    Disclaimer – I own a DW link 5 Spot.
    It looks fine, and it’s a bike I’d like to own but DW link Turners aren’t brilliant looking. It’s actually just as well it’s a non-driveside photo, Turners look better that way as you can’t see the weird looking elevated stay on the drive side.
    Based on what my 5 Spot is like I’m quite sure it’ll be great to ride, near indestructible and very well supported by Turner but other companies make better looking bikes.

    As above.

    To OP – judging by his responses on MTBR forum DT specs a Lev as it negates any issues caused by hose routing when a Reverb is dropped (think he uses a Reverb on his bike though). Turner’s aren’t drilled for stealth routing.

    But then it’s a Turner so it must be good – right?

    I know all things are personal, but in over 20 years of mtb my DW 5Spot is (alongside my old Intense M1 DH bike) the best bike I have ridden. I’d love to try the new Burner.


    I’ll be sticking with my Blur LTc…

    Me too. I had a DW spot before my LTc. I prefer the LTc by quite a lot, although the spot was a very efficient climber.
    I really like the look of Turners and £1700 for a frame of this quality is bloody good IMHO.

    I’ve always liked Turners, and want a 650b Flux as an efficient Trail/Race bike. I have no issue with how that looks.

    Its going to very hard to let go of my ASR5 though. 🙁


    To be honest, doesn’t look that much different to my old Trance (before they got stretched to 29 and then shrunk again to 27.5), except that the photographer’s a lot better! Oh, and my Trance probably cost about a third the price…

    @Kryton57, no mail regarding this, but then I’m not surprised as when I said original I actually meant original as in the 10 year old one! 🙂
