    New question here. What is the punishment for...

    holding out on the Homer Clan when you get a new (or new to you) Turner?

    The OFFICIAL "Whatcha runnin' your 66SL at?" thread



    Nothing to see here.

    Are you trying to get someone in trouble?

    PS. With all the recent ultra pimp builds, posting your regular old boring but well peforming Turner just isn't the same.

    The punishment should be similar to that given to folks who buy a brand new frame, post about it here, never show us pics, and take forever and a day to build it up.

    I got to see the beast in person. I think that's _MK's plan - to show everyone his bike without the benefit of the internet at all. Sure it's slower, but pics just don't do it justice...

    It's gonna be weeks before MK gets to see his old Spot again...

    Maybe Bollox can post a pic of my old Burner. It's a circle of life here...

    There is no doubt that the RFX is a BEAST. I've already cleared some lines I wouldn't ever try on the Spot. The thing mauls. Part of it sure is the whole new bike stoke. Nevertheless it is a big, beautiful hunk of metal and the welds are like I haven't seen on a Turner, yet. Absolutely gorgeous and the high gloss black, yum, yum! Standing next to the Pack it just commands respect, completely outclasses it.

    And yea, DLine, you might be on to something with the in person only audience with the RFX!

    Sure enough, had a spring fling with a 6P but it didn't work out very well at all, after one date I went back to my honey and begged forgiveness. Bought 'er a dual air Pike to make things right. Now summer's knocking on the door and I really hit it off with a little older girl. She fits me like a glove and is taking me places I haven't yet explored. Although the foreplay takes longer and is more strenuous.

    Sloppy seconds on _MK's Spot. She's well ridden, but has some good miles left I think. She's out of commission until she gets a little plastic surgery, though.

    She's been treated like a queen after every ride. She's been done good. And she paid back on trail with flawless performance. I would expect her to treat her new man just as well, especially after he gets her a little face lift and a little makeup job.

    Definatelly does the man-muscle a lot of good. And the fat 66 is just icing on the cake. Not bad, though, as it stands it is 34.59lbs, but it will have to start wearing some thicker rubber.

    Well I'm happy for you and your new wife D-line. I just hope you all got a proper divorce before doing all this swapping business.

    I'm a little worried that the first time I see a pic on the internet of my old girl under some other guy, it's gonna break my heart. Much less if she's photographed on a cheap couch, or worse, in someone's basement or garage.

    Hopefully, the first time I see her on her own will be while she's outside, in nature, tastefully shot. I don't even have my new squeeze here to comfort me if I get thrown into a jealous rage - only my college sweetheart who's let herself go from outright neglect over the years. Her ass is still as hard as a rock, though.

    OK, I'll stop now.

    Fat chance; I don't think there's a krispy creme donut shop in the people's rebublic of Boulder. If you want to punish _MK, hit him where it hurts. NO BEER for 30 days.

    I've got blackmail material: _MK, I've got that dark, basement photo of your bike leaning againts a workbench that you e-mailed me. Don't make me post it!

    'Zilla, what made you think I was refering to you in my post above?

    Nothing to fear DLine. I'll post a picture of your old steed frothing at the mouth, chomping at the bit and generally sweaty all over, after my race on Sunday. No couch/garage shots here!

    I ain't holding out no more

    Joined a great group ride on Saturday, dubbed the Lyons Fat Tire Festival, followed by a keg of one of the best local brews, a little grilling and hanging out with fellow mtb'ers. Great time, great ride. I just saw some photos posted over at the Front Range board (Lyons Fat Tire Fest VI this weekend) and they sure make the RFX look good!

    Firstly, congrats, MK!!

    I just couldn't resist it... what do those dudes say about their Bionicon? Do they use them to their (the bikes') max?

    Just curious. I have read quite some about Bionicons, but never a real world review.
    Thanks

    Thanks, man. The dudes on Bionicons were pretty Biased. One guy was the "inventor", the other was Chad from Red Barn, at least that's who I think he was and the third was demoing. The demo guy would be the most unbiased, and he seemed to like it. The other two were good riders and there were fast, so there's gotta be something good going for those bikes. I just tooled around on one after having a few brews and I found the travel bias switch to be pretty cool. The suspension itself wasn't particularly special, air sprung, air dampened. It is made by Suntour. I found it peculiar that the bike has a double clamp fork with a QR axle. But anyhow, I am not fit to comment as I haven't ridden one on trail.

    Good thread and nice pics. I just wanted to reply to the Bionicon Info.

    The guy pictured on the Bionicon is Mic, one of the American "Investors" and yes it would also have been Chad from Red Barn who is a Bionicon Dealer, so the Biased opinion is definately understandable. Also they have been riding them as long as anyone in the US but myself and you definately do get hooked on the adjustability.

    I would like to offer MK a demo ride and anyone else in the Denver area for that matter, just reply to the thread or send me a message and I will hook it up. No need to wonder about something new when you can try it.

    The Dual Crown with the QR? There is less flex in a dual-crown fork than a single-crown resulting in less stress on the QR, allowing you to get away with alot more than you might think. But the reason we did it was to build a user friendly light-weight (5lbs w/HB & Stem) long travel fork. Also in order for the Air to have the proper spring rate a large chamber is required, thus we used dual crowns w/36mm stanchions for the necessary volume. Our Special Agent fork is 200mm travel inverted DH fork with 35mm fixed thru-axle and 40mm stanchions, you will see it this summer.

    Suntour, does our Magnesium Casting and uses our designs on the Condor fork, which has a standard Steerer and a different cartridge. The Bionicon headset/steerer system and Air Cartridge are all our own.


    Be Well, Ride Hard
