    Quick question..

    I've been saving/looking for my 5-spot for a long while now and I'm getting pretty close. I noticed this auction and was wondering how much is to much to bid on it?

    Also, are there any drawbacks to buying a used Turner??

    I bought my 5 Spot and my wife's XCE used. I don't think I'd ever pay over $1200 for a Spot, maybe $1300 but it'd have to be in absolutely mint condition. I also won't buy a used bike frame without being able to talk to the seller over the phone. Ask plenty of questions and get a ton of pictures, particularly of any damaged areas.

    That thing looks nice. I'd buy it for $2600 but probably no more. Turner is selling the demo bikes for another $600 with some nicer parts and you know they are in great shape and come with a full warranty.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    I figured that most if not all of the demo bikes would be gone by this point. I cannot get the turner page to load, do you happen to know who I could contact about the demo frames?
