    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...

    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.

    I'll take up that challenge since its been over 3hrs and none of the 29er Sultan zealots have replied to you! If youre waiting for DW you'll be likely disapointed, one even if DT did go that way which I seriously doubt and no I have no knowledge other than trusting DTs history and what I think he thinks his customers like, look deeply into why they are loyal! DTs already hinted that there would be no elevated CS to next years model so I read little or no changes myself!

    Also DW would unlikey be imleneted accross the range in the first year, well Id seriously doubt it, I may be wrong but thats a big ask for any manafactuer!
    So more likely the new RFX would see it first though I doubt that too..

    So I'd go for it even if there were to be changes what are you going to miss out on from all reports its one of the best FS 29ers around, the Niners get a great wrap too, but at these prices if I was going for I would be all over it, and the rest of the line up regardless of the future!

    I was in the same postion when bought my second Turner, buy an 06 RFX or wait for the new 07, for me I went back to what I wanted the bike to do and I have not regretted it once, my RFX is more in line possibly with the yet to be 09 RFX so for me it ois ahead of its time, as is the case with all Turners, once you own one for long enough [ride time is neccessary LOL] you learn this its hard to explain but the bikes really get ya if you specc them right for your real ride needs!

    You'll more likely kick yourself for not doing it now and missing out on the great deals, think of what that extra dollars saved could be put into other components like fork, push upgrade what ever, correct specc, setup, suspension tune, tires are the most important thing to a bike that has been designed well not the linkage!

    Thats my thoughts, I'll add one to my stable in about 10+years when Im old enough to be able to use it, I got a few more years in me to abuse the rest of my body thats not yet been broken, so by the time im in my 50s I'll be ready for the 29er thing LOL, I got some more bones to catch EK yet..

    Just kidding, I'd have one now but when its new bike time I'd like to think I can look at an HL or DHR my long winded 2cents

    Ledgendary reliabilty for me in the 29er thing would be one of my main reasons or looking at a Sulty over the rest for me this is one model in FS there's no other choice!

    The Spot and RFX have more machining at the BB/Shock mount. The Sultan and Flux have a welded shock mount... ie: cheaper set up. I believe that is the difference in cost...

    Prices are out of control!

    Brings to mind "Prices are out of control" thread. Tedroy got jumped all over for even suggesting some of us had trouble affording $2k frames.

    Historically that has not been an issue with discontinued Turners.
    DT has always done right by his customers. Why stop now?

    If you really want a Highline, get one now. Historicaly speaking, Most of the discontinued Turners left a lot of fence-sitters banging their heads on the wall the next year. Not that the replacements weren't stellar, but just so different that the ppl who really had their hearts set on the previous design were always glad they got em when they had the chance. The new RFX will be a different beast than the old RFX and the Highline.

    Right now, it's not about which is better, both will be dialed .It's about what you've got the jones for.

    And then there's the price differential...
    Besides if later on you decide you want whatever's next, you'll have no trouble selling a low mileage HL and retain a fair bit of it's value, considering the discount. Plus you'll be riding it while all the fence sitters aren't.

    Thanks 'Zilla. The reason I was asking is I did know a local many years ago that ovallized a pivot hole in his RFX swingarm when it had been discontinued - he was pretty much SOL at that time. Obviously if he had waited things would have turned out, but any resale value of a HL frame will depend on spares imo and only DT can say where that road is going.

    I have a Wilson at the moment for my DH'ing needs, and with it's 64 deg HA holy crap it's fun in the steeps. But to be honest, I miss that turner goodness under me, if I can put it that way. I don't get to DH as often as I would like (kids, work ...) so the crazy slackness is for me a safety margin when my A game isn't around.

    My RFX has been a loyal steed for me since '02 when I got it and the idea of having a lift assist bike that reliable again is eating at my brain.

    The DHR is uber tempting given the geo but the price of the HL is appealing to the wallet, I just don't think the geo of the HL would do it for me as much as the DHR, even if I did put my 40 on the front at full travel. My RFX fills all my freeride & trail bike needs at the moment, the more I think about this the more I see where it's pointing me ...

    It's pretty cool that a bike brand can mess up my head so much.

    That blows. Was it under warranty? I'd imagine if the parts weren't available they'd make a good deal for something else.(if they had something else at the time ... IIRC there was a period they went without FR offering) But you're brah would know better than I. I was just thinking of when the HL chainstays were breaking DT was quick to not only get a improvement replacement out but also replaced any colaterally damaged shocks at no charge.

    <SNIP> I don't get to DH as often as I would like (kids, work ...) so the crazy slackness is for me a safety margin when my A game isn't around.
    I hear that...loud and clear!

    My RFX has been a loyal steed for me since '02 when I got it and the idea of having a lift assist bike that reliable again is eating at my brain.
    My 6pack was my all time favorite bike. felt like a big bomb-proof spot with just enough Dh' in it to keep it fun on the park and FR stuff. Amazing all purpose bike. Just like the '02 is the crown holder for bombproof buildouts. This is sort of what I was getting at about grabbing a winner like the HL before it's gone. IMO it's not as much a "one Bike" like the RFX is but it's glorious at FR'ing and DH'ing.(within my limited experience and skill set)

    Your points about the DHR are very compelling, esp considering your desire for a slacker scooter. You make a strong case going in that direction.

    If you're keeping the '02 RFX I'd say step up to the DHR. You already have a superb trail/freeride bike. Get a full on DH rig. (IMO)
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Too busy racing and winning this weekend on my sultan/F110 to get back to you. Getting back to your question, I have my stock RP23 set at 160 for my weight of 175. I run the rebound 4 out from full. For me this is a perfect XC race set up, I hardly ever touch the propedal lever. I find that when the bike is fully locked out it doesn't climb as well as it does when the suspension is doing its job, steep loose climbs the bike tracks better and doesn't break free vs. when propedal is turned on. I'll be in the 24HOA worlds in 2 weeks and I'll be putting on the CCDB, set it and forget it is what I'm after. I've also run the F135 on the bike for what people call AM type riding and never felt that the rear was lacking. At the price these sultan's are going for it should be a no brainer.

    That blows. Was it under warranty? I'd imagine if the parts weren't available they'd make a good deal for something else.(if they had something else at the time ... IIRC there was a period they went without FR offering) But you're brah would know better than I
    .

    I thought it was simply bad timing, but I remember him being pretty bummed. No warranty issue, he had ridden the bike with a loose pivot bolt which rounded out the hole on the chain stay. I guess it couldn't have affected him that much, he bought a Spot a few years later!

    Your points about the DHR are very compelling, esp considering your desire for a slacker scooter. You make a strong case going in that direction.
    If you're keeping the '02 RFX I'd say step up to the DHR. You already have a superb trail/freeride bike. Get a full on DH rig. (IMO)
    Yeah the more I think about it the more I'm going that way. Not much point for a heavy FR rig around here, I've been there with the RFX and although it was fun, the bike gathered dust most of the time. Now the RFX is almost in the weight range I want for an all rounder so it's time to sort out the gravity rig. Not sure I can swing a new one, that'll take some further number crunching but if I can't, I'll keep my eyes peeled for a used one later in the summer.

    Noticed competitvecyclist has the highline for 1599.00. Does the 20% work on top of their discount?

    No, $1599 is the sale price on that, it's just that it was already on sale before this deal. It's actually 33% off vs. 20% on all their other frames.

    If you really want a Highline, get one now. Historicaly speaking, Most of the discontinued Turners left a lot of fence-sitters banging their heads on the wall the next year. Not that the replacements weren't stellar, but just so different that the ppl who really had their hearts set on the previous design were always glad they got em when they had the chance. The new RFX will be a different beast than the old RFX and the Highline.

    Right now, it's not about which is better, both will be dialed .It's about what you've got the jones for.

    And then there's the price differential...
    Besides if later on you decide you want whatever's next, you'll have no trouble selling a low mileage HL and retain a fair bit of it's value, considering the discount. Plus you'll be riding it while all the fence sitters aren't.
    When they blew out the last of the original RFX's in 03 or 04, I was one of those people that really was kicking myself. I still like the idea of that nearly indestructible mainframe, despite having an 06 that's burly enough.

So, since I have too much inventory I have to sell it.

    I want one!

    I would like to try one them thar sultan's-but I have to wait and see what this settlement (the wreck)has in store. A big wheel sounds fun and you don't see many Turner's where I'm from-especially a 29er. That would would make my T count +1.

    Google is your friend.

    Also, Homebrew was being sarcastic, there will be no DW link '09 Turner frames.

    sorry if my question sounds akward but (and I'm not a **** kicker) does this mean we can expect to see the '09 prices soar?

    rumor has it that Speshy will increase its prices in Europe (dunno about the US) by as much as 20%

    Even mid and low is hurting. Super low for commuting is taking a turn, supposedly.

    Looks like the tax credit didn't help much.
