Banshee Paradox XL

$1250 CAD
2009 Banshee Paradox $1250 OBO Selling my very sturdy and capable Banshee Paradox. This is a super strong and stiff hard tail that rolls over anything and has awesome power transfer to the pedals. Slightly relaxed geometry mean this bike is great on long rides, climbs and handles well on technical and steep terrain down. Banshees have an internal rib in the seat and chainstays that translates to a strong, no flex frame that corners and transfers power tremendously well. Some cosmetic scratches on the frame from loading on a bike rack, but no dents or dings in the frame. Fork stanchions are immaculate. Serviced regularly and only ridden part time as I have a big bike for the rough stuff. I would prefer a local pickup/deal.

Arbutus Racks - Interbike 2011
Wow, what's with all the negativity? Geez... I have seen about a dozen different companies in Interbike coverage who are redesigning direct mount triple clamp fork stems or thin profile pedals... is each one getting ragged on for coming out with a refined design on the same idea? It's a tray mounted vertical bike rack... is it a 100% unique and totally new idea? No. But there is lots about it that is innovative and well designed. Is anything in the bike industry totally 100% new and unique? Probably not... Does Rat Racks make a tray rack? Yep they do. Does that mean they should have a monopoly on that type of design? Nope. That's like saying that only one company is allowed to make a drop in flat tray rack. This is a small CANADIAN company who have designed a rack based on their experiences as riders and developed what they want to see in a rack. The big features are the lack of frame contact, sturdiness, ease of loading, and the great visibility it gives out the rear of your vehicle. The bikes facing different directions isn't a gimmick, it's so you can see out your back window and rear view mirror. I always wonder about our capitalist society when people complain about something new that comes to market that delivers an improved product to the consumer. Competition spurs new ideas and also stimulates existing companies to keep improving their products. Disclaimer: Yup, I know the guy who designed the rack. I've also loaded my bike onto it, shook it, and felt how sturdy the rack is. I've driven behind him down a bumpy road and observed how stable the rack is loaded. I've also watched a car with another 4 tray rack drive down the same road and observed the rack wobbling like crazy. I don't own one, but if I had a 2" receiver hitch and needed this type of rack... I'm sold it.

Arbutus Racks - Interbike 2011
The bikes don't face the same way for exactly the reasons you stated. They don't cover the brake lights down low and because they face out, it leaves about a one foot clear channel down the middle so you can see and your third top brake light is visible. The Y design is very well thought out.

That was one of the best rides I have had in a long time... Nothing like big bike bombing down steep lines on a spring night.

Jump Ship - Course Build Photos and Video
I just checked out the barge... There is a short roll in to a large gap on the first jump... the jumps are big... if the Riders are tricking all of those, then this is going to be pretty damn crazy. You really should plan to attend this if you can.
