    New question here. Cove G-Spot or Banshee Chapparal?

    Guys,

    Need some advice - I need a new freeride/trail bike. The reviews of both the Cove G-Spot and Banshee Chapparal seem to be good. They also appear similar in terms of geometry, weight and target audience.

    So which one should I get and why?

    Thanks.

    the Banshee Cheparal for 05' has a black annodised rear swing piece that has been improved a little...and without those little changes it was a kick ass bike and everyone will be expecting it to be even better...banshees have the best warrantys money can buy and will offer endless quality customer service if ever you need it...

    i couldnt be stuffed sitting here for an hour explaining why the cheparal is better...it just is...

    get the cheparal...

    the chapp is a few pounds heavier, the G-spot is around 9lbs, the chapp is around 10.75
    I know in my heart that Ellsworth bikes are more durable by as much as double. AND they are all lighter...Tony Ellsworth
