Nice! Banshee has really been working hard.

I am looking for a DJ/ park/ street frame...but the Shango is more FR, correct...and it's mighty heavy at 7 lbs or so.

Yeah, with the longer chainstays of the Voodoo, it's more like a trail bike: you get stability at speed, but at the expense of the hyper quick handling of a ToP or MOB - and yes, it's just about as heavy as you'd expect a burly straight gauge cromo frame to be. If you're a singlespeeder, the sliding dropouts are nice. It rides quite pleasantly but it's just a little on the small side for me. I suspect it'll end up in the back of my garage as a loaner/pump track bike.

Still waiting for MattP to chime in about how the Banshee has equivalent construction to Huffys...
