The hardest part of creating the Cyclosys was deciding how much 'gravel' and how much 'trail' to mix in to its capabilities. Make it too much of a gravel racer and it loses the confidence when the road narrows and the rocks get bigger, and of course if it is designed to excel on the roughest double track and single track it will become too sedate on the mellower surfaces. The Cyclosys is a culmination of many many variations over the years, as we have played the edges of what is capable enough without being dull.
Tire clearance up to 700x45 or 650x52 allows for some pretty capable tires to be installed and with these types of bikes, tires define the ride. The Cyclosys is optimized for tires 35-45mm. Change the tires, change the personality of the bike.
Really, at the heart of the Cyclosys is a love of adventure and a desire to enjoy every ride to its fullest. Perfectly tuned for hours and hours of dirt roads or jamming through your favorite single track. The newest version of the Cyclosys cannot be defined as anything other than balanced.
Is the Cyclosys perfect for a local gravel ride / race? How about ripping the local single track that has become mundane on your full suspension mountain bike? Or you scored an entry and are heading to Kansa this year? We think so...
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, the choice is yours and we will stand behind that choice. 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, either a different size frame or even a different model.
The whole purchasing process was excellent with great communication and timely shipping.The
frameset arrived in excellent condition and the quality was easy to see. The frameset built up nice and easy with a sram axs mullet. Plenty of room for 45's in the rear. The bike has that great ti ride with plenty of stiffness when you need to stand and crank. It feels very planted and stable on the descents and plows through the chunk when you need it. Thank you Turner Bikes!
I haven't even built it all up yet and I can tell it is going to be the best gravel bike ever.
The BBInfinite T47 DUB BB works great with this frame, lightweight, spins like crazy, silent and it is sealed so I expect no issues from it.
Built the bike last week. SRAM AXS Force group, Ritchey Venture Max 46sm handlebars (huge reminds me of my motocross times). Yoeleo SAT DB 45 Pro wheel-set. The Sunday prior went to the Philadelphia Bike EXPO and thought that I should not have, I walked in and saw a sea of Ti frames and bikes (really thought I was going to get frame-set envy), believe me the Cyclosys gives up nothing to the really expensive bikes there from T-Lab and No22 neither in workmanship or the little extras (fender, dropper post ready and mud cutter). I am a roadie that rides a TCR Advance SL that I just built earlier this year (6.3 kg build ready to ride) and I thought that I will find the Cyclosys heavy on the climbs around my place (the build came out at 9.2 kg ready to ride) but she climbs effortlessly, stable as a rock on fast descents, buttery soft while riding (compared to the TCR, Ti is like wearing ear muffs that quiets the outside chatter), stiff and quiet (I like my rides stealthy). I am more than happy with going this way and already sign up for a couple of Spring races that I am looking forward to.
David has been so helpful with the build answering all my questions and giving me great recommendations. The buy was easy and got the frame-set quick with no issues. I will do business with him again in a heartbeat (even so this frame most likely will last a lifetime).
The frame and fork arrived immaculately packed with a minimum of packing material. Thanks for protecting the contents without filling up my local landfill!
Frame itself has the beauty of any titanium frame. Welds are good quality, but perhaps not as perfect stack of dimes of higher end boutique builders. You don't fully understand the swage of the seat tube to the BB shell or the mud cutter indents on the chainstays until you see it in person. They look the business! Waiting on a few parts and will build up this winter as the gravel anything crusher for 2023.
