    Neither Rain Nor Snow Nor Gloom of Night...

    ...will keep our beloved Brown Santa from his appointed rounds.

    I planned a day off today, figured I'd get plenty of little things done, maybe even a ride...snow changed all that.
    The good news is it didn't slow down UPS one bit .


    Build plans later...much later.

    And now a Poseur-Snob declaration: If you only have one Turner, You're off the back!

    Nice, but GREY?? The anti-bling chroma? The definition of lack of hue? I gotta see what you hang on there to redeem (distinguish) youself!!

    Zilla,

    Welcome to the Poseur-Snob 2 Turner clique. Now just think about how nice it would be to have a lightweight trailbike...

    Sweeeeeeeeet!!!!!!!! Very anti-bling, gonna have to spice it up with some purple ano or something like that. The donut bin is a nice touch, you can stock up for the snowy days.

    I feel so poseur-inferior now with only one Turner...

    Very nice. What size spring, 700#?

    I just noticed the donut photochop, clever.

    I'm having too much fun reading the backflow... I love you guys too!

    Not RED??? bu-bu-but the guy swore Grey was the new Red...goodness what will I do?

    The "Off the Back" statement was aimed squarely at Rene and SS . SS...your wife's bike only counts if you ride wearing one of Aqua's skirts. Speaking of Aqua and skirts...If you look at the seat tube you'll clearly see the special "Aquabooty-gusset" . I got a big grin when I saw that.

    dstix & 2TNE called it. Almost all of the HD stuff xfers over from the Spot and then it goes XC. I will be mounting up that spanky old-school rainbow headbage Rando hooked me up with. Thanks man, this is just what I've been saving it for! The Z1AM will be going up on the classifides.

    The DHX spring is 800# (as the Fox flies ) Homer don't play.

    I love the Doughnut box. I need a Big arsed Krispy Creme sticker on one and a Brooklyn Brewery sticker on the other.

    You can tell the wifes bike was built for me (secretly). Would any sane guy buy Hope mono mini and a sweet adjustable fork for a woman who doesn't care to ride that much???

    I guess if I have to ride it in a skirt ...so be it.

    Baby Blue is the new Pink ya know.

    That requires the skills of a Tscheezy I'm afraid.... my Roxio Photosuite won't do trim, cut 'n pastes - (note to self - get Photoshop). Rode the new 5 Spot this morning early on frozen deathcrust and ice balls - it was awesome!

    Here's how I did it Wreck -
    Buy your first Turner (for me it was MTBikerX's O2) - restore it - ride it -
    Buy a Burner frame - sell the O2
    Take the proceeds - buy a Gunnar HT frame - restore it - build it - ride it once - sell it
    Take the proceeds - buy a Spot Brand SS - build it - ride it - sell it
    Take the proceeds - buy an Azonic Saber frame - restore it -build it - ride it twice - sell it -
    Take the proceeds - buy a well loved 5 Spot frame - restore it - build it - ride it - KEEP IT
    It only took me 2 years - technically the Spot is all profit, if you don't count all the tool$$ I had to acquire.

    Well, turns out my SO is a master at such things, she knows how to turn stuff and therefore is allowed to have multiple bikes, although she did take a bit of a beating on her Burner. Myself, I go with the trash it until its worthless route .

    Back on topic....

    -Fork? Yep.
    -Keeping the spot? Yep. the Spot will get all the light stuff I swapped out.
    -More Pix? Hmmm... I gotta get creative...

    Crash, since I still have the Spot I'm still down with BGA...I gotta have some red in my life.
    Speakin of which, are you guys SURE grey isn't the new red?

    WTF is an "Aquabooty Gusset"? How's does this differentiate from a conventional taco?

    Heh, tnx for the clarification Ts.

    Okay I've had my fun. You fellas know me well enough to know as beautiful as the grey finish is, it's not me. I picked grey as a saftey JIC I got too stoked to wait for a round trip to crayola. I already had my next color picked out...then it got all popular so I have to think a bit.

    BTW I isn't the taco is technically a brace?
