    Have been following this thread lately, (mostly picture browsing), but has it been mentioned why Banshee decided to switch from black to green on the yellow frames?

    Modified LG1+. For the heavier stuff I will change back original taco with lower slider if needed. But seems like there is no need for that. Using the Shadow+ derailleur.

    Did Banshee ever mentioned the Yellow Frames having Black Decals?

    Prime-Frame, as an Example:

    ...fair point ...they never did

    ...but as a soon-to-be owner of the yellow version im kind of regretting my decision to go for this colour ...looks fugly with green decals, to be honest ...i was hoping, that its possible to remove all the decals (except for the main one) as the test bike previewed at vitalmtb looked like... simple, clean, beautiful ...the decals make the frame look cheap in my opinion

    ...however, as someone said earlier in this thread, decals dont ride, so i can live with that ...but dont tell me youre not more happy if your bike looks nicer

    So, strip the paint and do it to exactly what you like? The bike companies can't provide designs that will appeal to everyone. I love my Demo, but couldn't stand the colours available at the point I bought my frame, so I stripped it. I didn't let "ugly" graphics stop me from buying a bike with a geometry that appealed to me.
    I'm not a huge fan of the new graphics too, but i've already got my downpayment on a raw Rune, which I'll strip a little later down the road. I just need a source to get the old headtube badges.

    ...paint striping is too much hustle... with all the delivery delays thats the last thing i wanna do

    ...and btw the fugly decals wouldnt let me go for another frame ...i would buy it anyway ...just as i said, i would opt for another colour scheme

    ...i just wanted to share my opinion about the decals which dont fit to the industrial look of banshee frames ...my opinion

    Looking at these pictures I think I may have to cancel my order and try and choose another colour. It's my opinion and mine only but I think those green decals on a yellow frame look awful. The picture I have which I saw when choosing the colour was that of a yellow frame with jet black decals. There was also a guy on here earlier in the thread who had one turn up with jet black decals.

    Bottom line, consistency is the key and the customer deserves that. Keith, what's the crack mate?

    One or the other fellas but QC needs to be better than completely different graphics on what's supposed to be the same frame.

    Just had an email back from Banshee. They said that Fluro Runes should come with black stickers and they have heard there are one or two with green stickers and are looking into this.

    That's the party line guys,

    stunzeed,
    I've contacted Cane Creek in regards to the HV aftermarket sales availability.
    Was told an estimated April delivery.

    Rune does Sedona

    The bike totally slayed the trails at Sedona today. So much, I had to take it out twice on two totally different rides in the morning and later in the afternoon. This bike loves railing and romping up/down chunk and chunder I must say. Very much dig it here!

    Hey all,

    First up, I'm loving the new Rune! But while I like the Float CTD shock for AM trails I find it lacks the plushness I'm looking for when hitting the gnarlier Shore trails here in Vancouver and for occasional days in the Whistler Bike Park. I'm thinking of getting a coil shock to swap out to for those days, in particular a RS Vivid coil, but am a bit unsure about what RS tune would suit the Rune's suspension curve. Any advice on what would work best and what you think of the RS Vivid coil for the Rune would be great.

    Also, how do you guys find the stock Fox CTD that comes with the frame? Did you set it up based on Fox's 25% recommend sag? I found a little more sag ~30% works best for me. What about your rebound settings?

    Cheers
    Murray

    Hey Murray, maybe consider dropping by Supensionwerx in North Van and talk to James about the Rune. I know they carry the CCDB Air there and that is the other shock a lot of us on here are running.

    Can someone confirm for me if a crankset with the following BB will fit on the Rune. I am unsure. Thank you in advance.

    tune M/M will suit you, I've read in the Spainsh forum that AdrianoMTB is running that setting on his rune for those "hard" days, also recomended from a guy who writes a blog about suspensions sistems, which I would like to recomend but is in spanish...

    Thanks Mishtar. I really wanted the DB Air when I picked up the frame but it wasnt available at the time. How do you like it? Is it a truly "one shock to rule it all"? If it can handle everything well then it seems like a no-brainer. It would certainly be nice to not have to swap shocks all the time. I just figured I could get a coil shock cheap, but if the DDB Air does it all then I'll sell the CTD and suffer less wallet ache!

    Hey murray

    I'm running the ctd on the shore as well but I've been pleasantly surprised at it, but it is SUPER liner, Fox redesigned it to be this way. So if you're looking for that great ramp up limitless travel feel, the CTD isn't going to cut it. IMO their internal boost value needs work.

    CCDB air is the best air shock for it but you won't get the pedaling performance out of it that you get ctd, but at less you can adjust the curve to your liking.

    The only thing I have been cautioned on about the DB is that some people find it's TOO adjustable.so if you are going to buy it get ready to tune and re-tune endlessly.

    on the coil side, I've been told to just get the DB Air. when it's setup right you won't notice the difference.

    Nice, thanks for the input Resnick. I love to tinker with the settings so think I might just opt for the DB Air. Thats the problem with the CTD, there's not much to adjust, so I think the shock isnt performing as well as it should. Maybe its ok!

    Out of interest, how have you got your CTD set up? Much rebound? Sag?

    Cheers

    I wish I could answer this but as I broke my arm again before I got to ride it I have no idea. I have had my frame since mid November and the bike built since 12 Dec and still have not gotten a chance to ride it............

    I've got mine set to about 30% sag,

    Rebound I have set a little slower than the mid setting. from the slowest setting (clockwsie until it stops). I have it 7 clicks counter clockwise. I find this is better for fast chundery sections my tester spot is the last 100 meters of lower griffin ending at the bottom of KOTS.

    my bump compliance feels much better at this setting. when I turn it up higher my backend seems to kickup to much. I haven't tried this setting on Bob Sled to see how it performs on a smooth trail yet but I'll keep you posted.

    Great to know, thanks man! The Fox app told me 1 click in from fastest - which was way off. I am currently riding with around 4 clicks from fastest and like you mentioned it feels too harsh on those chundery sections (I too use Griffen as a test run! Bobsled felt ok, but still too harsh where it gets a little bumpy near the bottom.) I'll try another couple of clicks and see how it goes. Compression-wise, I find there doesnt seem to be a whole lot of difference between the Trail and DH settings. So I usually just keep it in Trail 2. You?

    The BB thing just confuses me and maybe it should not.

    If I were to order a XX1 crankset from starbike, which one of the options in the drop down menu would I choose for the Runes BB?

    SRAM XX1 crankset

    Not that I know of... All you'd need is a regular 68/73mm GXP BB, if they have them on site.
