    Banshee at Interbike or Outerbike?

    Will Banshee have demo bikes at either of these events. I don't see them listed.

    Would really like to ride a 650b Spitfire

    If you have the chance to demo-ride one - hope you enjoy it! I like my 650B Spitfire better than equipped with 26ers - curious ...

    Banshee will not be attending either show. It's just too expensive for us to justify as a small company, and our North American distributor feels the same.
    We are working on making more demo bikes avaliable through our rep network, you should contact Trident Sports to ask if there are any demo bikes in your area. You can find their details on our website.

    Good choice! I've heard rumours about just how expensive these industry tradeshow booth are... ridiculous. And having attended once... that was enough!

    We have our local skills park here (Duthie Hill) and bike brands often host demo days with vans & demo bikes. Free for the brand, riders love it, you get an extended test ride on your local trails... and nobody needs to compete with a sales rep or shop mgr for a test ride.

    With that stated, 2014 Spitfire and/or Rune will be Fox Float X equipped ?

    I'm asking because I 've found one picture out of Eurobike.

    I feel you man. Same here in Thailand. Buy it first, then try it, if you like it it's good, if you don't like like it you gotta accept you're going to lose some money on the 2nd hand market. I'm praying I'm gonna love my Spitfire.

    The Rune comes with the float X option for 2014, but not the spitfire.
