    I'm a homer :)

    My burner frame just got to the house, now I need to build it up. I'll post pictures later, but need to order my XR rockers and decide what to put on it components wise

    I bought this frame on a whim while on a biz trip in San Diego based on the rave reviews on this site, so I can't wait to actually ride one

    I plan to move the following from my old bike:

    Reba Race 100mm
    X.9 triggers and RD
    Hope XC/DT Swiss wheelset

    Need to figure out the rest (depends on whether I sell my old bike whole or strip it and sell what I don't use). Will post pictures later ...

    thnx

    Now: Turner Burner (almost)

    Larry's the best ...

    Put in my order for parts with Larry at MountainHighCyclery, he's a great guy and easy to do business with. Highly recommended. I'll post pics later but here's the build spec ...

    Frame Turner Burner Large (Silver)
    Rear Shock Fox Float R ProPedal w/AVA
    Fork Reba Team
    Headset Cane Creek S2
    Stem FSA OS-170 (once I get the fit dialed in, I'll get a Thomson X4)
    Handlebar FSA XC-190
    Seatpost Thomson
    Saddle Spec BG Rival (or the BG Comp I have lying around)
    Seatpost Clamp Salsa FlipLock
    Brakes Avid BBDB7 (old reliable )
    Shifters X9 Trigger
    Brake Levers SD7
    FD XT
    RD X9
    Crank Set XT
    Pedals SD-M540
    Chain XT
    Cassettes XT
    Wheels Hope XC, DT 4.1D, Comp spokes, Hope Skewers
    Tyres Panaracer XC Pro
    Cables Flak Jacket

    Any comments? Suggestions. I don't want to drive Larry nuts but if I have to change anything I have until Monday

    Shoud come in right around 28lbs, and if all goes well everything will be here next Friday and I'll ride it on the weekend
