    New question here. Flux Owners --

    Any of you not happy with anything about your Flux??

    --I'm thinking about adding one to my stable soon, and please, let's not speculate about TNT just yet. Just impressions of what you already ride.

    thnx!

    Flux love here. It is a fantastic ride, fast and light but can still make me think I am on a longer travel bike when the going gets rough.

    so true cow. 2 weeks ago i did a weenie little 1.5 mile d/h race on mine. it wasnt much to get excited about, a few ultra sharp corners and some long low air but nuthin too techy. it was, however, very friggin fast and over tons of roots and some baby heads all in soft off camber soil. this bike rocked!

    last week i took her down some stairs and muddy 1 track. same deal. this thing kicks every high expectation i had square in the nads and shows me more is there waiting for me to catch up to it. amazing ride.

    this is now my 2nd turner and i may own a 3rd in the next 2 or 3 months. david says pack, i wanted a spot but hes pretty convincing.

    The next thing you know, everyone will be doing it and Cactuscorn will be sending them his own "special spatula" stickers .

    I do like the older stickers better though. I wasn't riding his bike last week, but it sure looked like it was working really really well for him, especially the enormous amount of mud clearance. That was some nasty crap, still picking it out of the nooks and crannies on the Burner man, but a great ride any how.

    happy trails...

    I'm workin on it, I'm workin on it. You gotta e me those pics, my dad doesn't believe me about that stuff. Can't believe you got more rain, and here my only excuse is this bloody cold.

    I'll stop hijacking this thread now, and back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    happy trails...

    I'm getting tired of my Flux screaming at me, "Faster b!tch! FASTER!"

    That was my impression when I demo'ed one awhile back. I ended up choosing a spot because it felt so different (and good!) to me...something I could grow in to.
    However, I keep catching myself wishing I was on a Flux from time to time..
    I really like the spot and have a lot to learn from it, but too often I wish I was just making better time. I suspect I'll add a Flux to the line up before too long, then when I want to ride, I can 'choose my weapon', so to speak.

    Thanks for all the POSITIVE posts! Keep them coming!

    No. I even dig the stickers.

    What's not to like about the love child of the Nitrous and 5 Spot? It's equally at home racing or trail riding- by far the fastest all around bike I have ridden. The Turner 29"er could very well claim that crown once it arrives, but it won't be easy surpassing the standard set by the Flux.

    I'm lucky enough to also have a 5 Spot (with a completely different set up), and like being able to choose between the two based on which trails I'm riding and how I feel on a particular day.

    Good job!

    The Flux is awesome. It has exceeded my expectations. The suspension is responsive to the terrain, its quick and light. It handles wonderfully on the "ups" and "downs". Great in the curves and corners. I have had no issues with this bike.

    I've been riding mine right at a year now, and still can't believe how much I enjoy it every time I go for a ride. Best I've ever had!

    All positive!

    (except for the recent 'carnage') Everyone sounds VERY happy w/ their Flux.

    Now if I can just get this car sold, I can place my order...

    some positive comments

    Great to hear positive comments about a Turner product. At one time it was always positive, then this whole TNT controversy made it look like the Turner line was going down the tubes. I cannot believe any Turner product is going to be less than well built, finely crafted and great riding. The difference between a good bike and a great bike is in how well the particular bike is crafted and DT has that part down.

    thnx!
    I Have one of the demo Fluxes from last year and it has been absolutely the bike I wanted it to be. It is just as fast uphill as the Stinger it replaces and is a smokin' descender for a 4" XC racer/light trailbike. The frame and RP3 have been faultless. I enjoy just looking at it as a piece of mechanical art when it's hanging on its rack at home. If you have owned another Turner in the past, you'll take to a Flux immediately. I don't know the secret sauce that DT puts into his frames, but it's so easy to hop off of one and get on another and feel immediately at home. At the Interbike Demo, I went from a Nitrous to a Flux to a Spot and they all felt familiar and comfortable from the get-go. It's amazing.

    Spot Stickers

    Yup, I got them on the Turner store. Unfortunately the other side did not quite end up as straight as this one but it kicks a$$.

    Cactuscorn: are you running a Float 130?
