    Wheels arrived and I spent about 20 minutes drooling over every detail of it before I slapped it on my 2012 and beyond ride.

    Loo, at that point of the trail, I'm just saving every forearm muscles I have for the long and relentless steeeeeeep sections ahead. You need to come and visit and spread some southern charm among the powder room Socal boys here on fanboi pajamas. :)

    Hi all, new to the forum. I know she's nothing fancy but after riding my local resort a bunch, and hitting mammoth once on my XC bike last year, I decided to step it up a bit for 2012.

    well, since trevor posted his, I have to show our's. There's an XL missing but you get the idea... Deity, Shimano, Fox, e13, etc. I came off of a 2011 Session 88 this last year and a Commencal Supreme DH the year before, the Wilson is the best of both worlds-dick crushing and "playful". So stoked to shred this thing to death.

    I like the Wilsons. Never ridden one before so I have to test one but might be the next bike once my Sunday dies....only problem is that there are nearly no new Wilsons running in Germany

    Like bobsten said, the Wilson is seriously the best of both worlds, plows anything in its path, feels bottomless, is incredibly stable due to low c.o.g., yet is super responsive and will hop, skip and jump down the trail at your command.

    you must've mistaken me for somebody else. I've never ridden nor owned a turner. the bike is from a quite small german brand last-bikes, it's their dh model herb.

    Clean! Nearly as clean as the Silencer. Thankfully they stick to clean lines in a world of stupidly hydroformed-for-the-sake-of-it alu frames.

    haha. sorry. I only got one day on it and all we did was skid. It skids REALLLY well.

    Couldn't tell about pedal feedback.. I've never been one to complain about that occurrence and I also ride clips which kind of helps mitigate.
