My 2 Cents

IMO - A vintage ride is just what it is - older technology. If you don't care about 100+ mm of travel or disc brakes or modern shocks or modern components than a vintage bike is for you. However do not fool yourself into thinking that a vintage bike will perform as well as a modern bike or that you will be able to find readily available parts for vintage bikes. Don't get me wrong I have a lot of vintage bikes and do like riding them around, but my every week trail bike is a modern bike and by modern I mean any frame with an 1-1/8" head tube and disc brake tabs.

All that being said If I was in the market for a modern FS frame I'd get a Turner.
