I am glad i got my hands on one of the last Flux frame's out there, but my wish would be longer rockers to match the travel of my Reba Race Dual Air which has 120mm, any ideas out there?

Thank you.

P.S: Some might say - hey you better bought a 5 Spot, but my Highline would join a little 2009 sister...


Cheers,

Chris

Fughetaboutit. You'll never get it out of her purse anyway. :rolleyes:

I'm so digging those dubs. That car probably has the turning radius of a Winnebago.

should have bought a 5 Spot. The Flux is what it is- a light XC dedicated bike that can be raced on XC courses. It's not a hucker, it's not a 5 Spot, and it's hardly a frame you want to make match a number on a fork. Rather, you make the fork match the frame, period.
Ummm...:rolleyes: I'm sure a lot of Flux riders would disagree with that assessment. Though it's not a 5 Spot, the Flux is definitely not a race-day-only XC bike. I personally see mine as a light trail bike that can be raced. Nitrous maybe, but not the Flux.

"...that can be raced"

not:

"race-day-only XC bike"

The Flux makes a great light trailbike. I'm planning on running some reba 120s at some point, maybe with a wide flat bar. I wouldn't worry about the travel mis-match - the flux's rear 100 probably surpases the suspension of a lot of 120mm frames out there...

heres another 1.

great trail bike within reason. not bad at all with a 120 fork in the semi chunk or on the way down but id stop short of not bein able to drop it to 100 and even 80mm for the rest. the flux was prime with a talus.

My girlfriend has a Flux and I put my old Duc 32 on it. The low A2C didn't change the ride much but the 150 fork up front is nice. I never thought about bumping up the rear travel though. I just tried to talk my girlfriend into getting a bike she would enjoy riding up or down. She ended up with a 30lb nomad and it's working great. It is kinda funny seeing a double crown fork on sub 25lb xc bike though.
