    she was riding a Giant DH before and feels this fits her better and is really liking the 4-6 pound weight loss. Her other bike is a SC Bullit.
    she's only 5'2" so finding bikes that fit her are really tuff.

    umm sadly my bike is pretty coordinated too
    sorry about the Intense posted in the Turner forum.

    it was nice trying the 2 bikes back to back.....

    Seeing those DHR's gives me goose-bumps. Big Ted... yours especially, it looks built just right. We shouldn't need a ride report to know what's going on with those bikes

    You mean for TOTM? I dunno, I could polish it up and get better pics, but I'm pretty sure I'd have more fun riding it. Both my rfx an my dhr get babied in terms of tuning and maintenance, but both get ridden pretty hard and have the scars to show for it. They're not gonna win any beauty contests, which is fine by me. Maybe this evening I'll get the spit rag out just for you TA...

    Fair enough, no pressure, but I agree with highroller it looks right a riders DH build I would voe for it, I like it too, not always the bright n shiny things for some Homers

    Enjoy that puppy shes a ripper!

    Report HR was more about actual ride piccs no need to sell me the bike I just like seeing what I can of em in action, a few of the boys post some of them now and again but would love to see more, understand riding is more important Im down with that...chur.

    OK now without the sarcasm!
    They turn like they are on rails. Some have even gone as far as saying they "shoot you out of corners".
    Jump: Very stable in the air but still retain a nice light "chuckable" feeling. Very confidence inspiring.
    Descend: With the new World Cup geometry they really do work better than the older versions when pointed down the hill.
    I find it very easy to make direction changes in rock gardens due I guess to the stiff rear end and lighter weight. Only downside I found after my old one was the tendancy to slap pedals as the bottom bracket is lower, but a crash or two later and some 165mm cranks instead of the 170s I was running before and all is well!
