    banshee ?'s + post morphine pics

    will the morphine dropouts take standard qr?
    (basically im cheap and want to run my current wheelset til i destroy it)
    can i run a 113mm BB or do i have to get a 118mm BB?
    (again being cheap cause im stripping parts from my old HT)
    i would like to see some builds if any of you guys ride the morphine.

    thanks.

    yes you can use qr, just wouldn't recomend it with the horizontal drop-outs. I don't know about the BB, I run Diabolus cranks. Here are some pics of my set-up

    thanks.
    my real ? is: will the axle that banshee incl. with the frame fit a q/r hub?
    if it helps my rear hub is a crappy shimano stock disc hub that came on my kona.
    is that a junior t or super t on your morph?
    what size frame? just wanted an idea of size built with a dc but im pretty sure i gotta go 14" cause im short.
    looks alot like the setup i want but i want to go with a longer single crown fork to save a bit of weight and keep my turning radius, plus 6" is enough travel for me.

    Here are a couple pics of my morphine and how i had it set up at different times before i sold it. It was a nice bike, my recommendation is to run a 2.5 tire no matter what, the ride in the woods with a small tire is totally different, shitty to say the least. Just run a bigger tire and its a killer do it all hardtail. As for the axel question, the one that comes from banshee is for shimano hubs, so if you have one (which i think you said you did) then your all set. Have fun, its a nice ride.

    I don't know about the hub for sure, I never have really messed with rear qrs,but I think it should. It's a jr.t and the frame size is a small. And the e.13 rocks big time, had to do a little work because of the diabolus bb cups, but is well worth it.
