Actually, those things are quite sturdy. And if you can't afford it, don't buy it. Easy. Working in a bike shop, we've had lot's of guys coming in after falling in groups where a lot of wired derraileurs were broken, and the Di2's were just fine, except for some cosmetical damage. Also, if you break a derraileur, you don't have to buy the whole system again, just the part that actually broken, which seldom amounts to 1000$. Do you guys buy new crank, casette, shifters and chain if you break a derraileur?

I did. Still do.

If it's anything near as good as it is on roadbikes it's gonna be killer. I'm riding 1x10 now and never wished for more, so 1x11 with supersmooth shifting and no wires to fuck up would be niceness. (Yes, I'm a bike mechaninc and I know how to adjust a derraileur, I just don't like to.)

Some extra info:

To anyone who's thinking about goin to Norway: This is in Oslo, the capitol of Norway, the shutteling for these trails is by subway, which you can catch from the city centrum. Very easy access.

Thank you for putting several pictures and text on one page, so I don't have to klick through everything to read what's interesting.

Unless he's an amputee, I guess not only a chain device needs to be fitted, but a left crank arm as well.

Will be interesting to see the production version. Knowing GT, it'll probably be full carbon as the rear triangle is already in place in carbon on both this and the DH-bike.

Is that a floating rear shock mount I see? The rear pivots looks somewhat like the location of the dropped down FSR of the Norco Aurum. Should be an interesting combination of leverage ratio and axle path.

...and when the park is not open, we put our bikes on the subway, go to Frognerseteren, ride down trails on the other side of the mountain to Midtstuen, get on the subway and repeat. Looking forward to the new chairlift opens next year.

Great series guys!

The hafjell track is far from your ordinary bike park DH-track (crankworx?). The track has been raced on in the european champs + nordic champs before and is among riders concidered to be plain kick ass.

Don't nock it until you've tried it. The film doesn't show how Steep, technical and fast the woods and rocky sections are. It is a challenge for every level of rider and if you want bike park, ride the other trails there like the roller coaster and you'll see what bike park is all...more

Turner DHR DW-Link

Rating:

The Good: Pedals like a hardtail, corners like a dream, stable yet nimble. Geometry is spot on and I felt at home at once on it. Looks good as well and the attention to detail is extensive. Grease ports works great and the pivots are easy to maintain.

The Bad: Costs fair bit of change, but as I see it, it's a frame that should hold it's own for a couple of years without the need for switching every season. Chainguide needs to be removed to access lower front right pivot grease port.

Overall: A brilliant piece of craftsmanship, a dream to ride and bike worth drooling for. If you can afford it, get it.
