    I'm not sure it can fit for inside diameter CCDB ( when press out DU bushing of CCDB ) . I wait this order and try it.

    I've got that saddle on my Gran Mal, damn comfy

    The DHR looks very nice, like the clean lines, too bad he doesn't do the same for the trail bikes

    Yes, but it's much more fun to get the nut swingers like yourself riled up. Does he pay you or something to defend him endlessly here??

    I'll admit I'm a fan but I didn't post any defense. Just wondering why you have such a hard on for all things Turner.

    i'd take the bike but burn the saddle and replace it with one that does justice to the rest of the build.

    It's like having a having a Mercedes and putting a cassette player in it.

    Cool bike puppy_6.6, freerider forever

    I'd like to know that the "Green anodized" of Turner DHR will be the same as the Green powder coat color or the Green anodized color which shown on website?
    I'm consider whether color Black or Green.

    Ouch!

    At least Turner is a step or two above the Evil Revolt catastrophe. It all helps keep those 2011 Demos flying out the doors!

    Tried to buy one for about 8 months, probably the most frustrating attempted purchase experience in my life. When I heard about the recall in October I canceled my order because I just didn't believe that it would only be a month turnaround. Sad to hear about the "one month" turnaround getting stretched to February now. At least its winter.

    I was just in my local bike shop last week and saw the re-designed DHR. It appears much stronger with a larger gusset on the down tube and a gusset on the top tube next to the head tube junction.

    I think the 2011 Demo is a notch above the DHR. DHR to me seems like a hacked bike.

    well putting the DHR next to a Demo makes the DHR look like a hack.
    Demo = super model
    DHR = catalog model
    why so many homers need to defend a catalog model anyway?
    just my 02

    at 37lbs, yet with a beefy construction, with sexy curves to match, it's a killer combo. That's like a girl with a super model face and in a tight tennis player's body. That's what I see the Demo as.
    The DHR on the other hand has plain old top tube and down tube. It's like somebody from OCC chopper just took 2 straight pipes and put some welds on them and call it a bike. Where are the sexy curves?
    Seeing that both bikes cost about the same, both perform equally well in the right hands (which is none in here), I say the Demo makes your bucks bang harder for you, no?
    On top of that you get faster (not necessarily better) warranty service with the Demo.
    That's why one is super model, one is catalog model. What's garbage about it?

    Chauzie,
    I think there's a forum for you post about your Specialized. It's call the "Specialized" forum. Check it out. There's plenty of other riders over their that love curved tubes.
    Can't keep track anymore - Giant, Santa Cruz, Pivot, Yeti, Norco, Salsa, Intense - if it rolls on dirt I like it :thumbsup:

    Leave him alone Scott. He's been riding for a whole 2 years so he surely knows what's best.

    Hmmm... he may just be right about the curvy tubes. Afterall this was my first "big boy" bike, complete with curvy tubes....

    The Demo doesn't even have the chainguide setup correctly. Way at the wrong angle. Stupid specialized.

    And for guys like you that base a bike's worth soley on appearance, I'm stoked you have some options! Just do yourself a favor and never get a meaningful test ride in on a well tuned dhr.

    Chauzie,

    We don't have a problem with your opinion. We didn't say anything bad about the Demo or why the DHR is better, etc. However, you show up and start bagging on the DHR in the Turner forum. Your words: "It's like somebody from OCC chopper just took 2 straight pipes and put some welds on them and call it a bike." That's pretty rude and shows you don't really have a clue as to what went into designing that bike. I personally know Dave Turner and Dave Weagle and know how much hard work they put into making a bike that performs great. That's what's important to them and most Turner owners.

    Ultimately, this is a thread about "Set-Ups for DHRs", not a thread about "what bike do you like better than the DHR". If you want to start that thread you should do it in the general "DH" forum.

    Chauzie, let me refresh your memory:

    In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

    New DHR

    Just got my new DHR. I am really impressed with the new head-tube design. I rode my original frame for 2 months at Whistler and other downhill trails. This is without a doubt the best downhill bike I've ever had.

    Does anyone know how far you can insert the seatpost into the seat tube? There are some DH trails around here that require a pedaling up a fire road. Was wondering if i can get reasonable leg extension to pedal up some of the fire roads.

    -Q: What size seatpost is required?

    A: 2011 dw-link DHR's use a 30.9mm seatpost with enough length to guarantee 4" or 100mm of insertion.
    2008 DHR's and prior use a 27.2mm seatpost size.

    What size are you running MTBAlex?

    On my XL I have roughly 7-8" of seatpost tube on the frame with another 2" below the tube before hitting the shock.

    On an XL say 5-6" of adjustment. I have a similar situation and the extra length will come in handy.

    Hey Krout,

    I'm tryign to decide if the DHR is the bike I want. I'm 5'8'' and so I'm in between a small and a medium. Now how much of the seatpost need to be in the seat tube for the seatpost to be stable and have minimal risk in wrecking the frame? an inch?

    That would be 4" minimum insertion. Email Turner, they should have the answers your looking for.

    Not sure if it helps or not, but I'm 5'7" and ride a medium with about 7" of seat post sticking out. The mediums are pretty small, there is no way I could see myself on a small.

    Just got my frame yesterday. Didn't know what color it was gonna be. I've seen raw and black and they are both real nice.
    I ended up with black and it's perfect!

    Wow! That's quite impressive, is that with your light wheels? Any idea how much it weights with the heavy ones (I'm very interested as I just ordered the same frame/finish/size and I'm planning to build it with almost the same parts as you!)?
    Thanks

    That's with the light wheels (1020g tires). It would be around 600-700grams more with the heavy wheels.
    The frame is 3840g with axle all screws and some tube around the chain stay (w/o shock).

    Don't even mention Bootleg... I was supposed to be there this weekend, but my trip got cancelled. The Go-Ride Crew will be at the race the following weekend, but I was not scheduled to go, and I think the van is already full. I'll see what I can do. I am sending out 100 "FREE" t-shirts for the first 100 people who register for next weekends race. So, if you haven't already done so, get registered.

    I see you got in on the special on Saint Cranks we have at Go-ride.com.
    Can't keep track anymore - Giant, Santa Cruz, Pivot, Yeti, Norco, Salsa, Intense - if it rolls on dirt I like it :thumbsup:

    Yes I did. It was a great deal.

    However, while I was unpacking I noticed a little knick on the bottom of the driveside crank arm. Its not worth returning since I know I'll be putting enough knicks in it myself, but you might want to smack someone in the shipping department upside the head for me.

    The only way we can offer then at that price is that they were OEM extras that don't come with the fancy aftermarket sales packaging. Like you said, one run, and they'll have plenty of scratches.

    Is a 287 mm seatpost too long for a medium DHR?

    Do you guys buy the seatpost and just cut them down to fit the DHR?

    Thanks Kreater. 287mm is 11inches. I think you can put about 4-5 inches in the frame. So that means about 6 inches is sticking out?

    hey alex, yes just over 11in. i have the seat post all the way in the seat tube flush with the bottom, and about 4 3/4 showing. I might still tweak it a bit. hope this helps.

    Thanks Kreater. That does help. So then you have about 2-4 inches of adjustment for the seat tube.

    I'm just trying to decide if i should buy a used thomson masterpiece and cut it down or buy the elite 287mm.

    99% complete.

    Just need to trim the brake hoses, slap on the frame protection in a few spots, and swap out some of the Ti jewelry that is still on the way. Should have everything done this weekend and be able to post some better pics.

    Good catch. I'm not done with the brakes yet, I still need to trim the lines and I'll route it inside the chainstay once I've got them cut to length.

    Yeah. If that is a small or med (headtube 3.5 or 4.0 according to the turner web site) + whatever stack height the headset adds might be less than 105mm (4.13"), which is what fox recommends as the min.

    Fox: "If your total stack height is less than 105.0 mm, add a headset spacer between the upper headset parts and the upper crown, to arrive within this total headset stack height specification."

    It looks a bit more exaggerated on my bike since I'm running a drop direct mount stem. With a normal rise direct mount stem it wouldn't stick out so much.

    I'll probably try a riser stem at some point, but wanted to see how this drop stem felt to see if it gave more bite to the front tire.

    Its made by these guys: http://muckynutz.com
    Its a really simple design, just a flexible piece of plastic and some velcro.
    They make for a nice small front fender also.

    Hey PG,

    How's that muckynutz fender working out for you? Any ride time on it yet? My concern that it might move around and hit the tire when I'm riding.

    Fender

    Have you ridden the fender in the muck yet? Does the fender actually stop anything, my thought is that the mud will just dump right over the top of the fender.

    Report Please!

    Please shoot at least 1 shot directly side view on all these DHRs

    Thank you

    DT

    Based upon my experience with a fender about the same size as PG's, it did little, if anything, to keep mud off the shock. Looked cool though...

    I've riden the last two days in the mud. The shock still got a little muddy, but I think the fender helped some. It probably keeps muds and rocks from being directly flung right into the shock.
    Tire clearance wasn't an issue, but I guess it could be if you were riding in very thick mud.

    Nice! Could you tell me which size (Ti) bolts you have used for the shock?
    Cheers

    Could you tell if the mud was going over the top or under the fender? I'm going to cut one out custom and want to know which way to make it bigger.
    Can't keep track anymore - Giant, Santa Cruz, Pivot, Yeti, Norco, Salsa, Intense - if it rolls on dirt I like it :thumbsup:

    Can anybody tell me what size bolt is used for the shock? Am I right to think it's a M6x40?
    Cheers

    I'll compliment your build, eventhough you didn't like mine.

    That is a damn good weight for a large frame. I'm not a fan of the Orange, but color is always a personal preference and it does make for a really unique ride.

    The rear spring looks long. What size is it?

    Very nice build, looks great. So far, you I are the only ones to post Raw & Black frames.

    Like the others above, that rear fender is sweet. Thanks for the link, I'm going to order one right now!

    I've been using an inner tube for the really muddy days. I tried the Mucky Nutz Bender Fender, but found that the mud did indeed come right over the top. In addition, when the bike is sagged mud comes through the hole in the bottom of the top link. I extended my inner tube mudflap down a ways at the lower attachment points and it seems to help.

    I just put this on for the photo, and forgot that I usually add a zip tie on each side down from the top a bit to attach the mudflap to the uprights/shock cage.

    FWIW, I've been using the Mucky Nutz fender in the front, and it works great.

    VERY NICE!

    Great to see it finally put together. Those custom green Boxxer stickers are sweet.

    What is that rubber tube over your derailleur cable? I assume it is to protect the housing/cable from chain wear, but I've never seen anything like that before.

    Thanks! That tubing is some clear aquarium tubing which helps reduce wear on the derailleur cable, but also deadens the chain slap sound a bit. I stole the idea from Sam Hill's mechanic back when I had a Sunday. I saw Sam's bike at Sea Otter in '06 and tried to copy as many of the little set-up tricks as I could.

    Okay okay okay,

    Alaska doesn't have nearly the scene for downhill rigs yet, but the resort here is working on it. How much for a properly built, Super DHR? I don't care so much about spending a bunch to decrease weight. I can justify buying one so I don't beat the hell out of my Spot with lift access riding. Thanks. Those are solid looking bikes.

    Nice rig and nice specc real world without too crazy ott congrats!

    Have you tired moto foam for the hole in the bottom of the top link, and also another idea for a fender is to cut up some A4 binder plastic outer cover off those folders ya get from the stationary shop thin and super easy to attach, in addition running a stocking yep in black over the hole shock body really works a treat.

    I did this last winter and will do so again, really made cleaning and keeping that area super clean, also Ive put in 2 dry seasons one wet now on my DHR and still on the original needle bearings, need to do the rear DU though on the shock, this is almost unheard of, props to the advice of Woo for the high tensile steel bolt idea and high quality 100% thin grease I regularly use in the links [rock n roll Ive used]and cut up zocchy fender she's still running sweet.

    Me too. Thanks to the Internet, I learned that a good DH bike is one that the photographs of it prompt people to post "Do Want."

    And I learned that posting a picture of a fully blinged out DH bike is a reliable indicator that the person posting the picture is a serious DH rider and maybe even has done a race, once or twice.

    I'm 6,1", used to ride a M Demo8 and bought my first DHR in L according to the Turner website and... loved it! I actually found it easier to ride. I'm talking about a 08 DHR though, as I'm still waiting to get my new DW one...
    By the way, could any of you folks, could take a sec to measure one of those shock bolts? I'm having some Ti bolts envy!

    Still need a titanium spring.
    Very nice ano black! The white cables are a nice touch.

    Check out the Nuke Proof Ti springs on CRC, they are a good deal.

    Thanks guys.

    Base on my spring, it is a 3.25 x 350lbs. I took a look at CRC and the closes thing they have is a 3.5 x 350 or a 3.0 x 300. Should I get the 3.0 vs the 3.5?

    I purchased the 3.0 X 350lb spring a few months ago, but it seems like that size is out of stock at the moment. I think the correct spring rate would be just as important as the stroke. At 170lbs with a 350lb spring i'm just able to set the correct sag. I would not go with a 300lb spring unless you are currently unable to set the correct sag with your 350lb spring.

    A 3.5" stroke should be fine, there is plenty of excess room with my 3.0" stroke spring. As long as you don't go below 3.0" you should be fine.

    As other have said, get the correct spring rate. Ask CRC about the free length of the 3.5" stroke spring to see if it will fit. I have a 3.5" stroke DSP Ti spring, and it's too long to fit on a 3.0 stroke shock.

    Thought I'd post up my new XL dhr in neon yellow. Super stoked with how it turned out.

    Specs:
    Frame: XL
    Shock: RC4 with 400#
    Fork: Boxxer WC
    Handlebar: Race Face Atlas
    Grips: ODI Ruffian
    Brakes: X0 203 f and 185 r
    Shifter: X9
    Derailleur: X9
    Cranks: Truvativ Descendant
    BB: Truvativ
    Guide: LG1+ 32-36
    Ring: E-13 36 tooth
    Cassette: Dura-Ace 11-23
    Wheels: Hope hubs, DT spokes, Stans Flows
    Tires: Specialized Storms and Maxxis DHFs, both tubeless
    Pedals: Point 1
    Post: Thomson Elite
    Seat: SDG Ti Fly
    Stem: Deity Fantom

    Weight: 35.7#
    WB: 48.5"
    BB: 13.5"

    Me: 6'4" 215#

    Shock settings:
    33% sag, 150 psi, LSC -12, HSC -10, no turns on boost valve, Rebound -7, all from full closed

    Fork settings:
    25% sag, 2 turns on bottom out, ending stroke rebound 8 clicks from full slow, beginning stroke rebound 13 clicks from full slow, low and high speed compression both 3 clicks from full open

    Ride:
    Came from a sunday, so this thing has a similar feel, except its better everywhere. More bottom out resistance with the more progressive shock curve, corners awesome, levels terrain, super stable... basically it kicks ass and makes me a better rider. Simply put, its just easier to go fast. Can't wait to get it to the park and do some races.

    Thanks to Fanatik Bike for the frame and some parts, and another thanks to Go-Ride for some other parts. Both were great to deal with...

    Looks great! Did you need to run rimstrips to get the Specialized tires to seal up tubeless?

    No. I'm running electrical tape in one and stans tape in the other. I like the electrical tape option, as its obviously cheap, you can multilayer, and you can run the sides of the tape up the sidewall a little to ensure a good seal.

    Took a few days to fully hold air, but I think that's because I hadn't ridden it, and therefore didn't fully distribute the latex inside. Seem good so far, but its early days on this setup. I have however been running electrical tape for a while on my AM bike, and it works great.

    From what I can figure out, the benefits of a rim strip are wasted unless the strip runs up the sides (i.e. a true ghetto set up is pretty much burp free because there is overlap b/w the bead and the strip - not so with normal rim strips). I'm no expert, but if you can run an 823 without a strip, then why not just make sure the air doesn't go through the nipple holes with electrical tape (or buy the stans tape for more $) and run other rims like that too. Guess it depends on tires, but these seem fine.

    Adn thanks Marshall. In case you remember me asking, I was looking for the mastic tape you used, but couldn't find any locally and was in Home Depot anyways, so figured I'd buy some more velcro.

    Home Depot had it here last weekend. It's in the electrical section, then find the electrical tape. It was below all the standard electrical tape on the bottom shelf in a black and yellow Scotch box (it's the only one in a box). Scotch 2228. Good luck.

    My only concern was being able to get it off at some point if the rubber drys out or starts to come off the mastic (the adhesive is strong stuff and a pain to get off from my understanding). I'm curious if it provides any better dampening properties over a neoprene guard. It does looks nice though.

    Even if my '08 DHR is brilliant, the new one looks just too fantastic to be real, and I've never ever ridden it... my roommate did.
    I just finished building a turner 4x though, so no dough for a 3K frame.
    But if I ever change my '08 DHR, it's for this, I'm now a turner biatch; 4x, 5 spot and dhr.

    The big question is:
    What size for me. I'm 180cm / 5'11.
    I ride a '09 5 spot size large, which is really good, but I wish there was a 18 inches instead of 17 or 19, mostly about seattube lenght. Medium would be definitly too small though.
    I have a 4x size long, didn't try it yet but always had 4x bike is size long rather than short.
    And my '08 DHR is medium, which is really good, sometimes in really tight corner I would like longer, but other than this, I really love this frame.
    I've never put a let over a large dh bike, other than a reign x0 large, which felt giant.

    Thanks for the feedback, and enjoy your new toys guys, everybody's jealous.

    Keep in mind that the DHR comes in 4 sizes (S, M, L, XL). I'm 5'10, which is right between the M and L sizes and ended up going with the medium. I'm very happy with my choice, but would want to go with the Large if I were any taller.

    I'm your height, and the M or L size question is one I've spent lots of time on. I rode a large '04 Spot and '06 Six Pack but then started trying, and liking, smaller bikes. I rode a medium '08 DHR, which I chose after demo'ing a large. The large '08 DHR felt really big to me. Now I ride a medium DW DHR and a medium '11 5 Spot and I'm very happy with both.

    Your DHR looks great!

    Next time you change tires get rid of the electrical tape and use Gorilla Tape. Much higher quality than electrical tape, still cheap, fits edge to edge with a single layer, much stronger, seals way better and won't migrate side to side.

    The 1" wide version works great in Flows.
    Can't keep track anymore - Giant, Santa Cruz, Pivot, Yeti, Norco, Salsa, Intense - if it rolls on dirt I like it :thumbsup:

    I also found the 1" stuff at Home Depot, but went on Amazon and got a roll of the 2" stuff. I haven't put it on yet, but have it all ready for my Sunday afternoon project.

    Anyone else is still waiting for their replacement frame? I've been told I won't see mine till end of may. I hope I'll be able to get my old frame back for the first race of the season.

    What is that rubber tube over your derailleur cable? I assume it is to protect the housing/cable from chain wear, but I've never seen anything like that before.
    Why don't you just try running it through the seat stays, i did for mine and it works fine.

    So I see the grease hole to inject new grease into the pivots, but where does the old grease come out? behind?

    Can anyone recommend a grease gun that I can buy online?
