    I was hoping that the standover would be lower by the same .68 difference in travel as compared to the Burner, but it's actually .2 higher. Oh well the small Burner had tons of standover.

    Are the wheelbase measurements off? If the only difference in length from size to size is the top tube wouldn't the WB measurement match that difference?

    Have to say - I am actually starting to really like the lack of burrito. The curves are good.

    The weight reduction is welcome too.

    They still are talking about "burrito vs taco" on the feature page, seems like they were on a hurry to upload.
    With the change to a shaped top tube being a main feature I guess it won't take much time for them to notice.

    So the XL has a 46.5 wheelbase? Really? That can't be right.

    I see the top tube lengths are longer again for a given size. Versus say the 5 Spot. Is this due to people running shorter stems and wider bars? Or some other design element / philosophy ?

    That's about right. My Ventana Alpino 120mm with like geo numbers has a 46.73 wheel base and almost a 1-lb lighter

    1 lb as in 454 gr? I never saw the weights for the Alpino frames on their website.
    I realized where I saw the weights, a post in Ventana forum,
    "I also got the weight for the 17 from Teresa, 6.4 lbs translated to gr 2905. Not weightweenie, but, not bad at all!
    Chad's 19 6.81 lbs "
    What size is your Alpino?

    Hey Wilks,
    longer than ole Spot 'cause it is aimed more XCish regular dude trail bike than gnar core enduro radness allmountain shredding and with the trend to wider bars and shorter stems the Flux has a bit longer TT than Spot.

    With clutch type derailers, lost chains are a thing of the past, especially with a double or the new SRAM singles.

    I've been riding xx1 on a 6" bike on very rocky, rooty terrain and I don't think I could drop a chain if I tried and now you can get bash guards that work with xx1 chain guides are not really necessary.

    Same here, I feel like I wasted the money on the chainstay protector; the lack of chainslap is very nice with clutch type xt the new bike came with.
