    still, it always brings a tear, such a grim sight.

    On the-up side, now it fits easily into most overhead carry-on luggage containers.

    Can we take guesses?

    I say drive through window...20mph.

    Whatever the cause, it's a bummer.

    My guess is the Wife didn't appreciate discovering the third Turner in the workshop after getting her new vacuum cleaner for Christmas.

    I got it backwards... I got the new Spot, and then she got the diamond ring. Guilt can be a b!tch sometimes Oh well, I'll be interested to test how much goodwill the diamonds bring when the rehabbed RFX rolls into the living room.

    I think that this is actually a picture of this guy trying to prove that the 1.5 headtube is a necessary evil, when in fact, it proved quite the opposite. Notice the headtube junction completely unscathed, and a noticeable lack of ovalization. I think he just proved that the 1.5 standard needs to be applied to down tubes and top tubes.

    That's actually the first prototype of the new collaboration between Turnerbikes and Bike Friday.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.
