    2x10 on the Burner

    Just curious what others are running up front on their Burners?

    I'm building mine up and have XTR trail cranks. Swapped out the the stock 38 for a 36 and I'm concerned I might not be able to mount my derailleur low enough to not have it contact the link during full compression. Using an XTR 2x front derailleur, top pull only as prescribed by Turner.

    Is this the dual pull model that needs to modified or is there a top pull only version? Are you running this with a 36?

    the der is a little high but it works fine. i have a similar setup and it works great. the fact that your running a lower drive gear means you'll have less chainring shifts down to granny in the first-place right. you can finish the deduction. have fun.

    SRAM X7. Nothing to cut or grind off, and seems to work great.

    Original SLX 36/22 double with built in delrin bash guard.

    Not that I bash much these days, but oh, it looks bada$$!

    What are the rings and casettes on the XT 2x10 build kit?
    Lacerations through intact armor are a mark of talent... or stupid... or both...
