    No Flux anymore?

    I was looking for some info on Turner site and discovered that the Flux is no longer offered, what is going on? does this mean a new Flux? maybe carbon? I only hope it's not 148.

    Since the Czar will not be revamped anytime soon....I'll keep an eye out for the Flux. Just don't lower the BB too much please...or at all. Will be interesting to see what they do to the carbon Flux.

    Actually, I was looking for the offset lower pin to raise the BB when I noticed the Flux was missing in the bikes list. A 5 mm higher BB would be a hit (at least in my list).

    So when is Turner going to let some info fly on the interwebbs? Like geometry and availability

    Looking forward to this new Flux. I expect I'll be ordering a Small for the wife as soon as they are available. Ready, Set, GO!

    I would have expected a carbon Sultan to come before a carbon Flux (I just got the impression - maybe wrong - that Turner sold more Sultans). I was told (by Turner) that a Sultan update was coming, but that it would be aluminum. Whatever comes, I'm hoping that Turner perhaps will offer both boost and 142 rears (like Ibis with Ripley). I won't be changing to boost anytime soon, but it is the future. Since so many folks seem to go frame only with a Turner, sticking with 142 right now makes sense (vs. buying a complete, where you get hubs etc.)

    A well sorted Sultan of any material would be a welcome addition.

    Would love love love to see a new Sultan released soon. I have been wanting to purchase a Turner for years, and hoping a Sultan redesign is closer to my Honzo than the previous. As my bike money will soon become baby money, I want to buy something that's good for the long haul and Turner seems to be that!

    Carbon Flux coming next year? Ooh...I may have to wait for this. Hopefully the BB will not be too low.

    Very excited about this!
    My '09 Flux is cracked and will probably not last for long.
    And the 5Spot is just too much bike for the everyday riding

    Looking forward to see information about geometry.

    the Sultan has all but disappeared from the turner site as well, only XL available. Does that mean a replacement soon?

    If they take some hints from the changes Santa Cruz made to the V2 5010 the new carbon Flux could be one hell of a bike, a mini-RFX trail ripper could easily be my next ride...

    Amdi, your Flux is cracked that means it is dead NOW. It can last no more. Done.

    Don't worry, here in Denmark we don't sue eachother, because of our own stupidity
    If i lived across the pond though, I would have it fixed already But the postage-prices can't justify that.

    Now go make us a geo-chart

    I would be sad if they copied SC. The flux is great as is. If you need slacker and more travel, buy a Burner.

    I think that a Flux 3.1 should have:
    1. stealth dropper routing
    2. Offset lower pivot standard.
    3. Larger head tube that allows for an angle set headset.
    4. 1x only with a wider/stiffer lower pivot.
    5. Carbon would be cool.
    6. No cable guides on the head tub, like Burner 3.1.

    Low and slack, quick and high, or what we have now, in between and near perfect for intended use. Carbon would be cool. Also, I do not like the cable guides on the head tube of the Burner 3.1. I have much better cable routes without pinning to the head tube.

    It will be fun to see what it turns out to be.

    In my e-mailings with DT, the new flux will be carbon and have shorter chain stays, but otherwise not changed. I think it is coming out next spring.

    I can take or leave carbon, but with shorter chainstays and plus compatible I would be a customer. Sad to see made in the USA frames fade away, though. Also, bushings. Turner had me sold on this concept.
    Vini vidi velo!
