The New 2011 DHR by Turner is a fully supped-up DW-link downhill bike. It should be shipping out in the next few weeks and is going to be issued in Black anodized option ($3150) and Raw ($3100). It will also be available in various sizes; S, M, L and XL. The new DHR is equipped with Dave Weagle’s DW-link to make its 8.3” travel manageable and easy to maneuver.
The 2011 Turner DHR downhill bike weighs a little over 10 lbs and has Fox shock and a steel spring. It has a tapered tube with a 63.3 head angle and uses a Boxxer team fork. It is designed and engineered from seatstay to bottom bracket that could maintain Pivot and shock mass centralized keeping the bike stiffer and lighter. It is custom-Turner-built that could accommodate different shock of your choice and could be fitted to a small fender to keep your shocks from getting muddied or covered with rocks and dirt.
The new features include the Turnerbuilt sealing and greasing system fitted to a large sealed bearing for durability and longer use. The black Pivot coverings are in use instead of the bearing’s dust shield and protect it from water, dirt, rocks and mud. A detachable grease port in the center of the cap allows you to rid the bearings of foreign elements and put fresh grease in. In case the brake mounting threads are disabled, it could be replaced due to its post mounted brake fitting and replaceable barrels.
Up front is a 1.5” head tube that permits the rider to spec the angled reducer head set cups to adjust the DHR to the rider’s needs like going in full chopper mode defending what the terrain requires. The stock bottom bracket height is at 13.4” and has compact dropouts with thru-Axle 12x150mm and a 17.4” chainstay. It is low in frame and its cables from front to rear are well fitted and tidy.
