Banshee's getting in on the 29"-wheeled DH bike extravaganza, but they're going about things a little differently with their prototype Legend. Rather than coming out with a full range of frame sizes, they're starting off with an XL bike, one that's said to be designed specifically for taller riders. With 190mm of travel, a 63-degreee head angle, a reach of 477mm, and a wheelbase of 1299mm it's certainly not short, although those number are starting to look less and less extreme as more companies expand their sizing.
The bike pictured here is a prototype, but there are plans in place to bring it to production, albeit with a few final tweaks, including increased tire clearance. For now, try not to drool as you scroll through the images of this stunning machine.
