    Wouldn't the Saints be a little bit heavy (both weight and look) for a bike like this?

    Probably, it's either those or soe new Shimano LX triple ring I have laying around.
    Can't quite decide and will most likely change as it gets ridden more.
    Any suggestions on a crank setup?

    Cranks: I just think that the current Hollowtech 2 LX is a great value for money. If you want XT or XTR, I am not going to argue.

    I like SRAM shifters and rear deraileurs, but that is just personal preference.

    Went ahead and placed a pair of new Kooka cranks i had laying around.
    Just bought a scale so I'll weigh the whole set up and take a few pics.
    It's been a great bike thus far and I really enjoy the HT and the Pyre FS I have.
    Now if only they made a 29er I could jump on that bandwagon too!

    Wow, it looks great. Mine is supposed to arrive sometime in the next few days... I only ordered it before Christmas!

    BTW, do you think you could fit an 8" rotor in the rear triangle?

    Me podéis escribir en ingles que ya utilizare el traductor

    La Banshee Viento también me gusta y quisiera saber que tal se comporta con una RS Revelation por su geometría

    Good afternoon

    I am of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

    English and I do not have it quite difficult to read and to translate by the difference of sense of the phrases and I lose myself and I cannot follow all the commentaries that you put

    You can write to me in English that already will use the translator

    There is somebody could explain to me as the Banshee Pire behaves so that I am interested in her and is a possible candidate to buy it, also serious the Titus Motolite, to have supplies of them.

    The Banshee Viento also like and wanted I to know that so she behaves with RS Revelation by his geometry


    Thanks and a greeting from Catalonia

    Banshee says:
    Viento can be an x/c or marathon bike with a 3 or 4 inch fork or an all mountain freeride bike with forks up to 6”.

    Maybe you could get in touch with rzozaya1969 in Spanish. He has a Viento and probably knows Mexicans who ride Pyre.

    Aspirina, PM me and I'll tell you all about my Viento and Pyre. Love them both, but never ride the Viento anymore, so its for sale.

    Both are excellent bikes!
