I recently bought a Flux and although the bike is fine, well good, I'm just not loving it as much as I expected.
On paper it looks right size wise, but I'm wondering if it is just a geometry thing... confusing though as the HT I had before had a shorted TT and I loved it and the FS I had before that (a Five) had a longer TT and I loved that! So you'd think, being in the middle, it'd be fine!
Anyway, I've just ordered an inline seatpost as although I've got the saddle as far forward as it'll go on the dropper I'm running, it's still further back than it would be in a mid position on an inline post... could something as little as that make a difference?
My other thought is the forks. Money was a bit tight stretching for the frame, so I just kept my 09 Revs and internally lowered them to 110mm - they are pretty heavy compared to the SIDs I had on my last bike though, so am wondering whether it'd be worth my while swapping them for something lighter, like some SIDs again?
I know it's not a lot of weight but as I only weight about 105lbs myself, maybe it doesn't take much to be significant?? Certainly my HT was a lot more chuckable... but then, so was the Five?!
Of course, maybe it's me and I was just fitter and faster on my old bikes???
All in all, I'm a bit confused and any advice would be gratefully appreciated! Cheers!
