Turner Flux or Mojo SL-R?
I'm looking at a new frame purchase, 26" wheels, light XC/trail bike to cope with the UK & top of my list are:
Turner flux (2012 model)
Mojo SL-R (2012 model)
Liteville 301 MK11
Cube HPC 150 SL
My question is any SL-R owners regret the purchase & which bottom bracket to use to ensure no creaking!
Love my SLR. Upgraded from a SL and the SLR is a fantastic trail bike. Light and stiff and a perfect bike for my local trails.
BB wise I am using a Race Face and a friend is using a Shimano on his SLR no creaks at all.
I'm reading this while seeing a Jenson ad on the side of the page for a complete Special Blend SL-R for $2949, and thinking bad things that would get me in big trouble at home! I know that's the way I would go, without a doubt, but I'm biased...
I have been riding a SL from day one, I think I bought it as soon as it got in production, and I simply love the bike. Along the way I changed to the new upper link, and added a Hadley rear 10mm through axle (a $25 upgrade), making the bike noticeably stiffer and holding its line much better in the turns. It is too bad that it is not in production any longer (maybe you can find one?), it was a very viable cheaper alternative.
But the SL-R is an upgrade in many respects and it would be my choice number one if I had to buy a new bike ...

Honestly you could probably sell the SL frame and the excess parts and come out pretty close to even. The only issue would be 650b clearance, the SL-R was known to have less than the SL.
