Scrub, a gnarly hardtail
Longer, lower, slacker, the Scrub takes post modern geometry to a whole ‘nother level from the Nitrous. Built around 150-160mm travel heavy duty forks and massive rear brake compatibility, this bike will bring eye watering speeds to everyone that gets aboard.
The wheelbase is plenty long so when going full gas down and bombed out enduro runs, the Scrub will provide plenty of stability.
The top tube has dropped to another level of low, offering more standover height than you ever thought possible on a mountain bike with 160mm fork. With the super low standover and unobstructed seat tube, the frame will take 280mm seat post insertion in a Regular size and 320mm in the Tall!
Last and certainly not least, Slack, with a 64.5 degree head angle, this is as slack as most will ever need for shredding the gnar.
Rear rotor is 180mm standard and anything bigger will fit, frame reinforcement is as tasteful as it is effective. The tube spec is beefed up to handle the added loads from a big fork and fierce lines and there are gussets in the highest stress areas. With tire clearance to handle 29x2.5 or 27.5 x 2.8” DH class tires, lack of tire isn’t going to slow this down.

Subtle shaping at the lower end of the Down Tube to the spread load over the BB shell and a dramatically flared Seat Tube both increase lateral rigidity for better feel when smashing the pedals. Along with the custom tapered chainstays, these subtle features set the Turner Ti ahead of the pack when it comes to ride tuning.
Bolts are stronger, stiffer, and simpler. Which is exactly why all our bikes come with them, it simply makes sense.
Every aspect of this Turner Ti frame is designed and engineered in the USA. From the gorgeous CNC tapered head tubes to the proprietary dropouts, we have designed every aspect of the frame.
As you probably figured out from the great price and long list of standard features, this frame is imported. We found this factory when we were producing the carbon Flux frames many years ago. Soon after we started developing the first Ti Cyclosys with them. Our frames are not the first or the only Ti bicycle frames they build, as they are a factory long known for building world-class titanium mountain and road frames. What drew us to this factory was their ability to taper and create butted titanium tubing, and their massive CNC capabilities allowing us to create exactly what we wanted with out cookie cutter head tubes, bottom brackets and dropouts. Even our chainstay bridge is CNC out of billet to be super thin and not create a mud shelf!
‘T’ stands for threaded! Due to popular demand threads are back, and the new T47 offers bigger bearings & longer service life than older threaded standards. It will easily fit the larger and 30mm aluminum spindle creating a stiffer crank assembly, which is up to 18% lighter than the traditional steel spindle system.
'Post Mount' rear brake caliper type are MUCH easier to source mountain bike brakes than almost exclusively OE flat mount combinations. The other BIG benefit is that a lightweight 4 piston trail bike caliper like SRAM G2 or Shimano XT/XTR can easily be sourced and bolted on.
Simply put, we know that you are going to love your new Turner Bike. But given the chance that it just doesn’t seem to fit right, we want to ensure that you will be happy in the long run.
Our customer service rocks and our bikes ride like no other, but in the end, we want it to fit you. If you cannot get comfortable on your new Turner Bike within 5 days of receiving it, give us a call and we will work out a solution, you may only need a different stem, or length of seat post. If that won't work, a different size frame can be swapped out.
