    Anyone got a new 650b 120mm DW Flux yet??

    This sounds like the perfect bike to replace both my DW Flux & DW 5 Spot!!

    Looking forward to some feedback!

    Yes, and loving it!!! It feels more like the DW Spot with a bigger wheel advantage and still pedals much faster than the 26" Flux. I have also spent a lot of time on a Czar but the new Flux has a more playful feel to me, which kind of makes it more fun.

    Please share!! Pics & specs.
    Still saving to make the switch, but, after a lot of research, my 650b will be a Flux, replacing a 2005 Flux.

    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    Kinda wish I'd known this bike was coming. Don't get me wrong-I like my new Burner very much, but this bike would be a better fit for most of my riding, I think...

    Why does Turner insist on leading with photos of the funkiest sized bikes? Let's see a medium or a large.

    just trying to help, everyone else must be to busy riding.

    I still think he should have used 650b wheels instead of 27.5

    You call that HELP!?!?!?! j/k as I was in my previous post.

    We really need a thread outlining the performance differences between 27.5 and 650b

    Every 27.5 thread should include this important information! The consumers are being misinformed by the marketing machines at the industry giants like Turner.

    I'm waiting to see a nice burly build.

    Subscribed to the 'thread' that is MrEP. My 2010 Flux is still going strong as my commuter/ weekday afterwork trail slayer, but I see the new flux in my future.

    Or at least a thread on how to replace that sidewall text "650B" on your Schwalbe tyres with "27.5"

    Really torn between this and the Czar and the Solo for my "complement" bike to my AM/FR Chili.

    I thinks as far as looks go I'd rank them Czar (dam sexy looking bike), Solo, and Flux (looks kinda disjointed and funky... maybe it's just the size smallness).

    Can't wait to ride them all at Interbike and/or Outerbike.

    Edit: Here's a little better picture of the Flux in a "proper" size . I guess it's not so bad.

    Looks like this will be one of the most highly anticipated Interbike demo days ever, ditto for worlds DH. Hopefully we will finely able to say it is the bike, not the rider
