    New FS frame from Banshee?

    Anyone got a clue about this?
    Is it a Banshee after all?

    Definitely a Banshee, can see the head badge and the tubeset is classic Banshee. Looks like a 29er, I'd wager a long travel replacement for the Prime

    Sweet!! The front triangle looks IDENTICAL to the front triangle on my Paradox. Except for the shock tunnel.....

    uh.. If that's the future i'll miss the beautiful linearity of actual KS link.....going in the mass of rotating links, hoping is not for just accommodating a water bottle!!!!!
    I'd rather like a similar to YETI design, keeping direct swingarm push and bottle room.

    Had to turn the pic a quarter and ... whaaaaat?!?? New frame? Whaaat? Waterbottle in the frame ... whaaat? Internal cable routing ... whaaat??
    Well - I think I like it a lot, as it still has many of the Banshee trademarks!
    Thereīs still interchangeable dropout-option, external cable routing, plus added internal routing - well done.
    Not sure if this can be called KS-Link anymore, because the shock is now linkage-driven instead of direct driven by the rear-triangle. The good thing about vertical shock design is that super low center of gravity and yep ... room for bottles, swat-stuff and what not. The lower mini-link looks much shorter than the previous one and the complete linkage/bb-area screams durability and stiffness.

    Certainly interested to know more, but at first glance I prefer the looks of my Prime. Time will tell...

    Wow I need more info... I was thinking about selling my Warden to buy a 29er and the Banshee could be THE one!! Just need a raw one :P By looking at the rear suspension, do you think it will be plush? Pedal well? If both answers are ''yes'' and the geo is not too extreme, I would be really interrested!!

    Where this picture's coming from?!

    I'd keep the Prime at actual travel.
    if more travel will be added, I hope happens in a new model.

    Hope it is somewhere between 145/160mm rear and 160/170 front. Raw, 150/160mm of plush travel, climbs relatively well and normal geo (nothing too low, long and slack) would be a dream come true for me!

    I hope we'll have news soon cause I've got some bikes that I want to demo and if I fall in love well... I will not wait a year or two just in case!

    Oh man....can't wait to see the specs on this! I'm all for keeping the current travel unchanged but I wouldn't care if they added 0.5" extra. Even doing lift runs I've never felt like I needed more travel.

    Intriguing. Can't say I'm excited to see a linkage-driven vertical shock, but if Keith designed it, my expectation is that it will pedal very well. I've been wondering what Banshee has been cooking up as it has been kind of quiet for a while. I was thinking a Prime with a 1" increase in reach and maybe the ability to take a 3" tire could be my last bike. But we will just have to wait and see what this latest creation is!

    Wow I really like the new look of this Banshee bike! Make it as shiny as the Paradox!!

    I am not sure anymore about a 29er... Pretty sure I would looove the Bronson and I just saw a really cheap new frame so I'm excited but would prefer to own a Banshee than a ****ing Santa Cruz like everybody has! Don't know what to do..

    You guys talked about the Legend 29 a while ago and it's still not on their website! Only some xl pre production frames so I'm afraid it could be lonnnggg before this new bike is available to us!!

    I also like the grey but if I buy a Banshee, it got to be raw!! I already have a grey warden but wanted a raw frame so bad!

    Not too familiar with fox fork but I would say that it looks like 150mm max? Also a 60mm (?) stem so doesn't sound like a real big long travel enduro bike... maybe 140/150mm and doesn't take more than 29x2.5''? That tire seems to be pretty tight already.

    New FS frame from Banshee?

    Hmmm....I wonder if that shorter lower link results in a shorter rear-center at sag. The reason I sold my Spitfire was because I always felt like the back end was too long in relation to the front center on my large, I kept having to force myself into the back seat.

    I'll be the nut who is wishing it's kind of a BC Prime addition, like Rocky Mountain does with the whatever.
    145/160 and a higher BB. Good to see it has a plastic/rubber cover for the shocks lower mount. When I first looked at the pic, my first thought was mud basket. (If you lighten the photo you can see the rubber lid)

    Nice, I'm saving my $$$ already.
    29" long travel was on my wish list before the Paradox got released but I'm very happy to see this making its way to reality finally.

    On the Banshee FB page comments, there's hints of a 9/16 release... maybe we're only 12-24 hours away?

    In some parts of the world it is already 9/16 :-) , I guess the guy in the video timed the news embargo to local time ...

    Yeah Rune can take 26" wheels if that's your bag... so can darkside still. We don't want to be one of the big brands that tries to control your bike setup... just ride whatever the hell you enjoy most!

    Great stuff Keith.
    Pity my legs are too short for a 29r and the Rune is probably too much travel for my needs.
    Will the Spitty be updated too?

    Has anything been mentioned about the internal cable routing system?
    Is there a formed channel for easy routing or do we need a magnetic tool to guide the end out of the hole?

    edit: Ah there's a rather large opening at the bottom end of the downtube that they could easily exit.
    Seems that it could get rattley when things get rowdy according to this review.

    That was unfortunate, they missed a cable guide that holds things tight to stop rattles.

    The cable routing is very easy if you take the fork out... just feed through from the back above the BB below the bottom link, through the shock cage guide holes and then up through the downtube. There is a huge hole in the headtube so you can easily guide the cable through by hand before snugging it up with the internal cable routing guide. I've so far done this a bunch of times without having to rebleed a single brake... which is nice.
    With the fork in it is a bit more fiddly, but still doable. The fact that you don't need to do this job very often means I'd recommend just taking fork out and servicing headset at same time.

    Cool, sounds like not too much of a faff.
    I tend to fully rebuild my bike annually so would have the fork off anyways.


    Interesting how they managed to get those conditions at Craigieburn when it's winter here

    Ηi Keith,

    if I understood correctly the release suggested that for a mullet 27.5/29 bike the way to go is Titan with a 27.5 wheel at the back . Since you can't shorten the chain stays and get the bb higher with the dropouts wouldn't be better to have a 29er fork and wheel added to rune v3?

    Another question that just came up my mind, has there been a prototype that is acutally a scaled down legend (like santa cruz and specialized have done in past years)?

    I'm not proposing mullet is way to go at all... that's personal preference. I run my titan 29 front and back. Mullet is an option tho. Mullet isn't all about shorter chainstays either... for most its just about more butt / tire clearance in steep stuff. I'd argue that balance of mullet setup on titan is better than rune due to longer chainstays to offset longer fork.

    I was checking geo of new V3 FS models and besides the not so long TT I noticed also much longer than average chainstay.
    any reason for that or is just imposed by suspension design?

    Titan's chainstay is 3.6mm longer than the prime for example. While the BB to front axle for same size titan is 54mm longer than the prime. Forget the marketing bullsh#t around short chainstays that has been nlasted at you... its just marketing unless you are a slopestye or 4x rider where short chainstays actually help. It is how the chainstay length fits in to the overall geometry that gives the bike it's balance and ride characteristics. The chainstays don't feel long when riding it, it feels really balanced. We tried shorter chainstays... we went back to longer ones because it rides better. There is a reason a lot of pro's have custom long chainstays on their race bikes.

    good to know
    in any case I wouldn't be the one to critique the choice as
    I can't tell difference in my previous 29 and actual 27,5 on my Prime.

    This is SO true. I used to be one of the short CS believers but that all changed when I tried a Canfield Riot. The short CS were fun at first but after a few runs I realized had very little stability at speed. At low speed the front also tended to wonder more on climbs. Yes, you can wheelie in the parking lot a little easier with short CS's but on the trail there are too many compromises. The Prime CS's feel pretty darn perfect for the intended use. I recon the Titan being more of an Enduro slasher benefits from a few more mills to keep the stability in check. Can't wait to see what's in store to replace the Prime or Phantom.

    Really intrigued by the new designs, they look awesome to me. I have loved my Prime for the past year I have ridden it. It's been my favorite bike even compared to most of the modern carbon bikes (Ripmo, Rallon, Switchblade, Rip 9, etc.). I am curious how the new Titan compares to it in terms of climbing and playfulness? I am not opposed to more travel but wouldn't want to lose too much climbing prowess.

    I may come back to Banshee for this. I loved my Prime. I have a SB5.5 that looks awesome, but itís dead until you hit mach chicken. My Prime was just fun. Although the new Enduro gives me a feeling Iíve never gotten from the Big S. Got a little while before Iím ready to make a move, anyway.

    10mm difference in length. Same v2 dropout kit as the current frames.

    I rode my Rune all day, and tried to not think about the new ones, and how much I would want one. That didn't work so well... I really want one lol

    I am wondering if I can hold out for a Prime, or if I should just have a Rune and a Titan... I mean... that makes the Rune my XC bike right?
