    Anyone notice that the 2012 Rune, Spitfire, Paradox, and Scythe frames

    are now available on JensonUSA? Says they ship for free in 2 weeks.

    Have you noticed the price increase across the board compared to 2011 framesets?

    The value of the dollar has steadily been falling for the last couple of years against far eastern currencies. Slack's got to be picked up somewhere, I doubt Jay and Keith make enough on the frames to absorb the relative increase in manufacturing cost.

    Wow is right.

    For not much more you can get a carbon Nomad, Mojo HD, Knolly Chicon, Intense Tracer....ETC

    With the bushing issues going on I'm not sure how that price is gonna work out for them.

    If by them, you mean JensonUsa, then probably not very well!

    If their prices suck, then just buy elsewhere. Plenty of places you can find the current colors for much lower prices.

    Check out DropNZone for instance, $1200 for a rune in current colors w/o shock.

    Hey guys,
    Jenson is just getting up to speed with Banshee, so there are a number of errors on the Jenson site that we are working with them to correct.
    Just to confirm, a Rune with a DHX Air is $2000, the Rune with a Monarch 4.2 is $1600 MSRP.
    Thanks
    Jon

    Why such a big gap in price? You guys must be getting a smoking deal on the monarchs.

    Question is if it's the re-designed one or the old model

    Hey guys, the pivot system is a bit different. Still using the IGUS bushings, but now will have a different bushing axle system that should eliminate preloading the bushings. You should be able to just tighten it up and ride, no more messing around with trying to get the preload right. Also, CANADA gets hammered on Fox products, thats one reason for the price increase. Frames are $2100 with an RC4, and $1600 with the Monarch. Prices might not be quite that high at some stores. Also the new axle system can be retrofitted to older models.

    2012 stuff is still about 6-8 weeks out. Dont look for the 29er till summer we were told.

    Curious to see the new axle system. My e-speculation is that they are simply a specific length (longer) preventing the possibility of over tightening the pivot

    if you bought a Banshee from us then the upgrade is free

    should have plenty of kits in a few weeks! You gotta pay the shipping

    I would like to add that Banshee is giving us the kits for free also. I am not sure how many we will get initially so I want to take care of customers that purchased from us first, but if we have plenty I will be happy to send anyone the upgrade kit for free. Banshee rocks!

    That's awesome. I did buy from you folks so many thanks to all the help you and Duke at the shop have given me.

    And to Banshee, Thanks for being awesome - You folks should really find a dealer down here in Moab. It's gotta be great exposure for you and more importantly, it's where I live!!!

    Thanks for your patronage guys! I will post on our site as well as here as soon as we get the kits in from Trident. I believe it is just the Axles. I also asked them to shoot me over some more info and pix about the new system. I will post it here tomorrow if they have anything.
