    Nitrous or Flux?

    I currently have a Burner...I've been eyeballing the Flux for a lighter bike....I've lost a bunch of weight riding this year...now down to about 162 lbs. For my height, I doubt I will get much lower. Now I am considering the Nitrous. Is this too close to the bike limit? What do you think, should I stick to a Flux? I was hoping to do some racing next year, and I love my Burner, but it is a bit too heavy..

    Let me know what you think.

    As many others will say here, the Nitrous is a race-day only bike. The Flux is a pound heavier, but is way more versatile. It's a fine race bike, but you can take it on all of the same trails where your Burner has been ridden.

    get the flux, because:

    1/ unless you weigh the equivalent of an 8 year old you should not buy a bike with a weight limit

    2/ you won't notice the weight difference (my flux feels lighter when i ride it than my HT did...and the HT was lighter by a couple of pounds)

    3/ i love my flux!
