    Right choice?

    I posted this in another forum but didnt get much of a response.

    I'm about to drop a big chunk of money on a DHR next week and I just want to be sure I'm making the right choice. This is going to be my first DH bike and I plan to race, not just ride parks. Can someone give me some feedback on the DHR? My only concern is tuning the bike to fit my style of riding. I have to order the bike (complete) because there are NO turner dealers close to me. I'm worried I will have a nice a** bike but not know how to tune anything on it.

    I could easily go to the Trek store up the road and buy a session 88 or M9 and be able to go right in the store when I have an issue with it. Unforntunatly thats not the case with the DHR.

    You guys got any advice?

    No LBS is going to beable to dial your bike in as their not riding it. Dhr is a sweet bike but that sure is a nice rig for a begineer. IMO if I was you I would be more concerned with learning to ride and learning the fundmentals of riding which will make it easier to adjust your bike.

    Doesn;t matter if you get a dhr,88,m9,jedi,evil ect ect . they will all have front shocks and forks that will need to be dialed in for your weight and trails you ride.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.
