    what is this then?

    From the Turner website:

    -The 2010 Sea Otter Classic is just around the corner. Turner Bikes is in the middle of getting everything in order to insure a great trip.

    We are planning on unveiling something that may be quite unexpected, something with a lot less travel and under the right legs very fast. . . Although not for everyone, this bike is pushing the limits of its bike class in only the way that David Turner could imagine. Stop by our booth at the Sea Otter and get Davids take on why this bike is the bike for 2010!

    So if there was a question about whether or not to go to Sea Weasel, this post answered it.

    Anyone else going?

    A 4X would be sweet. I saw one on ebay a few years ago and still kick myself for not buying it. A Turner 4X, a shred-gnar, extra burly 2010 RFX (please Dave please) and a DHR would be the best quiver EVAR!

    Word on the street around here is it will be a DW nitrous want-a-be with the possibility of bigger than normal wheels. Should be interesting to see the photos.

    Me too- I literally dreamt about it the night before I saw this post! It was quite elegent in my dream, so I expect nothing less from the finished product.

    That's not very nice of David to keep you in suspense btw.

    So Dave is gonna make a spitfire knock-off? Cool!

    Edit: Just got off the phone with DT. The rumor is confirmed. The new turner looks just like this, with a different paint scheme:

    That would be the BEST birthday present EVER if Dave gave me one of those. It'd do nicely next to the Highline and 5 Spot.

    Pretty please...

    It's an aluminum CX bike.

    I saw it this morning and didn't think to take a pic. I'll go back tomorrow, in between trips to the podium...

    Give us that DWL short-travel 29er at last. Hell with the 650B and everything else, at least for a while.

    Winner! I took a couple of pics today. I'll try and post up pics tonight (the Internet connection at the hotel sucks).

    ...so Dave's excuse for not making a hardtail is changing.
    Didn't he say that "Turner Suspension Bicycles" would not make a unsuspended frame.
    This one doesn't have enough rubber to add any cushion at all.

    Wish I snatched up one of those hardtails in the past. Now I'm piecing together, in a lazy fashion, the parts to make a SS HT, possibly a rigid fork.

    The Cyclosys is kind of interesting, as it would make for a really interesting urban commuter for those of us in cities with horrific road surfaces. Maybe.

    Two questions spring to mind:

    When can i get one? What will it cost me?

    Being a belgian (yes we do CX very well thank you) I want something I can ride on the road and offroad in wintertime.

    I've been looking at a yeti cx for a while but this one just hits my special spot!

    I don't see a tab for a front derailleur?! Do you have to run it 1x10?

    I was watching the World CX championship and it was a Belgian sweep so I see the interest. Great course too. I didn't find it very interesting till I started watching the races last year. This doesn't mean I don't want my short travel 29er though. The Titus needs to be replaced.

    Dave likes to ride/race cross so he made one. We would all do the same if we could. btw cross is pretty flippin fun I might have to sell my old La Cruz and get a Turner.
