    put money down on a burner today

    pretty sure i made the right decision. maybe you turner folks can help me calm my nerves, since i'm still not sure if a 3.6" four-bar is better than a 5" single pivot (heckler). still, when i pay off this bike in june, i'm gonna be the happiest guy ever.

    just be sure you will be happy with 3.6 - 4 ".If you really want a 5" travel bike ,you may not be happy down the road.I was in your position and ultimately ended up with a 5 Spot. The great price makes the decision that much harder. If I were you and really wanted a 5" travel bike, and couldn't afford a 5 Spot, I'd probably make a different choice. I have heard nothing but good things about the Heckler. Rich

    You'll love it

    You do realis 0.4" is about a centimetre... I'm sure in practice putting bigger tyres on and just enjoying the ride would get the same effect

    Seriously, the money's down and the Burner is bloody brilliant. What colour did you order?

    2 substantially different bikes - only your terrain and how you intend to ride either bike will dictate whether you made the right choice. Both are excellent frames.

    black, and eventually i'm going to put a green headset on it for a little individuality.
