The Turner frames have arrived!

This year, my team, DART-nuun is sponsored by Turner Bikes. I couldn’t be more excited about this. Turner is known for their attention to detail and their precision performance suspensions. As a team we’ll ride either the Nitrous or the Flux. Since I also race in solo endurance mountain bike events where having two bikes is essential, I got one of each!

The Nitrous is their super aggressive, top notch cross country racing frame. It’s got 3.1” of rear travel…. and it’s just 4.5 lbs!!! Geoff Kabush, who if you don’t know is many time NORBA National Champion in XC and short track mountain biking (not to mention cyclocross champ) races this rig. If it’s good enough for Kabush.. I’ll ride it.

The Flux is Turner’s endurance racing bike. It’s weighs in at 5.6 lbs and has 4” of travel (Fox RP3 Shock) with a more relaxed geometry for longer distance riding. Of the two I bet I ride this bike more often because it will be more comfy, less aggressive geometry. Oh and it’s this insane shiny chrome! Check it out.

Waiting on parts from our bike component sponsor Full Speed Ahead before I can put them together.. boohoo.
