Wow! 300 posts in the Turner-DW speculation thread but I'm afraid everyone got it wrong.

Word on the street is EW will be sporting the new and improved, 111% efficient bike. It will be called the Dave Instant Center Kinematics, D.I.C.K., for short.

It combines the geniuses of DW axle path and ICT Kinematics to create the most efficient mtb to date. They predict this will change the future of the sport. "The design is based on solid newtonian physics and is by far the most efficient bike uphill and downhill. Heck it practically pedals for you"; said ET. "I am happy with the collaboration and glad we were able to combine such magnificent designs that has resulted in not only a great bike but yet another patent." he added.

Here's a photo of the Prototype. (no it is not photochop):

LOL!!!

So will Tony be giving up ICT? Will DT get the HL back? will Horst join in and make it an manage du trois? Can anyone tell me how to tie my shoe?

Gaw, if you think the marketing hype was thick before, just wait till TE gets ahold of it.

BTW is it me or do those stanchions look dented?

One thing is certain about this bike;

If ICT was up to 100% efficient....the new bike will be more.

I guess EW took the homer DW link thread too seriously :D
And Dave Weagle will have to start paying EW for the patent.

Maybe we should start a pool on how long it'll take before DW and TE try to choke each other.

My guess is one week after TE publishes DW's email addy for warranty claims. :D :p

The technology itself is top secret though:
"Super Human Manipulation Utilizing Classified Kinematics".

Does the D.I.C.K come with hard and soft settings?
IIRC, the frame comes with a lifetime supply of viagra :thumbsup:

hhmmm, looks eerily similar to my Proto, w/ UHS (unified homer suspension)?

Well the Sunday is being replaced by the Monday, if you know what I mean ;)

Well, I can't say too much right now but while the UnitedHomerSuspension looks similar to the D.I.C.K-link, it's not the same. Turner has done lots of analysis and determined that the UHS is 99% as effective as the D.I.C.K and noone can notice any real world difference between the two.

No, ICT is integrated into the D.I.C.K.. Some would call it a super efficient D.I.C.K.; rigid when climbing and soft and gentle coming down.

I doubt DT will even get back the HL but a menage au toir sounds good as the D.I.C.K. is familiar with such arrangements. Maybe it'll finally PUSH the efficiency to an all time high of 112%.

No hype here, it'll all based on proven physics.

That's just dirt on the stanchions.

Wait a minuet... ppl have been calling the Homers DICKS all along... there's gotta be a copyright infringement in there somewhere.

dammit....I hope I can get my deposit back....

You want your D.I.C.K. deposit back? Some of us don't mind having this sort of expenditure swallowed up during the negotiating process.

Is that D.I.C.K a 6"model?
It was originally 6" but was enlarged to 7"
