Well, PB has got the first look exclusive, but nothing said we couldn't grab the pics to show over here, so for those of you who don't visit them here they are. And just in case you don't remember the Geo, that's at the end - geo was tweaked a wee bit from these numbers due to feedback on here, but these're pretty close. Man I can't wait to get my hands on this Bad Boy, it looks absolutely sweet, uber stiff and with the short stays should be very fun like it's little brother the Paradox. X-post from the 29er forum, thought you guys might be interested in the future :D

LyNx thank you for sharing.

Love it or loathe it, the truth is 29ers represent yet another avenue of bicycle progression.

Hats off to you Banshee. Looking forward to the final product. :thumbsup:

Its a beauty thanks for sharing. Gonna be holding my breath to see this thing in production, because I have been so tempted to get the paradox but this might bring me back to full suspension again.

I think it's just a sleeve over the axle for whatever reason. Damn that thing is awesome looking. A 29er with a possible 66 degree head angle!?!? I wonder how it would ride with a 66 HA

As far as I remember, Keith said it is a aliggnment part for when they're welding it all together, so not a normal a xle. Although the axle that will be offered is a Ti 10 or 12mm AFAIK, 135mm or 150mm rear spacing.

Actually it is to keep everything straight during heat treating.
MartinS strikes again with another good answer. Yup, in heat treatment if a frame is not clamped to a jig or has spacers to constrain dimensions, then they tend to deform in the heat a bit. The braces just lock it down to keep alignment approximately accurate, so that the alignment table guys don't have to stress the frame by making major realignments.
