    Roll Call! How many of you live in Western Washington?

    I'm looking to do some gatherings of Turner owners in Western Washington and was just curious as to how many of you live in this area?

    Spectre-----I ride a 27.5" Turner Flux (absolutely love it) and am in the area (south sound area). I used to have the 26" Flux till it got stolen and just upgraded to the new one as a replacement. Over the last few years, I've only seen 2 other Turners on the trails/at races. It's a shame because it's a GREAT brand! I get a lot of compliments on the bike though and the other riders know how strong of a reputation Turners have. I think it's wonderful Dirt Merchant Bikes has brought the Turner brand to the Seattle area. With the way enduro is growing around here, the Burner would be a killer choice for those events and the local trails. I'd swing by on your Duthie Demo Day to say "hi", but I'm heading out of town this week.

    Great to hear that. I'm excited to be partnered with Turner as well! There's a lot of hype out there now about mountain bikes and "new" technology. Some of it works, but a lot of it doesn't translate to real performance on the trail. Turners ride great and I feel that the best way to show that is to offer demo bikes.

    Turner Sultan and Burner owner here in Seattle. Love the bikes, sometimes the creaky pivots are hard to diagnose/fix but it's a forever bike! The latest creak is from the type 2 SRAM XX1 RD!
