    Post your 2010 RFX

    Since the new RFX is on extended vacation lets make ourselves feel good about our "placeholder bikes" we've been riding...Spots with big forks and tires are welcome, i don't need to see your Bullit.

    Disclamer- i am in no way trying to show DT how many of us are on 160-170 bikes-or telling him he's made the wrong choice- Turner Suspension Bicycles is not my company! This was, truely though, a placeholder bike. So was the 09 Reign X that replaced the 07 RFX.

    Happy friday!

    Well, it's not Turner quality-let's get that out there first.

    I'm still a downhiller at heart, and i wanted a lower BB and a slacker head anlge. That's what i got, and was pleasantly suprised with a bit faster acceleration and better sharp bump absorbtion. What i lost was the pivot durability and a lot of pedal strikes while climbing. Half the time i think it's better in the granny, since it digs in for traction, half the time it is a tiny bit stiff which give a little feedback at the pedals.

    It for sure feels more like a mini DH bike. It kills full on DH courses and big jumps.

    The progression rate of the Turner was better, it was a perfect rising rate. Even though the reign X has more travel it doesn't necessarily feel like it since it takes about the same amount of force to bottom out either bike. The extra 10mm makes it feel a little better soaking up big holes on DH courses though.The lack of seat tube is a drag too, even though with a gravity dropper i have the 4 inches it provides plus 2 more inches i can lower it on the frame so 6" total. The 09 was a lot heavier but the 2010 is lightre than the RFX (6.25lbs!!(RP23))

    The shock is the same length, but the bike gets more travel so i went up 50lbs in spring rate, no problem for me-that put me at 400lbs but big fellas end up with heavy springs or high pressures.

    I hear ya on the shock. Some company in Loveland is blowing them out

    BTW, is that stem a Sunline 65 mm, Black? I had an 80mm all mountain but it did not clamp very tight, but been looking at the 65.

    yes that's indeed a 65mm Sunline stem - it's nice, light and stiff.

    I need to try a lighter spring rate on the MX tune tho - it feels just a hair over sprung right now.

    I also have a few trick up my sleeve for the bike...

    My 80mm stem would twist on the steertube on hard hits, etc.., as I could not seem to tighten it enough. It was the 1st run of them way back when though. The black 65's look sick, gonna have to pull the trigger. Rode twice in the last week, so good to be back on tacky dirt.........until last night that is, 6" of snow & counting Gonna melt fast though

    I just switched over to those sunline stems late in the season (right before the rain hit us) - so I only have a hand full of rides on them (also have one on my Reign). Hope they don't start twisting.

    if you need one of those Thomson, let me know - I have a load of them that I'm not using.

    and for a cheaper stem - I like the Truvativ AKA stems. I got one of those on my Orange (60mm) and it's been pretty solid.

    The Sunline AM stems have 5mm fasteners, and I too have had them twist on the steerers.
    The Sunline DH stems use 6mm fasteners and are rock solid.

    No pic of my bike BUT I do ride an 08 Reign X1 that was supposed to be placeholder for the DW RFX.

    Now that I have a CCDB in there (Thanks Kris and Go-Ride!) I'm more stoked on this bike than anything I've owned in the past. I even hesitate to grab the Highline if it isn't full face mandatory riding.

    I've got a nearly identical damper setup to Krispy. CCDB rear (new version, not the old crappy one) and 2010 170mm coil Lyrik DH up front. It is scary how well that shock and fork play together. Feels like the same damper on both ends to me.

    The ride yesterday proved to me that this bike is one hell of an efficient climber. In terms of both smoothness and reduced pedal bob. Even after a full day of heaving logs around I was able to destroy my riding buddies to the top, who usually destroy me.

    I am totally stoked and hope it lasts me a couple more years. The pivots sure need to be replaced damn often though. Which is why I was looking at the DW RFX.



    IF DT could deliver the DW RFX with overseas production, at a good price range, it would be the top selling frame of this type without any doubt.


    I think Firebord is totally out of the question for me now. Not slack enough, built for air shocks, and I am just materialistic against carbon fiber rocker arms.

    Hey Krispy,

    Nice ride, The reign X sure is a top contender, as the next long travel bike i am thinking of getting.

    How are the pivots holding up on the bike? No dramas with it so far.

    Also, how does the Reign X with the CaneCreek Double Barrel compares to a Fox DHX air that comes with the bike?

    Shaun.

    Place, holder, not so much, but it still has a place in the stable, and it's still a kick ass bike. Needs a little cleaning, and a fresh coat of paint, but good to go until it's long dead and gone.

    happy trails...

    Krispy, that is a good looking "placeholder bike". Does it have a 12mm rear axle? What rear hub are you running?
