This is the kind of bike build we usually find on US forum such as mtbr. But today, we want to yell “cocorico” since these are two french men at the beginning of this crazy mountain bike. The rider is Sebastien, you already know him as the owner of a Salsa Beargrease. The second man is Julien from Cyen Bicycles, the distributor of Turner Bikes in France.
Here is their baby – a 100mn carbon frame – the first full suspension carbon frame from Turner, seated on 29er wheels.
There are no compromises on the components selection: brand new Magura Elect fork, Magura MT8 brakes, XX1 drivetrain with Rotor crankset (with ovoid ring), and Duke Wheels with Tunes hubs – 1 376 gr for the set. Reverse and Enve components completes the shopping list.
We won’t talk about the price of this bike build but we have another KPI that could interest you: 10,5 kg on the balance for a XL bike. Enough to tempt you for a bike test ?
