My dream is Turner…
So if you were buying one now for general trail, trailcentre use and 24hr events, which would you buy? Flux 27.5, or sultan 29, or a Burner?
It’s likely to be my last ever MTB (honest) and is my dream bike, yet might replace an ASR5, which i am very happy with so has a lot to live up to.Posted 4 years agovondallySubscriber
Having owned turner HL xce/rfxs/flux and DW flux I have just bought a second hand turner sultan frame (a complete whim and to use up the shed parts 8)), first ride today and in the afterglow of it being a blast on downs and singletrack and very capable on the ups( The sultan reminds me most of my xce in the day) I would say a Sultan for general trail duties and riding but my Rocky mountain element 29er is better for 24hr and races.
I do like 29ers for being stable/faster and generally more comfortable, I sold the DW flux as I did not like the feel of the suspension nor the bike, set up 120mm at the front.
Learnt a lot on air pressure and the sultan feels more progressive in its travel and with 120 mm Fox Talas is nicely balanced.
Finally imho SultanPosted 4 years agoroverpigSubscriber
It’s not a good time to be buying your last ever MTB I wouldn’t have thought. Nothing against 27.5 or 29 as wheel sizes in theory, but both are new enough that the geometry is likely to evolve a bit more over the next few years I’d have thought. So whatever you buy now you may want to change in a few years, but then I guess that’s always the case.
Oh and if we’re going to have a timeless English landscape, let’s at least make it a Turner 🙂

Simwit, I tried. Uploaded the pic to tiny, generated the url but for some reason, it wouldn’t let me copy that link to paste here. Might be because I’m on a phone rather than a computer.
Fortunately, I’m better at building bikes than I am working computery stuff.Posted 4 years agothe wandererMember
If I was choosing between either the Burner, new Flux or Sultan. I would:
– Get the Burner if I wanted to do any lift accessed riding / Alpine riding
– Otherwise I’d get the flux as I think with my riding style, I would prefer the smaller wheels over the Sultan’s 29″ers.
Personally, I won’t be parting with my spot any time soon though, it’s ace.Posted 4 years ago
