    Is it Still worth buying a Legend?

    The current legend has been there quite a while... Is it still worth to buy? Will there be new model coming out? Mk3? Any KS link DH bike to come?
    What do you think?

    Certainly worth it. Awesome bike.
    Bike still performs well, so how much "better" is a new model going to be?
    The used market has some great deals on 2011-2013 Legends.
    Strong frame that is easy to maintain, hence the used bikes can be great deals.
    I plan on riding my 2012 Legend for a few more seasons.

    I love my Legend. On a 2011 and have every intention of riding it till it dies. Then, I will probably buy a new one.

    min is also still running strong after 3 seasons... still a great bike, now matter what the others are showing up with - the legend is still drawing more attention than a brandnew s-wors demo, and performance is still up to date... could imagine that i will still be riding that same frame in 2020

    There is no need to change the bike. Keep in mind banshee is normally ahead of the rest of the industry when it comes to design and geo choices. This bike was one of the first bikes around that fits our current definition of the modern DH bike. The Darkside isn't technically a DH race bike but it will be pretty slack and if it goes downhill anything like my Rune then it'll be a worthy DH bike.
