    Lime green grips FTW!

    That frame had a protruding bit of weld inside the seattube which I have moaned about on another thread previously as it’s not the only Turner I’ve had with this problem. I wrapped a broom handle with wet and dry and finished it myself so all should be good now.

    My ‘old’ 5-spot


    Turner 5 Spot – June 2005 – Current by Alex Leigh, on Flickr

    Horst, bit big but still had lots of fun. Best being two weeks in Moab a few years back. Definitely the prettiest ones 🙂

    My 11 year olds 5-Spot. But might be an RFX. Dunno, it’s a custom size tho and ace.

    Hey Alex, when Jessie outgrows that and should you want to sell it can I have first dibs? My daughter is 5 and she would LOVE that! Actually I love it too, saw your build thread, suspected to be DTs wifes’ frame isn’t it?

    Brilliant bike! Climbs well and a real toy for tech singletrack.

    Well, I bit the bullet and a black 2012 5-spot landed on my desk this morning. Got that bike-build feeling again. Woohoo! 😀

    Try to ignore the state of the patio/fence/brake hoses/logo-valve alignment…

    Absolutely loving my 5-spot!

    I’m 5ft10 and bought a medium 2011 one. Had to sell it because it was too small. I’d say 5ft7 would be perfect on a Medium 5 spot.

    First time round Laggan Black on mine today. What a bloody great bike 🙂 I have had it for a year now and i can honestly say i don’t look at any other bike and wish for a change. Absolutely love mine.

    5′ 8″ on a medium here. Wheelbase is slightly longer than I’m used to (normally ride a hardtail). I love the fact that I can stand up and stomp the pedals without suffering too much bob. Still getting used to riding full suss again after 8 years of hardtails.
