Just finished building my Banshee Paradox 29'r which is to become my cross country training bike. Huge shout of thanks to Jay, Keith and all at Banshee Bikes for setting me up this awesome machine. It has been built with the Banshee supplied Journeyman build kit except for a few small upgrades including 777 bars cut to 750mm (just cannot bring myself to ride those short little twigs that the Lycra boys use!!), a chain device called a 'Widget' built locally here in Brisbane Australia, and Maxxis Ardent 29 x 2.25 tyres (thanks to my new sponsor Maxxis Tyres). I am really looking forward to hitting the trails on the Paradox with some of my training buddy's who all ride the lightest available carbon fibre bikes but since seeing the Paradox have all of a sudden become very interested in it!!!!

Just one note Jay, the black anodized colour is just fantastic so how about the same in the Legend MKII with high gloss black stickers that have the white outline - would be sic!!!!
