    Have been following this thread lately, (mostly picture browsing), but has it been mentioned why Banshee decided to switch from black to green on the yellow frames?

    Modified LG1+. For the heavier stuff I will change back original taco with lower slider if needed. But seems like there is no need for that. Using the Shadow+ derailleur.

    Did Banshee ever mentioned the Yellow Frames having Black Decals?

    Prime-Frame, as an Example:

    ...fair point ...they never did

    ...but as a soon-to-be owner of the yellow version im kind of regretting my decision to go for this colour ...looks fugly with green decals, to be honest ...i was hoping, that its possible to remove all the decals (except for the main one) as the test bike previewed at vitalmtb looked like... simple, clean, beautiful ...the decals make the frame look cheap in my opinion

    ...however, as someone said earlier in this thread, decals dont ride, so i can live with that ...but dont tell me youre not more happy if your bike looks nicer

    So, strip the paint and do it to exactly what you like? The bike companies can't provide designs that will appeal to everyone. I love my Demo, but couldn't stand the colours available at the point I bought my frame, so I stripped it. I didn't let "ugly" graphics stop me from buying a bike with a geometry that appealed to me.
    I'm not a huge fan of the new graphics too, but i've already got my downpayment on a raw Rune, which I'll strip a little later down the road. I just need a source to get the old headtube badges.

    ...paint striping is too much hustle... with all the delivery delays thats the last thing i wanna do

    ...and btw the fugly decals wouldnt let me go for another frame ...i would buy it anyway ...just as i said, i would opt for another colour scheme

    ...i just wanted to share my opinion about the decals which dont fit to the industrial look of banshee frames ...my opinion

    Looking at these pictures I think I may have to cancel my order and try and choose another colour. It's my opinion and mine only but I think those green decals on a yellow frame look awful. The picture I have which I saw when choosing the colour was that of a yellow frame with jet black decals. There was also a guy on here earlier in the thread who had one turn up with jet black decals.

    Bottom line, consistency is the key and the customer deserves that. Keith, what's the crack mate?

    Does this look like green decals to those saying its fine?

    One or the other fellas but QC needs to be better than completely different graphics on what's supposed to be the same frame.

    Just had an email back from Banshee. They said that Fluro Runes should come with black stickers and they have heard there are one or two with green stickers and are looking into this.

    That's the party line guys,
    All the best,
    Lee.

    stunzeed,
    I've contacted Cane Creek in regards to the HV aftermarket sales availability.
    Was told an estimated April delivery.

    Cheers,
