Hi, my name is Petri from Australia. I've heard that this is the place for Turner owners to revell and rave so I'd like to ask some advice.
I own an 03 DHR which recently broke. I'm currently waiting for a replacement frame and swingarm to be sent. The place it broke was around the main pivot which also twisted the pivot holes on the swingarm, looking at pics of the new 04 frames, they look exactly the same around that area. I also had huge problems with the bearings flogging out, i just had a customer come back with his bearings destroyed after only two weeks of riding a brand new frame. It took the bearings in my frame the same time to collapse. I just chickened out of buying a new Rail after seeing this happen to yet another DHR frame.
I emailed Turner to try to get an eta and an explination (as i'm in the middle of a race season) with no response, they did contact the wholesaler (telling them it'll arrive in April) but not me-and i don't have it yet. I understand that they are busy so i accepted that, but obviously i feel a little neglected expecially that i support Turner in my bike shops.
I am curious as to whether anyone else has had that problem and are any of the 04 frames doing that? 4 out of five frames that i know of in Australia broke so obviously it must be an inherrent problem-not the fact that Aussies are so hardcore!
If anyone has any advice, i'd love to get it. After so many frames breaking here, the brand dosen't have a very good image and personally i really like the bikes and i want to rectify that.
Next thread i start hopefully will be full of praise and wonderfulnessness...ness about my shiny new bike!!!
