    Got a Spot, now a Flux too.....good deal?

    Asked recently about how big a difference there is between a Spot and a Flux and taken the plunge.

    I bought this Flux on ebay. Good deal or bum deal?

    Coming over from Scotland to ride Cycle Oregon in Sept then spent a week or ten days riding from Bend Or. Visiting friends in Marin on the way home so may do some riding there too. Roll on September.

    Looks like a pretty good deal to me. I'd lose the alligator on the handlebars though.

    First thing for the chop! Then the hook. Apparently its there to tow flagging adventure racers. Hope its not an omen.

    Smokin' deal....better grab it before someone else does. If I didn't have "plans" I'd be very tempted.

    Good deal. I saw that and was tempted to buy it myself even though I already have a Flux.

    Send me the alligator. I like it.

    Naaa. What sucks far worse is when a reseller has a manufacturer drop-ship a product to you, and the original invoice is included that shows you just how much mark-up they made for a few minutes of work.

    wow I've always wondered what the EP prices were.

    $100 off an X0 rear derailleur, sweet!!!

    I have to make sure my sons summer jobs are at bike stores. Daddy needs hookups.

    To the OP, thats a great deal on a bike that looks like it didn't see much use at all.

    Beware of what you ask for. I spend 10x as much on bike stuff than if I didn't have the shop job. I have a whole lotta blingy parts, but I'm not sure if I'm a better rider.

    That sounds like the voice of experience, especially given that your name is 2TurnersNotEnough.
