    Burner review by BikeRadar

    Nice review with error, aside from testing it with a 90mm stem and 700mm bars.

    Is this another test of the prototype with a 65 degree head angle and 140mm Revelation fork? I'm still hoping for a test of the production version...somewhere, someday!

    Also mentioned the lack of iscg05 mount points which the production version has.

    Dunno, pretty sure this is the pre-production model again. This is the same exact kit that was on those bikes--note the XO double drivetrain, 140mm fork, Monarch rear shock and Nevegal tire/Enve rim combo:

    Fork: RockShox Revelation Maxle 15mm thru-axle, 140mm travel
    Shock: RockShox Monarch Plus
    Wheels: ENVE AM 275 rims, Chris King Iso disc 15mm front, 142x12mm rear
    Tyres: Kenda Nevegal DTC 2.35in
    Cranks: SRAM X0, 28/40T
    Gears: SRAM X0
    Brakes: SRAM X0 180/160mm rotors
    Handlebar: ENVE Composites carbon 700mm low riser bar
    Stem: ENVE 90mm stem

    I think the Ver 3.0 refers to this being the third frame to carry the Burner name?

    :Yep, looks like the same pre-production bike we rode at Interbike.

    The article is identical to the one in What Mountain Bike that someone posted a few days ago. Either they are sister publications or someone is plagerizing.

    At the bottom of the page on BikeRadar's article:
    This article was originally published in What Mountain Bike magazine, available on Apple Newsstand and Zinio.

    They are under the same publisher I think. The reviewers seem to ride approximately 400 bikes over the Interbike dirt demomdays and then ration out reviews over the course of the year. So us lucky UK readers get to read reviews of bikes tested in desert conditions while we ride round hub-deep in slurry for 360 days a year

    Luckily DT has the presence of mind to cater mud with ample clearance and zerks fittings!

    I'd love to give one of these Burners a go.... The XX1 build on the Turner site has got me more than a bit worked up......
