    i would go with the morewood, they are very nicely built. i highly doubt you will break it. super strong bikes that are hand built. also Richard is an awesome guy!
    I like to ride bikes fast.

    My vote goes to the rampant. That little bike absolutely rips, and it's quite tough

    Banshee rider Simon Cardon (sorry if I spelled it wrong Simon) finished 4th racing a Banshee Rampant in a downhill race in france against full on DH rigs.

    The greasable bushings used in the rampant and rune are pretty durable, and very easily serviced. The designers intentionally put a rune through hell just to see of they could wear bushings out

    Here is some more info on the rampant http://bansheebikes.blogspot.com/search/label/Rampant
    Just scroll down... there are pics, video, a magazine review, and some drawings of the pivots.
    Finally if you need more information just email Banshee and you can talk to the design engineer of the frame.

    I will assume both are available in Scotland easily. I'll be the outcast & say Morewood. It's a SP & is proving to be as great as the Heckler. The Morewood will be a sweet do all bike as far as the warranty dont kiss N tell.
