Which saddle is that? Looks sort of like a Fizik.

The timing sucks, but what do you think it would cost to ship it to GA?

Pedals are a personal preference.

I can only imagine you would be considering a Turner 5.5 Spot as an upgrade?

I have a Burner and it rides amazingly ... softening up the rear shock to a little softer than you think it should be and it rides like a dream!!

Nooooo! A 29'er??? Don't give in. Is it at least going to be a SS HT? That's the only setup I would ride with 29" wheels.

Good deal on a very nice bike. Those frames new were close to $2k right?

If anyone is looking to get into mtn biking, this is a great deal on a US Made frame with a great ride and solid parts.

Barry - any idea what Turner is going to do with Sapa closing their frame production? http://bicycling.com/blogs/thestraig...ng-operations/

I'm sure you know but when I sold my Turner RFX years ago I advertised it on the mtbr Turner forum. Had a guy drive like 2 hours to get it.

Interesting article.

29 doesn't appeal to you? I would think it would be perfect in nj. I have friends who will now only ride it. I figured it was where everyone was going with this. I have an opportunity to get a sick deal on a rocky mountain and I was debating between a full suspension bike or a hardtail, both 29.

It looks fun.

Its more of a joke on the nj mtb site. Lots of the hammer heads on there have 29ers and are always trying to get others to drink the kool-aid. I can see for taller guys that want to ride fast how a 29er would be good but there would be 5' 2" girls asking and they'd say go bigger wheels. I would be thinking - could she even pull the front wheel over a curb? But looking at how your Turner is setup and riding a large I can see you enjoying one.

For me, I like to flick the bike around too much on jumps and log rides and stuff. And need as much clearance as possible. For me a good 26" full sussy bike with big knobbies works best. I'd be afraid of folding a 29er wheel. But, I might build a bigger wheel rig at some point and ride for speed and miles vs fun.

Yeah I'm not fast or anything. I have a friend in new Hampshire who is my go to guy on what to get. He isn't pushing anything on me but his primary bike is a 29 singlespeed. He is the type of guy who breaks frames. He loves the big wheels in new England. My turner is fun but riding in la in general blows. We are lacking trees. I have a singlespeed 26 with a carbon fork now and love it but I am far from fast at least going up. Figure with my height an going down the 29 will be great and easy to whip around.

Throw this on the classifieds section of Expedition Portal- there's a good following of "expedition bikers" there that might snatch this up. I'm very happy with my Spot Brand single speed 29er- the geometry is perfect. I'll throw a picture up here if you want to see it.

I would think in the New England that they would ride 26" bikes with more travel, tighter geometry and wider knobs but like off road trucks a bigger tire will roll over rocks much better. My buddies in Vermont ride the 26ers but there is a contigent up there that ride the bigger wheels - mostly like your buddy SS Hardtails.

I think the 29'ers are good for people that are taller and aren't riding stunts or jumps. I just shake my head when I see someone small riding one and the headtube is about 3" tall and the bike is all wheels. Definitely try it out - I think that is one of the best things about riding bikes - pretty easy and cheap to change things up and try different things. Who know I might even build a big wheel bike next year to see what all the hype is. You can't really talk shit if you haven't taken a dump before.

I've always liked Spot stuff - throw up a pic when you have a chance - would love to see it. Actually seems like some of us on here have some good bikes - should start a OT thread on it unless there is already one.

I have a custom 29r single speed/belt drive.. It feels like my cross bike. THe nice thing is you can run a lower BB compared to axle position so it feels very stable. I'm 5'11 and my bike has a 5 inch head tube.. It affects the stand over height quite a bit compared to my 26'rs. If I were to build another I would go with at least an inch shorter head tube and a much more sloping top tube.

5" HT? That's a bit tall but not out of this world. Are you using an integrated headest or cups? I'm sure messing around with spacers, stems and bars your h-bar height can be dialed but depending on the fork you are running can have a pretty tall front end. And what is your ST height? On my full sussy bike it's a super low ass 16.5" and I am 6ft tall. But I have around 32" inseam and like to have the a ton of clearance, especially when I need to bail like I did on a log ride last week

Curious - who was the builder?
