    New RFX!!

    I just received the frame today. Everything else is off of my Yeti 575 (which I loved dearly for the 3 months I have owned it). I want to thank Krispy and Von over at Go-Ride as they were very helpful in making my decision, and their service is excellent.

    This is my first Turner and it was an easy choice as I ride with several guys that have 6-Packs, and one of them made the transition from a 575. I really liked the idea of a DHX coil for the DH and tech we have here in Phoenix.

    I have to say that I admire DT. I love the fact that he interacts with people on this board, and actually listens to what his customers have to say.

    Well, on to the good stuff.

    06 Medium Grey Anodized
    05 AM1
    King/819
    XTR crank/front and rear derailluers
    Juicy 7's 185 front and rear
    Thomson seatpost and stem
    Race Face Carbon bar

    I'll be hitting SOMO-National tomorrow to break it in right

    (Sorry for the poor pics, taken at night)

    HI I am moving to Phoenix and wondering if my flux has enough travel for the trails there. I am an aggresive xc rider.
    Thanks ED

    You'll love it here. You're Flux will excel at 90% of the trails here. There are only a few super technical trails that may make you wishing for more. PM me when you get here, we do group rides all of the time and would loe to have you along. We'll show you the ropes.

    it looks a bit gold in the pics. I think that should be an idea for the next Turner color. I love gold, kind of like the one used on 80's German cars.

    I think you'll like it a lot. I test rode a 575 at interbike and found it blew through the travel too quick for me. The rfx ramps up nicely and should inspire more confidence in big situations.

    I hear both of those guys have crazy skills. They are great guys who really helped me work through the whole TNT or HL issue. They know their stuff.
