    Does Anyone Have...

    Hi.

    Does anyone have a Sultan (Turners answer to a 29er), that lives in NJ or know anyone near the area?

    I was thinking about getting rid of my 5 Spot frame and getting a Sultan. But I wanna ride it first to feel the difference before I make the plunge.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,
    Db

    dirty bert, i do not own a sultan but i did get to spend some time on one. i absolutely loved it. both are great bikes and very different. to me, the sultan felt faster and more efficient. maybe it was all in my head but i felt that i could hold more momentum going into turns and technical sections. I have a BMX background so i like to jump and carve turns. the spot feels more nimble and flickable, more all mountain and more managable in the air. when i rode the same sections on the spot and the sultan, i was not held back by either bike. the sensations were different but both delivered smiles. both rocked. hope this helps.
