    Flux rear on spot?

    Anyone tried a 08 Flux rear on a 08 Spot front. And if so did it change the head tube angle?

    The Spot shown in this thread has a Flux rear:

    PM shootz, I'm sure he'd be happy to tell you more about it.

    My wife's 08 Spot has a Flux rear triangle on it. It never had a 5 Spot one, so I don't have a reference, but I know the chainstay is about an 1/8th of an in shorter. It is also about 0.35lbs lighter.

    Based on the info I got from the person who sold me the frame, the geometry was unaffected, with exception of the shorter chainstay, that is.

    Christina (DT's wife) was running a Flux rear on her 08 Spot. Not sure if there were any geometry changes.

    Not sure about 08, but I used to sell Turners extensively, and in the Horst Link years they shared the exact same rear end.

    Flux and Spot rear triangles were the same until (and including) 2006. In 2007 and 2008 the Spot and RFX shared a new asymmetric rear triangle. 2006 and 2007 Flux rear triangles are identical, but the 2008 Flux rear triangle changed to asymmetric design and lighter (ex-Nitrous rear triangle).
