    Will the Burners be the new generation 3.1 unveiled recently?
    I am torn between this or Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail...

    The Burner will be the v3.0 version, not the one unveiled at Sea Otter, but my understanding is that the suspension kinematics should be at least similar.

    I have not ridden the Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail, but based on others' reviews and the single pivot suspension design of the Guerrila Gravity bikes, I think the Turners have a clear edge on climbing. If you like how the Burner handles and descends, I think you have your answer. If you're in the area, reserve a free demo and try out the Burner for yourself.

    Thanks. I understand no major changes. My reasoning for wanting to see is assisting in sizing. At 6'1 and half inches, it is not a slam dunk as it is on the Megatrail for sizing. I fall in the middle on the burner so would like to compare large to x-large. And then not knowing if this has been tweaked at all on 3.1 version, does not really help...

    Thanks

    I believe you'll fall pretty squarely in the middle of the size range for an XL Burner. I have another demo reservation on that day for the XL Burner from 10-12 with a request for a 45mm stem. If you want to reserve a demo for the 12-2 time slot, I can make sure you get to try the XL Burner with the 45 mm stem so you can get an idea on how short the XL can feel.

    I'm 6'2" and I ride an XL burner with a 40mm stem. Fits me great.
