Turner Flux owners
I got my shock sorted to stop it using up the mid travel so easily, and it’s even better than before.
120mm SIDs and it’s currently in “trail light” mode with 2.25 ardent up front and dropper post. I really like it in this mode but it feels faster with 2.1 ignitors and a normal post.Posted 4 years ago
Mines a 2009, had 100mm Sids now 120mm Magura Durins.
I am 5ft 10 and mines a medium, but maybe I should have got a large.
That’s my only issue with it. The large has 1 inch more on the headtube, so makes it difficult to swap frames as I haven’t been running with a whole inch of spacers under the stem.Posted 4 years agostumpytrekMember
Been riding my TNT version for years. Striped it down to build other frames up but always return to it. Currently running 120mm at the front which I was surprised to find improved it over the 100mm forks I’d always used before. I think it’s a classic in the making.Posted 4 years ago
Its powdercoated. WTA coatings near Annan, Dumfries & Galloway.
Candy blues or any other candy colour require a silver basecoat whether it be done by Olympic ( Turners powdercoaters ) or anyone else. Conveniently mime was already Sparkle Silver and was in excellent condition so the candy went over the top.
I have no issues with shock fitting and is in my opnion a factory quality finish.
Hope rhis helps

What all will Turner do to beef it up? I have a 2009 in raw with pikes at 120. I wouldn’t fancy riding it at 100mm all day.
Love the bike,I tried a horst flux for a week in 2005/06 and always had that bike stuck in my mind. Bought a horst 5 spot and found it too much after riding the flux. Tried all the kit off my horst 5spot on a tnt 5 spot in a straight swap and the tnt felt a bit quicker but much and such the same.. Sold the 5 spot and years later bought the dw flux. Love it. I think I would choose the dw version out of them all.
No pics, but its a bit fugly with bad colour coordination!Posted 4 years ago
I think they will extend the welding all round the taco at the top of the seattube and must beef up the bit where daves cracked above.
I had 100mm Sids on mine and it was fine, more XC than 120mm though but was always surprised at hope capable the Sids were. The Maguras are stiffer though, I think.Posted 4 years ago
Turner do a refurb service where the bike is repainted, etc – they would probably do the beefing up as part of that if you ask nicely:
or they might just do it anyway if you ask.Posted 4 years ago
I managed to persuade sig123 to sell me his large Flux frame:
Compared to my medium it is more stable, although I think the angles are the same. The 44mm headtube lets me run my old forks as the stack height is the same with an inset headset. Got wider bars and a short stem as well, but the apparent grip from the wheels seems a lot more.
Turner do a turner-for-turner program where I can trade in my other flux for $600 against a new turner frame, which I would have to do direct with them and not through Silverfish.
I wasn’t worried about the back end being 2010 as it is plenty stiff anyway and I run a 10mm RWS, which has a lot more torque than a QR.
The back end isn’t as plush as my 2009 as that has a pushed rp23, push bushings and the enduro needlepoint bearing shock mounts, so some parts of that setup must work !Posted 4 years ago
