    Rebuild program

    Has anyone done this? I just picked up a 2005 Flux and would like it refinished and new bushings. so for $275 it sounds like a pretty good deal for powder coat, new bushings and decals.

    just wondering if anyone has first hand experience .

    Unless you're jonesin' for a new paint job, it is doubtful you need new bushings. This is per DT. I called last year to ask about my '04 spot, and the man himself answered the phone. Told me what to check, but that he would be surprised if they actually needed replacing. Yeah, the paint job is beat to hell, but with a good lube still rides great.
    I once corrected DW about a bicycle related topic.

    I did--I sent them a Sultan TNT for the royal treatment. Turner did a great job and I was totally satisfied.

    I sent my '04 5-Spot back and it came back looking like a new bike. Good deal for sure.

    Yeah, that sounds about right. I think it might have been a month.
