    “Turner DHR DW-Link”

    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 Review:

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

    “DHR Review”

    The Good:

    Good pedaling platform, neutral feeling, head angle is spot on, fast and stable. Definitely a different bike from the previous DHR.

    The Bad:

    None i can think of so far after ridden the bike for a year now. Maybe i will find one when i try to install the CCDB Air Shock later down the road.

    Overall Review:

    Definitely a great frame even though a little pricy but worth every penny.
