    Nice!

    That's about a pound lighter than my large '05 (according to my bathroom scale...)
    I guess I didn't do too bad.

    Mine's not orange, though...except for the headset

    Nicely done guys! That is a great, solid build. With the new XTR, that may be the World's Most Expensive Flux

    Guess the new XTR is pretty light after all . . . .

    My XL Flux comes in at 26.5# (had to reweigh) so you got me beat!
    Love the orange ano.

    ahh yes. the new proto black head badge! head about that but didnt expect to see it so soon. nice!

    and the bike rocks too! my fave was to toss a few bearings in the tubes. what a wacked noise it makes as ya come to a stop. hell never figure it out. by the way, sure would be nice of ya to pony up with the damn build spec jarett! maybe a full shot while yer at it. dont make me whip out a poopy head award.
    No, I'm NOT back!

    Im at 25.5 with my Flux.

    I think the Marta SLs really made the diff. Im running the DT 4.2s and Nevegals, both not the lightest.

    Is the 2007 XTR really good? How about that nice new badge. Will I have that with my 2007 5.5 Spot?

    Thanks!!!

    Very nice FLUX!

    the word i got is the black stainless badge might, might be used on lighter colored frames in '07. the new silver will be standard on darker colors.

    XTR on an employee bike? You guys are doing too well. Start sending out the Christmas rebate checks now! Just kidding. Sweet bike. Does new XTR allow for a bash guard setup? I hardly ever run one, but it's a nice option to have.

    yes '07 XTR uses standard XT & Saint bashguards and it's called employee purchase program, and is the reason 75% of shop people work in shops, cuz it's not the pay

    Jratt - may i ask what travel fork you're running there? looks like 2007 float but with more than 100mm. i know they are internally adjustable to 120 (+140 of course) so interested to know how it performs at what looks to be 120mm. cheers

    funny enough, those saddles are supposed to be made available through turner or 1 of its distributors in the weeks to come. if i heard a date ive forgotten. i can tell ya the larger fr saddle is comfy, even with cromo rails vs ti. made by velo for turner by the way.
