The more that I look at it the more I liked the previous version. Oh, well. I guess if that is the final design then I will have to make due. The previous version looked more "lean and mean" where this version is quite boxy. Alomst Sunday-ish.

I was fond of the original proto's lines as well, but the more I look at the new one the more it grows on me.
The bike has to be ridden to understand how well it works, better than any other dh bike I have spent time on by far.

I have heard 9.5# with shock and steel spring. Turner isn't releasing any weight estimates officially (as far as I know), so we will have to wait and see to know for sure.

The ride on the original proto was very inspiring when I put in a few runs on one at the US Open. So, if it rides like V1 then I'm sure that it will "grow" on me.

Whats the deal with their freeride frame option? Seems like a gap between the RFX and DHR. I dig the DHR but dont do full DH so wont be part of my stable.

Based on what? I'm going out on a limb and assuming that you haven't ridden this iteration of the proto yet.
