Just as another option, I have a Turner Lite, which is a similar model and love it. Right now it's
on my porch hooked up to a Cyclops Fluid Trainer and it's a great workout, but I ride it a lot. In
traffic I usually prefer a traditional bike though.

I will add one caveat, complaint about Turner. I hope he reads this. Feel free to forward it. He
makes a newer model. He says he uses Shimano components. I asked which one's and he completely
ignores that question. There's a huge range of components, and it's a very reasonable question.
Especially from an existing Turner rider.

Milt Turner is sort of quirky with e-mail, he's honest, but sometimes better to contact him direct
by phone. I rode one two summers ago, it's a good bike. Another bike i'd highly consider is a Vision
R40, you can get them for 8-900 now, and action bent jetstream's for 600.00, is really nice, i'm
riding both now.

I never thought I would find a bike as comfortable as my Ryan Vanguard, but my Haluzak Hybrid Race
is definitely a tie. I rode my HHR with the local roadie guys this last season and at several HPRA
races (I'm the only tall one amongst all those lowracers) and it was a dream.

It is built very well. I met a guy from Chicago last fall who has been riding his Horizon like crazy
in all kinds of hellish conditions and it's holding up just fine. Highly recommended.
