    Sob, no closeout small Spots?!

    Seems more folks in the homer world are taller than 5'6". I've seen some decent deals on med Spots, but no one has smalls for closeout prices.

    Just a rant. I'm just not ready to spend $2500 on a frame. I'll wait for used or a closeout price. When I do get this Spot, this will be my 5th Turner.

    IF anyone happens to know where there is a small, please let me know.

    sorry man,
    but at Turner there is no room for little dudes like us!
    I have the same problem finding a small Sultan.
    btw I think i sew a small Spot on Ebay (complete bike) for a good price.
    good luck

    It's the exact opposite; there are more small people by percentage of frames made in given size, than medium. Seems like Turner over-produced Mediums in the 5 Spot and couldn't find any behemoths for the upper sizes.

    If you want a small, closeout frame, just pick up that Flux:

    Exactly. Keep checking the classifieds. You missed a good one a couple weeks ago:

    OH, Bummah. I missed out on your frame, Marshall. Shoot, I would have grabbed it. I love that green too.

    Thanks, MK, but I dont need a Flux. Already have a TNT version.

    Thanks edgerat. I saw that one too on ebay. I only need a frame and this guys complete price is too high.

    Keep 'em coming boys. hmm, or maybe I should hold out for the RFX. But since it'll be new and just out, i'd have to pay full price. No thanks. cant afford that. so maybe a spot is still the way to go and keep searching for that used Small.

    hmm, but then again. do i really, really need yet another bike. i have a sweet burly built RFX and a lightweight good climbing Flux. i've had an RFX back in 98, Horst Spot in '05. Another bike? hmmmmmm.....

    When we got Barny's small Spot I think I recall DT saying that the Asian market had just hoovered up the remaining stock of small sizes. No stock usually equals no closeout deals. Small frames certainly can be hard to find, but they do pop up. It's worth the wait and effort.

    Nice Spot. "See Spot run, the yellow dog."

    What travel is the fork set at. The HA seems steep, at least from the pic.

    That dog hunts.

    The fork in the photo is a fox 140, switched to a 150 later on. The 150 is a better match for the Spot, imo.
