all-new Turner The Highline can be set up for either 7 or 8.5 inches of travel
just like the devinci freeride bikes.

this shocked me.

Lots of bike share suspension design.
Look at norco and specialized.

I noticed a few months back that Turner had copied Devinci's design (not that you can blame them, how else do you fit a long stroke shock on a Horst Link bike with a full seat tube?).

Sadly, since Devinci is not a member of the "FSR Alliance" in the states Devinci FS bikes use a faux-bar design instead (the pivot point is moved from the chainstay to the seat stay). So really in its target market, the USA, the Turner is a different design. I wonder if a lot of American's cross the border to pick up 6" and 8" Devinci Horst link bikes since they share all the design features (and I think quality) of the Turners for less coin?
