It's about damn time!!!!

Well after ordering it on ebay close to 3 weeks ago, it finally came today! Oh and may I add it was being shipped from a bordering state!!

Anywhoooo here she is, my 2006 Banshee Morphine frame...





She weighs in at 7.3 lbs so my build will probably be right around 40 lbs . I still need to order a few odds and ends so I'll probably have her built up at the start of next season.

Oooooh...Ahhhhh....a few Q's:

1. Who was the seller that hosed you for so long?
2. Is that a One-point-five head tube?
3. How much travel or axle to crown height is that frame set up for when looking for a fork?

I could research it, but I'd rather just have you tell me.


Nice frame, man!

Oh yeah my bad forgot specs...

It's pretty much going to be built up with these parts. This is an old pic so there are some changes.


Chelboed:
1. mxsuzuki*** can't be too mad at him...I got the frame almost at 50% of retail.
2. No, It's just a beefy 1 1/8.
3. It can be set up any where from 100mm-200mm of travel. I will be running it with 150mm.

Very nice! Now I know the way you are going to be riding that one it will require the most advanced, toughest wheelset available!

Everything and anything that is ridable, this is going to be my ALL around bike. She's sure going to be lonely in the garage.
I think the frame was a 2004 Hardrock Comp.

Because I am such a weight weenie I think I will be stripping the frame of its paint and drilling some speed holes tomorrow. But honestly this frame is almost disgusting because of all the gussets and junk...the disk tabs are .75" thick!!
