    Stoked on the FLUX

    I have been riding a 5 spot for the last 2 years and man has it been a great bike.
    It climbs technical with ease and descends like a dream. The group of people I have been riding with have gone more race/xc and starting getting lighter bikes. So what the hell I built a flux to do the occasional race. Most of the trails in my area 4 inches is plenty.
    The first things I noticed were the lower BB and a bit longer top tube. It only took me a couple of rides to get used to the flux and than it was game on. This thing accelerates like a hardtail and turns so quick. It is a very responsive bike. I can stand up on steep climbs and the back tire stays planted. I will miss the spot but hopefully I can build another one some day a little beefier than my last version something that can handle the chunky stuff. But for now I will be on the flux tryng to get faster and hopefully enter a race
    and do well.

    Yummy! What does it weigh? 24-25 pounds? I need to figure out what light fork to put on a Flux here in the next week or two. I'm thinking Reba 115.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    I want that bike. If I it run it 1x9 with a similar spec it could be 22-something, especially since I'd get the 15" (interesting the 15" TT would be the same as my 17" Azure).
