    Was it a demo or did you buy a new without shock and add your own?

    Not sure I follow....you saying you cant use 26" wheels with 142 rear axle? I am guessing your hubs aren't convertible to 142mm? I sure hope not or my new 5-Spot is going to be tough to ride :)

    Buzz - I'm keen to know how it runs with 26er wheels as this is likely the upgrade path I would consider if buying a Burner.
    Sounds fun

    You got tires and no wheels?

    Ready for that parts swap on the HL axle.

    I don't even know if my hubs are convertible, and I'm excited to try the 27.5. I would give the 26er's a try but.... convert rear hub to 142, new fork is 15mm axle, my wheels are all 20mm, my 26er fork is straight steerer too, so between headset and hubs I doubt I'll bother with that experiment.

    Maybe a box of wheels will show up tomorrow.

    WDF, another excuse to not ride xc, dh runs tomorrow if this thing isn't built up.

    I have a 15mm front you could borrow.

    Lots, even though no one really rode because it was rainy/wet. Paul got out the tape measure and took lots of measurements...
