I've used both but, couldn't tell a diffrence. The BBR is aluminum so it has the advatage of weight. Also the BBr was designed for motocross. With it being aluminum that means it can't handle as much stress. The only problem I see with the BBR is that it is made of a sofer metal. I don't know what the Banke is made of. The Banke was designed for flat track. So there is the possibility of it breaking.
