Geometry hasn't changed since the introduction? I am after 2015 frame.

5'11, Large seems perfect, 438mm reach and everything. Longer front, short rear, what more could you ask for.

Dont happen to live in victoria australia? I have one for sale at the moment (to many bikes/damn lifes responsibilities).
Im 6ft and the large is a perfect fit

Unfortunately not but thx for the offer. I imagine it won't be too hard to sell it.

I am about 78kg/170lbs, 350 or 400 spring?

I am leaning more towards 350.

I'm 180 and ran a 400/450 dual rate. Would go 400 over 350 at your weight.

Yeah, i ll have a chance to try 400 first, i ll probably take it if sag is close to 30%.

Hi there guys!
I'm currently building up a darkside for park/fr/dh days, it has the 150x12 in 26" at the moment, and I'd like to go 27.5 in 150x12. Do any of you guys wanna sell theirs or swap with my 26dropouts?
Cheers guys

You're about a month late, not that it matters now anyway. I ordered them here: mountainlove.de but i have to warn you, it took them about 3 weeks to arrive, since thy didnt have them on stock

Hey guys,
can any of you make a comparison between a IH Sunday and a Darkside?
Is the Banshe a better pedaller, how does the geo feel compared to the Sunday, is it a heavier frame?
I've posted this in the MTBR forum as well, but different forums - different crowds. Big Grin
Currently on a Sunday with a -3 angleset, but am looking at changing it to a Darkside as no longer riding pure DH, i'm leaning more towards park riding and some enduro (but no races). Smile

Havent ridden a Sunday, so cant really compare.

For a DH bike it does pedal very well. I have fox 40s on the front and a rockshox vivid on the rear with 26 inch droputs and its always in slack mode.

No pedal assist/lockout so pedalling up hill isnt really my Darksides preference (ie no enduro, I only use it for shuttle days.)
