Just because it looks similar doesn't mean it's the same. It's a persistent myth.

I'd say it depends on the components. Sette's frames, for example, are generic frames that have their decals on them. You might see a Sette bike built with Fox suspension and an X9 drivetrain, and then see the same frame, but from a different brand with RST suspension and a Walmart drivetrain.

Well it was made in the same factory Wink

They're quite clearly not the same frame though, if you're moaning that some factories build frames for more than one company, then you've got a long way to go.

That said, you'll notice that the front triangles are IDENTICAL, while the difference lies in the rear triangle; the seatstays on the Banshee have a curve inwards, the Kona's are straight. Also, the swingarms are solid on the Banshee. Another fact here is that the Kona Coiler Deluxe was only made from '06-'07 and the Banshee is an '08/'09, so it is possible that Banshee recycled Kona's Coiler design.

Not true, look at the shock mount for instance, the additional gusset underneath the DT/HT junction. They're not the same frame.

Hi guys, some great coilers here. Just a quick question, does anyone know if I can change the travel plates on my 2004 to 2005. It would be so much easier than getting a new frame.

2006 Coiler frame with Fox DHX 4.0
Shimano saint BB and cranset
2008 Boxxers
I am considering selling up to fund an Entourage,but everytime i ride this bike i have so much fun.

Very nice. Would you mind taking some quick measurements from you travel plates for me please.

Here's my 07' Coiler Deluxe. When I got it it was beat. It had mud in the headset bearings. I took the entire thing apart and replaced the rear pivot bushings (bearings were all still solid), rebuilt the fork, reset-up the BB correctly with a somewhat custom MRP chainguide, regreased headset and hubs, and a few other things. The brown front triangle and seat/chain stays were pretty scratched up so some new paint was in order! Looks and rides like brand new now!

Before...
as I bought it for 300.

Now...

Has anyone had good results going from a spring shock to an air shock? I just bought a coiler primo and I'm trying to lighten the rear end. I know that it will never be as light as say an SB 66 but I'm just trying to get it more free ride friendly... I still have the stock fox vanilla shock and its no bueno.Confused
