New addition to the DDawg Turner collection! Build components courtesy of the Brown Santa/Larry at Mtn High Cycles and the living donor VPFree
The requisite frame on furniture shot. The wife caught me bringing it indoors for the normal couch shot. "What are you doing?" "Ah, I had to get something" followed by the you're an idiot walking around the house with a bike frame and camera in your hand look.
My first head set install using the new "Consumer" version of the Park Tool head set press. It's nothing fancy, but it worked with well with some serious elbow grease and saved me the ridiculous $35 service fee at the bike shop. I still paid $10 to have the crown race removed off the 888. Grrr, never again for that one!
Race Face has the weight weenie in you covered. The Deus seatpost. I wanted something with a setback, but yet retained the ability to be lowered all the way. The Highline has no problem taking all 410mm . Plus the double dog bone design matches the Highline.
44lbs of goodness! Now all she's waiting for is my all blue Industry 9 wheelset with the new Mavic 823's to arrive
This cable routing not so bad-kinda clean in fact. I had to reroute the rear brake hose on the right side of the head tube because it would have been too short otherwise. I actually like the way it looks though
Silver Turner Twins Activate!
Vintage 2003 Silver 5-spot (L) with a 2005 front triangle. Remember when these came with Romics and JensonUSA and Supergo sold them? Seems like ancient history now.
2006 Highline (L)
Funny how a thorough cleaning of the old combined with the building of the new reminds you of past rides and what components work well and those that just plain suck. With the exception of the Hadley hub on the Highline and my experiment with a RF post, everything else just works great as built. Makes it kinda boring picking out components now. And whatever happened to the price of disc brakes! I'm glad I bought mine before they practically doubled in price!
