    Question for David/Turner re:- custom 6 pack

    Turner / David,

    Simple question.

    Is it possible to buy a turner 6 pack frame and put a flux sized RP3 (1.5inch stroke) and flux linkage on it to get a chunky 4inch dual/jump/play bike with chain guide mounts?

    If so what would the final geometry if you ran a 4inch fork out front ie head angle, bb height etc.

    Thanks

    -Matt

    Prob. respond quicker with e-mail. The BB would be crazy low.

    I have but i thought i would get other peoples input into the idea by posting it here as well.

    The 6 pack bb is 14.25 and the flux is 12.8 which is about what you want for a dual bike. And by dropping the front and rear by 2 inches the head angle of 68 degrees on the 6 pack "should" be able to be maintained around there somewhere.

    jump

    Last winter I was playing around with many different combos of frames and rockers and shocks trying to find something that would work so I did not have to build totally custom team SXR bikes. I cannot remember if I tried that exact combo but I tried all I could think of and nothing even came close. Not even a little bit. The seat tube pivots are not all the same distance from the main pivot and the lower shock mounts are not all the same either.
