It's a huge day in dw-link world! (Turner content)

Well, today is a big day in dw-link history, one of the biggest actually.

For months, riders have been asking and wondering who the next dw-link licensee will be. There has been almost giddy anticipation on the mountain biking forums that I peruse. This is how crazy it's gotten; With so many posts on the subject, even I have felt a little uncomfortable at times, and I think that a few readers have gotten so sick of seeing the title that they actually may resent me a little somehow! (Its not my fault that people are fired up, I swear!!) :)

SO, Anyways. I am so happy to report that the one and only Turner Bikes (http://www.turnerbikes.com/) is the fourth and newest dw-link licensee. We have been working on this collaboration for a long time now and finally we get to show the world what we have been working on. I am really excited about the new bikes, I can't wait to have a couple production models in my stable.

I went to the MTBR.com Turner forum to see what people thought of the lineup. I was astounded to see that there were 631 people! viewing the forum at one time. That is ridiculous, typically if a forum breaks 200 people that's a huge number. To say that I am stoked for Dave Turner is an understatement. He is one of the nicest and hardest working people that I have ever met. If the interest in his new bikes is any indication of how support for the brand will be this year then he will have a great year. He deserves it! I am so happy to be a part of helping him out with that.

Take a look at their website to see the new bikes, I hope that you like them!

I need to figure out how to get some pictures into this blog, but first, I'm going to go for an XC ride.

Congrats on the deal! I'm exited too. Now I can get to try a new suspension type without changing brand... Again! I've had both horst and TNT Turners

You need to update the website though :-)
