    20% off Turner is BLOWING out frames

    I don't usually post things up here from a sales point, because this is a forum for people to discuss things, but I was just sent this email from Turner and this deal is probably worth every previous Turner owner to look at or send it along to those who wanted a Turner and maybe couldn't afford it. Just about every size of every model available, jump on it while you can. You can order from me at Wrench Science 1.866.497.3624 x 207

    Funny question maybe, but why would an inventory blowout sale only be good until Aug 31st? Wouldn't you want to just sell them until they are gone at those prices?

    Just saying

    It looks like they just went back to the old prices before the recent price hike. Or maybe clearing out for the new dw_link bikes coming this fall...

    Even lower price. 5.5 spot before the price increase was $1899 it went up to $2199 on sale for $1719.

    Looks like Turner pricing scheme can be correlated to wheel travel. Flux being cheaper is probably related to wheel size.

    I'm going to hold out for the DW_link models as I think the vastly superior suspension performance will be worth the premium.

    economics

    muddy is right, 6 months from now these will be gone and hopefully we will have our purchasing figured out for the 'new' economy. The beaatch is that we placed orders for frames we are recieving now, before Christmas. Even though we ordered conservative in frame #s, none of us really thought that fuel prices would jump like they have and the press would lead us all to believe the sky is falling. So, since I have too much inventory I have to sell it.

    Happy trails

    Highline Parts?

    So because the HL is discontinued, what sort of window will there be for parts in the future?
    Folks that bought Spots or RFXs in the past have been pretty darn lucky to be able to hook up newer (tnt) rear ends if needed, or front ends for that matter.

    For anyone buying a HL today, if they trash something on it in a year or two will they be SOL?

    ...these prices sure are tempting ....

    Please forgive my ignorance..

    I WAS w/in a day or two of ordering a RIP9 frame. I originally was more interested in the Sultan, but at $400-$500 more, I couldn't justify it. Now I see this. But forgive my ignorance, are the TNT bikes all going to become DW bikes this year. If so, is it due to far superior suspension or does it have something to do with the whole licensing of suspension rights (however all that actually works???), or both. I guess it boils down to this: Am I going to be kicking myself in 6 mo. for not waiting for the end all, be all 29er? Or patting myself on the back for getting one of the best bikes in its class for an amazing price? Honest opinions are greatly appreciated. Also, how plush or firm is the ride characteristics of the Sultan when properly sagged. It would have a WB 110 on it. Thanks again.
