Anyone with extensive experience with both?

Been riding a Giant VT for the last 4 years, getting all wiggly on the backside.. I like the simplicity of the single-pivot, but love the workmanship of the Turner (this is the 2008, non DW design)

Premium placed on technical climbing and descending/handling. Generally a "survive the climb" kinda guy/painfully slow.

my 2 cents

I have ridden both bikes and used to sell SC bikes. I was not super impressed by the single pivot heckler. Don't get me wrong here, nice bike and was super stable. I have always personaly liked Horst/4bar type linkages as the feel more active in the rear, IMO. I really would go for the Turner, nice pedaling bike and good working suspension.
