    Flux reasons for non-biking people

    Hi everybody (i always feel the need to say then: "Hi Dr Nick!),

    Once upon a time ( as in now ) there was a Little Mr C who lived in a kingdom far, far away ( we still call it Belgium ).
    I'might be new to this forum, But i finally really going to test for a longer time the Turner Flux. I was blown away the last and almost only time i rode the bike
    But now i have a Huge problem: Could you guys give me
    a) reasonable reasons
    b) hilarious reasons
    c) financial convincing reasons
    d) a baseball-bat
    to counter all the BS i'll get from my girlfriend/family....

    Could be interesting for other guys also....

    "groeten" from Belgium

    Mr C

    I'll give you a really easy one,

    BECAUSE I WANT IT.

    Your not married, get what the heck you want if you can afford it. Biking is a great sport that will keep you healthy.
    Riding slowly since 1977.

    nicely played cdmc!

    welcome to the show mr c. you want a flux because its gonna be hard to find a better workin bike thats better made, better supported with better people providin better cs. its 1 of those buy it once items cuz it doesnt break or need tons of care. just build it and ride the snot outta it in any conditions ya choose. its a long term investment unlike so many other offerings in the same range, be it price or intent.
    No, I'm NOT back!

    C) Financial reasons:

    Just tell your girlfriend that it only cost you 350 EU (about $500 US). Works every time.

    Maybe I can convince my LBS it only costs € 350... Long time investment is a good one, the way stock markets are acting crazy today...

    turners last. i still ride my '96 burner and just put in my 3rd set of bushings last year. thats called longevity. could be why ive bought 5 of em and have plans for 2 more in the foreseeable future.

    the flux is by far the most fun ive had on a xc bike.

    ps: i love belgian amber ale and my '88 merckx.
