Steelset, nice. You ride that in the park? There were some great 4x frames out in the mid 2000s that could be built into killer trail bikes.

My buddy has this ancient Blur 4x that, in hindsight was incredibly forward thinking.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Rad bike!

I've got one of Andrew Neethling's old bikes that I've been meaning to sell forever! If anyone is keen let me know. Bike is located in Los Angeles.

Not a park bike, not really a slopestyle bike, not sure what thread this belongs in…

25.77 pounds as pictured. 2005ish Turner 4X team frame.


I've always wanted this frame, and I saw this one pop up for sale in Europe while I was planning a vacation. So I had it shipped to my hotel and brought it home with me, built it up with spare parts from my home garage and my bike shop's broken shit bin. Turned out pretty stellar all things considered.

Frame: 2005 Turner 4X, medium, w/ Fox RP3
Fork: 2008 Fox 36 Float R (old, kinda heavy, barely works)
Headset: Chris King Steelset with a gorgeous patina
Stem: Kore Repute
Bar: Deity CZ38
Grip: Dartmoor Block
Seat: Selle Italia SLR
Seatpost: Deity Syringe
Cranks: Truvativ Stylo + 36t Ebay narrow-wide w/ alu bolts
Chain: Shimano CN-6701
Shifter: Shimano Saint 10 speed
Housing: Nokon
Derailleur: Shimano XTR M9000 w/ Zee cage
Cassette: Shimano Tiagra reduced to 6 gears, 11-19
Pedals: Deity Compound
Brake: Shimano XTR Race M985 level on XT M785 caliper, ti bolts, NSB adapter, Ashima Ai2 rotor
Front wheel: Sun Inferno 31/DT Comp/Atomlab Pimplite DJ, Maxxis Crossmark 2.1"
Rear Wheel: Sun Inferno 31/Comp/Hadley SS, Continental Race King 2.0"

Purchased this the other day. The first bike in a long time that I will actually run in its stock form, well almost. Although it does seem pretty dialed right out of the box. Well I will be changing rear shock to a CCDB Air and converting to tubeless. Just waiting on some Gamut pedals and for some more snow to disappear.

Very nice! I wish I could get a fox version.

Leaning towards a Tues this year. As for carbon rims, that'd impact my willingness to ride out a flat from Garbo. I'll stick to bomb proof 570s.

Waaaah, nice bike!

But don´t swap that lovely Vivid for a DB Air. The Vivid is super nice!
