    I told you 650B is no good!

    At this point, do you think the DB is worth the cost difference? BTW, just go with a good carbon wheelset, and life will be better.

    The Burner is good; the Chinese carbon rims, not so much.

    It is too early to say much about the DBA vs the stock Fox ctd. The Fox ctd was the best fox air shock I have ridden to date, it felt so much better than the RP23s of years past. I don't know how much of that is due to getting the tune right for the frame, or maybe the new eyelet bushing system that greatly reduces binding at the mount points, but the shock felt pretty damn good.
    I only have two rides on The DBA and am early in the dialing it in phase of our relationship. That said, I really like it so far. I look forward to getting it tuned just right and I will share the settings with everyone.

    About the wheels - yep enve in my future here.

    Honestly I knew I was taking a chance on the hoops but wanted to check them out anyway. LB says they will replace the rim and that they are beefing up the spoke bed on the 27.5 hoops to prevent this from happening in the future.
    We will see.
    I am a bit concerned about the undamaged front hoop and will ask if they will replace it with the updated design as well. I'd hate to rip the rim off the spokes in a hard corner or on an off camber landing...

    Thanks!
    Only use C when I'm riding on the road to and from the trails, only use T when I'm pushing on on mellow terrain. Off road I just leave it in D and let the shock and suspension take care of things.

    Thanks for the good word! I've read that DW is less dependent on platform valving for pedaling efficiency so I'm looking forward to trying it with the various settings...doubt I'll ever use the C setting though the T setting might be useful on some sections/trails.

    Here is a quick video I tossed together of Burner riding. I had expected to have a lot more footage to edit from but then the wheel failure happened. Still it isn't too bad, it may be almost watchable even.

    Sorry if I missed it, but can you comment on the CCDB air on this frame vs stock?

    I like my CCDB coil on my DHR and would consider the air for the burner.

    I just don't have enough ride time on the CCDBA to make an informed comparison. I only had two rides on the shock before my rear wheel failed. First impressions are a big thumbs up though.

    The Spot has been getting a good bit of ride time while I sort my wheel issues. It has been good to get back on 26" wheels for a while, I was having trouble talking myself into riding it as much as I should with the Burner ready to go.

    New rear hoop at my door yesterday after work. May be back on the Burner real soon, the Spot has been treating me well but I look forward to riding the Burner again.
    Looking forward to dialing in the CCDBA, barely got any time in on it before wheel issues.

    That's why I am posting this thread, lots of questions out there. Feel free to ask whatever you like about the bike/wheels...

    Thanks for keeping the R in MTBR, 1sr.

    Cost aside, what would be the ultimate wheelset for the Burner? I recently had built a 29er with Enve AM hoops, and I'm really impressed with the performance. They feel something like my 650b Flows, only smoother. I'm thinking Enve XC on a Burner to shave a little weight, but am seeking a trail-centric setup (1x10 or 11). Never owned a 34mm fork, but am entertaining that also.

    TIA!

    Dunno about "ultimate," but mine will get White Industry hubs laced to Pacenti TL-28 rims by my local shop's wheelbuilder...

    Depending on your terrain and intended useage I would recomend a enve am wheelset with the Fox 34. Any less would be under gunning the frame IMO. I am looking forward to getting ahold of a 275 Lyric sometime soon, the Burner deserves it.

    I have a 650b Loop I could use, but I can see a 34 being the nazz.

    The 34 is a good fork. However, after riding my Spot with the Lyric up front back to back with the Burner/Fox combo.... the Lyric comes out on top for me. It has a more robust feel on the trail, and although the latest Fox stuff is a big improvment over past years, I perfer the feel of the Solo DH cart to the CTD.

    Haven't heard about this possibility of a dedicated 275 Lyric although the std. 26" Lyric does fit some 650 tires. Have you heard something is coming?
