Anyway, we’ve all seen your Ellsworth so your opinion is null and void.
Au contraire, that proves my expertise.
And honourablegeorge’s pic shows the classic Turner aesthetics- cut n shut so the rear end doesn’t line up with the front. Still, they’ve got the chainstays looking better these daysPosted 3 years agoAlexMember
I normally find myself nodding when reading NW’s posts. Thankfully to save me from any kind of stalker-ism, he’s finally outed himself. Agreed top turner is rank, Medium is okay, old ones were industrial chic 🙂

I’ve owned an ellsworth. And I’m not proud of the fact

I seem to remember him owning something even fuglier…an on-one perhaps? or a titus? Can’t recall exactly what it was now.
I don’t know what could be uglier tbh. My hemlock looked like one of those french wooden swing bridges and the C456 had been left too close to a radiator but nothing compares… The miraculous thing is, the Dare rode almost as badly as it looked. Its only redeeming feature was I sold it for more than I paid to some blind german.Posted 3 years agoOnzadogMember
The skin wall tyres might not be my first choice but it’s certainly eye catching.
I really like the RFX. It looks like a classic hardtail frame rather than the modern swoopy, bendy for the sake of u full sus bikes.
The bike in the op’s pic belongs to someone. I’d guess that it’s been carefully chosen for fit rather than what I bunch of people who aren’t even going to ride it might think. And no, it’s not my bike.Posted 3 years agopickleMember
Just come across this on ebay……..apologies if the seller is on here but christ it’s uglyPosted 3 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
I’m no aesthete, so that Turner must be ugly as I quite like it (tyres aside)
I admit, it looks like it should have Nicolai written on it but that’s fine by me; I slightly distrust pretty bikes anyway. REALLY short stems still look odd to me too
… and anyway, Turner seems to be a company that gives a toss about its reputation and its customers (or did – is that still the case ?)Posted 3 years agobutterbeanMember
If it’s meant to be a Silverfish showcase, that’s an odd looking set of Formula brakes on it. 😉
It doesn’t ming as much as the other one, but it still mings, those forks would look vile even to Stevie Wonder.
Speaking of the godfather of soul, have DVO still got him painting their forks? Runs & finishes so bad it could only be because the painter is blind 🙂Posted 3 years ago
