they wouldn't have a problem selling to a non-dealer shop, would they? wonder if i could convince the shop i work at to contact Turner about becoming a dealers....

and does the Flux's geometry set it in between something like a Blur 4X and a full-on race/ XC oriented 4" frame? or am i just fooling myself? i'm looking for something that maintains stability going down, both slowly and quickly, yet will climb like a goat.

Thats odd, Austin is perfect Turner terrain, with all the rocky goodness there and the climbs I would say the 5 Spot might be the perfect bike, unless your looking for a race bike too. The 5 Spot is probably the best technical climber I have ridden, and has a slack enough HA to feel stable on the descents too.

Are they no longer a dealer?

Hey Inbred,
I am in Austin..
don't you work at the sportshop?
I can't see them being a turner dealer.. they just don't seem to get the highend thing at all..
good at Trek and that stuff
didn't they try Turner years ago, I could have sworn a friend got one from them
I am pretty sure they tried Intense and I know ellsworth (the rep is a friend of mine)
too bad about HH not doing Turners, they are the only ones that seem to know what they are doing when it comes to setting up suspension, disc brakes, etc...
maybe in the future they will again, they seem to be doing a lot of Intense and Ellsworth, and of course loads of Titus, the shop wall is always full of them coming and going

yeah, i work at BSS. seems us mechanics would like to see the shop become a dealer for something high end, other than Ellsworth, but i guess that ain't going to happen. the only Ellsworth bikes that come in are Team Paul Mitchell bikes.

Am I crazy, or is that a hair product?

had one, sold it. should've listened to everyone. but then again, the money i got for it allowed me to build up my HT with a pretty stout build.
