Whats up; I currently have a small Burner and It feel a little small for me. I have a 100mm stem and still at times feel like im going over the bars. I'm 5'9" and thinking about getting a Flux and selling the Burner. I will get a medium flux but was wondering if it would hold up to my 220 lbs clyds weight? I will be loosing poundage though as I ride.

I am 6' 200lbs and ride a large Flux and I have no worries with the frame. I also owned a Burner - the Flux suspension is more responsive compared to the Burner. I was really surprised by the difference.

At 5'9'', you're probably at the tipping point between M and L Flux. I am 5'9'' (1.75m) and have a M Flux which fits me very well (details in the set-up database). I cant comment on the 220lbs though; I am 155lbs.

I know, small is crazy. I should have not listened to the dudes at Superho when I bought it. I am just cramped in it now and I feel like the front end is going to give out on me or im going over the bars every ride. And I know Turners are great. But the small fram makes it feel not so great.. Thanks for the replies. This is why im in the market for a new frame. Its a pricey mistake

I have a medium and I'm 5'10" with a 110 stem.

Buy right, buy once. An educated consumer is a happy one. Additionally, lots of people come to this board for questions, which is good, but you'll get several different responses for many of them. The Turner website has a good FAQ section and the company is fantastic with pre and post sales support, so I would recommend collecting pertinent data (measurements) and then speaking to the Turner guys and getting their suggestions. They know a lot more about these bikes than we do.
