Romancing the Shan

New hardtail day plus+


  • + 1
 nice one man. I have to say that I miss my spitty a lot. The guy who bought it is still rolling around on it and having a blast. I'm a huge fan of the banshee bikes and glad to see you with one to build. Awaiting a nice build video from ya!

What were your thoughts on the Shan set up? I've seen lots of people with a bigger volume tire up front and thinner out back. in fact mine is 2.6f and 2.4r right now. I've even run a 27.5 x 26 on my old surge. I love the fact that you're experimenting. Can you describe the feel?

 Cheers mate! Yes, this combo makes a lot of sense to me for a number of reasons. The front stands up better on a 29er with 120mm of travel.. tried a 650b with 150 but I felt it dived excessively. Also the fatty on the back absorbs the bumps nicely. The shan is such an awesome hardtail for a number of reasons too..I wasnt expecting the boosted and pressfit bb to make so much sense but it flex, instant drive at the crank..awesome chainline. I could go on

 Cheers Obee. I agree on the drone handy for segues though and mine is super basic so cant get too crazy with it. Enjoy the snow!

 Thanks Si! Like any good hardtail the devils in the details and u can tell the production privee boys took their time with this one. The chainstays are shaped,flattened and even twisted agressively.. provides vertical compliance without any noticeable side flex.
