    Does your wife ride a Turner?

    Mine rides an old BURNER . She never talks about upgrades and loves her bike as is

    Nope. She's still on her blur. I would like to get her on something different (blur pivots suck for her mechanic = me), but that's a process. She's more interested in riding than getting new gear, as strange as that sounds. I think a small 5spot would be interesting for her, although the standover might not work for her. A hint of some changes for next year, however, gives me some hope. She also has lots of deal opportunities in the bike world (not Turner though) that will make a Turner a harder sell.

    Yup. She rides a Burner as well. I offered to buy her a new Flux and she got very defensive: "There's nothing wrong w/ my bike!" Close to 5 years on it now and I'm not even sure I've greased the bushings more than once or twice. 120 pounders don't break many frames

    Chicks are so weird! Ditto in my world. Happily, new Turners just sort of show up periodically around here and she learns to like it. Right now she has a 5-Spot and a 7-Pack, and if a small Flux fell into my lap, she'd rock that one too.

    Barny pics available on request.

    Intense Spider with 100 mm fork to slow things down a bit. Also, a full Enduro bearing kit, so her mechanic (also = me) can fuss over his own bikes.

    Last year she picked up my Sultan for some reason, and declared she might like a Flux. Why, you ask? Why because she liked how the shock placement made it easier to pick up the bike than her Spider.

    Different priorities, for sure!

    Felt Virtue 4 thanks to Chad @ Red Barn.

    She is loving it so far. Just trying to get over that endurance hurdle.

    Yep.

    RFX for trail work, a Highline for the rougher stuff and a DHR for racing.

    Bikes

    Yup, she was on a 02 up until last fall when we pick up one the the 5 Spot demo bikes for her. She originally resited, giving the old "my bike is fine". But once she rode the 5 spot she was very impressed.

    Not entirely true... I've got my wife many purty rocks... she never turns one of those down. But she sees no need to upgrade the bike.

    She used to ride a 5spot.



    Now she rides a Demo 7 for DH and an Enduro SL for her trailbike, but spends most of her time on her singlespeed or her BMX bike.

    Yep...built her up an O2! She loves it and I like to show it off (the bike) but can't upload pics. Anyway, it is amazing how much more she liked to ride after I got her the O2.

    My wife rides a 2006 small Flux and she loves it!!! She specifically asked for the pink CK headset. She was riding a KHS team soft tail and one day out of the blue she asked me why I was always riding on "killer bikes" and said I want a turner too - it looks like they rock!!! That was the chick bike talk I got and a few days later the turner frame was ordered.
    Sit and spin my ass...
