Designed to essentially be a 29-inch version of the Spitfire, Banshee
's first Phantom prototype sports 100mm of travel. That's likely get bumped up into the 110-115mm range before the bike goes to production, but they're still testing things out. Up front, it'll be designed to work with up to a 140mm fork for some serious trail bashing. Head angle will be around 68-degrees, and bottom bracket height will be in the mid 13-inch range. It has stealth routing for the dropper post (hooray!), which will trickle down to Banshee's other trail and enduro bikes in 2014 as well.
