what's out there
You mentioned this on a course last summer when you were looking at my Mega, so in true recommend what you got style:
The last of the 26″ers, Monarch+ and a bit of a bargain. Very similar suspension design and angles but slightly longer. Mines stood up to some pretty ugly dismounts too.

I got a Banshee Spitfire a few weeks ago and it’s incredible. The Rune is in the same mould but even stronger and longer travel (160mm back rather than 140mm – I’m running 160mm on the front of the Spitfire, the Rune’s meant for 160-180mm but most seem to be running 160mm). BB height and angles adjust by moving the dropouts up and down which is neat. Runs 26″ or 27″ wheels. CCDBair is one of the standard shock choices (also awesome!)

Looking forward to a return to Herts with a load of squish and the associated confidence to overshoot downslopes (which doesn’t half help when you don’t want to come up short on a gap but you’re used to holding back on tables to avoid heavy landings)!Posted 4 years ago
