Three words...

The Scat Thread

You'll have to do your own search. I believe that the thread is a fine example of the quality posting which draws so much activity to the great and wonderful Turner Homers.

That and the fact that they (Turner owners) are so damn good looking.:D

Turner owners like their bikes and the designer of the bikes so much that they actually don't ride them very much for fear of getting them dirty or breaking something. Consequently they have lots of time on their hands and use it posting on the internet.

True. For Tscheezy's yard sale video, we were all far more concerned about the potential damage to his Turner.

Really, I thought it was because the bikes and people were so cool, guess I need to buy another Ellsworth so I'm not a poser.

I agree. I rode my Turner the other day and it got dirty. I can't believe that I took it off-road. Now I gotta clean and shine it....yet again. I also try to keep it out of the sun. I think that the finish will fade in the sun.

Then there's the grease that seeps from the pivots, but only if you use the bike. No use....no messy grease. :D

Seriously, though....I believe that a few of the posters...mainly Tscheezy and Bikezilla (there are others) really take the time to post thoughtful items. Without them here to spark interest.....the forum would suffer......imo.

Some Truth (hah--Truth, a pun--get it?)

Most of the above posts have at least some element of truth in them. But here is the secret reality:

Most Turner owners are so into mountain biking that we have sought out jobs that allow us to spend a lot of time on the forum during working hours.

We have successfully secured these jobs through our superior intelligence (and cunning), as amply demonstrated by our ownership of Turner bikes.

(God, I really am bored, where did this dang rain come from, anyway?)

Here in Socal we have some big cracks in the pavement on our beach trail, its truely hard to build anything on such fine grain sand, so the cracks do come and in order to enjoy the fine bikiniiery along the path, I need a plush bike to soak up those cracks so I dont have to watch the path in front of me-therefore I can study this years fabric and wonderful new colors in the swimwear. Thats why I ride a 6 Pack. :D

The Turner forum is popular because it is a microcosm of the rest of the boards: any and all bike-related questions get answered here by genuinely helpful and occassionally informed people, and a lot of the content is just really freaking entertaining (and unlike the hit and miss content on other boards, the overall quality here is decently high, this thread notwithstanding ;) ). We also post a lot of porn.

Yeah, the really difficult part was keeping the bike from flipping :p .

Ok, I admit...............it's time for some digital camera basics. I have an iMac on the way and hopefully the photo program will ease me through the learning curve.

iPhoto is a great/easy to master program. It grabs the pics off your camera without you lifting a finger, slaps them chronologically into your library, lets you rotate, crop, and do basic color corrections, export and indicate the desired file size/pixel dimentions, and generally make them buffed for mtbr. Good call.

Ok, ok, I'll take advantage of this porn fest and post some old dirty porn. ;) Terrible quality, vintage, straight from the vault.
Pokev, Good move getting the apple. Apples are the best.

1) tscheezy. like priests have conduits to god, tscheezy is our conduit to Turnerdom.

2) Dave Turner actually comes in here and participates. check the recent thread on the Highline update (here in Turner forum) or go to the DH/FR and see Dave's post there about the Highline.

3) the bikes ride phenomenally well. when you ride one you realize why people are so passionate about them. the designs are always being tweaked to improve performance -- or as Dave said in the Highline thread, FUN you can have on the bike.

4) the people in here seem to be pretty well-informed and experimental with components and you can find a lot of good info here w/o having to sift through wasted space in the Product Reviews, where you get a whole lot of "feels like the first time" new owner's glow.
