    it is a pushed tuned rock shox monarch plus RC3, been thinking of sending in my 2014 fox 34 since I am due for a service on my shock, looking at the elite tune, maybe next rainy week.......P.S shock transformed the rear of this bike, perfect!

    5 Spot Photo Thread [o]-dsc00915.jpgI still own a first year 5 Spot but a freind of mine is riding it right now. I went everywhere with that bike and had a great time everywhere.

    I purchased a cane creek inline for my spot last summer, made it feel like a component new bike.... Amazing upgrade.

    Well, I added a 1.5 Works headset to my '13 Spot, and I have to say this brought my already amazing bike to another level!!! I have a 160 Lyrik u-turn, and I drop the fork down to 140mm for the climbs (I can barely notice a difference), and when it's time to go down, bring the fork to 160 and......... WOW!!!!
    Thanks DT and thanks Works!!

    thinking about driving over to turner and picking one of those up, had the monarch since beginning of 2011 and have been curious to see if It would outperform the pushed monarch???? any thoughts from anyone.......

    You probally can get a CC Inline significantly cheaper with Bike Bob, think Turner sells the shock at MSRP.
    I've been using a DB air since 2012, took a while to tune it, but once set up its pretty darn near a coil. I have had a Pushed Monarch Plus (nice shock), the properly tuned CC beats it all day and twice on Sunday. Can only imagine the Inline has the same performance sans the weight.

    Cheers,

    Turner don't have stock at the moment and appear to be having difficulty obtaining supplies from Cane Creek. I ordered a Burner frame with the CCDB inline upgrade direct from Turner 2 months ago, and emailed Tom a couple of days ago to find out what the delay in shipping is - I was told it's because they are still waiting for delivery of the shocks.

    His website is out of date. Email him, he is pretty good about getting back to you. He is legit, I've bought CCDBA, KS LEV, and Pikes from him.

    Have any of you guys had this happen?

    I only noticed it after washing my bike. It appears I have bottomed out.

    sort of, I have a bit of paint rubbed off there, not a dent thoug. I noticed it on the last washing too, my DW link bushings had quite a bit of slop in them too, could be related? how are your pivots?
    My bike MCA kinda climbs like a billy-goat. WOO WOO!

    My pivots cycle as they should and none of them feel sloppy. My little XC 28H DT swiss 350 wheels should look like tacos with that much frame flex though. I would also suspect bottom out damage from my shock but it seems fine! It is more like a crease then a dent.

    From a recent Arizona road trip. No complaints about this bike especially now that I put on the 1 piece link which made the suspension a lot better.
    whatever...

    So, the 1 piece link really helps?

    Sorry, didn't log in for a while. I found the 1pc link to be a huge improvement. Had no idea how floppy the old link was until I switched it. Mostly the back end is a lot stiffer on corners.
    whatever...

    Started out as Sangria Red, stripped off the PC to raw, then eventually got tired of it. Off to a new color again:

    No real feedback on the shock yet, except it works fine for some easy local trails. More feedback after it is ridden (by my brother) in the SOC Enduro next week

    One that says "Yeti"?



    IMO black would work best with the rest of the bike.

    Here's my 2010 Spot. It started out life sangria coloured, the finish was looking sorry for itself so had it powdercoated in yellow plus new decals. Recently rebuilt the suspension too including the revised DW link. Would have liked a new Burner, but decided to spend ££ on this instead.

    I finally traded my Spot to a new Burner a month ago. Found the Burner offers much more downhill prowness. Problem is I also want the RFX now!
