    Banshee Scream or Chaparral?(what size too)

    I found out today I can get really good deals on banshee frames through the LBS i work out. I want to build the frame for freeriding, but I just started out riding so I'm not going super large yet, the biggest thing I have done is like maybe 10 feet. I already have a SC bullit which I plan to use for XC. I like the chaparral because its a lighter frame so I won't kill myself trying to pedal it on trail. If you could give me the pro's and cons of both frames I'd appreciate it. Also I'm about 5'11 so should i go for the medium or the large?

    If you are rock'in a bullet for xc... go Scream for a fun bike. I love mine.. and I still ride it on XC rides.. 52lbs of love!!! It is super stable for doing anything and will give you tons of confidence to up the ante!!! I really like the Chappy's, but you'll probably grow out of it too quickly!!! Good luck!!!

    I got a sweet deal on a chapp frame so I'm going with that for now. I think once I progress to a stage where I'm constantly doing 10 foot+ drops I will upgrade to a scream.
