    Mega Turner Snowbike

    Finally getting around to posting pics of the biggest, fattest, Turner snow bike out there. A friend fabricated the rear triangle out of aircraft stock cro-moly and canibalized the old rear triangle to do it. The fork is from Wildfire and has been powder coated to look like aluminum. RTR fixed up the BB with a long Phil spindle glued in. At any rate, it is 37.2 pounds of fun as shown in the photos. Previously had a rigid snow bike but found it too hard on my back despite the cush of the tires. This was also posted on the AK Forum . . .

    Cool setup! Did you have to pay Tony E any ICT licensing fees?

    fees

    No, it was a no-net-gain operation (same number of Turner rear ends before as after).

    I don't have the fat wheels/tires but I have some 2.3 tubeless tires on the Burner and run them around 30psi for soft snow cond's, they work well, not like those though.

    Just messin, I believe the XCE/Burner(or is that an O2?)design does not fall under the ICT patent so no worries about TE's goons showing up to collect and place an ICT sticker on your bike

    well as someone who last saw snow 10 yrs ago when i was in the US all i can say is brrrrrrr. that looks cold! can you control your bike in snow that deep? or does it just slip and slide around?

    Head up to Flagstaff, I'm assuming your in AZ to get away from the snow though

    PSI- that was 3-6" new snow cond's so it was a little soft which makes climbing much more difficult and descending is like riding in mucky cond's where you kinda let the front end go where it wants to and just give a little "input" here and there, packed crunchy cond's have great traction though.

    Happy New Year BTW.

    I hate snow.

    Faster is better, even when it's not.
