Thanks!Nice!! What size tyre on the back, on what rim? Could you still run it if you were using 2x or 3x?
The rear tire is 2.8". Fits great with equal clearance on the sides and top. But with my current setup, the chain rubs lightly against the tire lightly when it's on the largest cog. If you were to go 2x, you'd be limited to a subset of the smaller cogs while in the granny gear.
Though I do remember reading that the m8000 1x crankset has a slightly different chain line than other 1x cranks. Perhaps using a different crank for a 2x setup would yield better results.

SPAM alert, but I've got a 2014 size L with CK wheels, Push-ed Monarch, etc. that is now redundant. Good size scratch on downtube (car rack mishap) and about time for new bushings. PM me if interested.Still loving my as well since I started this thread 4 1/2 years ago...eeek. Almost picked another frame up listed "as new" a couple of weeks ago for my wife to replace her dw-Flux v3. But I was too slow and it sold
Congrats!Glad to see this thread still getting some action. I just picked up a second hand XL Burner v3.1 frame. I'm thrilled to be building this up as my first full-suspension bike. I started on a fatbike, progressed to a hardtail plus bike, then a hardtail 29er, most recently an all-mountain 27.5 hardtail and now the Burner. I've been reasearching frames for months. With a logic perhaps unique to me, I really wanted a 140mm travel bike with modern geometry (but on the less-progressive end of the spectrum), made from aluminum (just not ready for the investment in carbon), and 142 rear spacing with clearance for decent width tires (have too many good parts in the non-Boost standard). There's a handful of bikes that fit this criteria, but only the Burner brings the made in the USA ethos and commitment to good pedaling that I want to prioritize. Here's my upcoming build spec, photos to come.

Can't wait to experience what you have -- a bike that climbs and descends with alacrity and confidence. Add in durability, quality and the Turner customer service and I can't (and won't) ask for more.
