    Used Burner question

    I'm looking at a 2014 Burner frame and wondering what the difference is between the 3.0 as compared to the 3.1 Can you guys shed some light?

    Ability to fit an internal angleset and looks, 1inch lower seatpost top, so to be able to run longer droppers.

    Nothing that should influence your decision if you liked the bike and it fits

    yes, that too.. you can do that yourself or just run it external, works fine too.
    On medium burner 3.0 the most forward clamp for cables on the top tube is a bit tricky since it got litle room for the hexkey, but.. yeah if its used, 3.1 or 3.0 should not matter in ride quality or anything like that..

    Yes, the most forward mount on the TT for cables is a **** in the **** - it's amazing that Turner stuffed this up so bad....I associate ease of use with Turner.

    I'm considering doing the internal mod to mine...it does make me a little nervous though...

    pachavan, there is a post somewhere here on the board by a guy who modded his seat tube for an internal dropper.
