Yay 2007 DX

Well I finally got my torker Dx on friday. I opened it up cut the seat post and put it together. It’s so much better than an Lx hehe. But I looked at it and saw the tyre clearence it’s like crazy! There is like an 1.5"+ clearance! But it feels solid and not overly heavy. The clearance is ugly but the frame is supposedly stronger. I bump my knees a little but oh well life is pain hehe. It’s all good but here is the cool part I ordered it from bicycle source USA on ebay and it said 2006 Torker Unistar Dx but I got the '07! Woot

Re: Yay 2007 DX

Hello,

What specifically makes you say you got a “2007” model?
According to our Torker rep, Torker will no longer be labeling the models by
years.

In addition the “new” shipment from China that contains the new CX SE
(Special Edition) blue/black will only be arriving October 7th. There will
also be an AX model (alloy frame) in the future.

It’s possible someone programmed the computer which generates a sales slip
to say 2007, which would be misleading. Or, they are listing items as 2007
models in order to sell more. (Which we have noticed from some unethical
dealers after being asked about “2007” models a few times.)

Just looking to get more facts out there (and fewer rumors),

The DX with the reinforced frame is what is considered the 2007 model, other than the frame it is the same as the 2006 model so really it is only an update to the '06.

You are lucky you got the 07 frame cause the old one sucks.

my 06 frame has an exesive amount of tire clearence. cant amagine the new ones.

They have a lil more but not much at all, one of my friends has one of the 07s and another of my friends has the 06. I dont know why but the 07 saddle is also softer than the 06, and the frame is basically just reinforced with a cuplingish ring. Still purty nice trials unis for 259. Heavy, but really strong!

Ya I looked at some guy’s 06 and thoguht “well there is a bit of learance there”.
Then I saw this and it’s like crazy! But if it holds up I’ll learn to not hit my knees:D

too bad they cant have the dx with the same clearance of the old model but as strong as the new one

And about 3 pounds lighter;)

ehh
that would onlycost a $100 more :slight_smile:
