    You can't get Enduro Needle Bearings for CCDB's

    I had one on my M6, I already tried.

    I'm not sure it can fit for inside diameter CCDB ( when press out DU bushing of CCDB ) . I wait this order and try it.

    i'd take the bike but burn the saddle and replace it with one that does justice to the rest of the build.

    It's like having a having a Mercedes and putting a cassette player in it.

    I'm consider whether color Black or Green.

    At least Turner is a step or two above the Evil Revolt catastrophe. It all helps keep those 2011 Demos flying out the doors! :thumbsup: :p :D

    Tried to buy one for about 8 months, probably the most frustrating attempted purchase experience in my life. When I heard about the recall in October I canceled my order because I just didn't believe that it would only be a month turnaround. Sad to hear about the "one month" turnaround getting stretched to February now. At least its winter.

    I was just in my local bike shop last week and saw the re-designed DHR. It appears much stronger with a larger gusset on the down tube and a gusset on the top tube next to the head tube junction.

    I think the 2011 Demo is a notch above the DHR. DHR to me seems like a hacked bike.

    well putting the DHR next to a Demo makes the DHR look like a hack.
    Demo = super model
    DHR = catalog model
    why so many homers need to defend a catalog model anyway?

    at 37lbs, yet with a beefy construction, with sexy curves to match, it's a killer combo. That's like a girl with a super model face and in a tight tennis player's body. That's what I see the Demo as.
    The DHR on the other hand has plain old top tube and down tube. It's like somebody from OCC chopper just took 2 straight pipes and put some welds on them and call it a bike. Where are the sexy curves?
    Seeing that both bikes cost about the same, both perform equally well in the right hands (which is none in here), I say the Demo makes your bucks bang harder for you, no?
    On top of that you get faster (not necessarily better) warranty service with the Demo.
    That's why one is super model, one is catalog model. What's garbage about it?

    Chauzie,
    I think there's a forum for you post about your Specialized. It's call the "Specialized" forum. Check it out. There's plenty of other riders over their that love curved tubes.

    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.

    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.

    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.
  • 01-14-2011
    Krout
    -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.

    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.

    Hey Bliz2z, congratulations, sweet ride!
    Any ideas of the overal weight?
    Cheers

    Thanks.

    Sure I have a scale pic (16.15kg = 35.6lbs).


    And some pics done with a cam not phone..

    ridewithjo
    Wow! That's quite impressive, is that with your light wheels? Any idea how much it weights with the heavy ones (I'm very interested as I just ordered the same frame/finish/size and I'm planning to build it with almost the same parts as you!)?
    Thanks
  • 01-23-2011
    bliz2z
    That's with the light wheels (1020g tires). It would be around 600-700grams more with the heavy wheels.
    The frame is 3840g with axle all screws and some tube around the chain stay (w/o shock).

    Don't even mention Bootleg...:cryin: I was supposed to be there this weekend, but my trip got cancelled. The Go-Ride Crew will be at the race the following weekend, but I was not scheduled to go, and I think the van is already full. I'll see what I can do. I am sending out 100 "FREE" t-shirts for the first 100 people who register for next weekends race. So, if you haven't already done so, get registered. :thumbsup:

    Yes I did. It was a great deal.

    However, while I was unpacking I noticed a little knick on the bottom of the driveside crank arm. Its not worth returning since I know I'll be putting enough knicks in it myself, but you might want to smack someone in the shipping department upside the head for me. ;)

    The only way we can offer then at that price is that they were OEM extras that don't come with the fancy aftermarket sales packaging. Like you said, one run, and they'll have plenty of scratches. :D

    Is a 287 mm seatpost too long for a medium DHR?

    Do you guys buy the seatpost and just cut them down to fit the DHR?
  • 02-15-2011

    i have a thomson 287 elite on my 2011 fits perfectly, no cutting required.
