The yellow sticker needs to go!

Yeah, looks a lot like an IH. I've never heard that of a production Turner frame ...that it resembled another manufacturer. Old Skool Turners are pretty distinct in appearance.

It is a Small size frame.
The yellow sticker was removed.
I got a shorter stem on order.
I built it as a 1X9 with a DIY chain guide based on an aluminum boomerang, rear der. pulley and custom machined teflon parts. 160 gr and I can still machine some aluminum off the boomerang...

First ride today....

Versatile is the word ! :thumbsup:

Seat post was a bit too short, one thing keeps to amaze me still, I rarely feel that I need to lower my seatpost, dont have any explanation yet... :rolleyes:
Pedaling out of the saddle is a dream :D
The 2009 TALAS was a good choice, still the ride is inferior to the non TALAS models. I will have to shim it a bit differently later on :)

This bike makes the climbs a breeze and is very capable on the descents, BINGO !

Here are some pics from today....
