    Christmas at Turner - Ask Santa

    In the Spirit of Christmas, I'd like to 'Ask Santa' for some purely-fanciful presents.

    Dear Santa:

    I'd like a:

    Carbon 5.Spot,
    -150mm Travel
    -Room for a CCDBa
    -Journal bearings
    -One piece carbon rockers with lateral play adjuster
    -68* HTA
    -13.75" Bottom bracket height (I live in New England after all, but you knew that)
    -26" wheels please, but 650b is OK.
    -Thru Axle
    -External cable routing

    Oh and a DHR too!

    Thanks Santa.

    (Who's next?)

    The bushings never need adjustment once they're the proper length. It's really easy and they're designed to be user serviceable. You have one where the inner bushing is too long, rub the end on sandpaper until it's only a hair too long.

    It'll be a sad day when the 5 Spot is made of carbon. It really doesn't fit the model of a purely functional workhorse, style be damned. To each his own I guess.

    This hasn't been my experience... I have lateral play develop on a regular basis and as a result I end up shimming the rocker link to eliminate it.

    And I currently own a 2011 5.Spot and I think the allow model should stay alongside the carbon version. Different horses for different courses.

    I'd ask that my current Turner continues to give me the joy that it has for years to come. I don't need a bike now that I've found my Turner!

    not much

    How about a hydroformed top tube on the small Burner and a bump in travel to match the Fox forks

    Carbon 100 mm 29er -- for me.

    Carbon 100 mm 650b -- for my wife.

    Sultan with 0.5" lower BB when fitted with a 140 mm fork -- aluminum still great here!

    I hope Dave has a relaxing holiday from all of us Turner aficionados. Let the hounding resume in the New Year, then we can continue the relentless pursuit for our new 650B and 29r carbon offerings. Rest now Dave - the New Year is coming soon. Poor guy.

    My 2008 RFX is in for a repair right now so I am willing to trade!
