    New releases from Turner in 2013/14? Let the speculation begin

    What do you think Dave will come up with?

    Will the Sultan get a new design similar to the Flux?
    I have seen somewhere that he will release more carbon frames. What will the next carbon frame be? I am putting my money on a 29er trail carbon with 120-130 mm of travel. This seems to be the most popular one bike quiver for the moment and I would gladly put my money here.
    When will we see the releases? Interbike or Sea Otter next year or another time?

    Anyone have some Turner gossip :-)

    My choice would be to give the Sultan the Czar treatment.

    Any guesses as to the weight loss of 29er trail carbon Turner with 120-130 mm of travel vs the current Sultan? Maybe -450 grams?

    130mm AM 29er. Something like the Banshee Prime. Carbon would be sweet too.

    "More" carbon frames? Like hes already making some now? He wrote in another thread that he's got no plans for a carbon Burner. Bummah big time! Carbon Burner would've brought me back too.

    Cool, so Turner does have carbon but in an XC racer.

    I'll say again, if the Burner were carbon AND had a true tapered head tube, to me that would be the ultimate ride. I still dont get why the odd 44mm headtube.

    my thoughts exactly; 3 of the 5 bikes in the lineup are new and people are expecting something else. I wouldn't hold my breath.

    So DT has stated

    1. He's has another Carbon bike in development
    2. He sees the advantage of Carbon for racers trying to get the highest performance not on trail bikes

    Therefore he's made a XC race bike...

    Now I wonder what other (R)ace bikes does he make...?

    The reason why I am asking is I have seen in an interview DT mentioning developing more than one carbon frame.
    The Sultan is a likely candidate to get an update similar to to the design which the Flux with weight saving and perhaps a new geometry.
    It has been quiet for some time before he released the three new bikes so I would not be suprised if we see something new within the next year.
    And I just really hope he releases a carbon trail 29er because that is where I would put my money :-)

    I speculate that no one in this thread will guess the next new model.

    A Sultan in carbon with 17.4 inch stays would get my money for certain. Hell, a Sultan with 17.4 stays in aluminum would get my money.

    Go ahead laugh, I would love to see Zero Spot. Titanium hard tail. With some some kind of cool artistic vibe. 29er flavor.

    You know, I was just thinking how badass a Turner hard tail would be.

    Zero Spot...I love it!

    I would not expect another Spot. Right now, the 26" market looks pretty dead. Might be different next year, but I doubt that Turner would spend money on a new 26" frame.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun
