Banshee Announces Updated Prime, Phantom & Spitfire Frames
I 100% respectfully disagree. It's all about balanced design.

Banshee Announces Updated Prime, Phantom & Spitfire Frames
The ones on the 2017 and newer Banshee's are hydroformed, so formed into that split shape, no weld.

Banshee Overhauls Rune & Releases New Titan Enduro Bike
Definitely plenty of personal preference here, no real right or wrong for sure. We actually did test an earlier photo that had pretty close to your preferred numbers, wanted to see how it played into the ride with the new design. To all of us though, it just felt a bit dead. Didn't have the pump acceleration and liveliness you get from having antisquat. Which is a characteristic we wanted to cary over from the V2's, and one we personally appreciate. I personally really enjoy the levels that we settled on and am really enjoying the new models!

Banshee Overhauls Rune & Releases New Titan Enduro Bike
@fluider: Water bottle space is really just a nice side benefit, definitely not the design driver. Keith has never made concessions in design for something like this, performance and durability are way more important to Keith/Banshee. Trunnion shocks becoming more available and accepted started the KS2 project in many ways, as minimizing rotation to the shock DU bushing was no longer so important. This was always a big part of the previous design and why it was never changed it to accept a water bottle. Priority was over suspension performance vs. water bottle. Trunnion made for new design options, and the ability to accommodate a water bottle. The main drivers of the KS2 link are "load isolation" and "lower center of gravity". So improvements in both strength to weight, as well as performance. This link below goes into more detail. https://www.bansheebikes.com/shock-cage

Winning Bike Check: Richie Rude's Yeti SB5.5 - EWS Olargues, France 2018
@skibuilder: I'm pretty sure the rumors last year, were that the Yeti Fox boys had 170mm Fox36 29er forks, not available to the public custom stuff. Not sure about on the current bike though. Also noticed that there are no colored logo's on the driveside of the rear tire. Makes one think that there is some prototyping going on with that one too, as a normal production DHF would have color logos on that side for the photos. Wonder if it's a new casing they are working on?

Luck of the Irish: Race Day - EWS Round 3, Ireland
How can the article say, "Greg is Ireland's first ever professional mountain biker"? Ben Reid anyone? Pretty sure he is also a leprechaun isn't he?

Inside MRP
I just swapped out the Pike RCT3 on my Banshee Phantom with a Stage. I feel the Stage is a definite upgrade over the Pike which is also a great fork. The stage gives me the same level of mid travel and bottom out support that I liked the Pike for, at the same time the Stage is waayyyyy better at taking the little chatter at the beginning stroke. It just eats the small annoying energy robbing square hits. The Stage is also super easy to tune with all the adjustments being external, even changing the progressiveness of the spring is super easy with the ramp control. Bottom out tokens on the Pike are pretty easy to use, but it is way nicer to play with the ramp control while out on a ride to dial in the feel, or easily change it for different types of trails. I'm also rocking the SXG guide which is great. For the most part you just forget its on the bike because it is so smooth, quite, and just works. It has already saved my chainring at least once this season! Major MRP fan here!
