    I have a Sultan but want a Burner

    I have a 2013 Sultan - incredible bike. I like the idea of having a Burner. I ride rocky trails so the big wheels work great. Burner seems like it would be a really fun bike. I would probably keep the Sultan. Interested if anyone has moved from the Sultan to a Burner or is considering doing the same.

    I'm thinking the same thing and would be curious to hear the experiences of anyone who has made the move.

    I've gone from a TNT Sultan to a Burner with a quick period on a Niner RDO.

    Love my Burner, but it's a different style of bike when compared to the older Sultan.
    Rolling on 29", 650b, 8.3" and 23mm

    Simple answer, it's still just a bike.

    Not me...

    I have three 29er's (and at ~6'2" I don't see the need for 27.1").

    The '09 Sultan large is my main go to ride for chunky stuff, plus a geared hard tail and rigid steel single speed. Had an aluminum Rig EBB single speed before the SIR and haven't noticed a huge difference between steel and aluminum frames. The rigid steel fork definitely gets my attention on rough downhills though...
