Hi Turner riders,
I'm thinking about purchasing a 2004 Turner DHR, and after reading all of the positive feedback and reviews here, I'm really convinced that I'm making the right decision. I'm looking to create a great DH bike that I can take back to Europe with me, and use for shuttle runs at ski resorts and perhaps even some DH racing.
What I am wondering about is what fork to choose with this frame. I am trying to decide between a 888r, Monster T or Boxxer. Although Dorados would be nice, they are out of my price range. I've also read that the DHR frame is designed for 7 to 8 inch travel forks, and that with some of the forks there can be handling-related problems due to high crown height. Is this only the case with the 888r? Anyone using Shivers on their DHR? I don't see to many people using this fork - anyone know why?
I've used RockShox in the past, and was disappointed by their quality, which prompted me to switch to Marzocchi for my current ride (which I haven't regretted one bit). But I'm willing to give them a new chance if need be. What are you guys using? Would a heavy fork like the monster T create an imbalance on the bikes weight distribution?
Thanks for your help and advice!
PS: here's a pic of what I currently ride. I love that 4 bar linkage design and ride-feel just like the burner!
