    I was wondering who was going to be first to build up a Turner with those rims. Looks to be you. Those are the XC versions, no? I've been eyeballing the All Mtn version and it's 32mm width, but I think I'd like to at least hear about a couple of people riding them, before I plunk down that much $$$.

    Sweetest Flux evah!

    Wow, very nice! Did you get a weight on the wheels and/or bike?

    Good job! Ride

    The only compromise made in this build was to my bank account! All components are readily available, light, and reliable. The same weight (23 lbs) could be achieved without the $2400 wheelset by going with crossmax slr, but then it wouldn't be stealth.

    The ride is astounding. No need to invoke pro pedal lever at all. I find it is best to let the DW rear track the terrain and do it's thing. This bike will see service as an XC racer, and with a wheel and tire swap as a Super D racer. This bike climbs better than a Nitrous (my former Turner), and descends like a Spot. An extraordinary balance between XC power and trail bike prowess.

    didn't think this was possible. i vote TOM on stealth. well done OP.

    what do you think of a 120mm fork on this?

    Darth Flux, with this new super weapon, the Rebels will not stand a chance.

    What about going REALLY stealthy and remove decals where applicable?

    It descends SO well as is, I can't imagine compromising its precise steering with a 120 fork. It has to be ridden to be believed! Honestly, I've parked my trail bike and have taken to trail riding this instead. It is very versatile and prefectly balanced as delivered with 100mm fork.
