    5.Spot demo in sf bay area?

    I'm interested in demoing a 5.Spot. Is there anywhere to demo one in the bay area? I noticed Sunshine Bicycle in Fairfax is listed as a Demo center, but their website doesn't list any Turners: Demo/Rent - Sunshine Bicycle Center .

    I'm going to follow up with them during business hours but if anyone else has a line on the details or anywhere else it would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Sunshine is no longer a Turner dealer, owner said they couldn't compete with online sales.
    Your only bet now is to find a 5Spot owner. I have a Large 2012 in Santa Rosa I could let you try. Leave me with your sister as collateral.

    Thanks for the heads up and I appreciate the offer. Large is what I was looking to try. I'll coordinate with you on PM.

    Is Passion Trail Bikes in Belmont still a Turner Dealer? Maybe they could fit you or something?
    I like to ride bikes.

    Bought a used DW 5 spot rear triangle with rockers etc off ebay for $80 in december from what looked like a bike shop as all they sold were bikes parts, but was not sure. Spotted this thread, checked the paypal details, and sure enough, i now believe Sunshine Bicycle were clearing out the turner stuff that they had lying about. I was then lucky enough to get a front triangle for a similar price, and a whole frame was born :-)
