    2012 5 Spot Setups

    I just finished my build of my new 2012 5.Spot yesterday. I got a short ride in yesterday before work on dry trails and the bike was great. I can't wait to get some more time in on a variety of trails but so far the bike is exactly what I was looking for. It just snowed a foot here in Boulder so I thought I would start this thread since riding isn't really an option today.

    Anyways here is the setup

    Frame Size & Color: Medium, Black Ano
    Rear Shock: Fox RP23, Kashima
    Fork: Rock Shox Revelation World Cup, 15QR
    Brakes: Shimano XTR Trail
    Shifter: Shimano XTR
    Cranks: Shimano XTR Triple
    Chainguide: None
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR Shadow Plus, SGS
    Pedals: Shimano DX (Specialized Platform in the pictures)
    Stem: Thomson X4, 70mm
    Handlebar: Answer Protaper Carbon AM
    Seatpost: Specialized Command Post Blacklite, 100mm
    Saddle: WTB Silverado
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano XTR
    Chainring: 24, 32, 42
    Cassette: Shimano XT, 11-34
    Headset: Cane Creek 40
    Grips: ODI Ruffian
    Front Tire: Schwalbe Hans Dampf, 2.35
    Front Rim: Stan's Flow
    Front Hub: Industry Nine Enduro, 15QR
    Rear Tire: Schwalbe Hans Dampf, 2.35
    Rear Rim: Stan's Flow
    Rear Hub: Industry Nine Enduro, 142X12

    Weight: 28.25lb

    Future changes: Might try a Reverb instead of the command post since I usually prefer 0 offset posts. Switch the triple crank to a double in the summer if I can ride myself into shape.

    Rider
    Weight: 155lb
    Height: 5' 8"


    Let's see some more Spots!

    OMG, mouth watering rigs!

    Are you boys running tapered steer tubes? I'm still a bit confused on the headsets for tapered steerers and the 44mm headtube.

    Hi
    I got a Chris king headset of mine (model inset 7 (inset upper and external lower which accept tapered steerer)
    I have also a Cane Creek forty (delivered with frame but never used) which is the same (inset upper and external lower)
    But unfortunately I live in France

    Does anyone know if all the 2012 frames came with the Kashima RP23s? I see one bike with.. one without. My frame just showed up with a Float RL. I was assuming I'd get the new RP23.

    You can get it either way. There is an upcharge for kashima version.

    Aye. I just called Turner. The RL is standard and they said after testing nearly everyone preferred it as the DW link really does not need propedal.

    Also apparently the RLs are coming already equipped with the spacer mod a lot of riders were doing on their own.

    iPhone posted that too soon. I thought they all came with the rp23 kash also, but it's a $150 upgrade. Does anyone know if the rp23 comes with the spacer mod like the RL?

    volume reducer

    We have been shipping bikes with the Fox volume reducer installed since about June of 2011. Fox makes 3 spacers, and we have them install the middle one. The RL have it as well. For heavier or more gnarly riders the big spacer can be substituted, for riders that are lighter/smoother and after proper sag cannot get full travel, can either put the small spacer in or remove it completely. Of course using the DGC mod allows infinite adjustability.

    Yup, as turner said above, some of the 2011s have it. My blue-sky blow out frame had a RP23 with the spacer. I first took it out but have put it back and actually added another small piece in the secondary can (lard ass I am). For us bigger guys (200 lbs) the spacers are absolutely required.

    Hi everyone,
    I just want to chime in with a general question regarding Fork and headset options on the '12 spot.
    I'm currently riding the '09 spot with a CK headset and a Fox Float 150mm 32mm 15qr fork and it feels perfect.
    I've read lots of different opinions on here about what works best with what on the new geometry and the difference in head angles etc. and I know there are threads with lots of info regarding this, but what I would really like to know is first hand from the riders on the new 2012 spot's how they are finding their setups. I'll be upgrading to the 2012 this year and will be fitting it out with a Fox Float 36 fork, but do I fit an internal HS or external lower cup? Also do I lower the stack height on the fork to 150mm or leave it at 160mm?
    Type of riding I do is All Mountain /Trail/Enduro.
    My original thinking was to fit an internal HS and lower the fork to 150mm but after reading the threads on here I'm thinking internal and leave the fork, maybe at a later date I could lower it and see how it handles.
    So if anyone is thinking a similar thing or has tried these options on their '11 spot I would love to hear from you.
    And all you guys on 2012 spots, please let me know how your getting on.
    Thanks in advance

    Rick

    If you're going with a Fox 36 Float get it Tapered and lowered it to 150 with an external HS cup. You can't run an internal cup with a tapered steerer. Might as well get the benefit of the stiffer steerer and give up 10mm in travel. This setup will put the geometry the same as having the fork at 160 with an internal cup. You can always try the fork at 160 as well to see if you like it.

    Do you ever plan on using a tapered fork, if so you need to use a 44 EC lower. You can use your current 1 1/8 fork with the EC using the reducer base plate (CK calls it a devo).

    Hi Guys,
    Cheers for the input, to be honest whether I use tapered or straight isn't an issue in some regards, I will prob get a straight 1 1/8 as my other two Mtb's can only take that size and it's great to be able to swap stuff out, in case of damage or servicing etc. Also it would give every opportunity for trying different combos of headset and fork length.
    Is tapered so much different, like noticeably different?

    I'm still really keen to hear from people regards the feel of the bike regards new geometry and HS/Fork combo's.
    Seems internal and 160mm travel are favourite looking at setups

    Black

    Here is mine, cobbled together from parts from trusty, but now retired, '08 RFX. 31lbs today with dreams of 28lbs someday. Rode it for the first time today, same trails, same style of riding compared to the RFX. Some fine tuning left to do, but already better in all areas. Unreal.

    I won't waste data with a text listing of my build. Just photos..

    techFiend & erlau, I love the black ano frames, very sweet bikes.

    I started off with a Turner XCE, then the HL 5 Spot, stupidly I sold my 5 Spot when I test rode the SC Nomad at the bike shop where I worked, I've never really enjoyed riding the Nomad as much as my Turners so now I think its time to go and purchase a new DW 5 Spot. I just cant decide on the size. I'm 5'9" with a 30" inseam but I have a longish torso and arms, my old 5 Spot always felt a bit small, I was running a laid back Thomson seat post and a 90mm Thomson stem. What are your thoughts on frame sizing?

    Thanks

    Mark

    Just took my 2012 Spot out for its maiden voyage and it was amazing. When I got it, thought it might be too big but it is right on, just wasn't use to the longer fork. I am 5'10, 185lbs and about 200lbs with all my gear and I am on a large. 100mm stem, could actually be a little bit bigger if I wanted but I am happy where it is at. Also, have a 30 inseam, Mark I couldn't imagine being on a medium, it'd be too small without a doubt.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Following the instructions from the support page I measured my Nomad and it appears that it's pretty much the same as the medium 5 Spot, I find it a bit confusing as my old HL 5 Spot looked like a kids bike.

    Anyway best get this thread back on topic any other new 2012 Spots? Anyone?

    The website lists the frames as coming with the RP23, not the Float. Confused. I'd prefer the RP23, its more expensive too.

    Click on "What size shock...." It says there they come with the RP23.

    Ah, I finally found where the specs are as you listed. But there is inconsistency with the FAQs section regarding the shock.

    I believe DT responded somewhere in these forums that the bikes come with a RL.

    My New Spot

    I have owned 5 turners over the last 17 years- 1995 Burner-2012 5 Spot,Wow the evolution has been amazing! My new Spot is made up off gear from my 2009 spot with the addition off the I9 enduro wheelset. These wheels are Amazing, Super stiff and light. Really think DT has set the benchmark with this 2012 spot with awesome handling,Stable under speed and climbs like nothing else I have riden thanks to the DW link. It will be hard to improve on this model. I have a 2002 RFX as well and have loved riding this bike over the years,But this 2012 is really totally redefined the benchmark for the Turner stable. I have to stay a big thankyou to DT for keeping the pursuit of excellence alive-you have come pretty close to perfection with this current model. In my opinion the best Trail/All Mountain rig on the market today.

    I've been on 3 different spots the last 9 years (ish). Just picked up the 2011 last year, and I built it up very beefy. 36 Talas, DH rims, RP23, Avid Elixirs, Sram X-9 drivetrain. The bike is 34 lbs, and could be lighter with a tubeless set up. Rode the bc bike race on it and it was great on everything that circuit had from fire road climbing to very steep gnarly downhill stuff. If you are a big dude, get a beefier build and you won't notice the weight. If you are a smaller dude, consider how much beef you really need for what you are doing.

    Congrats. I wish I could buy a new one eery year. These 12's look awesome.

    5 Spot Build

    My 5 Spot weighs in around 31lbs and for the style off riding I do feel this is a good compromise between been to lite and breaking things and to heavy and riding like a tank. IMO I think you should consider the style of riding you do the most off and build it to suite this, Bearing in mind that the Spot is a Enduro/AM bike. Hope this helps.

    hi 2012 owners!can someone please post a picture of the distance between the rotor and the frame?mine I think is less than .5mm. I think I should have bought a 12x142 specific hub and not a converted one. thanks!

    Any of you guys killing Strava out?
    It's huge here in the UK, everyone is on it!

    Only 3 rides in on the new steed, previously had 2005 horst link spot, TNT spot and the 2009 DW link - so will have a great idea on the subtle tweeks and changes and how they have improved the ride. Have to say it feels ultra plush and extremely stiff in the rear.
    As for people having set up issues regards front mechs etc im having none, shimano SLX double specific mech from the 9 speed group (off my old spot) coupled with 38t and 24 t front rings - running with a 36t raceface bash (just enough coverage, 38 specific bash is too big to allow the mech to operate down to the 24t ring).

    Anyone like it??

    I've been thinking of taking advantage of Turner's frame trade in program for my 2004 Burner and getting a 5.Spot. I just can't seem to get rid of the Burner though. Every time I think of giving it up I feel a little sad. I know it would be going back to Turner to be recycled and live on, but it only helps a little.
    I like to ride bikes.

    Yes you will
    This Spot will transformed into a MORE nimble, fast and climbing friendly one at 27-28lbs,
    A balance front and rear suspension that you can ride all day long

    For those trails that need MORE, a new porky, heavy, tougher setup from the other coolaid brand is on the way
    When trails gets tougher, Just stand up and deliver.

    I have unusually long legs and I'm glad I got the XL, it fits like a glove. I've only one short ride on this bike and still have to dial in the fork/shock/tire setup, but I'm extremely impressed.

    Sorry for the crappy pic.
