Beautiful bikes! I have always been intrigued by the 'Turner' style Billies. This one appears to have never seen the trails, but any comment on how they ride? Is there a lot of pedal bob & mushy feel to them?

There's no bob or mushy feel, in fact, they're the best riding, short travel bike I've ridden. Mine has a Risse shock on it, with a Judy front end so nothing too sophisticated. If you put an air fork and shock on one you would be hard pressed to beat it on a trail even now.
