    Looks like Turner pulled the page..... well cat's out of the bag now!

    I didn't see this coming at all. I assumed it was gonna be a big dog who minted the deal with the DW link. Makes sense for Turner though, having a high quality version of a Kona faux bar made the marketing a bit tough ;)

    I think their web guy might have jumped the gun a little since Dave said this wasn't supposed to be released until tomorrow :p

    Now the attention can shift to whom Sam Hill will be riding for next year.

    I think that some clever person just looked at the current 08home.html and switched the 8 to a 9. That's world-class security right there :clapping:

    Really, now this information has been released 24 hours early, maybe Dave Turner will have to man the phones a little earlier than expected, but the world does not change much.

    People will order their $3500 frames with the same alacrity that anyone would with $3k+ to drop on a luxury item.

    I laugh at the secretness. This is a small volume industry, and I doubt company secrets will change the world.

    Funny part is, how many unannounced releases have been discovered that way? Why do companies still insist on doing that?

    No, it's half past ten PM in Germany.

    Still some hours to go, before Eurobike opens its doors.

    i saw a dwlink/5 spot pdf sticker drawing thing up on a computer screen a month ago at turner but my lips were sealed.....i didn't say a thing.....

    knowing that made all of these e-rumors even more amusing.....

    so pumped on that collaboration....the two brightest dudes in the undustry coming together to make the sickest homegrown race rig money can buy:rockout::rockout::rockout:

    these forums are great for that purpose. sit back and laugh as you watch the kids hype up rumors. and then laugh again when the truth pops up a tiny bit early.

    Oh man. I give it 1 week before the forums and ebay are flooded with 08 and older turners for sale as all the homers scramble to get their hands on a dw link.

    I don't think the old Turner guys will scramble for the new DW link bikes.

    They're sure to ride completely differently, as their linkages are NOTHING alike.
