 Best Bike... it is very lightweight

(MSRP $2692) - The Bank hardtail is the new evolution of do-it-all aluminum hartdails. Built to be incredibly light as well as strong for aggressive styles of riding, the Bank shines as a 4X/dual slalom rig as well as a dirt jumper. With our custom rotating axle positioning system in the dropouts, you can run gears or singlespeed with an extremely clean look. This could be the fastest and lightest bike we have ever created, which makes the Bank one of our favorite bikes to throw around. FRAME FEATURES: 6061 Heat Treated Aluminum Sizes: Small (13.25"), Medium (13.25"), Large (13.25") Current Production Run Colors: Red/White Fade, Green, White Frame Weight: 4.7 lbs (size large) Complete Bike Weight Range: 26-31 lbs (Depending on build and Fork) Oversize 5mm thick headtube (1 1/8") and gusset Compatible with up to 6" single crown forks Accepts up to 8" Rear Disc Brake Rotors Easily fits up to 2.5" rear tire 1 year defect warranty, Lifetime crash replacement BUILD SPECS: Bottom Bracket: 73mm (51mm chainline) Headset: Standard 1 1/8" (1" deep cup compatible) Seatpost: 31.6mm Seat Clamp: 34.9mm Rear Dropout Spacing: 135mm x 10mm (nutted axle & QR compatible) Disc Brake Mount: International Standard Chain Guide Mounting: Standard ISCG Various build options available. Price based on Freeride Single Ring spec and Fox 36 Float 160RC2.

 works a charm for anything you feel like doing. throw on some gears for shredding on the mountain, go single speed for parks or dj's. i have the blue bank and it is fantastic. i have a 26 pound build, and ive never had this much control over any bike ive had. the parts kit that comes with is extremely nice for a complete bike. right now im rollin 9 gears and its great for dj's and shredding down my local mountain. GET IT!

 The bank is a very good all around bike for it's class. It rips on the dj, slamon course, anything you can throw at it. Another great thing about the Bank is that it can go from single speed to gear, it's just what your prence is. The one downside of the bike are the droupouts. On either geared or singled speed the dropouts are the most anoying thing on the bike. It takes me atleast, awhile just to change a tube. Besdides that the Bank is rad. I have ran it in both single speed and geared, and both have worked great.

 This bike is just amazing. Fast light and perfect geometry, by far the best hardtail I have ever ridden and the C.R.A.P dropout system (although I have never used it) looks like it would perform flawlessly and is an great alternative to horizontal drops/replaceable dropouts. Great value for money and looks amazing. I 100% recomend.

 I purchased frame only of the first production models with the 1 1/8 inch head tube. This bike absolutely flies, and feels almost perfect in corners. I was also very pleased with how light the frame was.

If you are comfortable riding a hard tail fast over rocks and roots, and even off drops, this frame is excellent. I don't abuse or buck it, but I've never had a single frame related problem with it. The rear axle system works perfectly, although it takes some fidgeting if you want to adjust chain stay length.

My only real complaint is the paint- it's striong and doesn't chip more than it should, but it faded over 3 or 4 years. They might be using better paint now, who knows...

 This is an amazing lightweight hardtail that caters to the rider who is crossing over from a full suspension rig and wants to do some dirt jumping/street riding. The geometry is less BMX than the Trail-or-Park, which makes it a bit more manageable for a big-bike guy like me. The CRAP rear dropout system works flawlessly and is much easier to maintain than traditional horizontal dropouts.

 Just got done building mine the other day and it rides like a dream. I think their C.R.A.P system would work better with TBC wheelset with a bolt on axle. I have Azonic Outlaw wheels and I have to run a QR because their thru axle is 12mm not 10mm. I have pictures posted in my album

 Just the best hardtail money can buy! Ecentric dropouts are a nice touch and it also means that everything is real neat when running Singlespeed, new tapered headtube gives a bit of extra strength too.

 I rode this bike at the colonnade transition demo, its so amazingly light and the 36 Float goes so well with the bike. Great dirt jumper, even light freeride. Also a great trail bike.

I LOVE THIS BIKE.

 I became like Spoutnik with this bike on an giant airbag. I'm not enough young to make some tricks with it, but actually for me, the Bank is a really good hardtail bike to ride in trails. I really like it !

 I love my Bank. It's a pump track rocket compared to my Giant STP. My use is at pump track, bike park and urban play time with my kids.

 I love my Bank. Built it up with a F100 and full XTR and it came in at 24.5 pounds. Stiff and super light. This bike is fast.
