OK, I've been looking into 6 packs and the term RFX keeps coming up, what is this? What is the RFX, is it the same as the 6 pack but just a different name? SOmeone please explain.
RFX was Turners original 6" FR bike (you could also get 5" rockers for it). Not too many were made or sold, and the RFX was discontinued in 2002. The RFX was ahead of it's time.RobsterCraw said:OK, I've been looking into 6 packs and the term RFX keeps coming up, what is this?

The '02 RFX had the same head tube as the DHR, along with straight-gauge top and down tubes. 9.5lbs, but mine seems to be dent-proof.Jerk_Chicken said:BTW- what is the more heavy duty bikr? The original RFX or the new RFX/Six Pack?
My guess is the 'pack is plenty strong but not as dent-proof, mainly in the middle of the tubes between the butts. I guess it's a moot point since people aren't breaking either bike.Jerk_Chicken said:I'm also wondering about how much technology has made bikes better. Lighter, in this case. Undoubtedly, DT has learned much since the days of the old RFX and computer technology, FEA, and real world testing is vastly improved, so perhaps the somewhat significant weight loss isn't followed by an as significant loss in strength?
