Field Test: 3 Full Suspension Mountain Bikes Under $3000
We have had owned 3 Whytes and love them. Great designs great quality and great ride. The only thing I can criticize them for is the low bottom bracket and could do with slightly shorter cranks but that's it. Had my G150s for 4 years now and it's been brilliant.

Don't know why but I have always hated the look of the V10. Looks even worse now!

Inside Stanton Bikes' Full Suspension UK Manufacturing
This is the exact reason why I love metal frames especially steel ones. These frames are put together by highly skilled individuals with love and affection. They ride great and will last a lifetime. Give me one of these over any carbon frame. Sticking bits of floppy carbon cloth in a mould doesn't even come close to this!

Review: The Banshee Legend 29" Rewards Aggressive Riders
Having owned the Banshee product I will only ever have love for the brand. Mega strong frames and great designs. Even had the pleasure at the time of speaking direct to Keith Scott to get some help and advice. Not many major brands you can do that with!!

This is pure bike porn to me! Beautiful steel hard tails. Except the BTR, you can keep that ugly duckling!
