    LOL, yeah those PB peoples, they'll get over the "BUS" theory for 29ers soon I'm sure. Still loving my PP Prime XL, really is a monster truck on 2 wheels. Matthew, if you want to see my XL Prime check out the videos on YouTube in my SIG or my FB page or my Prime thoughts thread. Unfortunately I'm the photographer of any group I ride with, so not much of me riding, just some video footage from the GoPro chest mount. Beginning of this video that's me in the yellow jersey on my XL Prime, most all the rest of videos are me on my Prime.

    BTW, great video from LaRocque, love the song and editing.

    p.s. Anyone got any shots of an XL in the wild?

    Production Prime Photo/Build thread-foto-3-.jpg

    Btw, what should also provided with the frame?
    • 4 Flip Chips
    • 1 screw + 1x hanger for derailleur (only 1?)
    • seatpost
    • seat clamp
    • axle
    • drop outs


    something else?

    Speaking from past experience with Banshee I have always received the frame with hanger installed and a spare hanger with bolt. Sounds like you got what you should have.

    Maybe since you now get 2 sets of drop outs with the frame they don't send a 2nd spare hangar, cost and all.

    Just ordered an XL Prime in black with a DB air plus a set of Fox float 34s - can't wait to get her built up!

    Can we get some more pictures on this thread to keep me going until it gets here?

    Will you settle for a little video?

    When Banshee write that the top tube on the Large frame is 610mm, are they talking about Effective top tube or just Top tube?
    It may finally help a 6' 3'' dude to pick the right size..

    (i've been told that the meassurement may be ETT..)

    Yeah, it's ETT. Actual top tube measurement doesn't tell you anything useful, as angles of top tubes vary significantly between sizes and brands.

    Either way top measurment is useless for FIT.
    Look at the reach ans stack. This is what matters.

    Any idea how to remove the decals?

    I tried to heat with an hair dryer, no good. Nail varnish remover doesn't work either.

    I wanted to keep only the sticker like in the following image, but for that I need an idea to remove the unwanted ones:

    Other possibility is to try to get a black sticker kit and apply them over, if there are black stickers. The ones I have are too small, and wouldn't help much in the top tube and other areas

    Nail polish remover with acetone? I know there's 2 versions, one with and one without.

    That's what people have been using on their Canfield Yelli frames to get rid of the decals on their ano finish frames. And since both brand of frames are made by the same company, Pacific Cycles, I don't see why the decal treatments would be any different to remove.

    As far as was mentioned, those decals are heat transfers and should come off with some heat, maybe try soaking the frame in hot water or using a real heat gun (be careful not to let it sit over one spot for long).

    The more time I spend on mine, and the harder that I ride it, the more obvious it becomes that this truly is an awesome frame design. The guys at Banshee did a great job. I have no problem with a big ass Banshee plastered on the top tube, I ride it with pride.

    Word. This bike loves to be in the air and pushed hard.

    Decals removed, except the logo on headtube, the small logo behind the seattube and the Banshee inside the Chainstay.

    Waiting for a bleed kit for the brakes, and need to finish the wheels. By the look of it, I'm glad I went for a Large instead of a medium (at 5'11). Once I ride it, I'll give further data about the size choice and if it was the correct choice
