    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.

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