Turner Suspension Bicycles Founder David Turner

Chris Lesser, with mountainbike.com, just did an interview with our very own David Turner. Here is a little snippet:

David Turner talks 2012 bikes, confesses to an obsession with ‘cross racing, officially puts a fork in the long-awaited RFX (for now), alludes to carbon fiber project bikes (“not next year”) and dishes some straight dope on “over-forking,” Boost Valve shocks and the collaboration process with Dave Weagle.

Just the other day, David received an email from Turner Rider Tom Wehe, who had only good things to say about his new 5.Spot. Here is what Tom had to say:

Hi Dave,

Just a line to say hi and Thanks. Just got back from a ~400 mile single-track R&D trip sampling some of the best rides in the area. Moab, Fruita, CB all on board a 5 Spot which I barely got together before the trip.

You out did yourself on this one! Of course I expected nothing but happiness once I would point a Turner downhill but what surprised me the most was how well it climbed. And as you know the areas I went to have some hefty climbs in them! So pedal efficiency is definitely a 10 as well as climbing. Seems like out of the 3 “XC” bikes I have used of yours this one fits the best being an XL. 100mm stem w/ rised bars – no problem = sweet! Seems like going to the tapered headset system and the size bike I was using climbing as well as descending felt extremely predictable. Getting all educated about what’s out there as far as headsets are concerned is quite interesting but the folks at Cane Creek gave me the lowdown – waiting on their angle headset now so I can play around a bit more. What might have contributed to the extreme happiness on my part is pairing the frame with the new White Bros Loop fork which seems to compliment the DW link as it reacts and feels the same way if you put the setting on max bleed as the rear. I know you are a Fox man but if you are interested I would love to get you in touch with the president of MRP since I believe you’ve got to try this set-up – let me know…

I’ll send you more feed-back as I am riding the 5 S.

Hope all is well.

Happy Trails!!!

Tom

 

Thank you for the great feedback Tom! We will be looking forward to hearing more about how much you love your Turner 5.Spot! As long as you keep the wheels on your Turner rolling, we promise to keep making the ride better.

2011 Turner Bikes Inter-Bike Booth

2011 Turner Bikes Inter-Bike Booth

Interbike was an amazing success for TURNER SUSPENSION BIKES. When we thought Interbike was dying, we were wrong.

With our existing quality and added features for 2012, the TURNER booth had a steady flow of dealers and distributors visiting to see all our models at Interbike.

At TURNER we stress the importance of every detail that matters in building, riding, and living mountain bikes.  These details are embodied in our 2012 designs from the tubing, commissioned new suspension, detailed new cables guides, thru-axles, larger headtube and new sublime anodized colors.

All of our improvements come from tireless R & D, more miles ridden and countless conversations with TURNER riders. We are excited about our 2012 product line and we are delighted to say the entire line of TURNER bikes was received positively at Interbike.

The importance and emphasis on every detail of TURNER SUSPENSION BIKES will give you a great riding experience.

We want to extend a big thanks to everyone who stopped by the TURNER booth to say hi!
