Front triangle fresh from welding ready for T4 and T6 heat treating.
Front triangle bottom bracket and pivots.
Here are Prime front and rear triangles fresh from T4 heat treating. The complete frames will go into T6 on Thursday and we should have assembled frames next week.
The drop outs are adjustable and interchangeable = geometry options. Making the Prime versatile right out of the box. (Currently 150x12 and 135x10 options, if the demand is great enough for the new 142 spec we will look into offering it.)
The rear triangle has come together nicely and will give the Prime a distinct look, while remaining 100% Banshee.
While the 2D paper drawing of the Prime gave me a good idea of what the completed frame will look like. I will go one step further and offer a more 3D view ...
The Front and Rear triangle fit together nicely.
And for all of the Banshee fans and 29er fans I will leave you with a rough idea of what the frame will look like once complete. Love it or hate it, that is going to be one sexy Banshee.
Next week we will have an assembled frame and Keith will give some of his Engineering insight into the Prime. If you have any questions for Keith feel free to ask them in the comment section of this post.
