Dream DH Bike

My Dream DH bike build finally came together

It took a few months. I had a frame sitting beside me at work for too long. My Banshee Legend was dying to be built and ridden.

Well the day finally came. Parts had been accumulating for awhile but now they all found a home on my 37lb whip. Here is the finished product.
