    Turner Drive System

    I'm willing to pay good money for an aftermarket AWD (dual wheel drive) Turner Drive System or the Turner Drive System from a Herrington Crusader II BMX bike.

    Let me know if you know where I can get one. I'll also give a reward for info if it leads to a purchase.

    Thanks.

    Turner Drive Systems was a company based in Arkansas that made a power take off system to transfer power from rear wheel to front wheel via a flexible shaft drive.

    Rare and hard to find from what I can see.

    Christini's system is somewhat similar from what I can tell

    That's pretty sweet. But what is the point?

    The point is increased traction apparently. Never having ridden one, I cannot comment on that.

    seems about a useful as adding a back brake to a bike that already has a front brake, considering that when you accelerate hard your front wheel naturally lifts a bit and isn't going to have enough traction to make powering it worth the trouble.

    If your power output is being equally split front to rear, the front end loft would be lessened, IMHO. Ever watched an all wheel drive car launch hard off the starting line versus a rear wheel drive car? The AWD stays level, while the RWD squats at the back and lifts at the front.

    The same thing may not transfer to bikes, but it may.

    This isn't the circumstance that the drive is designed for. One of the circumstances is when your back wheel loses traction.

    True, and although the power output is not split equally, the idea does transfer in some fashion to these drives.

    Definately not impossible...I have two Turner Drive System AWD setups...I did a search trying to find more information and stumbled accross this thread. The yellow bike is a crusader I frameset with a crusader II fork and a aftermarket AWD setup. The aftermarket AWD setup is designed for a mountain bike. The white bike is a crusader II has the bmx AWD setup. I have spoke with Chad Herrington about both of these bikes...He has no idea how the aftermarket AWD MTB setup ended on the crusader I, but he has told me that the Crusader II that I have is one that he had custom built. According to Chad, only 50 Crusader II's (frame sets) and 75 Crusader I's (frame sets) were ever produced...

    If you guys have any more information, let me know...

    The Turner system is not awd- it's 2wd, 50/50. I read a review where a guy tested a new display model on a set of rollers, he used one of the brakes instead of both, destroying the drive system.

    Christini is awd, the front drive is over driven, it really only engages when the front wheel slips.
    The speed is break neck, faster than a high speed dual cassette tape deck.
