Spitfire 3.2. The geo is quite different from the v3. It also comes with float x rather than dpx2. It'll be very interesting to compare it to my v3 rune.
Nice
I looked on their website but the pic still had the Spitty with a dpx2

On the Banshee website there is a template for a rear guard. It's quite good at keeping all the crap out of the linkages and is almost unnoticeable when fitted.

Looks like a fun bike!

Purdy...but those crank boots look like good sandstone grit collection devices.

Just what I need! I'll check it out. Thanks for the suggestion!

It's a hell of a fun bike to ride. I'm hopeless jumping but this beast just propels in the air with the slightest effort.

@Isaakk made a few for me - if you ask nicely he might have a few knocking around. If not, I have a spare

Gosh that's a fair bit! Might try DIY milk carton first and go that way if it fails.
I think Isaakks ones used plastic folders and cut on a Cricut printer, and mines lasting really well.
Could make 4 from one folder I think using the template on the Banshee site

Nice looking rig, I like the anodised finish. Are you gunna trim that steerer ?
I've seen some nice plastic packaging that CO2 inflating lifejackets (crewsaver and Hutchwilco) come attached to, would be good for a mudguard.

Cheers mate! Yes will trim the steerer once I work out the best bar height.
