It’s Friday! And the bike ridin’, trail shreddin’, drop nailin’, sweet jump jumpin’ weekend is nearly here.
But first here’s the Freshest Goods to hit the ST Towers doormat this week…
Dave’s only just unpacked from Garda and now he’s off to Finale, for another gelato fuelled bike trip. This time he’ll be riding this stealthed up 140mm and 27.5 Turner Burner.
The 44mm headtube and gusseting makes for a stiff front end with the option to run a zero stack headset to keep everything nice and low.
Traction and anti bob courtesy of the dw link back end. Refined using maths by Dave Weagle for optimum pivot placement.

How to pack the Turner? With an Evoc bike travel bag of course. One of the nicest featured bike bags we’ve seen.
