I've found the flux can take a good technical trail as well as any other 4" bike. I put a 120 mil fork on mine and am currently running a 2.3" tire in front. It's a ripper.sdcadbiker said:Hi Bally, Welcome to Planet Turner!
XL, no question. I'm 6' 1", 34" inseam and I agonized over which size; I finally settled on L because I'm using my Flux primarily for racing, if you are not a racer then XL will make the bike much more of an all rounder (light AM duty, for instance, will be easier to handle).
I don't regret my decision but if I had to do it again...
BTW, Flux is primarily an XC race machine, is that what you want to do? Otherwise a Spot might be more suitable. Check out some of the "Flux or Spot?" threads.
Just my .02.
The Burner wights as much as a 5 Spot due to straight gauge tubing (cost saving measure as this was a budget frame for Turner back in 2004). If you're considering a Burner, you may as well get a 5 Spot as you get 1.5in-1.9in more travel (depending on the rocker, which varied over the years) and more relaxed geometry for the same weight.bally said:Thanks JFB
What do you think of this burner http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290388103848&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT.
Can you still get the frame bushes? Would it be worth have it repainted?
