    Turner 4x Frames? How many do we build??

    Hi All

    Looking for a tally of people interested in a 07 Turner 4x Frame for the aftermarket. I need a general number to persuade the powers that be to build it.. "If you build it, they will come."

    A simple "Hell Ya" will be sufficient.

    Thanks

    Jarett

    I think there is more interest in the size XL Highlines! There are 3 of us here on So. Utah that want one!

    For those of us uninformed types (me), could you give us a description of the 4x frame, it's intended usage, and how it compares to other Turner bikes?

    *I've heard of 4x bikes, but don't know what they are, really.
    And please don't say that if ya have to explain it, then I wouldn't get it anyways...

    Something like this. 5 spot rear, rfx head tube, 5 spot main tubes, special linkages and flux BB with chain guide tabs. 4 inchs of sweet travel. This is the old horst link model used my team maxxis

    4x

    xj

    4x is a type of racing, almost like downhill BMX but with a mountain bike. The Turner 4x frame is a short travel frame with compact geometry. Due to a BMX gate style start, most racers build them to be fairly light weight and nimble. If you've never watched 4x racing it very exciting and spectator friendly. I will attach a pic of our 4x Pro-Frame from previous year. This may not be exactly what is built so don't ask for exacts, just trying to get a word on demand.

    Thanks

    J

    Oww.... and by the way, i would love to own one but don't have the money this/next year to get one, which sucks. But i reckon it would make an excellent allround nice bike, 4x, jumps, bit of trail riding on the side.

    Thanks! Well, first off they're orange, which I really like!

    Kinda sounds like a Flux w/ a stronger headtube to handle more abuse??

    I've been out of the bike racing scene for too many years,,,I'll have to keep my eyes open now that I'm riding again...

    If I had the scratch I'd be all over one.... It wouldn't hurt to make an extra one though!

    yeppers dave. these also tend to have a super short chainstay for instant acceleration, much like a 24" bmx racin cruiser. it also allows for a light front end so ya can float (manual) it over yumps and such. if ya can, watch some videos of this stuff. its a total hoot and youll see how they ride the back tire a ton of the time. this is the type of racin i thought id really wanna do but never developed the air skills for. these bikes spend alot of time up there whenever theyre not wearin out the back tire.

    Its great to have the opportunity to get one of these. We dont have any 4x races but it would be great to have a low slung flyer for the ripping smooth & groomed trail days.

    I have to many bikes, cant get one, but i'll see who else will...

    I don't have funds or an empty spot in the stable for one this next year but please make them anyways so I can hopefully buy a used one in the future.

    Any idea on target weight for the frame?

    Jarrett:

    I say mass produce those puppies. You will steal sales from Santa Cruz and other bike co's that make 4x bikes. This goes beyond the homers. Push the brand! ............ Oh, I guess you can probably tell that I want to buy a used one in the future as well - no dough right now.

    Screw all that bring, back the RAIL it was one of the best high performance bike made,there was not enough marketing and by the time everyone knew about it it was gone. What a shame

    I have a better idea!

    How about just send me half of the money it would cost to build them and then when I visit i can take you guys out back and kick you in the nuts. In the end it will cost and hurt less!!!!

    Take that money and build bikes that sell.......................................

    I will put down some money if you can garantee me that you will build them. In my opinion, this would be one of the all time greatest SUPER-D race bikes ever. Slack and DH orientated, short travel, full seatpost.
