Hey there,

I'm in the process of selling my bike and am hoping to join the Turner-world - been lurking for some time now and can't help but be thoroughly impressed with all that is Turner.
Just wondering what I should expect a 19.5" XCE frame to put me back - if I can find one that is? I'd love to be looking for a 5 Spot but the price of admission would be way to steep for me, which is why I'm thinking about an XCE.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Mike E.

XCE's sell for between $500 and $700 depending on shape (chips, dents, etc), shock (stock Vanilla, Romic, Pushed Vanilla), and style of rockers (X, XR, both). That is for the frame and shock, assuming a late model (2001-2002).

Just hanging on the hooks

Hey Mike E,
I have a 19.5 black XCE just hanging on the bike rack making me feel guilty. I have been riding SS and 29r, so the hotrod is not getting any love. :( I was thinking of posting it in the ads to help it find a loving home. PM me if your interested. Tex

Just curious about the different rockers mentioned. What's the difference between them? Are the XR the one's that will let you use a non-proprietary (sp.)shock? Is travel (4") the same with either set of rockers?

Sorry for the rambling on, but it's early and I'm going to be late for work if I don't lift my arse off the chair here....

The "normal" rockers have 3.6" of travel. The XR rockers have 4" of travel.

Both use shocks with different stroke lengths. Normal is 1.75" I believe, the XR uses a 1.5" stroke.

Spud, seperately your statements are accurate, but the way you presented them could confuse a person.

This is true when both are used with a 1.5" stroke shock.

This is true when both are setup for 4" of travel: the normal rockers will require a 1.75" stroke shock to achieve 4", but the point of the XR's is that they squeeze 4" of travel out of a 1.5" stroke shock.

Maybe this table will help clear up any confusion.

Thanks guys,

Well, the frame I'm looking at has the 1.75" stroke with the standard rockers, so 4" it is. I've pulled the trigger on it and once my old bike meets it new owner (hopefully within a day) things will be happenin'.
Can't wait to become a homer - just need to scrounge up a fork and brakes.

Yee-haw!

It's been a sad day for us here...rode the last wheelie down the street, dropped off the old log ride, and washed the bike...even the dogs looked sad :D

It is now being wrapped and packed for a ride to it's new home. I'm adding a couple of extra goodies to send you into the Turner fold. I know you will dig the bike and the Turner family. Tex
