    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.

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

    But that looks super slack compared to everyone else.

    The Raw with the red and Kashima looks absolutely sick.

    Bajaguy,that thing looks so SICK. I just received my frame last night. Will post pics once it's built up. Actually here is a question. I weigh 150lbs. Any recommendations on spring weight? I'm thinking 300, it came with a 450, which obviously wont do...

    dear all DHR lover,

    im planning to build a DH bike and DHR is one of my option...however, i hardly find anyone in my town who got DHR...

    therefore, kindly need your help to describe any advantage / disadvantage of DHR frame..

    im 68 kg 170 cm and ride quite agressive with my santa cruz bullit..

    thanks in advance for your help

    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.
