Banshee RUNE vs Cove G-Spot...??
again here is Andy from Germany searching the ultimate DO-IT-ALL-BIKE.
Coming from a Trek Remedy I want to upgrade to a more stable AM/Light FR Bike that can handle everything from tours to longer uphill climbs to rough trail descends with jumps and moderate drops up to 5". I know the Remedy can handle itself most of this, but I really want to rely on my bike in every situation and therefor I need MORE without suffering too much on the uphill. Bike-parks will be seldom on my list but it should not crack at some attempts too....:rolleyes:
At least the banshee RUNE tends out to be the most capable bike around for that purpose. The only drawback of it seems to be the "bushing thing".
On forms lists I had the cove G-Spot which seemed to be very close to the RUNE but I could not find many reviews from G-Spot riders. Therefor I forgot to think about it. Maybe this Thread will waken some of them to give advice to make a final decision. Unfortunately here in Germany both bikes are very seldom used, so I cannot ride them before.
I am 6.2 and weight 180lbs.
I only want to buy the frame and I can buy both for nearly identical price. The 2010 G-Spot and the 2010/2011 RUNE.
What are your suggestions?
