    Yeah, I was hoping to find a 2013 close out at my (semi) local Turner dealer the other day for CHEAP. No dice. The shop guy said they were all snapped up months ago. I thought 26ers were out.

    Wow, that's kinda sad. I'm still in love with my 5 Spot. Hope DT keeps some spares around for it.

    When I visited Turner last month, I think they said they hadn't sold a Spot in months.

    I guess they need the space on the webpage for when the Mach6 killing 6Spot comes out

    Farewell to 26ers though.

    There are about 25 5 Spots left, just too few to take up the space or time in the new web site. The last of the 5 Spots are on sale, just call or email with size request.

    I guess the burner is doing everything and more than the spot has been doing.

    I demoed a Flux and a Burner a few weeks back. The Burner I think is more what the RFX used to be and the Flux is definitely what my Spot is as far as a trail bike. I've owned a Spot for many years now and can say that with the larger wheels a Flux with less travel is a better trail bike then my Spot. I apologize to Turner for not typing this up sooner, a full report will be coming. However, bottom line. Based on the roots, rocks, and technical trail riding I like to do here, the new Flux with its larger wheels, lighter weight out climbs, descends and just rides better than my 2007 Spot with HL rear and 27.5 with Magura Thor.

    Thanks TurnerBikes for a great 10 year run on what has become a classic bike. Many happy trails were ridden with my 03 and then 08 Spots. Still rocking the RFX.

    Interesting. After the this little chat goes up, only 1 person contacted us today to buy one of the closeout 5 Spots. You guys might be shedding a tear for the past, but no one actually wants to buy a piece of it. Oh sure. 2 stroke motocross bikes and 57 Chevy's have their place, but it is a pretty small place. RIP 26" trail bike.

    yes DT you are right, it would seem the days of the 26" are waining. hopefully in the future the spot name can be resurrected in different form. shame the burner wasn't named the Spot 27.5, the Burner is a great name and great bike, love mine
    who knows, the Burner was resurrected maybe one day the Spot will as well. I also really liked mine over the years, 08, 09, and 11. The Burner for me now does what the Spot did for me just better.

    This gave me all the reasons why I should keep my 5spot. Its a classic. And since its no longer in production, we owners should feel privileged we own one ready to shred some trails! Im keeping this to "my royce can attract more chicks than your ferrari brah!"

    Sounds like there's no incentive to upgrade at all here, as they've got 24 bikes worth of spare parts.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    Hodge, the only reason we added WB is that many riders ask. Instead of buying a bike that fits they would rather guess what it will ride like based on wheelbase, and this analysis based on the wheel base of a different brand model, and NOW, wheel size bike! But, instead explaining the bike should fit first we decided to provide the info the riders want and let them buy based on the numbers they think are applicable.

    Hi Dave,

    If you have a spare large triangle from 2011 onwards I would be interested in upgrading..

    I had a total of 4 Five Spots, H-Link, TNT and 2x DW. Getting my first spot was an absolute game changer for me. It was the first suspension bike that did not feel like a noodle to me.

    I now have a Sultan. Maybe I have to add a Burner at some point.

    I have a two-stroke motorcycle still........and a 26" wheeled bike

    Wouldn't mind having a 2012 Spot as back-up/2nd bike..... but it would have to be discounted deeply to steer me away from the flux or Czar or similar bigger wheeled siren. Se' la vi
