    The Rune is a much better descended hands down, and a better technical climber do to the SB66 not being active enough and losing traction. The only thing I give the SB66 the nod in is long sustained climbs like fire roads etc. but not by far. Who rides for that anyways!? That being said, I have had the Rune a while and will be moving on to either the Knolly Warden or Norco Range carbon. I just like trying new bikes.

    My sediments as well. Rode a SB66 for 12 months (busted it 3 times in the first season in 8 months time) and on Rune for 13 months now (only busted once). The Rune is like only 1/8-1/4 lb heavier than my SB Alu was, but can handle more while descending and better trail climber (better traction and no pedal kickback). On fireroads, didn't notice that much of a difference, but suppose SB due to less travel. I usually just put my shock in firmest platform and pedal, both bikes moved about the same. The geometry is better on the Rune as well with much steaper STA for more comfortable seated climbing position. Ultimately, I can charge the trail descents faster and a bit harder on Rune and climb technical sections better due to better compliancy than SB as well.

    One more question regarding the stability in the air. I like my Blur LT, it's playful and poppy and very stable in jumps. The things I don't like about it is its short reach, WB and TT. It makes it a nervous ride when going fast downhill.

    How do SB66 vs Rune compare for jumps? The Rune looks very long on paper and I worry that it would not be as good a jumper as the SB66.

    @socalMX, how about comparing Nomad against sb66 and rune?

    Thanks.

    Both bikes jump well, unless you go too big of size. I am a tweener at 5'10" and went with medium on both w/50 stem and feels great descending, jumping, but pretty much the smallest I could go without feeling too crammed on longer distance pedalling/climbing. Seatpost is jacked to the moon on med Rune with long climbs and have to run dropper post for extra clearance instead of standard due to bend in lower seattube with standard both in my preferred lowered position, have at least 4" of insertion while climbing, so don't sweat it. I give the nod to Rune in air and landing due to slightly stiffer and stouter feeling frame to me despite both pretty much being the same weight. Both bike should be ran with reservoir shocks in my opinion. I ran standard Fox CTD shock on SB66, then Monarch RC3+ on SB, now on Rune and the bigger shock was noticeable better and didn't hinder climbing at all.

    Nice. What static BB height you getting. I like to run mine 650b as well, but taller BB held me off and cost of course. Wish the Pike 160/130 dual position came in black like yours instead of white. I have the new Monarch RC3+ on Rune with rapid recovery like Pike and feels great on bike, now my Lyrik feels slow though.

    I'm still waiting for the frame, can you see the decals on the black on black frame?
    Because Lee from Invisiframe would suggest going with glossy finish, as it won't cover up as much as the matte, and also for a bling factor.

    My Rune is on a saint short cage derailleur with shadow plus. After going over some rocky prt of the trail the shadow plus switch doesnt stay on the 'ON' position. It's almost always a bit off the 'ON' position. I wonder if it's because the chain is too short for the chain growth or something

    Sounds like your clutch needs to be tightened or greased. Look at the insturtions for the XTR rear D. It explains how to tighten the clutch, but the saint doesn't come with the handy built it tightening tool. Good luck and heed the warning about grease. Good Luck,

    Not for the switch opening up like that. If you are worried about chain length look up a bike chain length calculator. On my 26 inch Rune 1x 30 tooth
    - 42 tooth it works out to 53.5 so I use a 106 link chain.

    although now it has a 45mm Gravity light stem.

    Ive also got the correct 27.5" dropouts coming in the mail. Ive been running it with the 26" droupouts in the slack mode. Probably wont even be able to tell the difference..??

    Sorry, i changed them out already last night. I am using a shawlbe racing Ralph tire on a spike Oozy rim. The tire only had about 10mm at most of clearance. And that racing Ralph is a pretty low profile tread design. It was nice with the short chainstay length though.

    Now with the correct drop outs the chain stay is longer but the bb is lower, hopefully I'll be able to get out and ride soon. Lots of ice/snow out still.

    I've been having a Hell of a hard time climbing my rune... I'm in the slackest setting, going to try it in the steepest setting tomorrow. Part of it is, its spring and my lungs aren't cooperating and i switched a 1x10 w/ 32 front 36 rear gearing.

    What setting are most of you guys running in when, equal amounts of climbing, is necessary to get to the downs?
  • 03-09-2014
    jgusta
    30T front, 11-36 rear for me (1x10) that I use to climb everything here in PacNW. Yesterday I did about 4500ft of gain/loss on my ride. I ride it in the slackest setting, but drop fork down to 130mm to steepen the front end and make the climbs more comfortable. I use to not like doing all my riding in the slackest setting due to too much rear wheel bias, even with descending. But, I had a low tuned shock, since then I have been on a mid-tune shock that doesn't go thru the travel as easily and now I can do all riding in slackest setting and feels great on the descents, especially with the lower BB as well. I would try mid/neutral setting first before going to steepest. That is how I ran mine mostly for first year (w/improper low tune compression shock).

    Are you running the correct abount of sag at the rear shock?
    Born on the Shore - The Banshee Bikes Blog: Search results for sag
  • 03-10-2014
    Dirk77
    I'm right at 17mm with the sag, on the fox float x. Most of my riding consists of roughly 1500 to 3000 feet of elevation change in 7 or 14 miles, with equal climbing to the descending.

    Last year i ran a 2x10 (transition covert),didn't do too bad on the climbs. The rune is definitely a better climber though so it's got to be my conditioning.

    I've been snowboarding a lot a all winter and got some riding in. But i couldn't keep up with some buddies at a all on the rides so far this year, They always beat me on the climbs anyways but these last few rides have been flat out embarrassing for me,ha.. i just need to get my ass in gear..

    I've got nice light wheels, spank Oozy/Chris king hubs/Hd front racing Ralph rear,tubeless. 27.5

    One thing is for sure, this bike is so fun on the downhill and the fox float x feals great.. I'll bet the ccdbair feels amazing on this frame.

    Ya you just need to get back in shape... a common challenge this time of year. The first rides are going to be brutal if you try to do the same rides you do mid-season. Luckily here in Utah only a few easy trails dry out right now, and the big rides up in the mountains are covered in snow for another couple months. So we have plenty of time to get back in shape on the easy stuff.

    I have my rune in the neutral setting with the fox float ctd shock, and can count on on hand how many times I've put it in climb mode.

    Not currently, but if you have a local bike shop that you are loyal to, then if they are willing, they should be able to get a banshee from you via our North American distributor Trident Sports.

    Yep. I bought mine without ever even seeing one in the flesh. After reading all about it, comparing it on paper to other bikes, and seeing that the designer himself (builttoride ^) help people out so much on here I was sold. Bit of a gamble, but I love it and am glad I pulled the trigger. Have been able to try out some of the other super high end carbon 27.5 bikes lately, and am still more stoked on my Rune.

    On that note, carbon Rune please?? :) help me I'm lazy.

    edit: by "Yep" I was agreeing with what Builttoride said, not saying yep directly to your question about Utah dealers.

    Yep, me Three.. I cant even add anything to your quote above because its exactly how I feel too.

    But I will add a huge Thank You to Keith for his support from questions on here. It really is great.

    Ill just throw in another, pretty please with a cherry on top,, for the carbon models.

    Just set up my new Rune, great bike btw.

    Got on my first rides and felt really good. Had some air losing problems with the CCDBair CS but could fix it myself.

    But the CCDB is still giving me problems. Im running 16mm Sag (135psi, ~90kg). Rocking the base Tune I was able to use almost all the travel on my hometrail (biggest table 2-3m). Now I'm running 4 Turns HSC and it's ok. Jumping into the landing I have 20mm of travel left and hammering it into the flat rear wheel first im still at 5-7mm left. (It's really not the biggest jump, no steep take off).

    I talked to someone my weight (im 90kg he is ~87) who runs the old CCDB air with the new XV air can. He is running the base tune (2 turns HSC) and 125psi. He can hit everything up to 3-4m drops without bottoming out.

    Did CaneCreek change the progression or something? If I ever have the balls to jump 4m drops I am pretty sure I will bottom out with my settings.
    Anyone running an extra small volume spacer in the new CCDBair XV CS? Cause I am at the end of HSC...

    Keith any suggestions? Others are welcome, too.

    cheers!

    Sounds like you would benefit from adding a volume reduction spacer or 2. It's a 2 minute tool free job to open the shock up and add the spacer ring in there, and it will increase the progession of the shock so that it feels more bottomless. I personally run more volume reduction spacers than the base tune as I prefer to run a bit less damping and have a nice lively feel, but don't want to bottom out.

    Sounds like what I am searching for. I want to have some HSC left when I go to bigger big parks.

    The small spacers look really small. Maybe I'll add 2 of those and see how it plays out.

    Thanks

    excuse me i am from Puerto Rico and im not familiar with lenguage what do you mean by bottom out
  • 03-12-2014

    Using all the travel of the CCDB air.

    ok that what i was thinking so tge volume spacer add stiffness to barrel?
  • 03-12-2014
    Andreas.blub
    The volume redrucer adds progression. So if you use too much travel and are at the end of HSC you can add another spacer.

    There's a how to on the CaneCreek page. It's really not that hard to do.

    Yep it's official, I'm fat and lazy.. the 1x10 ain't working for me. i rode 4.5 miles yesterday, had a tough time. Rode 10.6 miles and 1827ft of elevation change today and couldnt do it. I stopped and rested more than i can count, had to hike a few sections that i normally would pedal up with the 2x10. Got to the top of last climb of the day and my quad muscle was cramping so bad, i barely made it down..

    I did make a few personal best times on some dh sections though.. I'm 19 sec behind the kom on one popular dh trail, the last 1/3rd i can't keep it together, legs burning and huffing air.. the rune is awesome for dh.

    Nope, no money to buy one and not in stock anywhere. That's my next step though. My large rear gear is 36(still pretty big)

    The 42 is a game changer...Smooth shifting & all.

    What front ring? I rode a 30t and a 32t front ring with a 36 rear. I recently got a 42 from WT and plan on moving to a larger front ring.

    When you first go single front ring its hard to get used to. Give it some time and it will get easier as your legs get used to it.
  • 03-12-2014
    Dirk77
    I'm on a 32t front. Ya maybe I'll give it more time, laying around with a fractured shoulder and being laid off from work was not a good idea,this last winter..ha

    I'm gonna order the 42t, in the meantime i think I'm just gonna bolt my granny gear backon the front and switch it by hand for the last 1/3rd of the ride, or when i really need it.
  • 03-12-2014

    yep the 42t is the game changer for high hill and is not maybe as easy as other setup but you will get adaptation i actually came from a 2x10 setup and i will not going back i really like 1x11 better lool
