    This is a good bike. I just did a full day demo of a new Chilcotin and while the Knolly is brilliantly good, the 5 Spot is close enough that i don't have to have a new Chilli just yet.

    My five 5 Spots over the years:

    Spot #1 - a 2006 TNT





    Spot #2 - a 2008 TNT




    Spot #3 - a 2006 TNT




    Spot #4 - a 2009 DW link




    Spot #5 - a 2010 DW link







    Plus a few action shots... who needs an RFX when the Spot is so capable?

    Whistler




    Moab




    Fruita




    Morzine






    Turner 5 Spot = Pure Bliss!

    I got the Green TNT in there too on the subscription page. They ran this for a few months. This was shot on one of my local trails at the time and I loved drifting this corner:

    Is this the left line on the Lower Body Bag just before the impossible wash climb out?

    Thanks!

    This is at the bottom of Porc. I was looking at doing this and there were a bunch of guys at the bottom telling me jokingly that it's easy and they all did it. I said OK and rolled it! It wasn't that bad.

    Here is the original moab trip thread, it was my first post to the Turner Forum.

    Looks like Jackass Canyon using the "I wouldn't even consider that line if I was using your bike and your body" line. Good job SS. I've never even seen anyone try that line...

    thanks. enjoying the setup as well. never had a chance to weigh it out yet but guessing around 28-29 lbs. feels plenty lighter though.

    they are definitely lookers. we'll see about the longevity though. my last wheelset (hadley hubs laced to mavic 823) were absolutely bombproof. i miss the sound of the freewheel on those as well.

    Yes. It's about a 3.5 to 4 foot off-camber near vertical roller with a 3 inch line to hit or you OTB into that rock on his right.
