Mythic Viento, Stunning Canadian hard tail frame,I brought this from Freeborn a few weeks ago brand new and as was informed it is the only frame in the UK badged as a Banshee as they usually come in under Mythic brand due to the Banshee name already being registered in the UK so unique in that sense.

I have built the bike and ridden it once for approx 2 hrs so in absolutely stunning as new condition.

Comes with original seat clamp unused. Size small frame but these have quite a long top tube at 22.5"

£325 + postage, collection welcome. They are currently on special offer at Freeborn for £480 reduced from £649 so gives you an idea of the quality of this frame.

If required I can include the FSA orbit extreme pro headset ( Again one ride old ) for an extra £25.

nfo – Mythic Viento

Mythic’s morphing geometry allows the Viento to be built up as an x/c or marathon hardtail with a 3 or 4 inch fork or as an all mountain freeride hardtail with forks up to 6.

Constructed with Mythic’s new custom lightweight RAD tube set, the Vientos chassis is light and solid for blasting through rocky sections and Mythic’s exclusive internally ribbed seat and chain stays deliver your power to the ground with authority.

The Vientos wish bone seat stays incorporate Mythic’s unique shock block configuration to soften the ride over rough and sketchy terrain. The Vientos minimalist cold forged dropouts and asymmetric head tube showcase Mythic’s attention to detail.

The Viento can be built up from weights as low as 22lbs.

4 sizes fit riders from 54 to 62+

Cold forged asymmetric hourglass head tube – Light weight yet strong enough to accept up to 6 forks, compatible with deep cup headsets.

Custom triple butted and hydro formed custom half RAD top and down tubes – Unique tube shapes for a stiff and light weight front triangle, integrated hydro formed gusset for strength at the head tube.

All mountain cockpit geometry – Comfortable riding position for all day epic rides.

Internally ribbed box section seat and chain stays – The internal rib increases the lateral stiffness of the rear triangle without compromising vertical compliance. It feels light and efficient because energy robbing frame flex is eliminated. The rider feels more confidence negotiating tricky technical sections.

Cold forged dropouts with replaceable hanger – Lightweight, compact, 3D design fits all disc brake and derailleur models.

Shock block wishbone seat stay configuration – Shock block bends reduce vertical shocks and vibrations while the wishbone increases lateral rigidity.

Morphing geometry – Frame angles and bb height are compatible with forks from 3 to 6 inches.
