    I think I was wrong about the price I paid. I was so happy about the total I didn't write down the individual prices. Subtracting the original quote from the final one, I get $65 for the dropout.

    First impression of the frame (Sans Build):

    This thing is built far burlier than the V1. And it is a far better looking bike than the V1. Glad I went with the Raw as well. Its going to go good with the red blingage that is going on it. Looking at the short chain stays this thing screams manuals.

    Seriously cant wait to ride this thing.

    Schweet and congrats! You willing to let a local dude hop on it for sizing as I assume this is a medium? A guy I know locally as well just got his large V2 yesterday and plans to build it this weekend that I hope to check before getting mine too.

    Looks good and be good to hear how it rides compares to the Spitfire.

    Ride On!

    Including mine, I have now seen the CCDB air mounted three different ways on the Rune, Kieth if your around, does it matter at all how it is mounted?

    Hi team - need some help please.

    Ordering an XL - am 6'4 and around 108kgs.. planning on going the 650b route.

    my dilemma is with what fork to choose. Fox only do a 34 in 650 specific – and a quick search around the web tells me I really want to go down the 36 path.

    So a further search quickly tells me that 36’s will fit a 650 wheel – but am unsure if it’ll take ‘bulky’ tyres (currently on 2.4 mountain queens).

    That’s a question for a different forum so my main question is the 36 Van 180 is an option (not sure if you can shim it) or would it make the front end horrible with an already slack head angle? would it be total overkill? (don't really feel like i'm made to fly.. still nursing a broken collarbone..)

    Bit of a shame as it sounds like the xfusion vengeance would be perfect but not an option.....

    Any help would be appreciated I just want to order the thing!!

    You can fit 650b wheels in a normal Fox 36!
    And the BOS Deville 160mm or 170mm are able to fit 650B

    I have the BOS Deville 170mm and it works just fine! Much better than any Fox or RS!!!
    Just waiting for my ordered Rune V2

    unfortunatly I should not posts images or links cause i didn´t post 10 times...
    Otherwise I could show you that the Fox 36 and the bos deville works with 650b and Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2,35

    Cool thanks for the info would prob look to run some hans on some flow ex.

    Guess I'm mainly interested in the thoughts on a 180 fork in the rune cause I'm leaning towards coil but also thinking 180 won't make the handling that flash..

    So that leaves air... Float or talas? Any owners of runes that use a talas? Reckon you need one on the rune?

    Plenty of people bag the talas and vie never tried one but I use the travel adjust on my e150 all the time. Either way anything gonna be good over that fork!

    This is how the reservoir should be mounted for clearance, best performance and ease of adjustibility. On smaller frame sizes the reservoir of the DBair may hit the downtube at bottom out if it is mounted below the shock at the rear triangle end.

    Looks like an awesome bike guys. Definitely makes my short list of possible next frames.

    Combines my favourite features from the Intense SS2 (slack HA), Spec Enduro (Steep seattube & short chainstays) and SX Trail (rigid) and adds in adjustability!

    Is building one up around a coil CCDB/Bos Stoy and 180mm forks overkill?
    When will the Scythe v2 be available?

    I know how you feel, mine arrived last Friday but we had issues figuring out the FD and when we did figure it out we had to order one from across the Country and it will not be here until next week.

    Once I do get it in though the build should be this.

    Frame Banshee Rune V2 Large raw
    Rear Shock CCDB Air
    Fork Marzocchi 55 RC3 Evo Ti
    Headset Red Cane Creak 110
    F. Tire Schwalble Hans Dampf Vertstar 26 x 2.35
    R.Tire Maxxis Minion DHF Super tacky 1.5 ply 26 x 2.35
    Rims Stans Flow
    Front Hope Evo 2 Black
    Rear Hope Evo 2 Black
    Crankset Gold RaceFace Atlas 22/32/Bashguard
    Chain C-guide
    Chain SRAM PC991 cross step
    Freewheel Red SRAM PG-1090 11-34
    Derailleur/F SRAM X9 3x10
    Derailleur/R SRAM X0 2x9
    Shift Lever/L SRAM x9 2spd
    Shift Lever/R SRAM X5 9spd
    Saddle Deep Red Chromag Trail Master LTD
    Pedals Red Straitline SC platforms
    Handlebar Black Easton Havoc Carbon
    Stem Straitline C Clamp 35mm (Still not sure what colour to grab, either red or maybe black since I have a lot of red)
    Grips ODI Rogue
    Brake/F Juicy 7 with red Straitline levers
    Brake/R Juicy 7 with red Straitline levers
    Rotor/F 203mm
    Rotor/R 180mm
    Seatpost Gravity Dropper
    QR Black Banshee one that came with the frame


    Will be interested in seeing what this weighs when it is built up. The frame weighs a little more and the Fork is about 3/4 pound more then the Manitou Nixon elite I had and the shock probably weighs only about 20 grams more then the old Manitou ISX 6 it replaced. My old Rune was running around 34-35 pounds. I was hoping to build this up around 33 but i doubt that will happen. i should find out next Thursdsay for sure.

    WTB Stryker + Bronson (V&R) or EX1750 + Onza Ibex FR or Deemaxx + HighRoller 2
    Shimano HONE 2x9 Speed 22/36(TA Specialites in silver)/Bashguard Truative
    Chain C-guide V2 or Stinger
    Chain Shimano XT
    Freewheel Shimano XT 11-34
    Derailleur/F SRAM X0 2x10 (Typ: 22-36)
    Derailleur/R Shimano Saint

    Wow...7,6lbs (3,44kg) without shock are quit a lot....the official weight on the website is 6,5lbs (2,95kg)
    you know the weight of the shock dummy? Maybe thats the reason...
