    I've often wondered... (Flux and Sultan content)

    ...where the Sultan sits in the Turner range. I know the 5 Spot is the do-it-all trail bike and the Flux is the lighter, faster XC bike, but where does the Sultan sit? I thought that 29er wheels kinda give you like an inch of virtual suspension, and as the Sultan has 4 inch of bounce, does that mean it acts more like a 5 Spot? Also it's almost the same weight as a Spot and heavier than the Flux?

    Any thoughts?

    Sultan fills that DHR-Nitrous crossover niche

    At the risk of giving a response that actually provides useful, non-sarcastic input -- and hence being immediately banned from the Turner forum -- I would say the Sultan sits between the Spot and the Flux.

    However, having owned both a Spot and Sultan, I can't think of a single place where the Spot is superior to the Sultan.

    Though the guy who builds these things thinks exactly the opposite!
    Whining is not a strategy.

    Don't even get him started on the RFX vs. the Sultan.

    Unacceptable. You will not be banned, however, it will be worse: you will be given a time out. Go over there and sit by Fo.
