    I love the look of those crank bro wheels, but everytime I see them I just can't help thinking I would brake them.
    It's not a ornament, so ride It
  • ceecee Posts: 4,553 seems to have fancypants everything, but somehow it is not doing it for me....the swingarm looks like it is from a different bike,.

    Swingarm design is a Dweagle - rather than the faux bar before it, FSR before that.
  • love the colour of the wheels but not sure about the design

    i reckon thats about as good looking as a bike gets. couldnt they do one in a suitable size for doddy? he must need stilts to reach the pedals!!

    Not a fan of Turner, feels like one of those bikes we pay double the price for and treat as exclusive, solely because it's made in America and costs a fortune to import. Besides, if I were in the mood of for paying overblown US prices I'd buy a Blur ;)

    Interesting bike choice for a long termer though.

    Agree with cee, the swingarm does look out of place...

    swing arm spoils it for me too

    My guide in Morzine this year had an old Turner and he used it for all sorts of riding and swore by the make

    Swing arm does indeed look strange.

    Looking at the full pictures who built it? Have they never heard of cutting cable ties flush, those things will rip through flesh like no-bodies business.
