    Turner frame is letting down

    I have been riding it a ton in the last five years. I have ridden it in rain, mud, sun, slickrock, rock, and road. It has had three forks, three cranks, five cassettes, and a dozen chains. And what does it give me? Five lousy years of services before my pivots are starting to show some slop in them. Sheesh! I thought Turners were supposed to last forever....

    Good job! This whole board has become a snooze

    How much can you say about a bike company? Not much except to watch the homers try and be witty

    Can someone tell me what fork to run on my Spot? Oh, and what all-mountain shock pump should I be using?


    All a matter of perspective. Go hang out on the 29er board for a while and get back to us.

    Hopefully Turner lives up to the CS hype and shows up at your doorstep on Monday ready to make things right. Maybe they could bring some home grown tomatoes too -- darn hard to get a good tomato these days.

    ...what I don't get is why no one around here can spell 'church' correctly...???

    ...the only reason TA incessantly writes "chur" is because of the damage from all those drugs he's on...and way too much isolation...
    Isn't that the sound someone makes just before they vomit..??




    btw - saw my first rattler of the season yesterday, a green Mojave. Missed riding over his head by about 3 inches... He just turned around and went back into the bushes...

    Ooohhhhh...Mojaves. Nasty and aggressive bastards. I have seen only one Mojave this year, it was early, he was pretty sedated. A few years ago, AZMC was leading the ride and a Mojave was just off to the left on a bit of a hill. This thing came flying down, and literally chased us. Later, he crawled up into a tree, coiled, rattled, and hissed at us as we passed on the way back down.

    Agreed, only five (5) years without service in harsh conditions; what a rip off. Roller bearings would have lasted years.
