    Sold my DHR to a young guy that works with me. He brought it to work the other day and when we put it in the stand there was a line around the BB junction where the downtube joins. Are these known to crack here?

    Reason I'm asking is this. I had the frame powered again 2 years ago. I didn't ride the bike super hard, nor did this kid (who's 130lbs). Is it more likely that it has four layers of powercoat and the top coat has cracked?

    Im no expert, but i thought PC was somewhat flexible...

    I've heard if you send it to turner, they can diagnose and repair if needed.

    Good luck man- its a crummy feeling when that happens to a buddy you sell to.

    Sorry to hear Dave. IF nothing else I am sure if he contacted Turner they would do a Crash Replacement on the Swing arm. Good luck, keep us updated.

    Unlike most company's, Turner has an consistantly excellent rep for repairing and repainting your frame for a minimal cost really. Send them an email.
