    Official Banshee Legend 2015 Thread

    The german distributor just posted information regarding the 2015 Banshee Legend:

    The revamped geometry (everything gets really long and slack) shows that Banshee seems to strives away from the "shore"-ready geometry (short, quick and nimble), now that they have the darkside. This is a good thing, in my opinion.

    No 650B option though, which personally I'd love to see.

    Post some pictures if you see any in the wild!

    so, why spend the money retooling the forgings and not redo the rear triangle to update with the replaceable drops like the rest of the line? seems like a half attempted refresh.

    Well. I am kind of certain that 99% of people would run 150/157mm rear anyways, so wy bother?

    I'm currently selling my MKII to get my hands on a MKIII for the next season. I'm riding a Rune in L (I'm 177, long legs, loving the feel of the L frame - been a Medium rider for years) and currently thinking about getting a XL Legend. I'm thinking about putting a 10mm direct mount on it (On Off Stoic stem). What do you guys think?

    I'm thinking if you are considering XL DH frame @ 177cm height they better start producing XXXL Legends for 190+cm riders...
    I think you would be just fine on a large.

    around 84 inseam here. You must have a seatpost that looks like a radio tower judging your inseam.

    I solved it switching to an L frame.

    Thanks for the thoughts

    OK, reviving this one. Contemplating an XL frame. I am ~188 cm tall and like the fit of my size L spitfire. The reach between the large spitty and the XL legend is similar so thinking XL is the frame for me, but as I'm on the cusp between sizes I'd see if anyone had experience... Thanks all.
