Legend MkII production

I just wanted to share with you all some photos from the factory showing progression of the MkII legends.
In there photos you will get an idea of new forged parts which are stronger and lighter than MkI (we are still waiting for some shock basement parts, hence no pics). You will also get a first glimps of the (steel) samples to check tolerances of what will be the new titanium pivot axles and bolts, that will come as stock with all Legend MkII frames.









Production is right on schedule right now, as we just wait for the last forgings to arrive, then it will be all systems go for January shipping.

Siiiick
what those 2 rods on the swing arm??

Keith Scott said...

haha those are just there for alignment of first rear triangle to help set up the jig for all future frames. Don't worry, they will not be there when your frame arrives! haha

I have been waiting for this post for some time. Looks amazing and can't wait to ride one. It really motivates me to do the winter training in San Remo ;)

Great Job at making it harder for me to pass my exams (they start late January ;) )

SOOOOO GOOD!

Parts are going to coordinate incredible well for Geronimo, especially with the white/red/black paint scheme :)

Ryan said...

I'm pretty pumped about this - I'm having a hard time concentrating at work because i'm thinking about getting out on this bike to ride.

Straitline Components said...

Where's the kickstand option you promised? Who would want to lean it against anything and ruin the paint job?

Keith Scott said...

Don't worry Greg, they will be added later along with the bell, basket, reflectors and streamers from the handlebars.

ismael said...

omg, looks awesome, when are going to be available those frames??

(haha, i saved the money enough to get mine)

can we do a pre-order soon?

Keith Scott said...

Get your order into your local dealer or distributor, the frames will be shipped in January.

Straitline Components said...

why would i want streamers keith? what purpose would they serve?

I liek the paint scheme, full outrace, good job.

Ryan said...

Streamers are great for wind tunnels. i learned that one from Trek World Racing.

I had never heard of Banshee bikes before until i meet one of the riders on your testing program, Jared Wilson in Whistler. Jared talked a bit about the bike itself by really let his riding do the talking. We did some runs together in which he really did rip me a new one. He said the bike was confidence inspiring and i could tell, it seemed coming into rock gardens and root sections jared would find something to pop off then just deal with the consequences later, When it came to jumps he would just send it. He really is a great ambassador for banshee bikes and has gotten me excited about getting a lengend

Geez, wasn't the Legend to be released in 2008? Banshee has missed so many deadlines with the Legend that I will wait to see one in my BS before I get too excited. I was going to buy a new frame in 2008 and waited for the Legend, then I waited again for the Legend in 2009, now I am going to buy a Lapierre now that they are available in Canada.

Keith Scott said...

There was never any plan of releasing the Legend in 2008. We had hoped to release it for summer 2009. But instead of rushing it out, we took the ammount of time we felt necessary to iron out any bugs and test it more fully. I have no regret in doing so.

Norbert said...

Anon - i was in the market for the bike in early 09 and preordered it counting it will be in the summer 09 date, than it was delayed into jan. That's only one delay and I can wait considering the package. I could also get a lapierre as I have great prices on them but currently owning a previous gen and my friends owning their newer bikes I'm a bit dissapointed. They look amazing but every bike they make has some strange thing to it that bugs the crap out of you (no mid stroke support, to wide cs that you bash you legs into etc.). Also the headquaters CS is rather bad. Unless you really trust your distributor you may be pissed as every time they redirected me to my local dist even though he was an obvious moron.

As for the deadline these photos are for a me proof that everything goes as planned.

Any geometry improvements on the MKII?

Steve said...

Yep, it's lower, slacker and longer than the Mk1. Check the geo figures chart - head angle hasn't changed much but BB has dropped a bit and the wheelbases and cockpits are slightly longer.

Can't wait to be back on a Legend, my Mk1 was such a planted bike.

sweet! finally in production, been waiting a long time now, any ideas on the MSRP?, those are the only colors that u guys will be offering? no raw anymore?.
I'm loving my Pyre, I sold my DH rig already I need a DH bike for next season!

Keith Scott said...

MSRP will be $2999 with RC4 shock option. These are aproximations of the colours we will be offering, but we will post photos of the real deal on the blog before they start shipping.
