Hey sorry to revive this thread. But i just bought a Banshee scratch frame(essentially a Brand-X Scratch). I needa know what mount do they run on the rear. Is it IS Mount?

Scratch got dropped by Banshee a couple seasons back - and the excess frame stock was sold by the factory to Chain Reaction Cycles who rebranded them with their own brand label

Scratch is an outdated, over built frame - kinda pointless?

the geometry was actually very sweet, but the frame weight was insane, it was a pain in the backside to build up as the fitment of hubs, cranks, etc. was weird, and it was so heavy it would probably give you a hernia if you tried a big hop!

the best use of a Scratch was built as a freeride bike with a big fork, big tires, gears and heavy duty parts, I would take a Scratch over a Morphine any day if I wanted a burly FR hardtail!

however, for DJ and Street / Park much better, more modern alternative frames now exist....

Totally agree with hampsteadbandit. Well, i'm riding a Scratch right now, you can check out my profile. Using it mainly for street, but gonna change to a NS subbie soon, as its weighing about 14kg right now. Absolutely love the geometry and the build though. It feels totally bombproof, the geometry is perfect for long travel forks. 2.8" rear tires can be fitted for 26 wheels, and 3.0" for 24wheels.

Oh, and i think Chain Reaction Cycles ran out of stock already. I bought my piece from there.

In the shop we have the raw Amp frame for $599 CAD and I think the painted ones were $10 more. The Amps a sweet frame, Iv had 2 though as the designer seemed to over look the fact that the downtube on the short frame dosnt clear many fork adjustment dials. Banshee was great to deal with though and gave me a long frame which solved the issue.

Amp's a sick bike. Probably as sick as the Scratch. Tried my mate's one. Despite the longer chainstay compared to most steel street frames. Its just so easy to flick! Too bad i gotta wait a long time before the next shipment here in Singapore.
