    5 Spot Photo Thread [o]

    Here is my original four bar 5 spot still going strong here in Scotland.
    I take it out for nostalgia trips, and it still proves to be very capable.

    Yeah. Normally the start of a big descent, but greasy as hell in that picture. A large cliff on the right makes things very interesting too.

    Rains have let up this weekend in the Philippines so I was finally able to squeeze some ride time.

    Trying out a Pushed RT3 and a Lyrik RC2 DH Solo Air after using coil on the back and front for the past 2 years.

    I admit it really feels weird and I miss the soft-as-a-cloud feeling of the coil shock compared to the RT3 (which feels a bit stiff). The RC2 DH fork is a pretty good air fork though, and I appreciate the weight savings as well.

    Just got my 2010 5 Spot back from warranty repairs -- small cracks in the upper taco weld. The guys at Turner did a fantastic job -- a full restore. New everything, and my requested fabulous orange and blue paint job, our SoCal HS MTB league colors. I had a new fork and wheels waiting for it when it finally came back, and have been pounding the trails ever since, in the Sierras and the San Gabriel mts. I like the Rev 150 XX fork -- lowers nicely for the long long climbs we have here, and it adjusts easily from hard to plush. Maybe too a bit too linear in the plush mode for some of the more techy bits, though.

    Loving it!!!

    First shot was taken on the Middle Sam Merrill trail, looking down into a foggy LA Basin, with the Mt. Lowe trail below. Second was taken in Rock Creek Canyon, rolling into Paradise CA.

    Sam Merrill is great trail to ride. I usually stop at the same spot to check out the view. Hope you rode up to ride Sunset ridge and el prieto while you're up there. Awesome colors on your bike. Happy trails.....

    Sunset and El Prieto -- absolutely. I have serious sweat equity on El Pee, working with the Friends Of, Banner in particular.

    Thanks for the good words -- so glad to have this bike back. Spent time on my rigid and other bikes while it was away, it's good to have the comparison, but better to be on the best of them.

    Nice Ride Bro,
    Trails dirt seems great to ride and not to muddy ;-)

    Hey bro.mikkosan....what is the original tune of your RT3? how fast was the turn around to have it pushed? can I know where you bought the RT3? thanks

    Nice. Love all the Pics of the 5-Spot! I wonder when someone will buy a Burner rear end and stick it on the Spot. I know Turner is against it but I bet it works. Not ideal but I bet it will work.
