Nice Spot. Do you happen to know what your head angle is with that fork? Thanks.
Probably about 68.5 unsagged. When sagged at 35% it feels good like it might be 68. My El Ciclon is 68 with the same fork. The Spot is a little steeper when unsagged but once in the saddle feels about the same. :thumbsup:

If it feels too steep on the trail I might try the Lyrik Solo Air with a 15mm (145mm travel) reducer to put it at 530 A/C. The Pike is 518. I'll know a lot more by tomorrow afternoon.

The yellow strips you see ARE the rubber seals. DT went to yellow just so folks could see them.

Sweet build!

I'm digging that pool/hot tub combo too! Enjoy and looking forward to your first ride impressions.

Iron Glimmer or Charcoal

to the OP - is that really iron glimmer gray or is it charcoal? the shot of the headtube seems to have a lot of glare as if there is a clearcoat. the custom color chart on the Turner site has the charcoal looking exactly like yours does.
speaking of, i didn't realize DT added so many more colors to the lineup.:thumbsup:

I believe it's Iron Glimmer with a gloss finish. The gloss finish makes it a custom color for 09. Iron Glimmer is available in matte as a standard option. I wasn't really diggin the matte finish. If DT is around maybe he can verify.

Matte Iron Glimmer

Hi, great colour. I prefer both the matte and gloss iron glimmer. I guess it comes down to personal preferences and money; especially in the UK where the Spots price has recently been increased from £1695 to £1795. For many thats the custom colour option out of the question.
