    need another bike

    I need another bike, and Im thinking 5 spot. Again. What do you guys think I have to pay for one?? 04 or 05 are good. I think xl, but I think I remember when I rode Bikezillas red one, it was a large, and that seemed ok.

    Dude, you gotta wait for the 07. The "Hoisy" Link was admittedly nice but also slightly overrated for what it was. The 2007 will have a stiffer rear triangle and a higher BB. How can you go wrong? Heck, it even pedals better.

    Sorry for the hijack Tony. I would look for something a little longer legged than a Flux. I would bet that both bikes (Lenz and Flux) are cut out to handle very similar terrain. As for size, unless the Lenz feels to streched out, I would stick with an XL in the Turner. I found the fit of my old XL 5-Spot to be VERY similar to my XL Leviathan.

    Tony if it's going to be a Spot get an XL. Dropping two sizes won't be pleasant. I'd get an XL myself at this point.
    Have you thought about the Sultan? I hear niners are especially sweet for us tall folk.

    Skip the flux... you know our trails, in the back of your mind you'll always want more travel. Hell I can't seem to stop riding my RFX.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    I ride the lenz 4 days a week. Its an amazing bike..I got some i9 wheels for it, amd I think its perhaps the best bike Ive ever ridden.( I've been putting in 6 hours every Sunday on it). That said, my 15yo is riding now (completely obsessed), and he took my Joker, so I put a nixon on my Intense Uzzi VPX and Ive been riding that in Sprain (technical, rollers, jumps, ect), but its kinda heavy. Plus, I need a more versatile bike so when one of the others break, we still have something we can ride anywhere. Id consider the Sultan..does it compare to the 5 spot in terms of ability? (my son likes to jump).Does anyone have an xl 5 spot they would like to sell, or anything like it? Im on a budget.
    Thanks for the advice, guys.

    I am the Satchsquatch guy. I loved the way it rode, but the top tube was just too long, which is why I have sizing questions.
