This is my trail bike, 2013 Banshee Prime.
130mm Cane Creek shock
150mm Formula 35 fork
American Classic Smoking gun wheelset 40mm rims
2.4 Ardent in XC mode
2.6 Nobby Nic rear and Magic Mary front in train mode
GX Eagle drive train

This is 6 years old now but still modern geo. Just slack enough.
Rides like a 160mm bike, love it.

In XC mode

Nice, I love my Prime!

Great bike and fits me really well (ride an XL at 6’7”).

780mm DMR wing bar, 50mm stem.

Great bike.
