I have a scream and Tested the Aline Park.
My scream is 10X better. For me anyways.

Having never owned an A-line or even ridden one it's hard to say. But I do own a Scream and they are much more than a souped up hardtail.....or maybe they are. My one in it's current build is certainly no lightweight but shit it flys and it'll get you through anything and it seems to pedal well too. The amount of times I've fallen totally short and had big arse casings and ridden away from them is too many to count, it always seems to save my arse!! They are hell strong and just love punishment the more the better infact. I've owned mine for almost 2 years have raced it hucked it crashed it thrashed it in every kind of weather and still am yet to do any of the bearings or pivot points as they're still mint as. If the A-line can do all of this and do it better without failing then it makes for a hard decision. But as far as the Scream's go they are a fantastic rig just make sure you have a FOX 5.0 in the rear, the swinger just didn't seem to cut it

And it's really easy to do big ass wheelies on tup

The scream is the beefd up version off the 05 stinky's.They maybe damm ugly but they are increable strong and won't break.But the Aline has a better suspension design and they look nicer.I'd say go for the aline they are better and ride nicer.

Banshee all the way!!!

people have said the banshee is heavy but a-lines are like 47lbs so they ain't light, and they are noisy f*ckers too! they are good though and the spec is decent

dude, get an a-line. my freind has one, and yes, its a beast, but they are amazing bikes to ride. i love his. but if your gonna be doing more jumping, then the banshee. but the A-line kicks butt for anything DH, hardcore freeride and massive drops.

Not true. I have broken 3 of them now. They do hold up better then the A-line but they will break. Everything will break, it depends on how much punishment yo put it through.

well this is a useless descussion b/c everyone who owens a banshee will say theyre better and vice versas for norcos

but banshees could handle more punishment
and for weight then u need to lift a reel banshee cuz they really arent that heavy

I do not own a banshee, and I said I like them over A-lines

bansheeair do you have pictures of any of these broken frames? I'm not calling you a liar but that seems like alot of broken screams, obviously your doing some insane freeride on them but what actually caused them to break? I'm interested because I'm a big guy and I bought the banshee because it was the strongest bike I could find so I find it interesting you have three broken frames.

I am not giving an opinion on which bike is better, but just to add to the discussion:
I have a friend that broke a Banshee Scream frame. He was about 190 lbs. and did it off a 3' vert, 8' horiz, drop/jump to flat. (I think it broke around the lower pivot point.) Banshee replaced the frame by warranty through the LBS.
