2010.

Dear Gnarcore OneTwoThree,
We know you have been a bad boy this year, smoking and drinking while riding and mocking your fellow playmates on mtbr amoungst other things too heinous to list here on this pleasant forum. But IF you were to get your Christmas wish for next year, what exactly does one as gnarcore as you want? I know, you seem to have a perfect bike already but it must not really be perfect or you would not be *****ing and screaming thru your nicotine stained keyboard. I write this request early in the day before the Pabst starts taking effect, so you can concisely explain your ultimate gnarcore bike for schralping the totally gnar and huge mountains that only you have access too in the hopes that my lesser skilled customers can benefit. Oh, pricing is not a point of discussion, we all know that you can afford it with a simple curbing of your expensive habits and I could make it affordable for you with your smokes and sixers if I made it in Taiwan. Since neither change will probably happen, lets keep it to travel, geometry, features and frame weight, you know, gnar core stuff.

Thank you from Christmas future...

DT

I'm going to have to think about this for a bit:D

In the meantime, because my birthday is coming up too:D , I'd like to get an idea on where the new RFX is going. That way my new years resolution to quite smoking, quite drinking, and cancel my Comcast subscription is justified:thumbsup: .

If I can't manage to stay on the wagon, I've got an xtra youngen that will prolly fetch a fair penny on the slave market. Do you think this will cover it...or, will I have to pimp notaknob,,,AGAIN:lol:

123 - how much money will you save if you quit (not quite) the cigs? how much money have you spent on them in 09? after slating the DW-L how come you may be interested in a DW RFX? perhaps you can cancel your ISP and do us all a favour...

Don't quit the cancer-sticks 123; they have served Smokestackcorn well for all these decades and he's a DH champion.

You have annoyed many poeple on this board and sure over did it but DT recognized he can not ignore you any more. It sure has to do with your riding capabilities but also with your skin thickness. Not too many could stay active on this board with the level of heat you've suffered. Now DW maybe the best sus system?, but I believe you have suggested that Turner bikes stands out for other reasons as well. BTW, your ABQ riding posts are inspiring regardless of the bikes. Keep it coming

DT, you totally freaked 123 out. I just ran into him on a super gnar core snow ride and he was riding his AM/FR Schwinn single speed. I didn't have a camera but I think he decided to ride something other than his Turners because you smacked his nose with the newspaper.

Happy Christmas!

Not 123, but here is my take on it.

There are 2 levels of procore, that could be added -

DW RFX
tapered headtube
6.5" of rear wheel travel
73mm BB/142mm rear spacing
13.9"-14.1" BB height
66.5-67.5 degree headtube angle with 170mm fork
Un-interupted seat tube
cable guides for seat dropper post
ICGS 05
around 8-8.5lbs frame weight


super gnarcore
1.5" headtube
83mm BB/150mm rear end
7.5"-8.0" of travel out of a 3-3.5" stroke shoc
horizontal linkage driven shock
65-66 degree headtube angle with 185-200mm fork
ICGS 05
un-interupted seat tube
14.2"-14.4" BB height
room for 2.7-2.8 tires
10.5-11.25lbs frame
?internal gear box?
