    Hmmm....

    Nice color and all... but I've gotta say I prefer <a href="http://www.singlespeed.net/main/forum.mv?forum=103&module=view&viewid=36&mode=all& row=48"><i>my</i> CX bike</a> which features a TNT pivot!!!

    Amazing action shots!

    And one hell of an original build - beautiful bike, Terminaut.

    Mine's a little less wild, but it gets an awful lot of use. 120km this last Sunday - F U N !

    Thanks... Nice build on your rig as well. I really like the looks of the panels.

    I used to put a lot of miles on mine, riding all the trails that I'd normally ride on my mountain bike. Lately it's been a little neglected as I've been enjoying my RFX too much.

    holy crap thats a nice machine! and those pics are right sick! im impressed as hell term.

    i bet the 700c wheels on the h/t are for pre race warm ups? all part of the marketing plan to be seen on a turner mtn bike at all times? can-o-ale did the same kinda thing back in 98 i think it was, even sold a bike with both sets of wheels/tires. ok. im done. thanx term.

    Are these bikes "One-offs" to accomodate the Maxxis team, or will they be available to the general public as well ?

    Are they made by Turner Bikes ?

    Crickey Terminaut!

    You've got some skills mate. I'd struggle to ride that lot on my flux! Looks like I need to go practice a bit, but it is a sweet build. Keep posting the great pictures - it's approaching winter over here in the UK and all our trails will soon be inches deep in mud and slime Its nice to dream of sunnier locations and dry singletrack!

    If they were availible and built by Turner AND had disc mounts I'd buy one right now. Gonna order me a Kona Sutra instead.

    Nice rig Deano, how does the fork handle the disc brake? I bought a Redline and put some discs on it and the front end seems to flex a bit under hard braking, I'm thinking about a carbon fork for it. My buddy has one on his cross and the bike seems to be more stable during braking.

    That Turner CX bike looks like it's a re-painted Redline.

    The XC pro guys ride around on the roads on those bikes, which are similar to their XC race rigs except they have road tires. It keeps the fit and feel of their race bikes, so they can just hop on them and rip.
    I would like to have one of those bikes instead of a road bike.

    Huh?

    I'm sure DT (who doesn't fabricate his own bikes) paid SAPA for a small run of hardtails and CX bikes, rather than purchasing existing frames and paying a couple hundred to repaint and sticker them. It's a fairly common practice in pro road and MTB racing. Masi and Pegoretti never built frames to be painted team colors for pro roadies .

    The truth will come out eventually and we'll find out what the real situation is.

    My money is on that frame being a major brand repaint. I'm sure it's just coincidence that it's using the same dropouts and cable stop mount locations as the Conquest Pro. It's probably also coincidental that this "Turner" has the same "cold worked" left fork blade to make clearance for disk rotors.

    With some orange Krylon and knowledge of a local vinyl sticker cutter, you too can have your very own team Turner CX bike with an MSRP of 1549.99.

    Ya mean the Huffy 7-11 team race bikes weren't made by...Huffy?

    EZ smudger...please observe the inserted in my reply. FWIW, any Masi built after the 70's California Masi does nothing for me anyway. I'm old school for roadie rides. In my eyes road bikes lose class with threadless stems and mix-n-match carbon forks slapped on the front of a frame, thus killing the old frameset concept with angles, wheelbase, etc just as the designer meant them to be.

    Sorry, I must have overlooked that I don't know why, but I tend to get bent out of shape sometimes when people idealize a company or person just based on a name. Sure it's good for the company, but I think that there are a lot of consumers who are misinformed and often make decisions based on what they want to believe rather than actual truth (which can often differ from an idealistic belief...I'm doing my best to steer clear of religious commentary here.)

    Anywho, I share your love for old school roadie rides...but I've kept it limited to "old school for me" which means roadies built in the early '90's. I apparently had a Waterford Schwinn (I didn't know it until after I sold it) and still ride a Bridgestone RB-1 from 1992 (although it wasn't originally mine.) More recently, I bought a Pegoretti, which isn't old school, but I was looking for a change. I have to admit, the appearance of the welds are fantastic, but I'll reserve judging the ride quality until it's built up.

    Sorry for getting all whacked out on you. I just felt that some people were in need of a bit of an education.

    Dude, I think your right! The details look the same, the fork is definitely the same. Cool!, I'm gonna have it painted orange and buy a sticker kit I haven't been real happy with the fork/disc brake combo but if it's good enough for Kabush then maybe I'll keep it.

    No worries. You don't have to apologize to me at all. This is a public forum - let you opinions be heard...besides, you have an old B-stone! I sold my yellow/white '92 RB-1 last summer after I got tired of seeing it collecting dust. A nice riding bike if not a little twitchy on tectured descents at speed. The Waterford Schwinns are supposed to be great rides. Not to take this too far off topic, but my current favorite roadie is a traffic splitting '82 Merckx fixee - brake-free and 38 c-c deep drops...it sure can makes the commute a rush at times!

    Holy crap Term. Clearly, you don't have a big enough collection of bikes yet. Truly, I'm always happy to see your pics, more so of the hot riding action as it's clear that you do actually ride those things, unlike a few collectors.

    What are your museum visiting hours?

    Heheh. You're not the first person to ask for a visit. I do enjoy building up nice bikes and riding the hell out of them. Since there are many different brands though, the best place to see recent ride photos are on my own site, either in <a href="http://www.fooriders.com/webmain/index.php?module=photoshare&func=viewallfolders">t he gallery</a> or <a href="http://www.fooriders.com/webmain/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewforum&f=7">the forums</a>.

    BTW, do these look like Hershey spiders?...

    Vicious fork

    There is a little brake-flutter, but really nothing much; my standard commute brings me down a hair-pinned, wooded 15% descent and the front brake works so well I can leave the braking really late and get some silly speed built up :^)

    Buy Vicious, they rock!

    werent those 7-11 frames some of the old hand built belgian ones by merckx? i believe so. slx tubes if i recall just like my 88 kelme team bike. might be easyer to tell if i could see the fork crown. bet term can quote us the history of that particular frameset.

    Fantastic track bike!

    That's a beaut Term', you clearly have an awesome arsenal! I imagine it's twitchy as hell if you were to ride it on the street, looks like an 85º h/a!

    If you want to Paypal me 5 bucks to cover Priority Mail shipping it's yours. It's just part of my "stash-o-stuff" and I'm not likely to ever use it. Email me at terminaut at singlespeed dot net.

    You're thinking of the later 7-11 frames which were actually Merckx built. The one I have is a bit earlier ('85) and built by Serotta. All of the 7-11 bikes were really nice and I wouldn't mind getting one of the Merckx team bikes (with the number-plate mount under the top tube). One of these days...

    It <i>is</i> very twitchy and also has a lot of toe overlap... but hopefully is going to be ideal when I take it to the nearby velodrome which features 45 degree banks.

    I also have <a href="http://www.fooriders.com/webmain/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=278986&t= 55881">a different track bike</a> with less aggressive geometry that I ride on the riverbed bike paths. That bike used to belong to someone on the USPS team...

    Nice detour

    This thread really got sidetracked in a cool way. That Huffy is a beauty.

    CX, is a Redline all the way. Why mess with a custom when we only need to supply Team Maxxis. My cost on those is less than I could have had SAPA build them, including the strip and re-paint.

    Hardtails. Those are custom made to match Geoff's Nitrous. The top of the head tube to BB and seat tube relationship are exactly the same on the HT and the Nitrous so that even with different bb height etc. his position on both bikes is identical. As someone pointed out, the pro's will put in many miles on the 700c mtb when traveling. Since only a couple people have ever called about the hard tails there is certainly no intent to produce any.

    David - I've finally found a sig line worthy of adding to my posts!

    BTW, hopefully Olympic has sent you guys my RFX front triangle by now... I'm really looking forward to getting it back in proper condition!

    Those bars are actually some unknown brand that pre-dates the On-Ones. I wish I knew their origin as I really like their flare (about half as much as the Dirt Drops).

    As for the wheels - I was under the impression that they're indestructable until your post. <img src="http://www.fooriders.com/webmain/modules/PNphpBB2/images/smiles/laughing7.gif"> They've seen lots of hard miles and I've yet to true them. The spokes <i>are</i> somewhat loose at this point and could use tensioning, though.

    Now, why are all Turner HT I've seen here orange? Is it something like Red for Ferrari?

    Its just team colors

    The hardtails are orange because all the Maxxis team bikes are orange. DT just makes them for Maxxis. (Or strips and repaints as the case is here ) I want one, always did like orange bikes for some reason.
