    It does look a bit weird. Where did you get this pic? Got any more?

    I might consider another Banshee hard tail at some point (riding a Scirocco now).

    At least the color is an improvement. I could not bring myself to like most of the 2006 Banshee colors. As if they allowed a girl decorate a tough bike

    Hi there. Trere`s no problem in the tube. I just saw 3 frames in the shop and it has a 90 degrees angle.It looks a bit strange though

    They did have to change the seattube area on the 2007 model. Pippen the designer was not satisfied with the chain rub on the bottom of the front derailleur cage (common on almost all VPP or parralel link designs) in the small front chain ring. The junction where the seattube is split is pretty cool using some hydroforming at the back.

    The feedback I have heard is that the bike pedals extremely well and feel better than the Blur LT while descending! As well, the XL frame is just a few onces over 6lbs with an Rp3 air shock and seat collar.

    The 2007 models will be hitting shops in North America in the next week or so.
