I have wanted a Turner for a long time. When my Grand mother passed away she left all her grand kids a little money. This is what I got with a portion of that. I bought it from Redstone Cyclery in Lyon's Colorado. I called Dave Chase and he set me up with this beauty. She's seen a few years now but she's just as stunning as ever. I changed the front shifter to a thumbie. Which I do on almost all my bikes. Recently I put new tires on it and the Maxxis rubber has made a huge difference.
