Obviously with the steadily declining forum numbers around here DT needs to do something drastic. The DW Link was a bandaid. Just look at the 29er Board numbers - consistently in the high triple digits. That's where the future is people. To combat Turner's sad decline and to satisfy the persistent whining for a carbon 4" travel 29er platform or a long travel 29er AM platform DT just needs to suck it up and get ahead of the curve again. 26ers are now niche bikes. The small wheel format is on the way out. It's die hard adherents just don't want to admit it. If DT wants to keep his sales up he needs to COMMIT. Hence the TURNINER revolution. You can't have a revolution without evolution, and it's clear the MTB industry is headed for 29er land. DT can catch the wave or get left behind. He needs the 100mm travel FLEX, a Chinese carbon rocket for the racer boys. the 120mm SUNTAN for all the trail riders. The 140mm 9 SPOT for AM and finally the 160mm PBR dual crown monster for the DH set. Get on the wagon wheel or get out of the trail.
