My local bike shop has a few new Spots and Sultans in stock now.
Agree, My local shop has a few new Spots and Sultans . . . sorry to hear the OP has to wait, that is a bummer.

FWIW, a Feb/March realease on an '07 model is not unheard of . . . Specialized has only just released the '07 Enduro in limited numbers, as an example. Turner is doing their best to get frames to the dealers as quickly as they can. This is not the car biz, after all.

Some shops have them in stock, but orders aren't getting filled? They have them in stock, but the release date isn't until April? is that like a showcase thing or demo?

huh, what uhhh good morning, no you didn't wake me

No not quite asleep. In a line up of 7 frames, the Spot is heavily revised, the Sultan is all new, the RFX almost all new, the Highline gets an all new chainstay and with the XL being added the other 3 sizes were redrawn, and the DHR is completely new. A fool? yes, but not asleep.

Sorry to keep ya'll waiting but I promise you that we are more bummed.

So, where are these shops that have 2007 Spots hanging on the rack?

There are no 2007 production frames on the market.
Thanks DT. That was what I suspected. I figured my local guy, who placed my order with you in January, has no reason to tell me anything other than what to expect and that is frames in April.

I do not understand...I saw 2 Sultans and 2 new Spots at the LBS. Are these frames pre-2007 models?
I don't know where LBS is, but I would think Turner would know what they have shipped and to whom. Is the Sultan a new model for this year? I don't think so but I might be wrong, not into the 29er's at this point. These must be last years models, don't you think?

Sure about that

I was at the Path Bike shop in Tustin, CA and they had 2 maybe 3 Turner Sultans on the showroom floor. The two I saw were powder coat black, one being a frame and the other built up. Sultans are definately 2007 models.

I would think DT would know what has been shipped but the Sultan is a 2007 model and the tags the dealer had on the frames said 2007 Spots and 2007 Sultans and they had the new headtube badges.

I am happy with my old 2006 5 Spot. :thumbsup:

They will be probably unused demo stock.
Go get them :thumbsup:

It would appear that I stand corrected . . but then most of you know by now I only post worthless info anyway :D :D

So the Spots I saw were 2006 models, but the med Sultan I saw at Sunshine was def 2007, right, DT? Martin said he had a L Sultan coming in this week or next. Since the original post was about the Spot, I assume this is what you are referring to.

Now if you will excuse me, I have to go find out where CC got his avatar . . . . .:madman:

As president of the Uninformed Contributors Club, I'd like to formally extend an invitation to you to join. It's all the rage amongst the Homers. And remember, I'm not just the Uninformed Contributor Club President, I'm also a client.

BTW, what's with these shop's passing off '06 Spots as '07s? Kinda shady, no? Maybe the Sultans on display were demos from Interbike?
