A closer look at what goes into the frames and parts we ride with.

After the Taipei Bike Show and Sea Otter I decided that it was time to build up a new bike for the summer. I had a chance to get a close look at a lot of products in Taipei and I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to use on my bike. Also being in Taiwan and working out of the factory where Banshee Bikes are made I had a unique opportunity to take pictures of my bike during production. I had also lined up a couple of factory visits that fell through at the last minute. Lots of companies do not want pictures taken of their facilities or manufacturing processes. Thankfully I was lucky enough to be invited to the factory where Funn Brakes are made in Taichung, Taiwan. And I made the trip to Vancouver Island to hang out with Greg at the Straitline factory.

Check out my bike being built up from Taiwan to British Columbia,

A first glimpse of the first ever production Banshee Spitfire.

The Banshee Spitfire is creating quite a stir amongst aggressive trail riders out there who want a lightweight, low and slack singletrack shredding machine. The Prototypes (one of which which was shown exclusively on Pinkbike last summer) have been used and abused and tested hard, and all feedback from that, plus feedback from many bike forums has been taken on board and used to refine the design. This is the result...

Banshee Legend MK1 review Banshee Legend MK1 review
Source: acair422.pinkbike.com

The Legend MK1 is Banshee’s first frame to foray into the downhill race scene, but I wouldn’t call the frame beginner's luck. Many recall the burliness of Banshee in past years, via models such as the Scream and Morphine. Since then the boys over there have been busy combining the knowledge of how to build a strong and stiff frame, while applying some weight savings techniques resulting in a definite contender.

The Banshee Spitfire is a new frame that Banshee is adding to their line-up next year. It will be a 5" travel aggressive trail / enduro ripping machine with adjustable geometry and a specifically tuned VF4B linkage to offer the rider great pedaling efficiency as well as active suspension under braking.

Banshee Scythe Review Banshee Scythe Review
Source: Ryan Kuhn and Action shots by Vince Boothe

The scythe is an enduring symbol of the harvest. It is also a symbol of death – the Grim Reaper of Christian lore and Kali, the Hindu Goddess of Death, carry Scythes. When it comes to a bike built for launching one’s self with abandonment and railing at eye-watering speeds, this is a bit unnerving. Fortunately, [L=http://www.bansheebikes.com]Banshee’s[/L] take on the Scythe is a lot more like the useful tool of yore – it is sharp, simple and durable. You can reap your just rewards.

Midway through the 2008 season, the DH race beast sunk its fangs deep into my blood. I suddenly had a burning desire to get on the track as much and as soon as possible. However, the limiting factor was I had dumped all my cash early in the season on a new “all mountain” ride more apt to the single track of my hometown of Rossland, B.C.

Well, we have abused ourselves, bruised our bones, scarred our limbs, and thankfully enough, but to no surprise, the Wildcard is still standing tall. The Wildcard has been hiked through 4 feet of snow, pushed through 2 feet of mud, rode through the pouring rain, and is still begging for more. Here's the full review on the Banshee Wildcard and the parts that made it go.

Banshee Throws a Wildcard in the mix - Preview Article Banshee Throws a Wildcard in the mix - Preview Article
Banshee Bikes has been a big name since the 'huckfest' we knew as the late 90's. There were more Morphines, and Screams in the average garage than McDonalds wrappers on the passenger seat. After the 'huckfest' died off, big bulky bikes were turned into Pop machines, and Parking Meters. As the Industry shifts, Banshee Bikes continues to be up there with the big boys, especially with the creation of there Downhill, and Slopestyle bikes. The Wildcard is Banshee's answer to the growing love for Slopestyle bikes in the industry, and it is definitely a head turner.

The Maple Ridge Cycle bike club is up and running again. Following a successful run last year, they’re back for an encore. Started at the beginning of last riding season by Troy and Rob (owner and manager of the shop), it gathered almost 100 members and had anywhere from 20-70 people out for each and every ride. Of the 100 members, approximately 20 of them were ride leaders, and the majority of the rest were kids aged 9-15. They ride an area with 21 trails and can tailor groups to any and all riding abilities. 72 rides later they hosted a year-end wrap up with special guests Ryan Leech and Jay Hoots. Free burgers, hot dogs, and pop rounded out a great year for the kids and their family and Ryan put on a fantastic trials demonstration to keep them entertained even through a torrential downpour.
