    Are POMs allowed or is it Kiwis only?

    Just picked this up, it's more in line with my skills and the type of riding I do.

    TA, your pic of the guys sitting down in the forest has had the couches photoshopped out. Is Su Ling around?

    Apteryx's pic needs to be removed from the list due to the protective covering he put over the couch.

    I call couch dab.

    The Sultan only rides leather.

    Sheesh SBK, that Sultan makes a man go weak at the knees, truly. And not because of BZ's feather mask fetish... Beautiful Steed...

    Its a clean shot - thats not protection, its a faux fur throw to match the faux bar. I thought Homers knew how to accessorize!

    Thanks Whafe, I'm truly digging that bike so far. A friend helped set it up tubeless/Stans, and it's one fast-rolling, bump/root eatin' machine. A really great bike to ride and enjoy the trails!

    I often think of 29er's, as anyone does, apart from some of the bling bling Ti 29er's, your bike is the nicest looking 29er I have seen, really mean that.... The colour of the frame and fork...

    aaarrggghhhh, as we say in New Zealand, "its the ducks nuts"....

    CF, there will be no melt down, this is not a homers only thread..... Need a few Nicolai's here to even things up......................... You know as well as I do, that you tend to bite real good, when ya Homer buddies lay down a burly trail with a BIG baited hook.....

    I never get the, your bike is a Jamis from the Homer peeps....

    So post up CF, come out and play....

    my turn

    O-k Homers, here's my take on this whole "couch thing."

    For those with too much free time in their cubicles - I know there are no grips, shifter cables, chain, and the brake line zip ties need to be cut. I KNOW!!! I did that after I took this shot, I was losing light last night and I wanted to get the photo before it got dark.

    I actaully went on a short midnight session around downtown Anchorage trying to get the shifting tuned. In true Homer fashion, it felt GREAT dropping off curbs and going down a couple steps that must have been at least 12 feet (measured in CCU's).

    Dang Harriet, where'd the face bouncing on that cool RED couch come from?

    um...Chris...i hate to be the one to tell you...but you're missing grips, and shifter cables, and a chain...and you may want to cut those brake line zip ties while you're at it!

    It started as a Raceface, but the chain rubbed on it when I was in the middle ring and the 11t in the rear, so I hit the backside with a sander to round it off a bit so the chain wouldn't rub. Since I had it off and since I hated the goofy white RF logo on the black background, I hit the front with the sander too. Then I busted a little steel wool to smooth the finish. Looks trick.

    Finally, my couch.

    I just picked this up today, crazy thing is I'm still waiting for my 2007 med. deep red Spot. But I got this to help me throught the next month or two of waiting, my LBS made me a offer I couldn't refuse. I will be selling this when the other frame arrives, can't afford two Turners at this time. But for now I can at least ride.

    I bet you will manage yourself to keep the both of them, I was in the same dilema as you, I am waiting for my medium 5Spot to arrive, in the mean time I got my 6pack just to keep on riding, and let me tell you this thing is like a virus. Mine have coil both font and rear and I am already understand why some choose coil over air althogh the weitgh increment, not to mention the 6" of rear travel said that, I found the way to built the Spot too when it arrives.
    Enjoy it I am sure you will

    She's been built.

    She's been built and ridden hard a few times. My first Turner and what an amazing bike. First ride felt like riding a old friend.

    I wanna play too but the wife is power whining at the thought of my bike on the couch.

    I wasn't paying her much attention (we've been married 10 years) but I gathered something about the couch being new and my RFX dirty.

    I need your support to help sway the wife to let me get the needed couch shot that will allow me to join the elite society that is the Homers.

    Its not too dirty is it?
    You'd have it on your couch right?

    ORVH, What is up with those rockers. My frame is a 2005 and yet all the other pix I see have black rockers. Perhaps someone, who knows Turners better than I , can shed some light on this.

    This is my baby.

    This is my baby. I have waited for years to have a ride this sweet. I am about 255 soaking wet and live in the Denver metro area. Trails are very rocky and technical. Way out of the league for my original steed an S Works FSR (3.75 inches of travel). And now I can almost tackle anything (that I donít freak out onÖand there is a lot of that around here!)
    - King hubs 36 hole 14 straight gauge brass nipples and King head set
    - Rock Shox Revelation fork
    - Thomson stem and post
    - Shimano XT derailleurís, chain cassette and LX cranks with bash guard Sram X7 shifters
    - Avid Juicy 7ís 203/185ís
    - WTB race saddle
    - Kenda Nevegals DTC 2.35 by far nicest tires yet and got a set for 29 bucks on close out @ REI!!! And lite weight tubes.
    - Easton 50 alloy high risers lock on Oury grips
    - Shimano 520 clip less pedals
