I think that he's right :thumbsup:

good call on the upgrades. I was looking at a set of the hive cranks yesterday, and they're pretty legit.

the blacklabels are seriously sick bars. nice bend. and there lighter than sunlines!
I can agree with you there. I got some black labels a few months back and they are the most comfortable bar I have tried yet. I was planning on cutting them down but they feel so good they way they are so im just going to leave them.

Sick bike by the way. If i had the money right now I would love to build one of them up.

So since this is kind of an old thread and you must have had some time on the bike. how about a review? especially one comparing this bike to other DH bikes you have tried/owned in the past

i cut my black labels down to 30". they feel spot on now.. i am used to the 29.5" sunlines.. as far as thr banshee.. super sick bike.. I was thinking about getting on the new demo 8 in black.. but now im having second thoughts and thining i should just ride the banshee another full season.. ill just replace the bearings.. dont thin they really even need replacing but i will anyways to stat fresh this year. very low bike, corners better than your bike and carys speed through rough stuff. there is some chain feedback when your sprinting but i got used to it. and it actually workd great when pedeling through rocky stuff because it keeps the bb off the ground and aout of its sag position = less clipping pedals. i run the 165 hive cranks on it now and there sweet. mine builds up to be 38 with dh tires and tubes. with trail tires its 36.5lbs!!! super light for a world cup level dh rig!

I agree about the feeback but its a positive thing. Makes the bike pedal very well. You only have to be carefull with your chain length.
Im 100% sure I will stay at least one more season on mine. First bike I had that has no annyoing issues that keep me from concentrating on riding.
As for trail tires - I managed to get sub 37 with saint brakes and dh tires though weight is not really relevant. The bike is bombproof and thats what matters.
