    An interesting Turner IN DA HOUSE!

    I just bought this less than 24 hours ago from a seller in Nevada... and to my surprise it was sitting on my doorstep when I went outside! <img src="https://www.fooriders.com/webmain/modules/PNphpBB2/images/smiles/evil6.gif">

    What an incredibly gorgeous frame. Nice job on this little creation, Turner Bikes! I can't hardly wait to get started on building it up.

    Nice!

    So when do we get to see a pic of your bike collection. I heard it is quite extensive.

    You'd better slap some green ICT stickers on that bad boy before the patent Nazis get a look at that frame.

    Beautiful otherwise. How are you going to build it up?
    I stopped driving my bike into my garage - I'm now protected with Roof Rack Ranger app for my iPhone.

    Orange

    That is what Olympic refers to as Safety Orange, straight single coat orange. I almost salivate looking at it. The orange option we offer is different, with a sparkle gold top coat.


    Hey Termy, can I borrow it for a photo shoot next week before you build it? pleeeeeeese.

    ah, so... thanks! I've been away from the 'scene' for a few years, and a lot has changed!
    So it looks like a fairly stout, low-slung, short-travel frame (?), thus, a suspended bmx bike.
    cool....

    Thats going to be a hell of a trail riding bike. It would go sweet in tricky terrain me thinks. You could have some fun thats for sure. Take it down the park or hit the trails.

    Fun!

    That thing is HAWT! Let me guess... is a Lefty going on it? Just a wild stab in the dark.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Had to run up to LA and just got back in town... Anyways - I don't really need to build it up right away as I think I've got a spare bike that I can ride in the meantime. I'd be happy to oblige.

    How do you want to handle the transfer? We could meet up somewhere or I could just UPS it on over. I'll email you guys my cell phone number. Get in touch with me and we'll work it out.

    Nothing gets past you! I've got a nice Lefty Ti DLR that will work perfect on there. I think the frame and fork together will weigh the same as my RFX frameset! <a href="https://files.fooriders.com/archives/leftydrop.jpg">Here's a shot</a> of the same type of Lefty in action. As a matter of fact, this Turner will probably replace the role of my Duo.

    Some day when my little daughter and soon-to-be son are a little older I'm going to have to setup a small bike museum that everyone can visit. I've got a lot of eclectic stuff that basically are my interpretation of "dream builds".

    I've got some of the bike photos up on my site, but there are a lot that are missing due to my lack of motivation to get the photos uploaded/organized.

    Exactly! Tricky terrain is what I had in mind... and we've got a lot of that around these parts. I tend to prefer shorter travel (and lower BB) for most of my riding, and that's why you only ever see my RFX in 5 inch mode.

    Here is the other proto frame that came from Team Maxxis Turner. It is mine, all mine!!!!! My precious.... Mine is a medium, I understand yours is the long model?

    All fun aside, get a King Steelset in the frame, that is what I have in it, and what Turner highly recommended for it.

    Get that puppy built up! When will Dave let you have that back?

    Have fun with it!
