I'm thinking I might go ahead and get a banshee. One problem, no one sells them here in Texas...well one guy does and he sells them at his place but I'm thinking about buying the complete kit and having my LBS put it together. Couple of questions, I love the morphine but I think it might be too much bike for me. I also love the scirocco but it's only about $100 cheaper than the morphine so I'm figuring go for the morphine. Also, does Banshee sell these kits directly from there website? I emailed them early so I'll wait tomorrow and see if they email me back. It says the Morphine is $1612 as a complete kit and its the journeyman kit but when I try to find a morphine complete kit online the prices seem to jump up $1000. I'm assuming they are giving you different parts with other stores kits? Also, one finally question, how much does a LBS charge to build a bike. I understand that everyone is different but whats a rough estimate? I'm hoping I can get a Morphine or a Scirocco shipped to my house and put together for under 2grand. One more question, would it be cheaper to buy the frame and build it myself?
