    We the people ... New Twin DW Flux's All Grown Up

    Back in June I posted pictures of our (my wife and I) new DW Flux Frames. I thought that I should share the build specs and pictures now that they have grown up. Both bikes were built very much the same with a few variations (shown in brackets) due to desire and parts availability:

    2009 Large Charcoal DW Flux (2009 Med. Granny Smith Green DW Flux)
    2010 Fox FIT 120 RLC 15QR Fork
    SRAM XO Twist Shift
    SRAM XO Rear Derailer
    SRAM X9 Front Derailer
    Mavic 2009 Crossmax ST Wheels
    Avid Elixir CR Disk Brakes
    Truvativ Noir 3.3 Team Crankset (Truvativ OCT Crankset)
    Truvativ Bottom Bracket
    Chris King Dreadset (Chris King Mango)
    Truvativ Stem
    Easton Monkey Lite Carbon Hi Rise (Azonic Carbon Hi Rise)
    Easton EC90 Carbon Seatpost
    WTB Devo SLT (Terry Butterfly Ti)
    Kenda Nevegal 2.10 (front)
    WTB Wolverine 2.20 (Rear)

    Once built, we left for a trip to Tahoe and Utah for several weeks and were able to spend some great saddle time in the mountains. We both LOVE the new Flux! I was coming from a Trek Top Fuel 9.9 Carbon and my wife, a Gary Fisher Sugar. I am preaching to the choir about the benefits over either of these previous bikes. Thanks to Noah at Competitive Cyclist for all of his help with the builds.

    Slowrider- I have so far resisted the pull of the scale. Now that I have a legitimate reason to weigh the bikes, I will and get back to you.

    Hope Sorry

    I didn't intend to pull you down the dark side of the trail, I'm considering my first 4" bike in many, many years and I'm looking at, among other things, how light real world builds are coming in at. Thanks for the help.

    Very Nice

    I'm also interested in your thoughts on the F120 for the Flux. A small Flux may be in my wife's future too.

    I have only been 50% succesful in my ability to weigh the bikes. The large (w/ older Time Atac pedals,bottle cage etc) weighed in at 26.6 lbs. I am still working on the medium. Sorry for the slow response .

    The 120 fork rides great. My wife especially likes it as she has more confidence on descents due to the somewhat more "relaxed" rider position. I doubt whether she will ever use all of the fork, but the portion that she does use is done with a bigger smile.
