I had an 06 R7 on a Specialized Epic Marathon and liked it fairly well. It took me quite a while to get the pressures right but I'm a little ahead of the curve on this one hopefully. I just got a great deal on it and couldn't afford another F100X. Plus I thought the published weights made the R7 a little lighter. I was in hopes of dropping 1/2 lb, but not so.cowDawg said:Very cool. Great looking bikes and excellent weights. My large weighs in at 27lbs.
I hope that R7 works out for you. We didn't have a very positive experience with an 06 R7 last year on the mrs. blur xc. She ditched it for an F100RLT. I heard they improved the R7 for this year though.
These are dedicated race bikes and I have a weird body. At 5' 10" my torso is a little short compaired to my legs, but arms a long. I am right on the border between medium and large and I always like a little more nimble frame so I chose the medium. Years of moto cross as a kid has fried my lower lumbars so I put extra spacers in to sit me up a little more.techFiend said:Nice, nice bikes..
That's quite a few spacers and a lot of seatpost showing. Um.. correct frame size?
not that there is anything wrong with owning 2 turners, but, the 23.9 one is for xc racing, right? so whats the +0.3 lbs. one for?arc angel adventures said:These are dedicated race bikes.
Dang it, I'm breakin the 24 lb barrier on Flux II. Just ordered some Mavic SL's and Maxxis 1.9's to drop some weight.PSI said:not that there is anything wrong with owning 2 turners, but, the 23.9 one is for xc racing, right? so whats the +0.3 lbs. one for?
just jealous, my flux must be at least +2.0 lbs.
Candy Blue! No metallic flakes just real glossy.Mark54 said:Arc,
Your bikes are beautiful! What is the official color of the frames? I see "candy blue" on the Turner site and "stock blue" or "dark blue" on other sites. I want to make sure that I get the right color and can't find one locally to look at. Also is there any metallic sparkle in the paint or is it flat?
