Thanks Turners

I skipped my normal group ride and got a short lap with the Spot and and a 4 times longer ride on the Sultan. As allways cool to talk with the Turners.
My shortened lap on the Spot was due to my over excitment at the chance to check out the DW brother of my HL Spot. We checked all the shock and tire pressures, altered the h bar and seat attitudes to fit me and then I thought I'd just set the seat hight at the trail; big mistake. The seatpost was too short for me to extend my legs by about an inch, so while I could tell that it climbs well, I couldn't do a real ride. I'll have to get out to Turner for a real ride.
The Sultan is a big improvement over the TNT version IMHO, but part of that could be that they make one in umpalumpa size now. I noticed very few of the big +- of 29rs you hear so much of, with the exception of them being a little harder to pedal up really steep climbs. It handled a couple dozen switchbacks no problem, stalled out at about the same place I do with my 26" bikes. I didn't notice much difference in traction, DH ability; and the notion that having a 29r is like riding a 26r with an inch more travel.... no way. Great bike but I want more travel and the lower gearing of the smaller wheel. Thanks again for the test rides.

Holy crap that is cold - We finally got our cold snap here in Vancouver - was -1C today and we actually have 1" of snow on the ground! :rolleyes:

If you do the meat grinder thing make sure you video it and post on youtube......

Thanks for showing up.

Thanks to all of you that showed up at Laguna Beach Cyclery. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to ride, the temperature was “just right”.

CP and DT
