    2008 Turner Highline, size large, USA made frame.
    Fox DHX 5.0 rear shock, PUSH tuned in 2011.
    Offset shock bushings installed last year to slacken head angle and lower bottom bracket.
    Marzocchi 66RC3 fork, 1.5" steerer, completely rebuilt by Marzocchi in 2011. Softer spring installed, Firmer spring also included.

    Maxxis Minion 3C DHF 2.5 & DHR 2.4 tires, new this season with only 3-4 rides on them
    Sram x.9 shifter & rear derailleur

    Transition saddle

    FSA 1.5" stem

    This bike is a beast, it can handle anything. I mostly used it for DH parks but it can be pedaled a bit when needed such as local freeride trails. The bike is mechanically solid; cosmetically there are some paint chips on the top tube and down tube and one small dent in the down tube above the BB.

    Sold locally via Craigslist.


    Yes, but also over 8 years ago now. I picked up a Banshee Darkside to replace it, which is very similar just more modern.

    Ha, I think the shortest time I have owned a bike was 2 years - my Iron Horse Kumicho that I sold when I bought the Highline. Most are around 3 years, the Highline was a survivor in that sense.
