Hey everybody
I might be buying a used Burner in XL, and I'm super excited about the possibility of joining the Turner crew.

My only hesitation is that it's an XL, and I'm 6'1', which is dead in the middle of Large and XL according to Turner's site.

I like to run shorter stems, so maybe the XL is okay...

Can anyone who is 6'1' comment on which size Burner they're on?

Is there a shop near by that you can test ride the bikes at. I am 6'2" and ride a large Bronson, and find it to be very comfortable, i considered getting an xl bronson but was concerned about it feel to large(i would have run a short stem on it).

Also the bike you have now if you figure out the stack and reach of your current bike you can compare that to the turner and that will give you an idea of how it will fit.

I'm the same height as you, and also have a large SB-95 with a 55mm stem, and I don't feel cramped. With a 140mm Fox, I have the reach of the Yeti at 16.7 in. The large Burner has a reach of 17.0 in and the XL is 17.9. If I were buying a Burner, I would almost certainly go with the Large. I feel that I fit best on bikes with a reach between 16.8-17.2 inches. There is some wiggle room, but I think that a reach of nearly 18 inches is just a bit too much at our height, unless you have super long arms (I don't)
