Dirt Rag in the USA have just reviewed the Turner DHR and loved it.

Here is what Justin Steiner from Dirt Rag had to say about the bike.

Turner Bikes lays claim to offering the world's first production downhill bike, so it's no surprise David Turner continues to push the limits of production race bikes. After all, the downhill market has evolved substantially since 1996 when Turner's Afterburner delivered a whopping 3.6" of rear wheel travel. With the 2011 release of the DHR, short for downhill racer (surprise!), Turner is again on the forefront of DH race bike evolution. This third generation of the DHR is redefining what it means to be slack, low and long with a 63¡ headtube angle, a 342.9mm (13.5") unsagged bottom bracket, and 1188.72mm (46.8") wheelbase on my size medium test bike. There certainly are many bikes on the market offering one or two of these characteristics, but few offer such an aggressive combination. Turner wanted to be on the leading edge of what he sees as the trend toward lower and slacker bikes. "We wanted an aggressive bike, the dw-link allowed [us] to go more aggressive than in the past," says Turner.
