 Great DJ / Street / Park / Trials bike. Ive done it all with this thing except DH. Ive put together a 30.2lbs amp that cant be stopped. Ive also managed to get a RAW finished frame so its got a primo look and performance is off the scale.

 This thing is a beast. Weighs nothing yet exceptionally stiff and solid, you will take notice right from the first bunnyhop. Use mine in SS mode for street/ park/ dirt/ 4x/ basicly anything that doesn't require rear suspension, it feel's very comfidence inspiring and also FUN!!

 Best dirt jump bike I've ridden! Ridiculously light and such nice geometry with a super low bottom bracket. The bike is so easy to flick around making tricks seem basic! The internal headset and horizontal drop-outs are a plus too. Overall super solid bike that handles everything I can throw at it! The color is rad too!

 this i think the lightest DJ frame being 4 and 1 half pounds out there ,and its super strong mike Montgomery tail whip a thirty foot drop at cranksworks on it. it has a super low stand over so its easier to do tricks like one foot and no foot cans. if you get bars that have a large rise on them its possible to turn down from my opinion this is the worlds best dirtjump frame frame

 Super fun DJ, street/park bike. really durable. Funny when i first bought it people thought i was riding a prototype.
Fun to progress on.
I find it easier to ride than a bmx for spinning

 This Frame is a beast! super stiff and the geo is soooo perfect for dirtjumping! low standover and BB makes it corner like a dream! It's also super good looking, got mine in raw and it looks sick. love it! Big Grin

 These frames are sick and light! they have just the right amount of standover and can beat any bike down a slalom course. This frame also comes in a sick silver color that doesn't get scratched up

 Light as hell. incredible on dirt jumps. BB is a little low with a lowered fork. decent park bike. Need to watch for fork clearance as well

 This is pure Dirtjump dream, as for street or park, no dice, I found it far to offset in balance, the front end is ultra light, makes it lift way to easily.

Banshee Amp (MSRP $0) — The amp is tight, light and ready to take flight! With 400-425mm chainstay with horizontal dropouts welded to light but stiff internally ribbed chain and seat stays that back end of the frame is slammed, which makes manualing a breeze, and rotations in the air a walk in the park. The Amp uses a 7005 T6 custom hydro-formed triple butted tube set with integrated gusseting for high strength with minimal weight. At the front you will find a precision machined head tube, compatible with lightweight zero stack integrated headsets to keep the weight down and the front of the bike low. What does all this mean? It means that the frame feels perfectly at home high in the air at your local jump spot, and can accelerate out of the gate faster than any other if you feel like racing some 4X. It means that you can ride a bike that can take the abuse that you throw at it, but only weighs 2kg (4.4lbs). All in all this bike will be more nimble, faster, stronger, lighter and easier to do tricks on due to super low standover than any other bike out there.
