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.
