    New frame! Banshee Scratch

    Hey, this is for thew people who may not have seen it in the DH forum. (x-post)

    Hey guys, well I sold my Kona Stuff frame to replace it with A Banshee Scratch. I wanted a smaller feel, and horizontal dropouts. I just got her built built up today. Pure sickness. I also got a Shadow Interlock halflink chain. Well, now the Scratch joins the Morphine! Anyway, heres the pics. Tell me what you think. Oh ya, its a 12".

    Actually, now that I look at it, the chain is on backwards! Thanks for pointing that out.

    The fork is 100mm travel, not that huge. Its all the parts from my Kona Stuff. But, yes, in the future I will want a shorter fork. A 80mm gold label.

    The chain was just ordered through my LBS, but you can order them from www.danscomp.com if ya want

    Thanks for the replys

    Hard to compare since they are setup totally different. But the scratch manuals like a dream. It is awesome. Just having it a week, my manuals have improved alot. I love how it is so small. I wouldnt set a morphine up for street, just because the smallest is a 14" and I would rather have steel for street. Jus tpersonall preference tho. From kona stuff to scratch, I cant even feel a bunnyhop difference, despite the scratch wieghing a few pounds more. It's smallness makes up for it. Banshee has a killer warrenty. I would definatley look into either one.
