A great frame built in the same factory as kona
The factory standard componants and hardware of Halfords
I got the Carrera Banshee when I first started riding about 3 years ago It was a great bike for somone like me who was just getting into DH/FR. As I progressed I found the bikes componants like the front forks (sr sun tours) and the rims were just not up for the 8ft drops i was sending it off which was fair enough considering the £500 I paid for it. So i maid a few up grades, a pair of Halo combats and a set of marozcchi junior T's and boy does this thing perform the frame has stayed stiff at every drop, kicker and rock garden I have thrown at it. If it was just for the frame this review would be 10/10. A truly great all-round bike whether you're into all-mountain or the fast and furious DH runs. I truly recommend It!
