    Turner DHR Sizing?

    Since MTBR's search function is super accurate posting this is saving time.

    The Flame retardant suit is on...Here it goes.

    Could someone who is 5'10 ride a small DHR?

    Does anyone have the specs for the 03' years? I really like the split TT design compared to the newer models and would like an 03' if I can find one. It would be a bummer to paint and build a frame to come up short. Here is something Craig at Avalanche racing said " the older DHR's were actually plusher than the newer DHR designs" I dunno?

    Thanks for any insight

    do an advanced search in the Turner forum for all posts by user kidwoo.
    I'd say no, but if I win that auction I'll let you try it .

    I think that you are a little too big for a small, unless you live fery small bikes. Everyone that I know from about 5' 9" up to about 6' 2" rides a medium. As far as the 03', I think that the geo is essentially the same as the current frame. The big change came between the '02 and '03.

    The older frames like the 01' and 02' had a different linkage that was essentially upside down from the current. I believe that these are the 'older DHR's' that Craig is talking about. These bikes had a different progressivness to them. I am sure that a quick call to DT would lead to much info about the rate curves of these frames, or Daren @ Push as he has done LOTS of data acqusition with atleast the current version.
