    Same here. Bought my 2015 Flux frame and built it up. Still going strong.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    Many guys in Turner country (SoCal) ride their Turners for many years. Old veterans that don't feel a need to replace their bikes every other year know that Turner is the brand to get. Your 2015 Flux is like a diesel engine with 50,000 miles (not even broken-in yet)
    A lot of guys in my area (Coachella Valley) ride Turners that are close to a decade old. My LBS always seems to have an old Turner or two in for non-frame parts. I rode my 2007 TNT Flux until the end of 2016, when I replaced it with the latest version. We'll see if the carbon fiber lasts as long. My buddies that ride some of the early carbon fiber Turners have had no issues.

    We're all riding old Turners because Turner has been a little slow on product release. I would love to spend moving on a new carbon Flux but no XL will be released at this time. I will keep riding my 2014 Flux until it breaks or I die

    I didnít realize my Burner was old, just upgraded from a 3.0 to 3.1. Now if I could upgrade the rider.

    I'm still using my 5 spot and sultan, but replacing the bushings and worn lower links is $$$. Has anyone figured out how to seal the dirt out of the lower links better than the cheesy square rings Turner sells? I've been thinking of looking on McMaster for some Viton o-rings that would be thicker, but haven't measured the size yet.

    The only thing I've found to help is to minimize the grease...just disassemble, clean, and put a thin layer of grease occasionally. Here in WI, the grease attracts sand and I can wear out the thrust surfaces in just a few rides.
    whatever...
