    Turner Goes Factory Direct and New Colorway or New Frame?

    Saw this come across on Facebook. Looks like Dave is going factory direct to customers in areas that aren't serviced by a dealer. I felt like this was always an option if you dropped them a line but now it's official.

    Is the the bike they're all standing around a new Burner colorway or something else? Looks like more than a 140mm fork but maybe not 160mm. No name on the top tube and those ENVE M70s typically are found on slightly bigger bikes unless you're Danny MacAskill. Definitely like the looks of it. Thoughts from the Homers?

    Read the news on bike rumor and came here to say: Thank you!

    I really feel that manufacturers going direct can help bring the costs of new bikes back to earth.

    Oh and that bike in the above photo is friggin awesome!

    Some of the bike colours these days makes white and pink look good. The bile green of the RM Altitude BC Edition makes me nauseous.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    Haven't they been selling bikes direct from the website for quite a while now?

    That's what I thought too?

    I actually like the look of that Burner, pink and blue certainly looks better than someone elses pink and green! (err, I mean magenta )


    No large Burners in stock on the website though, guess I'll keep waiting.....

    August of 2014 is when we changed the web site to web store with a more obvious 'cart'. Before that we sold a few direct to riders but it was thru email if the rider reached out and could not find a dealer.

    Thankfully there is a back space on this keyboard or you would have gotten the rest of the story! haha.

    Thanks for the support and have a good ride.
