Colors

I forgot to list the colors of some of the items. I was going for a red & blue accent.
-hubs - red
-nipples - blue
-shock - red/blue on stickers and lever
-poploc on bar - blue dial
-rear der - red lettering
-tires - red/blue text
-fork - red rock shox lettering
-fork - compression/poploc dial blue
-shifters - red lettering
-handlebars - red lettering

Everything else is pretty much black and white/silver

You get the idea. Didn't plan it all but it turned out well I think - subtle.

Awesome- I was looknig at the Flux a while ago as a new rig, but have desided to go a new Bass Rig instead...

Custom/Handmade by me 2x12" Bass Cabinet rated to about 750w
Ashdown RMP1 EVO II Preamp
Crown Power Amp.

Nothing light about it, will weigh in at like 75lbs :p

But seriously thats one very nice Turner, makes me think about getting one again... What does she ride like?

Haven't had a chance to ride it on the trails yet - just the road once. I'll post reviews when I do. However, it feels very solid compared to my 18.5lb hardtail!

You're right, I could save close to 1.5lbs if I used the same setup as my hardtail. I'll just see how "beefier" setup works on the trials and then start to experiment.

Hardtail Setup:
Kenda Klimax Lite Tires 790g for two plus Performance Lunar Lite Tubes 192g for two.

Thanks for feedback though.

Coming from a sub 18 pound hardtail background, I'm doing a similar build as you have (with a FSR 120 S-Works frame), and decided to go with more durable, wider tires. I rode many full suspension frames before (some for several months), but never actually owned one. I hated the setups, where I could have gone crazy-fast downhill, but did not dare since I didn't trust the tires for that speed. That bike is not good for its purpose, since you have to match the performance a good full-suspension bike can provide with the traction of the tire. IMHO one should save the weight on the inner tube, or the tubeless system on an FS bike, and not on the width, the sidewall or the knobs...

I couldn't agreee more. I am thoroughly impressed with the durabliltiy of the IRC tires. That CAF casing is more than marketing BS. They are very tear resistant. But I would go with lighter tubes. Get some 1.2 - 1.5" tubes in the 100- 140g range or someting, or go stans. I ran stans with the IRC Serracs and they worked fine. Sealant would weep through the sidewalls, but they eventually sealed. I first tried stans on a well used set of IRC Mythos and they never sealed. They would hold until I started riding and the stretching and twisting of the casing would open up about ten-billion little pinholes. Too much for stans to cope with, but starting wiht brand new tires, it worked ok.

Lucky

I hope you feel lucky! I have been waiting for a Flux since I prototyped one almost a year ago. I had to put my Spot on a diet to help with the long wait, but it still don't feel like a Flux when you want to haul up the mountain. Happy Trails DT

I do feel lucky! I put an order into my LBS here in Manahattan Beach, CA back in Feb I think and at the time they said the wait would be a few months and it showed up in a week!

Oh, I also meant to ask anyone if they knew the positions of the RP3 shock - is the plus "+" side Full ProPedal or Plush?

Thanks!
Matt
