Turner 2002 DHR Downhill Full Suspension

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $2395.00

Product Description

This is the real thing, designed specifically for downhill racing. Turner pioneered the production DH frame with the Afterburner that grabbed a Silver Medal in the 1995 World Championship. Since then we have been watching and listening to the racers, compiling information for the ultimate downhill race bike in the next millennium. The list of priorities in design were, low stand over height for safety, lower weight placement for quick handling, 14" bottom bracket height for stability in corners, 7" fork compatibility, shock placement protected from roost- (shock rebuilds are very expensive!) and super rigidity for precise handling. Resisting pedal induced bob has always been a major feature with Turner bikes and the DH Racer is no exception. This trait gives you a noticeable advantage on the flat sections of a race course. The linkage pivots on needle bearings with Turner design seals and of course, grease fittings. Each of the bearings we use will carry 4x the load of ball bearings and cost 6x as much, you won’t have to replace these every 3 months because of pitting and rust! Our reputation has been built on the quality of our design and manufacturing, the DH Racer is dedicated to someone who is interested in training and racing not monkeying around with their frame. It will fit a 2.7" rear tire nicely, for correct geometry use a Downhill fork from Manitou, Marzocchi or Rock Shox.

(price listed is for frame only)
