GLOWING 5SPOT REVIEW FROM BIKERADAR.COM
Trail-ready 5spot
Bikeradar.com has just writted up this great review of the 2012 5Spot and have nothing but good things to say about the way it rides!!

A few highlights-

"From the first pedal stroke it"s immediately apparent that Turner"s application of Dave Weagle"s DW-Link suspension system is unique. It"s impressively sensitive to the terrain rolling under the 5.Spot"s wheels, yet seemingly isolates a rider fully when they"re seated, whether mashing the pedals or spinning tidy little circles."

"In terms of ride quality, the 5.Spot is second to none in the trail category. Its weight is low slung, its chainstays are reasonably short and the compact chassis makes the 67.7 head angle feel quicker than the number suggests. The bike manuals like an animal, and despite its flickability and agility, it"s pretty darn stable when speeds pick up."

"If you"re a super-smooth, expert-level rider you'll be able to ride just about anything on the 5.Spot. "

"One thing that surprised us about the 5.Spot is how light it feels on the trail. Sure, the light wheels Turner sent us for the test helped, but even when we subbed them out for dual-ply tires and heavy-duty 20mm through-axle hoops, the 5.Spot retained its lively feel. Riders would often pick up the bike at the trail head and remark how heavy it felt. However, not once during testing did the bike feel like a dog out on the trail. "
