    il Highline rossa

    Sto scheggiando lentamente via alla configurazione poiché non sto guidando ora (rehabbing il mio ginocchio e busy con some la traccia work).

    Il servizio di cliente del Turners è incredibile.

    Ciò è basicamente un affare di warrantee, una nuova estremità posteriore sul mio vecchio triangolo anteriore (ridipinto). La scossa è un prestatore 8.75"DHX da usare fino a che i roco non siano disponibili dal marzocchi. Sopra ed oltre le mie aspettative!

    Basicly what he is saying is that he cant get his 75 red chevy nova fixed under warrantee, so this is how he gets to work, right?

    Haha. It's (very bad) italian actually. I used babelfish- pretty funny when I translated it back to english, not even close to what I had written originally!

    The DHX is a loaner from turner (extremely cool of them!) to use until rocos are available again- apparently they are super hard to get right now. The DHX is a 8.75 model, so I have 8" in back and 7 in front. With a 2.5 front tire, my BB is over 15" so I am looking forward to getting a 8.5" shock again. The old roco was damaged.

    The king can't be bad with a 10 year guarantee.

    I may not ride this for a bit- I am re-habbing my knee, the local trails are in full winter mode, so most of my free time is going into helping build this urban free-ride/ skills park.

    The color is sangria red. Me likey!

    Oh man... you're gonna get splashed for that.

    My knee is messed up (patellar tendonitis) from:
    • The piledriver drop, hard landings twice (see below)
    • Running in the sand down at huntington beach on a work trip.
    • Hiking, slipping and falling repeatedly on some of the non-collonade trailwork days. (beer may have been a factor)


    The rX (bro-in-law) sez no hucking, daily ice/ ibu's and Gn....(I forget what it's called, but you know, the stuff thats good for joints and bones) for 4-6 weeks, then I should be good to go. So I can ride, just no hucking or big mileage.

    That red looks a ton better then the stock flat radio flyer red that was on the RFX at Dirt Demo. Is it custom?

    It's not a stock color for the highline, but I think it is a stock color on the 5-spot?

    It's sangria red, which I think is trans red over silver. It really looks different depending on which camera settings I tried- the flash really brings out the silver. I am going to cover the main tubes with a bunch of this stuff to keep it looking new. Winters here are brutal on paint.

    Nope, thats pretty much the deal. Turner covered everything (including the shock), and now I have a sweet new frame. Considering I am not the first owner of this bike? Thats absolutely exceptional customer service. I have broken frames before (other brands) and never gotten taken care of like this.

    I was getting stoked for a repaint anyways, it just happened sooner than I had planned.

    So yeah... Turner rocks. I can't really see considering any other brands after this experience.

    oh btw that xpel stuff can be used to protect all sorts of things. I guess all really shiny things need some blonde chick to stand by them and watch over them at all times. I expect your next pics of your new ride to include some babes.

    If by mustache you mean mullet, then I concur.

    I have had both a mullet and a mustache at various phases of my life.

    Now I just have hair in my teeth.

    You children disappoint me.

    A hasselstache is no mustache but rather a cheap facsimile.

    Let's get this straight, Kit (NGHTRIDER) didn't even have the fire-chicken on the hood. And hasselhof didn't have a mustache. So neither of them have any place in this thread!

    proof:
    • NO CHICKEN
    • NO MUSTACHE

    Thanks for the heads up on this thread, and good to see you/chat this a.m.

    We had fun at collonade...the highline sneered like a snob at all the already-built stuff. Good times though. Mrs Jubilee had fun on the BR, but said it felt a little big.

    Felt a bit guilty when we checked out the advanced lines while those guys worked....it's coming along nicely, and they were really friendly. I gotta get there at least once this week.

    Taking it easy for all you sinners.
