    Waiting for new 5 Spot Stock?

    Mr Turner please hurry up & send the new shipment of 5 Spots to Silverfish, as I want my new bike in time for a Glentress Trip mid April!

    Silverfish said they should get stock around mid April, how do Turner ship then over? By Container ship I would imagine.

    If you really want one now and at a great price... A dutch guy is selling his 2009 one that looks great and hasn't been ridden that much.

    Thanks! but my insurance company are getting me the frame & they deal direct with Silverfish, have tried to get then to source it elsewhere with no joy. So really frustrated having to wait so long.

    3 Weeks so far, could of had an Intense, Mondraker or Yeti as the Turner is my dream back though I would hang on until mid April when the stock was due in, now its going to be even longer and I have no bike to ride other than my roadie, having to hire one for Glentress this weekend.

    3 weeks! thats not much of a wait. i know the sun* has been shining and it's frustrating waiting without a bike to ride. i sold my bike 2 weeks ago thinking my bike would be here by now. end of the month is only 2 weeks away. i'm sure it will be worth the wait.

    where in the uk do you ride?

    I know its not that long but I am missing some good rides with my riding buddies, its actually been a month not 3 weeks without a bike, hope the wait is worth it. I ride North Wales mainly, lots of natural rides & all of the trail Centres, also get away when I can lakes, South Wales & Scotland, off to Glentress and Innerleithen this weekend
