whoa! is that a custom frame you designed? and put together? What did software did you use to design it? How do you get the right thickness you want? Single pivot? Sweeet!

is this guy serious?

i sure hope not….for his sake, at least…

Damn you connor, for making me re-think my grand scheme for bike acquisitions!

Why not? Look at the pic, it's obviously taken from a design area of some sort, and considering there's no badge in the images it's not unreasonable to think that it's designed by ATB.

Dave Turner doesn't F around. He is Serious Business.. ~$2500 US, pretty fair for a full on race bike. I love my older one..

i was serious. under the circumstances it seemed reasonable. i get the impression that there are at least a few engineers around here and coming with a bike design would take a bit of time, but isnt far fetched. once i get my degree, have the time and access to a machine shop id like to give it a try.

uhh….?

hahaha, have you EVER seen a Turner DHR before? they haven't changed that much for 2007, gimme a break. if you know someone designing bikes that complicated, professional, and precise, and the only outlet they have is posting it on a bulletin board, let me know! i couldn't imagine someone with the engineering knowledge like that be so simple-minded about how to go about marketing his new frame design.

OK, top three things to identify a Turner DHR:

  1. Rectangular tubes
  2. 1.5" headtube
  3. Massive decals all over the frame proclaiming it to be a DHR from Turner

That pic of the 07 has none of those.

And yes, this BB has had some prototype shots creep on it in the past, it's also had posts from some pretty talented welders showing off their work.

So when someone sees a new frame that they can't identify, be it because it's new or because it's a boutique frame (and this is both), and that person expresses a genuine interest in the elements of design, perhaps posting dick-ish comments isn't the best way to keep the conversation moving.

I think we're all missing the real point, that this is probably top 3 sickest DH bikes for 07..

I still like the Sunn Radical too..

Too true.

What's the third? Intense Socom? Lapierre DH-230?

atb may not be a genius, but he does play one in the local community theatre group. I have no doubts he could design that bike on his lunch break at work between slagging connor and building shoe lifts so he can finally break the 5'2" barrier.

I think that we are all missing the real point, and that is that atb makes really nice frames.
