    That's not even broken in yet. I ride a Flux that is 2 1/2 times that old.

    A buddy is still riding this HL Spot I rode for about 7 years. Same components too, except for saddle and pedals.

    Still ripping it on my 2011/2012 hybrid (upgraded the rear triangle to 2012 for TA compatibility)

    One of the great things about Turner frames is that they are designed to last a long time. Not intended to force you to replace every couple years.

    That is the good and the bad of a Turner frame.
    The old frames still work very well and for me I have no need to upgrade yet......sorry Dave!

    Had my older RFX 00' out for a day of riding last weekend........awesome day!

    Love my 5 spot. Its actually my sons bike now and i have an RFX. 2 completely different beasts but both are amazing.

    Saying that i really need a rebuilt kit for some loose pivots.

    No reason to change, no plan to change. 2012 5 Spot. That said I really miss my old Intense 5.5 with a 69* HA, that thing was an animal that would bite you if you didn't respect it. Total whippet. May try to dig one of those up, it'd compliment the 5 Spot well.

    My 5spot is going strong too since 2011 but now I have problems with rockers. I have done a full rebuild but the bush bearings in the Rocker Tip Pivot still move left and right. Has someone changed the rockers? Where can I find them?

    Sounds like your bushing is a hair too long and allowing the rocker to move side-to-side? If so just sand down a tiny bit from the side of the bushing.
