    i can see where ur cumin from wit the banshee thing , it almost looks like a banshee scream (that sort of style of bike).
    im bought it because, even though i didnt know what frame it was, i knew it was a 6" travel frame that looked pretty gd, was unique, and was only 140 with shock.

    First off,... I think your seat post is backwards,...

    Secondly,... maybe an older TREK? Ugh... maybe not. Kinda looks like the Session 77, but not like the new ones.
    I would go with the Banshee, sounds like a fair bet.

    Banshee has always used RAD square tubing at the headtube junction. My vote would be some sort of Taiwanese off the shelf junk

    what's up with the linkage/pivots behind the BB and is that a scratch or crack below the rocker? 4th pic.

    no, dont worry theres no cracks, the photo enphasises the scratches?
    its this dual pivot thing thats confused quite alot of people, do any other bikes use it?

    It might actually be a Raleigh. The gussets look identical to the 7" travel Raleigh frame I had. The only reason I say it might not be is that wierd linkage by the bottom bracket

    That's not a banshee scream or chaparral, everything is wrong



    It reminds me of an older trek session 77 but the guessets are all weird


    doesn't look like a Raleigh Ram either. it's too burly

    Your running your chain through your chainguide pulleys wrong, and why do you have a whole cassette with no derailleur?

    basically, on a recent trip to the south of france, i snapped myh derailleur hanger and the derailleur itself in half . consequently, i managed to run the chain singlespeed on the cassette, and the chain runs on the wrong side so i can actually gain some tension.
    i think we're gettin pretty close

    Fuji has or had, a line called the Adventure Comp and Comp pro. I have one of the adventure comps from 05', and that is definately not it. The rear is similar, but the headtube is not even close.

    Here is a pic of the 05' Adventure comp.

    As I said before... I had the 2500 and the bike in question is not the same. The linkage is different, the tubing is different and rocker arm is diferent. I might be a pre-2005 Ram but it is 100% not the bike Tacu posted. The Raleigh site has their bikes posted going back quite a few years. I'll take a look.
