    New Burner

    Just got her built up, going out to ride tomorrow. I'm surprised at home much fatter the top tube is compared to my 2000 XCE. Feels a hair lighter too, but not enough to be noticable on the trail. As you can see, I prefer the stealth mode...

    The stealth mode looks cool. However, you missed the sticker on the Fox Propedal

    Sweet!

    Why half V/Disk?

    How about a ride report? I haven't read much on the ride and feel of the Burner.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    This is one of the Supergo bikes, so it actually isn't Propedal, just a regular Fox RL, yeah...gotta loose that sticker too..

    I found rear disk is a waste for me. Big front disk makes a difference, but a nice ceramic V rear gives me better modulation.

    I'll post after I ride.

    My fork and bike are stickerless. On a recent ride, I had a guy walk up and lift my Spot and say, "Nice bike but it is a touch heavy." I just laughed. He was riding a GT HT.

    Great deal. I would not worry about the pro-pedal deal on that bike. Who cares. That frame is going to be so motionless it will be awesome pedaling.
