    Burner rear frame rigidity

    I am considering a Burner for my next frame. A couple of years back I had a Ventana Bastardo which had excellent lateral rigidity. I haven't ridden anything that compares with it in that regard, but do miss that quality. I had a Tallboy LT which was rigid enough, but not on the level with that Ventana. So, I am curious how the Burner does in terms of lateral stiffness. Can anyone give a comparison or report on that for me/us?

    Sounds like something the German magazines like to measure, and in your case how do determine if it's wheel flex or frame? I believe that is something Turner prioritizes and the combo of mini link, elevated stays, 142 axle and dropouts all work to achieve.
