    First Nitrous Prototype

    Here are the first photos of our Nitrous Prototype. It is a 3.1" Ultra Lite XC race bike. You will see these raced this season by Team Maxxis riders Geoff Kabush and Cesar Grajales. We worked very hard to reduce the weight further than any frame we have ever produced in the past. The large frame with shock, seat collar, and bottle bolts weighed in at 4.600 lbs.

    Is that an anodized finish?

    Nice! What about a total weight as is. I bet if you polished the rear end you'd save another pound or so .

    Wow! Pardon my ignorance, but would that make it the lightest 3" travel frame ever?

    Total weight as pictured is 22.5 lbs. It is ano so polishing would not save any weight.

    that is crazy lite!

    sub 5lb fully with real shock and linkage? man, that's unbelievably lite. Looks like the Horst link is shorter. Can you spill the beans on the fox shock and the dual knobs?
    So the inevitable question is, what's the weight limit on this ultralite?

    thanks,

    -Sp

    ps, that seatpost is sky high!

    Literally. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I won't believe that weight until the production models are out. The weights posted on the website for the current models seem accurate, so maybe there is cause for hope. However, to best the Burner by a pound and a half (over 25% of the frame's weight) and a Truth by a good pound? It looks to be all aluminum too, right, no carbon fiber? All the better in my book, but all the more amazing if 4.6 lbs can be had.
    Too bad I've been completely won over by 29" wheels for XC racing, and am leaning towards the big wheels for my full suspension trail bike as well, as much as I'd hate to see my Turner go. I'd certainly be the first in line for a 29" Turner if it ever became available: Burner, Nitrous, Spot, you name it, I'm there. Until then I'll day dream about a sub twenty pound 26" Nitrous.

    What's with the shock dial?

    Is that just the rebound dial, or is this the prototype for the adjustable platform Float?

    Nice color!
    Now, can we send our 'Spots back to get them gold anodized?

    First medium frame onthe scale

    Here is the first medium frame assemble. I will be honest we don't know if a rider weight limit. The large is Greg's personal bike, he is 215 lbs. Our thought is that if it holds up for him it will far outlast any 160 lb leg shaver. The rear shock is a Fox RP3, you may want to contact them to get the low down. As far as being lighter than the Burner, it is not even on the same sheet of paper. We took everything we have done for the past 10 years and thought how to make it lighter. We then had an outside engineer take an even closer look to be certain we were on the right track. These are definitely prototypes and ment for that purpose. We will use them to learn where to go for production.

    That's lovely.

    Any insights on the Highline That's the frame I'm really interested to see! Can't decide whether to hold off for one, or to get a Devinci.

    Thats the Sh!t indeed, totally amazing looking bike, and I look forward to hearing some rider details on it - In particular with regards to stiffens and durability which will no doubt be top notch coming from Turner.

    God good, does this mean I am going to toy with selling my Ellsworth???

    I agree, if it rides really good too like the spot, that frame will really sell over the likes of the Fuel, Truth, Spider for the weight conscious in particular if they can achieve the weight demonstrated here. - 4" travel would be nice though..

    We hope to show the Highline protos in July. Production frames hopefully in Nov. As for comparing it to a Truth, and Spider. Those are what we would consider the average joe trail bike. This is the frame for the guy who spends 4 of his 6 riding days on a road bike only to go and spank the locals in the XC race. With that said 4" is not really an option on that frame. Weight was the main goal and the biggest way to achive it is stay short travel to match an XC race fork.

    The rear end looks to be kinda noodley. The seat and chainstays seem pretty small. Especially if you're expecting to have pros torquing the big ring!

    I like the idea of the bike tho. Simple and no gimmicks. Prolly using bushing in the linkages to keep weight down, but that's ok for a race bike. The problem there is you'll have the ww trail rider purchasing this bike, not performing any maintence on it, and complaining about durability.

    Where does the Burner stand?

    So once the Nitrous goes into production, what will happen to the Burner? They are similar as far as travel goes, so will the burners be bumped up to 4"? Will some kind of upgrade kit be available to burner owners who wants 4" of travel. I'm just curious because I just bought a Burner and I'm interested in knowing if there will be any changes to it in the future.

    Thanks

    The Burner is a trail bike, this is an XC race bike. This is for the no holds bared racer looking to be atop the podium. As for the future of the Burner.....currently it is what it is and we do not anticipate building any more.

    so what happens from a warranty perspective

    If the Burner is no longer going to be manufactured....then (Knock on wood) if my Burner were to fail (i.e. front or rear cracked frame) are you going to be keeping replacement parts for 2 years from your last production run? I just want to make sure we don't have another "Ell***th" type "you must pay for the upgrade" scenario.

    What happens is that Turner takes care of you. This was one of the main reasons I bought a Burner.

    First off the Burner is a bit overbuilt so we anticipate a very small rate of failure. The bike is based on those we have built for years and we pretty much know what they can and can't do. If the bike fails within the warranty period we will replace it. With what??? It will be a decision made after talking to the person who broke the frame. Turner frames are as durable as anything on the market so what we have found is that the majority of failures occur when the rider is riding outside what the bike was designed for. Here is an example. When I first began working for David, we had a Canadian customer call with a broken Stinger. He sent us the frame along with a photo of the fully built bike. He had a dual crown SID with Shimano flat pedals and rode with his buddies on longer travel frames. He rode drops, log shutes, and ladders on a regular basis. Even though he bought the wrong bike, we still replaced it but chose to do it with an RFX. A bike more well suited to his riding style.

    Bottom line: we take care of our bikes, if it brakes we will take care of it. With that said, hitting the garage with the bike attached to the roof is not covered!

    Funny how a bike that is lite, strong, and great handling becomes the Black Sheep. It was the travel that was the demise of the Burner. Another .4" and I think we would have had a winner!

    I'm just kidding about the black sheep part. I absolutely love the bike and love the fact that at 225 pounds, I do not need to worry about it being fragile. It handles great, climbs great and the only things that would improve it would be 4" rockers and a faster rider (well the fox shock having to be fixed kinda sucked, but it was there and back in less than a week).

    Just out of curiousity (assuming you are willing to answer) how many Burners were sold? How many 5 spots? Have you considered re-releasing the burner with 4" travel.

    Sub-22

    thanks,

    ps, that seatpost is sky high!
    The total weight seems a little optimistic with disk brakes but it is ballpark right: my 5-spot with a 7.25 frame is currently at 25.75, save 1.2 for the fork (Z1 MCR vs SID) and 2.65 for the frame = 3.85 and you get down to 21.9 vs 22.6 ... so Sub-22 is possible with V-brakes.

    Like i said, I have no idea what your saying.

    That Nitrous is a damn light bike. Perhaps only about 1 pound heavier in its prototype form than a hardtail. That can build a seriously light FS bike.
    A Z1 MCR 2001 is (on my digital scale with cut steerer but with cup/starnut) 1987 grams, a SID is around 1400-1450, so the difference is about 1.2 pounds or somewhat more.

    or check out http://weightweenies.starbike.com/li...uspensionforks

    If the difference is a bit larger it simply means that Sub-22 is easily achievable even with disk-brakes. By the way learn to check facts before posting a reply

    Might I suggest that the above gets in the brochure and website descriptions. It just might save us all a lot of fuss later on . (Also thinking of the JRA Threads)

    We all know there are going to be some people who will want to make this a 22lb aggressive Trail bike...

    It looks like there will be some late night redesigning sessions at few other mfgr's this fall, this may be the new high bar for XC race.

    Yeah, sucks. Looked like it would have been a winner, and I love mine, but the market will determine what wins. Heck, the market likes bearings, thanks to Intense, which I think used bearings because they couldn't align a frame to save their lives.

    The Nitrous looks great. It looks very dialed for the intended usage. I'm surprised that at 215lbs Greg likes it, I guess that's a testament to good design. But, I will admit, I'm 210lbs, and I like throwing a leg over my Stinger every once in a while. Good call on the price too, given it's a race frame and very well engineered, it makes sense that it should be worth more than the 5-Spot, particularly given it's target audience. ...gotta make hay while the sun shines...

    Question for Turner. At 210lbs, I don't do jumps with my Stinger, but ride singletrack with lots of babyhead size rocks, but that's about it. I would probably avoid riding it on the rougher trails, only for the odd race. Think it will be OK? (it's long since out of warrantee so I won't come crying if it does break)

    I don't think Tony Ellsworth, Sherwood Gibson or Chris Cocalis are going to sleep very well tonight.

    What did the engineers estimate the % of stiffness lost versus the Burner/XCE rear end?

    Now that is what I call a full suspension XC race bike. DT raises the bar on the Truth, Racer X, El Salty and most other bikes out there. Still makes me wonder why no Stinger, wasn't it a light 3" racer? And the ano finish, nice. Very nice.

    BTW, need any Alaskan test riders?

    New question here. V-brake bosses??

    Second that.

    PS: it would be so sweet if you could keep the weight down for production and put a 175lbs rider limit on it. Everything on the market is way overbuilt for 150lbs racers.

    Then it's a good thing I don't race b/c I'd have to cut off a leg to get down to 150lbs
    (and before you say it ..."what? Just one leg?")

    Cheers Gears and Beers!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    No Stinger cuz no custom Stinger shock. Fox is a big company and acts like it. ...yeah, you can have a custom shock...if you buy 20,000 of them... And the Noleen is junk.

    Hey, looking at that frame up close, got a question. I'm sure you guys have considered this before, but have you thought about running the rear der cable through the seatstay? If you drill a hole big enough for your disk/std cable adaptors the holes would probably be big enough to make threading the cable easier. Would make for a nice, clean, racy look. And you wouldn't have to weld bosses on.

    I think that's the Noleen (air and coil versions) you're referring to. I've ridden them and wasn't impressed. Not sure if it was the shock or the K2 design, didn't ride nearly as well as the Stinger.

    Over $2k?!?!

    Finally, a light Turner with different Ano color! Great work. Just a little feedback: beware the $2k mental barrier. I know that I am not alone in having a mental block spending over $2000 for a frame. There are no stocking Turner dealers in NorCal so I ended up buying my spot without a test ride; I dont think I would have gone for it at over $2k, the great reviews and cult following here aside...

    PS Before killing the Burner, you should try selling it with the Romic or Paul 4in rockers. I bet you'd sell a ton of these once you get over that mental "4 in travel" barrier...

    My 0.02. We're all pulling for you to kick some a$$.
