    09 Turner 5 Spot Refurb - Piccies
    I never did like the blue it came as (but it was cheap), so after 2 years decided that a re-fresh was called for, so here it is, both front and rear triangle painted and lacquered satin Black, a great job and a ‘big up’ for Fastline coatings in Preston Lancashire, England, super work.

    Decided that 1 x 10 was not for me and so have bitten the bullet and gone 2 x 10. New XTR front Mech , New Arch EX rims on pro2 evo hubs and a new 2 x MRP chain device and a XT Chainset

    Just needs some ‘5 spot’ decals for the TT and we are sorted for the next 2 years. :thumbsup: (or until another upgrade is purchased, which will probably be before the months out) ;)

    Mrp?
    Looks great, I've got almost the same project with an '09 5-Spot (a blue one!). Just had a question on how the 2x10 setup is working out and specifically the MRP. I'm always a little nervous about bottom bracket/friction mounted guides. Would like to know how it's working for you.

    Thanks!

    that shock doesn't hit the frame at full compression? the piggyback is huge and i was under the impression that the pre '10 frames could only take a very limited amount of piggyback shocks. i have a van rc and the piggyback is smaller but it doesn't look there's room for much more.

    I'm on a Medium 09/10 Spot and have used a DHX 5 Coil (with the BO knob removed) and now using a Monarch RC3. The fit is tight but I've yet to experience the piggyback hitting the downtube.

    right, but it appears that the monarch piggyback is much bigger and that is a small frame.

    The friction BB mounted chain device works a treat. I had a Gamut with my 2 x 9 set up and that was great as well.

    It cost £70, no shipping costs as the Powder coater is local.

    The shock dos not hit the downtube, neither did my Van R one either. I have tried both shocks with no air in the RS and no spring in the van R and they are close but they do not touch.

    very nice, going to put a pushed plus on my 11 spot soon. while your at the refurbish you may want to replace the seat stay rocker clevis bolts. Turner has updated those with a newer more stout version. :D

    Did they include a new bushing kit with the refresh? Seems that they would need to take them our for the sand blasting and repaint. Can't imagine they would put the old ones back in.

    I removed the bushes before i took it to the powder coaters. They masked all of the bush areas of and then coated it.

    I then re-installed all the bushes when they had caoted it. The bushes were perfect so no need to replace.
