    DMR FR/DJ...160mm?

    Hey friends, a buddy of mine has a DMR, I am not personally sure what frame it is, but I know its either an 06 or 07 frame. He picked it up brandnew from a guy for $100. I think its the Trailstar but it could be the Sidekick as well.

    The Sidekick is set up for a 90-100mm fork and the Trailstar is set up for a 120-130mm fork. He just picked up a Marz 55R 140mm and is planning to put it on.

    Now I know its going to throw off his geometry, but does anyone have any experience with this setup or something similar. The DMR's are steel frames, so I am sure it will withstand the extra pressures if it is indeed the Trailstar, but not to keen on the Sidekick taking a 140mm without major major stresses on the frame on landings.


    [EDIT]


    ......BTW, Apparently this frame is a short run of frames DMR made that was set up geometrically for 160mm forks. Anyone know what it was called?

    Thats what I thought but when I called DMR, they said the Exhalt wasn't made back then.

    Yep, Trailstar LT after sending pictures to DMR they informed us it is apparently an early development of the Trailstar LT.
