    Sweet looking ride, mailkiko!

    White always looks good on the RFX not sure why, I always like em, like ya thinking, whats ya full specc, have ya added to the RFX data base?


    Just an observation, lower your stem if ya not already thinking about it, one the RFX will handle way better, corner, be more stable, jump with more control, climb better, but in relation to that size frame and ya seat height it will be allot comfortable in general..

    Enjoy ta

    Are you running some custom short-fork / short-shock options or is it just my eyes?

    TALAS locked down to 100. Look at the position of the blue lever on the left crown.

    My guess anyway.

    Not a guess. That's exactly what it is. Can't tell about the shock, but the fork is a talas 36 for sure.

    It looks like that bike has a halo.

    Yeah, it looks a bit weird in the pic.... That was my first ride, and was playing with the many different fork/shock adjustments.

    Looks kinda like a flux as it sits...

    As far as the bars/stem....new stem/bars weren't in yet, so that's how i ran it, low rise bars, so i raised the stem. I like tall bars, especially for jumping, it's all preference, we're all different...

    Nice rfx!
    I can't believe the difference...it would take a page or two...

    The RFX is lighter than my TEAM was, and rides way more XC like if you want it too... It also has the ability to be SUPER plush, and seems really stiff at the same time!!!

    Knowing what i know now, i would have gotten an RFX a lot sooner....

    Nope, it's a talas 36 set at 100mm, as the guy below stated.... Rear shock is factory, running in pro pedal mode. Weirdest thing about the frame when i got it was that it looks like a 4" frame in the rear, but is super plush...though stiffer than my old burner by far. Kudos to Dave and his peeps on this frame!!!h

    yeah it does. color plays funny tricks on the eye. the super low and giantly large seat may also help create the illusion.

    It's a medium...does look small when seat is down a bit. Turner's sizes have always been a draw for me, as i like low slung bikes.
