    DHR - but depends on if ya going for a racer type build or FR build, since ya a light guy I suspect yr could fly with a racer build so DHR all da way, HL should be bit more pedal friendly for the mrs!

    Congrats on the big day and what a way to celebrate, plus look at yer presies! enjoy up there AW, I mean how can ya go wrong yeahaaaaaa

    Man those are nice. I love the color of the Highline.

    Can't wait till my Highline and I get a taste of da Dobayu in August!... And hopefully a day or two sampling FM's NS goodness.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Damn! Airwreck, I hate you.

    J/K
    Does the dhr fit you too? Looks kinda short in the toptube. Would be sweet if it did fit you!
    Those are the two most gorgeous frames ever to sit hand in hand on any couch. I'm dying with envy.

    Ren, small frames, fits both of us. I traded my 06 HL front tri in for the new smaller 08 version, been looking forward to the reduced sizing and riding these two bikes back to back.

    BZ, if you're riding the WBP I'm going to have make sure to be there for that, especially if the whole XL crew is there. Aqua can't miss that...

    Actually rode xc last night instead of building these up, did weigh them at least.

    btw TA, everyday is a big day, bikes are honeymooning, we'll be too tired...

    marathon build, friday night, all day and night saturday, getting them out for a ride today. Both bikes are close in weight at 40+, don't see either one of them dropping below that in the near future.




    Highline is waiting for a Gravity Lite crank set up, one more brake bleed and it'll be ready. It's got 08 Saint brakes that still don't quite have the solid feel of jewels benchmark LX's she's used to.


    the DHR is waiting for a gamut guide, some new wheel bearings, should probably change the oil in the boxxer (bought used), brakes are 09 xt's and also will need more bleeding to get them feeling more solid too. Got a few seatposts cut down now as we try and figure that out. It would be nice to round up a couple different rear shock springs.

    1 a.m. test rides between the bikes on the street was fun, saying this without having ridden every Turner, but the difference between a spot and rfx, or rfx and highline, is pretty small, between the highline and dhr, is huge. kidwoo is going to call me out again on this, but after riding the DHR the HL feels like a (very heavy) 5 spot!

    Very nice AW, great work,

    Both bikes look awesome, the gold on the HL realy is stunning even in the piccs, like the camo touch on the totem are the 08 saints the new model?

    Enjoy the bikes and the HM in whistler dude

    quick ride report, mostly been trying to do some runs on the DHR as it is a new experience and getting used to it is probably a good idea before the pilgrimage to mecca.

    Decided the inaugural voyage should be down our mostest epicest DH run, 5000 feet of high speed vert, which happened to have a fresh coat of grease and poor visiblity, forcing me to ride cautious. The run includes the berm jump line after the long fast stuff so nice mix of terrain. Kept it upright and enjoyed soaking up the nasties.

    Returned for a push up to the berms and jumps the next day and made several runs through the booters to get a better idea how to fly the DHR. Considerable mental effort working on getting that centered feeling. Jewels handed the HL over to the resident grom for the jump line initiation, he's well under 5 foot and the fit was okay. He did great on it. When I switched over to the HL after several runs on the DHR I was blown away how small the HL felt, sure was fun to jump.

    Figured I better get some more time in on the new stuff so I took the DHR up again yesterday. Enjoyed discovering that the DHR loves wall rides and wants to track up high and carve nice arcs, very stoked on that.

    Still waiting for a few parts to arrive, the xt brakes have me concerned. Got a good taste of what to expect from each bike, wish there was a way to have the HL waiting for me at the top of the boneyard after bombing down the upper mountain on the DHR...

    okay, where did I leave off...
    after sessioning the local booters on the DHR I took the HL up the next day for the same. Wow, the HL feels like a little BMX compared to the DHR. What a blast it was to jump and flick it, this bike comparison has really opened my eyes to what a good jumper the HL is.

    Interesting the difference in the suspension feel between the bikes, the DHR, boxxer with soft spring and dhx with a 350, the HL, totem soft spring and vivid with 350. The DHR has a firm progressive front and soft rear, the HL is soft up front and firm rear. I would like to see the HL suspension more balanced, so I'm going to try and soften up the boxxer and stiffen the totem but not feeling like there is much I can do to soften the vivid. Jewels experimented with the DHX air on the HL yesterday evening but didn't actually ride it, and then put the vivid back on this morning.

    Couple of days riding here in whistler so far and I've only ridden the DHR, Jewels was concerned about getting comfy on the HL and it sounds like she got along fine with it yesterday. She's doing the dirt series womens camp and had an epic day with the girls and mr. knolly, while I did solo garbonzo repeats and a few a-lines and dirt merchants.

    I am riding the DHR hard, definatly not treating it like a "race" bike, the gnartech has been kind of challenging, speed/momentum is key as is bike body seperation. The firm progressive feel of the boxxer is coming in handy when stuffing the front wheel in the upper mountain trail gnarl. Of course letting it go in the super rough is awesome. Still try to get comfy on the bigger drops, that's one time when it feels like a lot of bike. On the jumps it sails and you got to be on it. Hesitant a lot of the time because I don't realize how fast I'm actually going and some uncertainity how the bike will react. Figuring it out and starting to whip and throw it around more.

    Would have to say at this point that the DHR is not easy to ride, not that anything is in those conditions, but new experience for me. Very curious to get some runs in on the HL, and I'm sure I'll have a lot to say after that.
