Thanks for the responses, i actually went ahead with this bike from Jenson;

http://www.jensonusa.com/Banshee-Prime-GX-Jenson-Bike-2016

I decided i really shouldn’t spend $5,000 on a bike and i made $3,000 my max.

Once i found this bike i couldn’t believe the price for the build on it. I couldn’t find anything really bad around the internet about Banshee.  I haven’t read things “bad” about any particular brand anyway, so to me it all comes down to type, build and price. Maybe looks and color come into play too…

I wanted to go All Mountain and because i’m 6’1″ and do a lot of XC the guy at Jenson thought i should go 29er. My Hard tail is a 27.5 so this will be new to me.

Anyway, I’ve got some time to try it out and decide if its the one or not.

Feedback is appreciated.
