to ISCG-old adapter and use this guide and not spend precious money on another guide? thanks!

    Buy another guide and get a Gamut. The adapter will cause chainline problems that'll piss you off for not getting the correct guide in the first place.

    My DHR frame was delivered from Turner last October, a week after I'd broken my shoulder.

    Finally got it dirty today at the new Mountain Creek Bike Park. Had a crap XC race in the morning, but a great afternoon riding DH on the "new" bike

    Awesome rigs guys!
    I've just started my new build, got Turner DHR 2011 frame size L and Lyric RC2DH 170mm fork. Question is, will it blend? I mean, is it really insane to put these two together? I've been riding with 170mm forks on the front all my life (Junior T, other single crown forks etc.) UK DH trails and a bit of a freeride, and I never felt that I need anything more that. I'm not concerned about the head angle. 63 is damn slack so one degree stepper is not an issue for me. Weight wise, we're talking 2140 grams vs 2,689 grams for RockShox BoXXer WC Keronite which is the lightest 200mm fork, so that's a big plus. Any thoughts?

    Very similar, but I made it myself extending it down to completely block the gap between wheel and shock in the rear triangle.

    Seconded. Would also be interested to hear if you're able to keep mud from slinging over the top of it, as most appear to have this happen with similar setups to yours.

    It's far from perfect, but from the mud stuck to it on the wheelside it definitely helps.

    It was made from a document binder cover, just the thin plastic. I'll try to remember to take some close-up photos.

    Are this 2.4 new maxxis tires?
    How do they compare to the old 2.5 maxxis tires?
    Is there more mud clearance at the rear of the bike?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    yes, this are the new 2.4 maxxis, but there is no more mud clearance.
    I think maxxis only changed the labeling of the new tires.

    Hi Allemalle,
    I see that you have a k9 spring. Is it the race steel model ?
    I'm interested by a k9 race spring but the free lenght is 140 mm and on my actual fox spring it's 162 mm !! Is it compatible ?

    K9 Spring

    Hi Mslide,
    yes, this is a K9 Race steel spring.

    It fits for shocks with 2,5", 2,75" and 3" stroke.
    For a Fox shock you will need an adapter or a shock trust bearing.
