    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!

    Sweet Pony, good luck getting a reign, you will need to buy a complete bike as the frames are sold out!

    How do you like the Reign compared to your 07 RFX?

    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...
