    Hi Keith/builttoride, I have a question for you:

    For the Rune frames with CCDB air shocks order through your distributors (in my case the French one): the air can that is provided is the regular one.

    Cane Creek (and Banshee) are advising that the XV can will work best on this frame. The XV can should be available in a few weeks as per CC information.

    Will Banshee and/or CC provide the XV air can for their customers? Is there anything planned?

    The difference in performance is very minimal, some customer may slightly prefer the chacarteristics of an XV can with spacer, while some will preffer the more progressive feel of the regular can. Personally I prefer the regular can, but Jon who did testing with CC very slightly prefered the XV can with spacer when he did testing.

    There is no real need to go to the XV unless you are finding the regular can too progressive (not able to use last couple of mm of shock travel on big hits, like flat landings or casing jumps).

    If you decide that you need the XV can, then please contact cane creek directly and explain your situation and they may be willing to help you out when they become avaliable.

    Thank you for your fast reply.

    As per my last couple of runs: I can't use the last cm of the shock, then I may contact CC to be able to check if the problem is solved with the XV can.

    One last thing: I noticed a little pedal bob using the base setting from Cane Creek. I'm currently riding with CC's base setting (I only added +2 clics in of LSC). I've seen that some other riders on the Spitfire thread are trying to eliminate this pedal bob tweaking the rebound.

    What do you think about that?
    What were/are your settings?

    Thanks in advance

    Mines pretty much finished now aswell. I am looking for any recommendations on a chainguide to suit the 2x10 (26/39) drive train though.

    Anyone running one that they can recommend? I have been looking at the MRP 2X

    Sweet ride, but I don't think the Nobby Nics will last long. Been riding them a season and had nothing but trouble - lots of flat tires!
    What is your experience so far?
    I'm riding Flat Alberts on my Rune, both front and rear.

    These new builds are killing me... I put a deposit on a new frame in March and while my dealer was honest that I probably wouldn't see it until June, it doesn't make me not want my bike NOW, any less.

    Yup its a large, I'm 182.88cm fits amazingly. Had my first ride on it yesterday, which was actually a race run. The bike is quick. Really enjoy riding it. Fork and shock are nearly dialed in. The shock settings banshee/cane creek give for the dbair are pretty good. I like a bit more low speed compression since i have some longer ups but otherwise i kept it at their settings. Didn't use all my travel in the fork or shock so I may pull a bit of air out.
    XX1 is awesome, i heard nothing but tires and hub buzz.

    I live in the PNW so nobby nics are fine, They killed it yesterday. If i was going to ride something rockier than I'd snag some Hans Damfs.

    I'll get some better detailed pics of the bike later just need to clean up the hoses and stuff later. Got its first battle wound though yesterday after hitting my hand on a tree.

    81.28 inseam. I have a long torso. Factory bleed on XO trail brakes still but the felt awesome. Rebleeding today. I'd say stick with XTs though. Theyre equally rad. I just prefer SRAM.

    Got me a medium frame in raw with the DBAir shock. My dealer said something about that being the length it'll take for the factory to run out the next batch of frames, here in SE Asia?

    Heh... No, nothing wrong at all! With the current update to the frame's geometry, I don't really need my other bikes. I've sold them and replacing them all with the new Rune.

    Maybe a little down the road, I might buy the updated Rampant too. For days at the skatepark.

    Haha, Iīm a One-Bike-for-All-Guy, too.
    As far as I know the next Batch (expect to arrive in August) are the 2014-Modells. Have you heard of an updated Geometry, for these? Or is it the Fact that the Rune is good enough to handle everything?

    Nah, I'm talking about the current Rune V2. I'm really light(130lbs), so with the frame in its lowest and slackest setting, the bike is more than enough to handle DH days for me. And with it raised and steepened, it'll be good for the long days in the saddle. I change my cassette, wheelset and chain for the different days.

    Ah well, i get you!
    Hmm ... have initially planned to go with meaty 26er Wheelset for the DH/Park-Days and lightish 650B Wheelset for the All-Day-Rides. So far I feel so much comfortable on the 650Bs that I donīt change much. Oh, Iīm riding a Spitfire by the way, but can clearly see your Reasons to reduce your Stable of Bikes. The Spitfire offers so much mind-blowing Potential, the Rune must be a blast

    Damn...where did you order from?

    Ordered mine in March, got it a couple weeks ago from rbikes.com -- great service. Even if you're in Europe or points East, I think I'd rather pay the international shipping cost (or use a re-shipper) than wait six-plus months for delivery....

    This is the first Rune I see with 180mm on the front. How does this feel? Are 180mm on the front to much for the Rune? I run the Rune with a 160 mm Van and I like it. I just think about to buy a second fork with 180mm.

    Thanks

    Hey. I have an MRP G2 on mine and can't get it to rotate far enough counterclockwise to allow the chain to clear the dropped chainstay on this frame. I ended up removing the jockey wheel and running my bionicon guide too. I have heard E13 is a better choice for the V2 as it can rotate further. That's what I'll be getting.

    The Suspension worked flawless, the CCDBAir is perfekt for aggressive ridin in the big mountains!
    The slackest setting + 170mm fork pretty perfect for DH Ridin
    After this pretty hard 4 days, no screws or bolts got loose.

    Looks great Jan and the build/weight is sensational.

    Three quick questions, how tall are you (lots of pole showing)? did you try a L before buying an XL and body weight/pressure in the CCDBA?

    thank you.

    Wow... That weight's not too bad. My projected build's almost 15kg, but I may be off with my weights.

    Damn, I think I spent a whole day in the bikepark with a lose headset. Anything I should inspect very closely? Headtube, steerer tube? What would be a good indicator that the steerer tube (fork steerer) was stressed too much?

    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    To be totally honest thanks to work, I have only managed to ride 20km on it in the last 2 weeks and all of them have been on the road pretty much.

    When I get a bit more time on it (hopefully will take it out tomorrow afternoon for the first go offroad, which has a ***** of a climb) I will post up a bit more about how it feels.

    It is a lot lot slacker than my last Full Sus bike so it feels very different.

    Cheers. appreciate the feedback. I may just go for the Bionicon v.02 guide and cable tie it to the chain stay.

    Na, that's all fine. Simply worried that I stressed the steerer tube too much and my lyrik says good bye on one of those days...

    In my experience, forks nearly always creak before they give up. (this from having snapped 5 pairs of forks)

    If headset was loose, the most likely things to happen on damage front are ovalised head tube (would be apparent once headset has been tightened by allowing moevment forwards and backwards), and steerer/crown interface.

    Well... already checked the head tube, and I hope one day of park riding with a loose headset is not enough to ovalize it. I was just not aware of it as I thought the Lyrik developed some play. General advice? Replace fork?

    The Question is: What could be damaged first with a loosen Headset? Was it only slightly loosen? Iīm not sure if something happened to a Steerer or the Headtube getting much ovalized when the Cups are still in there. I could imagine that the Bearings and the Konus-Rings get the very first Damage ...

    thank you.
    Hei there,
    i went directly for the XL Frame, i compared the measures to my old Large Spicy and after that, the decission was made.
    i am 1.88m tall, but got an inseam nearly 95cm. really long legs, shot upper body, und long arms
    i will have a look at the pressure - next time

    Oh wow. Anyway, I rallied my rune/float 36 a couple weekends ago with the headset a little loose and after getting it tightened up it seems no worse for the wear... I hope. I was a noob and built it with like 1mm less spacer than I needed once everything settled in.

    I have to admit that the headset is the one part at the bike which always seems like kind of an end boss for me. I find myself constantly checking it to make sure it's not to loose. When I'm sure it's not too loose I'm worried it's too tight and that the bearings are wearing down too fast... oh well...

    Haha unfortunately the 5 forks were all before my days at Banshee when I rode much harder... plus at east 2 of them were from bad cases (nose case one, and rear case another) so my fault. I also snapped 12 frames before my banshee days. Not snapped any since!

    Hi everybody I plan on ordering a new Rune. I'm 6'3'' (190.5cm) what size should i get? I plan on using a 50mm stem and 800mm bars. I'm currently riding a bandit xl with a 24.5'' top tube and the seattube is 21'', the seat tube feels to long on my bandit and the toptube with a 50mm stem feels just right. I prefer a smaller bike.
    will the large be to small? Will the 25'' toptube be to long on the XL ? I've heard the bike feels pretty long for its size. Any info would be awesome!

    I'm no expert size-wise but that definitely looks like you should get the XL.

    Personally since you kind of split the difference in the ETT between the L and XL and then say you prefer a smaller bike, I'd have to tend to say go for the L and if you need it go to a 60mm stem to make up the reach difference. Me personally at 6'2.25" with long arms and inseam prefer the fit of the XL where I use a 65mm stem and 785mm bar, but then I suffer the longer wheelbase which is more of a hassle in the tight stuff, but more stable on the fast stuff, have wondered what a L with 80-90mm stem would be like - FYI I'm on a XL Prime with 25.4" ETT.

    I'm at 188cm riding a large, also prefer a slightly smaller frame, just in the process of deciding if I prefer a 50mm or 65mm stem.

    With the low stack height / short head tube it feels longish for a 24inch top tube.

    180cm and I ordered a medium. Comparing the reach between the M Rune and my SM Demo 8, the Rune came out slightly longer and I'm hoping it doesn't feel too long for me. To be fair, I like my bikes really small. I was on a M Wildcard before, but never felt as comfortable on it as I did on a friend's SM Wildcard. I guess what I'm saying is, if you want a play bike, get something smaller and if you want something for all day rides, get the bigger bike.

    Hola Juan,
    From my experience I'd recommend you the L size.
    I'm 182cm and I ordered an M, when I got it, the bike was really small for me. I traded for an L size and now is perfect.

    It's all good, Jalafer. I'm used to tiny bikes and I prefer them. Reach numbers say it's actually a tiny bit longer than the small Demo 8 I'm coming from.

    I just placed my order for a large. I hope i made the right choice. I had a large tracer 275 for a while and that bike felt alright, so we'll see what happens. Thanks everybody for the info!

    Had lots of fun with my Rune in the park. Tested the slack setting and like it a lot, only thing that annoys me is that I'm still riding without a chain guide.

    New to this site, but I demo'd a Rune at the weeknd and decided that it was the bike for me to replace my well use and slightly battered SX Trail. Should hopefully pick it up at the weekend.

    Have gone for a large black one with a Cane Creek DB Air because I didn't like the Fox CTD shock.

    Will be built up with the parts from my SX - 36 Van RC2's, Thomon stem, Answer 780 DH bars, XT 783 brakes, Sram X9 1x10 drivetrain, RF Atlas cranks, Easton wheels and a Reverb.

    Saw a black one on the trail yesterday. It really is a mean-looking bike. It just looks fast, more so than the other bikes in its class.

    I have been riding the Rune V2 with a Fox Talas 180 and it rides perfect, I have it for 6 month now and wonīt change a thing on this bike, is the perfect bike, I only lower the fork to 140 when the climb is really hard, if not I go up in 180
    Cheers

    Yes, a Stinger does fit on the V2-Bikes, but is maybe a non-optimized Solution as Chain-Device. You have to be aware that the Pulley is very low/exposed between the CS-Yoke and Chainring.

    Very nice Runes! Enjoy!

    Yes, ir fit, but you have to trim the top fin because interferes with the low direct mount of the front drilleaur, I don't know if there is any TRS dual without that fin on top, but mine got it, but no big deal to make it to fit

    Thanks for the reply. Are you using the RS or the TRS+? How much of the top fin do you have to take away? Could you post a picture of your setup? That would be great! (Specially interested in the position of the plley and the fin!)

    Agreed that it is a non-optimized. I have install it and found that Stinger would not work properly with Rune V.2, suggest same situation with Pryme and Spitfire.

    Chainguide woes

    FOod for thought, if you go w/ a clutch rear derailleur, ideally mid cage, there really is no need for a lower chainguide.
    Also 10-spd shimano rear derailuers work great with 9spd SRAM shifters.

    My chainguides are all coming off!

    Great FM - somehow my same Thought after debating which Chain-Device would work properly for Months now ...
    Iīm in Need to Upgrade my old XT 2x9 to 2x10 and will go the same Root: Shadow+ and a simple small Piece of rubber Water-hose zip-tied close to the Big Frontring. Not as a true Device, but just a little more Tension to avoid Chainrubb at the lower Yoke when in the Small-Ring.

    I don't think you'll even need that. For rough terrain the upper guide or front derailuer, lower taco or bash guard, and a mid cage clutch is perfect.
    Enjoy- I know I am! So nice to never hear the sound of chainslap.

    @el_guillyt Thanks for the pictures... can you say how much you did take off from the fin... in mm? Hard to tell from the pictures but that looks like you had to do some work...

    So your advice would be to skip the chainguide and simply get a shadow+ rd which would remove _all_ the hassle related to chain slap and the chain coming of from the front chain rings?

    @MindPatterns you'r wellcome, hard to say how much, we didn't mesured, just put it on place and mark, worked for me and my friend.

    I'm also running shadow+ don't mind about to much in terms of chain retention, it is the quietest bike I ever rode

    Hey Mate - I get what you are saying.
    Well, I donīt know if this "Issue" appears on the Prime or Rune. but on the Spitfire the Chain will rubb the lower Yoke when you are in the 22er Front and 11, 13 and 15er Cassette-Gearing (Mid-Cage-Derailleur). More so when the Flip-Chips are in the slack Setting. Iīm in the neutral, so it affects only the 11 and 13er Cassette-Rings. Therefor this rubber Water-hose avoid it and is more Kind of Protection plus Device. Ok, I could taper it, but this Rubber is very strong and shows no Sign of Wear after one Month of use. Replacing it is easy, cheap and quickly done.
    Iīm running this, without any other Chain-Device, Tacco, Bash or other Stuff, successfully on my 2x9 Gearing and I will do the same with 2x10 and Clutch-Derailleur.
    Apart from that Iīm with you. Get a Clutch and rid of the lower Device - you donīt really need it, regardless of 1x10 0r 2x10.

    I used to have the Straitline Silent guide on my V2, but even with that guide I would still get bad chain slap. It was very annoying, so I sold that and now have the MRP AMg chain guide a 32t ring and a Shimano Zee rear derailleur, but still got chain slap as the chain sits so close to the underside of the chain stay. So I made my own version of the C Guide and it has eliminated pretty much all of the under side chain slap

    Ah I hadn't considered that part- and it is a tight fit running a chainguide up against that lower yoke.
    Mainly I really dislike the current chainguide standards that wreck your chainline and require crank removal for any adjustments. So I really don't want to run a chainguide anymore.

    But after today's ride I am putting my lower chainguide back on. The bike doesn't really need it, but runs quieter with it.

    Yes, thatīs why I have filed down the ISCG-Tabs a bit - just to fit Chain-Device and Dual-Rings without "irregular" Spacing. Now the only worthy Thing to have is a small Anti-Chain-Suck-Plate and Tacco, just for the Case ...


    My Take of a simple and efficient C-Guide. Itīs not sexy looking, but works:

    I was just interested in your Chaindevice, the rest I have seen already.

    Ahh ok. As you can see - no other Guiding except that Hose, and some Bolts in the upper two ISCG-Tabs to prevent Chainsuck. But this is going to get a better Solution as soon as I have the Possibility ...

    I dont know if its the same on the rune but I have an e thirteen trs duel guide not the trs + and it fits my spitfire v2 without any issues . I think the differance is that it doesnt have the extended shark fin only a much shorter version the low direct mount mech fits with it fine

    Man, all this talk about chin guides. Glad I went 1x10. X9 crank, removed the spider, slapped on a 28T Bling Ring and I have all the climbing grunt I need. Running an 11-36 paired with an X9 clutch derailleur. Works great. Im using an MRP 1X upper guide and I am thinking of going to this Universal Cycles -- MRP Micro Chain Guide to quiet down the chain slap on the yoke.

    Also 10-spd shimano rear derailuers work great with 9spd SRAM shifters.

    My chainguides are all coming off!
    That's exactly what I am running, with a single ring and a direct mount E13 XCX guide. Perfect setup, simple, lightweight and no chain drops. I currently not even running anything on the chain stay as there is very little noise.

    I'm getting some noise and clunking on the frame, even with a guide on and a chainstay protector... What's everyone doing to quieten the bike?

    What rear derailleur are you using? Some SRAM Type 2's start to clunk when the T55 gets too tight. I thought my frame was getting a clunk and it turned out its the derailleur.

    Still on a short cage 9spd X9. Was thinking of getting one of them bike specific wraps and just covering the entire length of the chainstay.

    Hi Keith I just got my Rune last week. I was wanting a CCDB-A but the last stock at the distributor in my country was one with Fox CTD. I decided to take it as I didn't want to wait for couple of months for next shipment thinking to get a CCDB-A separately.
    My question is do I need different mounting kit for CCDB shock ? Or can I use one installed for Fox? Thanks.

    I still wait for my frame, but I need to replace reverb hose.
    Can someone tell me length of seatpost hose/cable (with mount under saddle) to fit large frame.
