    Good to see you finally got it together. Looks speedy.

    What does it mean to be drilled? (On a DHR that is...)

    To answer questions...

    Novato Kid, I came home to Marin for a weekend, I'll be back for the summer May 21st or the 22nd. Then tripping it up to Northstar the 23rd.

    pillette, I used my mom's Sony Cybershot camera. It's totally generic, not sure how I got good pictures out of it...

    coiler8, not sure about the weight. It feels pretty light as is, looking forward to going tubeless and Ti Spring. I think when its said and done should be 39. Feels 40ish now.

    Uncle Cliffy, drilled means you modified the frame to get better geometry. Not sure if you can tell in the pictures but there are two holes in the rear swingarm where the linkage connects. The hole forward is the stock position which is a higher BB and steeper head angle. To drill means you literally drill a hole about 10mm back from the stock position to get a slacker head angle and lower bottom bracket. Turner doesn't really 100% support the drill mod, but they indirectly back it since so many people do it.

    Props to Choofoojoo for the nice bars...they're way dope. Thanks!

    The more I stare at the bike the more I like the white with silver/white/black stickers verses my black with sliver/black/ yellow sticker set.

    I'm sure the newer DHRs are awesome bikes in terms of performance....but older DHRs just look so amazing. The squared tubing makes it look like it's indestructible.

    I agree I love the older DHR just looks so strong and since I am going down I don't really care about weight . I think my 05 weighs in @44lbs

    I bought the DHR frame in early September 2007. I picked up parts here and there because I do not ride during the school year, I am too busy with school and hockey to really get some good rides in. So I decided to take it slow and buy parts here and there and slowly build it up.

    Well I've definitely had some serious ride time on it. About 3 months of solid Northstar riding.

    Unfortunately my bike weighs more than I anticipated, about 41.9 lbs, or basically 42 lbs, with ghetto tubeless. The only thing to make it lighter would be wheels and a Ti Spring. I don't think they're worth it at this point.

    As for the bike, rides like a champ. I love how stiff the rear is. On my previous bike which was a traditional single pivot I could feel a lot of flex. The rear on this one is rock solid, never felt any flex thus far. The suspension is really active and plush. 8.5" of travel is just enough. It took me a while to get the front dialed to the rear (The 888 SLATA is pretty hard to get dialed) but they both work really good now.

    The Goods: The bike handles rock gardens like a dream. The wheels stay planted and it maintains a lot of rolling momentum. You have a lot of control in tricky sections on the DHR. The bike also feels really nimble and quick in and out of turns. The bike feels fantastic in the air, I can throw it around a good bit now. I can't say enough about Turner quality, the welds, the Zerk Grease system, and the support they offer is awesome. Super stiff rear, no flex at all. Nice compact design so it feels good on all sorts of terrain.

    The Bads: It took me a really really long time to get used to the wheelbase. The bike felt sluggish and rode like a hog in berms. I don't know why. It took me a while to learn how to use the low bottom bracket to my advantage. My bike is drilled so the wheelbase is rather long. If you're looking at a new DH rig pay attention to the wheelbase, it makes a huge difference. The pre 2008 DHR's are also heavy. With a somewhat light build mine hits the scale at 42 lbs, where my friends Cumba is at a mere 37.8 lbs. The DHR does get Brake Jack, but nothing worth playing down the frame for. Only high speed chatter bumps cause brake jack so far on the DHR.

    Basically, this is my favorite DH bike thus far. If I could I'd have the newer one cause it weighs less, but I'm really loving my DHR. If you want a DH rig that can really handle rock gardens, but feel pretty controllable in the air, quick and nimble, compact ride then look into a DHR.

    Rap, what is your impression of your wheelset. I've been thinking about getting the exact set you have to put on my bullit. Obviously it isn't the most expensive one out there (but they sure look trick), but I'm curious to your thoughts on the quality of the wheels, weight, and how well they have held up to N*. Thanks.

    So far so good. I've dinged them a few times and they've held up perfectly. Really impressed by the Outlaws. As for weight, they're not that heavy for such a cheap set. You can go Ghetto Tubeless with them as well.

    I don't have very many complaints about them.
