    Burner Chainstay Length?

    I just looked at the new (for me) Turner website and noticed that the 5 spot and Burner have 16.9 chainstays. Yet I distinctly remember the old site (about a month ago) saying they had 16.7 chainstays. Which is correct?

    My wife's burner and my XCE have the same length chainstays.

    They appear to be about 16.9". Definitely not 16.7".

    I clipped this from an earlier thread:

    5 Spot: 3.125" (3-1/8th) hey that's what I got. I'm sure the Burner measurement is just rounded a tad.

    Outside chainstay width at same point:
    "..is same for both" Burner & RFX (you didn't say what that was though)
    5 Spot: 4.25" (eyeballed)

    Stay tubing width:
    RFX and Burner both have 22mmx22mm tubing for stays.
    5 Spot also has 22mmx22mm tubing.

    Seatstay length:
    "measures same." for RFX and Burner (you didn't say what that was though)
    5 Spot: 14.5" (eyeballing rocker pivot to axle)

    Chainstay, main pivot to axle:
    RFX: 400mm
    Burner: 365mm
    5 Spot: 406.4mm (16")

    Main pivot to rear pivot:
    RFX: 330mm
    Burner: 335mm
    5 Spot: 333.375mm (13-1/8")

    BB to rear axle:
    RFX: 430mm
    Burner: 407mm
    5 Spot: 425.45mm (16-3/4")
