Very nice Fanman, welcome to Homerdom. IMO, Flux brings more smiles per miles than most other horses, enjoy.

That festive red kit looks fast and race worthy. Don't dismiss the gnar, Flux with knobbies will handle tech that many only will tackle with 5-6" bikes.

Thanks. I hope so, that's exactly the reason I bought a Flux. My previous bike was a Speci Epic... not so "Specialized" for those circumstances....

Flux also replaced my Specy Epic SWorks, which I loved. Flux is easily as quick and pedals as well, yet is much more stiff. The other major added benefit, is that you can tune your Flux RP23 and fork to more sag and add knobby rubber, and it'll tackle tech without flinching (no big airs or gravity but AM works well). The Specy would get nervous in the gnar. Some others even lace up a 120mm fork for trail riding and drop back to the 100mm for events. Take the time to tweak your suspension and you'll never look back.

Thanks for the tip. Today I made the first real test ride and I really enjoyed the bike. Only as you said, the shocks settings are quite important. I have been playing with the settings of rebound etc.

Thanks for all the reactions. I'm very happy with the Flux. Today I made the first serious test ride. I'm still busy with the "prefect" damper setup.

Here a few pic's.





Unfortunately I was unable to make more (action)pic's, the battery was empty....

Gorgeous build.

you're running Speed King's on mud? does that even hook up at all?

that looks like the sort of terrain where the Race King would be more appropriate (plus the big volume 2.2 model ROCKS).

Yes Speedking's, but I mounted them for the pictures yesterday and had no time to change them anymore. But the Raceking is too limited for me.

I'm running several types of tyres, Nokian NBX lit, Mountainkings, Speedkings and several Schwalbe tyres. But the Speedkings were still unused, so the perfect tire for the first pic's :D

I also replaced an Speccy Epic SWorks with a Flux and never looked back. Flux is way more confidence insipring when pointed downhill, and far more fun overall.

If you are running in mud (tis the season) the Mountain King will probably be your best bet as far as Conti's go.

Does anybody know the color of the frame? Before I had a Copper ano frame, but due to a dent caused by a rock, I received this frame what isn't the same as the old one. The paper says it's Copper.... Anyway it is not a Ano frame, but the color....?

This is the old frame:


Note: the old frame is hanging above my bed, it wasn't my idea but from my girlfriend :D.
