    Will my new Turner frame need any prep work?

    Well that $949 Supergo deal was just too good to pass up, so I snapped up their last large blue Burner frame.

    So now it's time to do my homework as this is going to be my first build.

    Do Turners leave the factory with the BB and the head tube faced?
    What about the disc brake tab?

    It should be ready to go

    Just got my Burner frame a few weeks ago and everything was ready to go. The only thing is the disc mount is painted but is perfectly aligned....got my discs on with no rub at all.

    Mine needed the head tube faced but apparently that's pretty rare!

    Steve...Turner frames come about as well prepped as frames come. the headtube, and bottom bracket should already be faced . And as for the disc tabs...they should be about perfect, but if you have the means i would run a disc milling tool on it just to verify alignment/removal of paint.

    enjoy the new bike !

    Thanks for the answers guys!

    .....although all these nice pics of 5 spots are making me a little envious and I haven't even got my frame yet.
