It's missing a kickstand.

What got you banned last time? Would you mind not scheduling your best (or worst) during the hours that I'm asleep as it appears I keep missing the fun stuff.

To the OP. I like Turner. Excellent reputation for making a quality product and a company that really, truly stands behind it.

Specialized, Intense and Kona for me. I have an '05 Specialized Enduro Expert and an '06 FSR XC Pro so I may be a little biased towards Specialized, but hey, I bought them for a reason. Lot's of other good ones out there as well. Personal preference.....100%

I've yet to ride a bike that handles like my '95 Gary Fisher Cronus.

I suspect that once I get a proper length fork (80mm vs 100mm) for my Klein I'll have found something that comes very, very close though.
