Hi
I am on the market for a short trail bike/xc epic race bike (was considering Spec Camber 2014, or Ibis Ripley), was thinking about Flux 2014 27.5.
Today I saw an ad for a 2nd hand Turner Flux 2011 with 2012 components (full xt and crossmark st wheelset and 120mm fox float) for a decent price.
It sounds very attractive, but I spoke to an XC racer friend of mine and he claims that its an outdated frame design and I shouldn't buy it and look at the 27.5 or 29er options. I already have a 29er hard tail and a 26er, and I like them both, but I think a 26er is more fun (thats why I wanted the 27.5).
What do you guys think? Is the turner flux 2011 frame really outdated geometry? Is it any different than the new flux besides the wheel size?
Thanks!

Seems more XC to me than the current model, 105mm vs 120mm travel, I think it's a great bike if you aren't hung up on wheel sizes.

It's a fun bike... It feels small under you like the BMX of MTBs because of the low top tube. I don't know if the geometry is outdated but I like mine.
