    ... and if we just ... Snob and Poseur in the house

    Do I qualify yet? Just added Flux to Spot.

    I was looking for XC rig for a while since my spot became a 5" FR machine... I was thinking of something cheaper like a Stumpy, but then one late nite I saw her on ebay with half an hour left on the bid... man, talk about impulse shopping, before I new it I was the proud owner of a flux. Here she is, built up from mostly from stuff I had laying around.

    First impressions. The first thing that sorta surprised me is what a beautiful looking bike she really is, somehow all the photos just don't do her justice. Second is the ride itself... even with skinny tires and fork set a 4 inches she feels a lot more Trail than XC. Feels like a lighter and faster spot not like a XC machine at all - in a good way. Even the few little drops I've taken so far the landings are super plush. Very nice.

    Very nice. Funny how things work out. I'm very interested to see how it compairs to the Spot. I have a Spot and an RFX. I have often thought of selling the Spot for a Flux.

    You mean my turner museum? I emptied out half of my work room/office; just hardwood floors, white walls and 2 turners. Ahhh.
