    I went for the fox because of the ease of adjustment. The DB Air seems to be over my head for getting it fine tuned.

    Banshee Rune, L, CTD, 142x12,blue => 3775g, that's fine for me! (ctd = 300g, dropouts+axle ~230g)

    Details:

    Frame: Banshee Rune, L, Fox CTD, blue, 142x12 axle, dropouts (3775g)
    Front wheel: Hope Pro2, Supercomp, Flow EX
    Rear Wheel: XT 142mm, Supercomp, Flow EX
    Fork: Fox Van R 160
    Stem: Syntace Megaforce2 30mm
    Handlebar: Syntace VEctor Carbon 740mm
    Grips: Syntace
    brakes: Shimano SLX, 203mm, 180mm
    Shifter: Shimano XT iSpec
    Crankset: Shimano XT, 22/32
    Bashguard: Raceface light 32
    F-Derailleur: Shimano XT
    r-Derailleur: Shimano XT shadow+
    Cassette: Shimano XT
    Tyres: Muddy Mary 2,5 Trailstar, Highroller 2 Exo 2,4 (front with tube, rear with 60ml sealant)
    Pedals: Superstarcomponents
    Headset: Workscomponents -1,5 (ZS44/ZS56 - built to order! Thanks!) 63,5 - 64,5 HA (I am doing lots of technical/steep trail riding. 99,9% of the people out there will be perfectly fine without an angled headset).

    weight: 14,85kg

    That's how it looked like when it arrived. Sorry for the shaking hands....


    Tataaaaa!










    Uphill Position (180cm, normal/short - ok, definitely no long legs)



    Everything was fine when I built it. The bike is extremely stiff, there's hardly any flexing at the read end. My measurements basically comfirmed the geometry chart from the website. Only the top tube lenght i measured was 600mm instead of 610mm. The newest XT fron derailleur fits well (don't mount it too low! It will touch the black KS Link strut when fully compressed). I just looks amazing!!! Sice I was sic the last few days I couldn't ride it, but today....it's the day!!!

    I hope you can see the pictures...

    Thanks to everyday26 for the awesome support and ultra-fast shipping!

    How about the Shimano FD-M665 E Type which is the SLX 9 speed compact double specific FD? Should work fine with 10 speed stuff out back.

    Hey guys, in Spring I'll be getting my first bike and I'm leaning towards the Banshee. Budget is $4000 tops and with my limited knowledge of all the components I'm struggling to come up with a build. To save a bit of money on the build, Im considering just going with a one chainring setup. Now I'm looking for some input on what sort of gear ratios to get to get the most out of a single chainring goes. And also, is it hard to go from a single to a double setup with the same cranks?

    The Banshee Comp seems like it will be about $3500, should I consider that or go with my own build?

    Bike looks like a great fit for Vietnam. How do you like it for the New England riding. I am thinking of swithcing up from my MojoSL to something with a bit more travel. The V2 is on my short list.

    Rune spec for the DBair is Xvol can with 1 large volume spacer. Base settings are as follows:

    LSR - 14 clicks in
    LSC - 10 clicks in
    HSR - 2 turns in
    HSC - 2 turns in


    Did everyone knows that the large VOLUMEN SPACER is built by Cane Creek? Or is it homemade?

    builttoride:

    Another question from the series "I want to break my frame, is that ok?"

    I noticed that Rune has the ISCG tabs on the same plane as the BB shell face. Experience taught me that this often causes interference with the granny when using a Stinger-like chain guides.

    Since I will be running a double in front, this is an issue for me. I will be using Race Face Atlas cranks - so I only have about 2mm of chainline adjustment due to the retarded way RF cranks set the bearing pre-load.

    Is there a concete reason for such placement of the ISCG tabs? AFAIR the standard does not specify that and many frames which are sold with 2x10 have the tabs recessed some to avoid the problem above. My ex Spesh enduro had the tabs recessed by 2.5mm from the bb shell face.

    As for my question - shaving 1mm or so of material from the tabs is a no-go warranty wise - right?

    I really thought this bike was going to be around 32lb, but it's right around 33. Feels great, can't wait to go hit some dirt tomorrow. Although, I'm a little disappointed about the bushing play with the DBair. Waiting to hear back from Banshee/Trident regarding this.
