Yeah, the weight will be interesting. This looks like a bike I'd be very interested in. I don't race DH any longer, and I'm having a hard time justifying owning a full-on DH bike based on the rides I do these days. The Darkside could easily convince me to sell my v10c!Oh that does look quite fun! full length seat tube! Wonder what the weight will be like.
Nice! Can't wait to see the geometry numbers.A few more shots of it in Orange here: Banshee Tests 650B Downhill & Other Mountain Bikes, Developing 100mm ?Trail? 29er
