    Turner is letting everyoneput the bikes to the test,50 bikes at IB and no indoor booth then straight to this demo-he wants everyone to ride the new bikes before the fire gets too big to put out.
    All the bikes i rode were great at IB.
    the Highline was really sweet

    Yes i got heavily serviced,38 lb secret sunday with a DHX and 300# spring,air boxxer,brakes were even set up all close to the bar,the whole 9 yards.

    man,it's been a while since i was totally blown away on a bike other than the Cuervo. This bike was nuts! i never even slid sideways or got loose on the whole run i took.Now i only rode it on 1 run without pads on so it's hard to really say just how good it was,but i was amazed non the less.

    I wonder if the bike could handle hard landings and g outs with that 300 lb spring, my cuervo is pretty sick when running 40% or more sag too....

    For certain courses though i could see how this bike is the fastest way down the mountain.

    I didn't even think of pedaling it though,off camber jagged rocks and no pads,no way was i going to hit the pedals and get tossed.

    Also it pedaled very poorly on the dirt road up to the shuttle. 1/2 sag and low psi,no propedal it was SOFT!! That's how Sam wins races though.

    Was a fun bike to ride, props to Turner.Southridge, and the BikeCo guys for the fun sat of riding and lunch.

    Highline nice ass ride, def a freeride bike, not a race bike like the DHR.
