    I'm guessing but it think is was something like 96-99 - this ones been repainted by Turner. 6" travel frame, pretty similar to the RFX, but no cable stops for a FD.

    Seatpost is a AC - American Classic.

    Very cool. It's good to see the "classics" come out for some play time. BTW, I see you know which brake lever is supposed to operate which brake. From previous experience, it usually is REALLY nice to tell the person you've just switched bikes. Wow! Ugliness sure can occur quickly without that teensie bit of information...oops.

    That is very shweeeeet!!!!!
    It is interesting looking at the frame and how Turner, over the years just tweaked (sp?) a great design.
    That is why I stick to riding...............
    Very Nice Bike

    Question
    As for putting her in a Group of some sort I don't see her as the "Older Lady" but more like a "Cougar")

    I kinda like the sound of Cougar (s) ...............

    (Ever been in a Cougar Bar?..........need I say more!!!!!!!)

    Well????

    What the hell is a Cougar bar?

    That bike looks like it glides about 30mph faster than I'd ever want to go!!!
    Mama warned me about fast women...that one's libel to break more than a guy's heart.
    Look at that chainstay, short, straight, no curve at the front pivot...
    Look at that HTA...
    Look those monster gussets...
    look, look, loooooooook uh, oh....gotta change now.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    The HTA is about 68-67 or so (guessing) - It looks a lot slacker in the photo because the camera is at a bit of an angle (don't know why - guess I just f'd up).

    In Australia all bikes come with the brakes set that way, so thats just how I learnt to ride.

    When I first came to America my wife had a bike on loan for a testing. I jumped on the bike for a quick go (knowing the brakes were reversed). But Muscle memory is hard to by-pass and I wanted to see how the bike did a 180 with the back brake locked up. Instant karma, and I mean instant. Then and there I learnt not to skid up the trails.


    BTW thanks everyone for the nice comments.

    Old Hottie

    Now that sends my heart a thumpin'. I loved that Afterburner design. Best I can recall from my aging memory is that is a '98-99. We only sold the 6" version from 97-99. Then in 2000 came the DHR. In '96 the Afterburner with the huge un drilled gussets would from the rear suspension be called a "Burner" today! How our taste have changed! The looks to be the same year as Jeremy Purdy's Kamikaze National winning bike. With that clean flat chainstay it looks so so nice.... No front mech can ever disrupt it's lines. Glad to see it.

    Hahahaha.

    Yes, I think she shall be know as the 'Cougar'..... now that I know what a Cougar bar is .....

    Never been to a Cougar bar though. Not really into the older ladies.... (my wife is still just in her twenties ) The Boom'n granny bit was a tribuite to the Beastie Boys song.

    But is there a story you'd like to share with us.......
