oooh, nasty. that looks like a turbine? though they was supposed to be top notch.


I think they were at their lowest point then I think. These were a warranty replacement for a lovely pair of gold turbines that I had for years that developed a long crack down the driveside. These ones were replaced with a spanking pair of Deus XCs that have been on their for the last few years.

I cracked my scott scale headtube in 5 places!

Sleepless in the saddle, 3 am ther was a loud noise then the bike was rattling. Headset was loose cos the bottom of headtube had opened up like a peeled banana. 4 year old bike, guess how long is scott warranty.

had a chain snap on my bmx just as i was powering up a jump which left a good few scrapes.
also had a steerer snap on a set of forks, was horrible when it happened as i couldnt do anything about it and went crashing down on my face. Scratched my brand new xtr levers too :cry:
