The Turners are in...

Have you ever seen anything so pretty! OK maybe, but these bikes are works of art...

The Turner Flux's are in and built and have seen some action. I have been like a kid in a candy store up in the mountains lately. With Cascade Cream Puff approaching I can't seem to get in enough training rides on the new ride. We spent all weekend in the saddles of our bikes, assaulting Tiger Mt. and all the trails in the immediate vicinity.

Word of the day from JVG was buttery ! These bikes are silky smooth and the FSA components and wheels only make the experience better. Not to mention the Manitou R7 front fork. Hope to see you on the trails some time soon.

Breaking inthe new bike at tiger means getting down and dirty...

Funny you ask, I never got the official weight, but it is definitely lighter than the prior version. After it was built with Carbon everything FSA on it and no extras I almost pooped my pants at the lack of weight, but after some bottle cages, replacing the uncomfortable carbon saddle with sopmething a little more forgiving, and adding a bag with some survival gear under the seat I inched my way up towards 26-27 lbs. I would guess. I am going to weigh it soon!
