After pouring over various geometries of XC/Trail bikes (mostly Santa Cruz/Pivot), I keep coming back to the Flux carbon. I have an aluminum flux and will give that to my son.

Thoughts? Out of warranty, I'm sure, but new, unbuilt frames are available at Cambria.

It's old-skool geometry. Dave Turner even stated on mtbr that he had should have adopted the "modern geometry" back in 2012.

It doesn't matter what geometry your bike has if it doesn't fit you and how you ride the trails that you frequent. I own a Carbon Flux, and have owned aluminum versions. The Carbon Flux is great if you are doing a lot of steep climbing and are riding tight trails. You haven't told us how and what you ride. If you are a bikepark/shuttle rider, it probably isn't the bike for you.

I agree! I still own an XL aluminum Flux and if Turner made the carbon model in XL I would be riding that bike today. But having no warranty only works for me if I get it dirt cheap.
