Turner Sultan, DW link style

We got in our first DW link Turner Sultan today. For an XL frame, this thing is beautifully proportioned. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll let these do most of the talking.











Asymetrical stays with an elevated driveside mean no chainsuck.



Here's a look at the undercarriage. Note the greaseport. It's still a Turner ;)



I like dealing with Turner. Not only is their customer service second to none, also is their prepwork. Chased and faced bottom bracket, just like the doctor ordered.


Let's hear it for post mount rear brake tabs. One of David Turner's concerns with post mounts is how to remove a bolt if it gets stuck in there or broken off. He remedied that with removable threaded inserts. Genius.


The rear der cable routing will work perfectly with a SRAM or Shimano Shadow rear der.



The box section. It's still a Turner ;)


Drive side lower linkage.



Clean cable routing.


Let's hear it for the taco. It's still a Turner ;)


Another grease port. This is on the upper linkage.



Another view of the rea brake tabs, complete iwth immaculate welds.


more machining craftsmanship and beautiful welds.


Lower linkage frame pivot grease port.

There's been a lot of hype on these bikes. I can see why.

It really is. The intracacies in the forged pieces and the machined bits is amazing. Turner has definitely stepped it up.
