I'm going to get a new full-suspension bike to use for 24 hour racing. The choice is betweent he Ellsworth Truth or the Turner Burner. Does anyone know how much the Burner frame weighs? Which one's "better?" :?

Riding an Id and considering a Dare, I may be slightly biased but I prefer the Ellsworths over the Tuners mainly due to the amount of work Tony Ellsworth has put into designing the bike. Between these two look at the shot-peening on the Truth and the upper horisontal link as to some of the difference in the finishing.

I was initally planing on the Truth but went for the slightly longer travel bike for 24hr racing, this ment at 3am and -2C that I had a little more margin when making creative passes off the racing line.
