    New Burner arrived today!

    Many thanks to Mike at Timberline Cycles for a great build in record time after scouring the country for parts. (If anyone lives on the Front Range, I definitely recommend Timberline!) The final build, without pedals, came in at a sweet 26.25 lbs., including dropper post. Here's the spec:

    - Burner Large frame, silver, with Fox CTD Kashima shock
    - RockShox Revelation RCT3 150mm fork
    - Stans Crest 27.5 wheels
    - Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 up front, Nobby Nic in back, tubeless, both snakeskin
    - Full XX1 drivetrain, trigger shifter
    - Kind Shock LEV dropper post w/remote
    - SRAM XO Trail brakes, 180/160mm F/R
    - Answer Carbon 720mm bar
    - Thomson X4 stem
    - WTB saddle
    - Ritchey WCS grips

    Her maiden voyage will come tomorrow a.m., not sure how I'll sleep!

    Nice rig! Be sure to post back after the ride. You ever ridden XX1 before? Interested in your thoughts on that as well. Time to get it dirty.

    Yowza, nice light weight for sure.

    Looking forward to the review and especially the XX1 and Rev. fork. Now you live in CO I think which has it's fair share of rocks. Burners are quite low so I'll be interested if you have pedal strike issues and also how the Crest's hold up.
