    For ****s and giggles I swapped out my slack flip chips for the neutral ones. See that goes tomorrow.

    I am quite happy so far with my Fox CTD... it is not undervalved imho.
    but it tends to bottom out too easily... I am going the same way as you do, and add some plastic to the outer airchamber to make it ramp up a little more...
    other than that, I think it works even better than tha Rune V1 with Fox RC4 shock...

    ...well, i dont think ist normal as well, thats why im complaining ...i can understand if theres a delay of a few weeks, but in three months of delay you can already run out of your patience, trust me ...especially if youve paid a down payment (as it was a pre-order), sold your old frame already and your dealer is ignoring your inquiries about the delivery (probably feeling pathetic already... no wonder) :/

    I just placed a preorder for mine for the June batch. Maybe your dealer wasn't too honest on the delivery date?

    This is not professional from Brand / Distributor. I will be really happy if i will get any decision from the brand managers. (distributor-impossible to contact- still away, still on roads, switchyng offline from skype if I'm Online, etc....) it's a 5 months ago when i make a complaint for Rune V1,5. som I bought bikes 8 months ago and i can't riding and I don't have function bike....Which person i can contact about this problem? som specifically mails or phone numbers directly to banshee?

    I'm from Italy and I've the same problem. I placed my order the 10 of january and my dealer said that the frame would be delivered between february and march. Now we're at the end of March and I dont have any info about the delivery date.

    ...obviously we have been misled by our dealer (charvat bros) in terms of the frames delivery ...i know about a few other customers complaining about the same issues they have with them ...lack of communication, unreal predictions (or even lies) ...if i would have known this, i would have avoided any business with them and keep my carbon nomad ...im sure the new rune is a nice frame, but after 3 months of delay ive definitely run out of my patience! amen

    Hey all. Think I've narrowed it down, to either Rune or Knolly Chili.

    Rune appears to be dialed, but I'm wondering about mud build up in that lower linkage pocket, and short bearing life? (It rains A LOT here) Are there any issues with that?

    I've also noticed a few of you are running 180mm forks... how does it climb on steeps? Does it feel it out of balance in the air? I actually had planned to run a 170mm Fox Van/ CCDBA combo, any thoughts?

    Cheers

    I doubt there is enough time that has been put in on any of these frames when it comes to bearing life. The oldest bearing bikes out there would probably be the prototype Primes. If mud buildup is a concern then perhaps road bikes are more up your alley. As for the 170mm....thats what I run (170mm RS Lyric Coil) and the bike climbs great! I am sure you could run the 180mm in the steep setting and it would be fairly equivalent to running the 170 in the neutral setting but dont quote me on that because I dont know. I am sure either way you will be fine.

    Actually, road bike is far from up my alley. It's merely an observation, that pocket is right in the line of fire for huge mud cake. And 75% of my riding is north shore winter rain so it could be a concern.

    Obviously this rig has been tried and tested in my back yard, but you never know... remember the bushing idea.

    Anyway, Rune is looking fine and probably is my go to. Thanks for info, a 170 fork is likely.

    I live in the PNW and mud isn't an issue in the area above the BB shell. Sure it gets a little grubby in there but nothing to complain about. I have had the bike since November of last year and the bearings are still going strong.

    Did you ever get this sorted out? My arm is healed up so I am getting the bike ready for its first ride and I noticed play. I tightend the rear to the 16nm as Kieth mentioned in another thread and I can actually move the shock side to side in the back, seems like a lot of play.

    Super easy to fab up a rear fender out of plastic sheet, that runs from the lower chainstay yoke all the way up above the seatstays. 3 zip-ties to mount. Keeps crap from collecting at the pivots, although I'm not sure it's much of an issue anyways. I've got exactly a year on my Prime proto, PLENTY of wet Seattle riding on it, the fender works great and there's plenty of clearance for both the fender and a nice big tire (i.e. hand dampf 2.35). With the fender being light & ample clearance, I just leave it on year round.

    Here's the pattern I made off my Prime. The Rune should be pretty close.

    You can find 1/32" plastic sheet pretty easily. Amazon carries it. You can cut it with scissors and use a hole punch for the zip ties. I bought a pair of Marsh Guards for one bike, and traced them on a plastic sheet for the other. Works well.

    Well, my case might differ a little bit from yours. I had no side-to-side play, but rather vertical play. The german distributor for CC was aware of the problem, some bushings that got delivered with the shock did not apply to the specifications. I had to send the shock in and they changed them without further costs for me, so all Kudos to Cosmic Sports GmbH Fahrrad GroBhändler Bike Markenprodukte and CC for taking care of this.

    My Rune XL arrived last week and I'm loving it! XL fits me perfect with a 30mm stem!

    I have one problem, I need to tighten the seatpost clamp really hard to
    get the seatpost (KS lev) to stay put. I got some creaking sound from the seat tube when I took the bike out today and had to loosen the clamp to make it go away, only problem with that was that I could rotate the seat fairly easy...

    I'm thinking of getting a clamp with bolt instead of QR-clamp, I'm not moving the seat anyway.

    How hard can I torque the clamp?

    ...adding some carbon paste will help it stay put as well.

    Forgot to mention that in my post, I've used carbon paste and it didn't help much.

    Seems to vary a bit from frame to frame. Some have no issues and others say it's a tad loose. Seat posts can vary also.

    Check this link to the Spitfire thread and some pics of the Salsa Lip Lock and I know that Chromag QR post clamp is dam beefy/strong looking. Might try either one of those.

    Well I along with others have been on the Prime protos for over a year and so far, so good with the bearings and we had a crap load of rain last year=loads of very muddy rides and gunk. AFAIK, the bearings in the production bikes are even higher quality than we got in the protos, so I don't think you'll have to worry, but good common sense and maintenance will ensure long life and lack of trouble - i.e. if you ride through lots of creek/river crossing and/or super deep mud puddles that put the linkages into the soup, then pulling down the frame and checking the bearings a couple times a year would be a good idea no matter what bike you're riding.

    Well then, if needed that little fender is a good idea.

    One other thing, regarding DBair... does anybody know if current or future deliveries from Trident will ship with the the new XV can? Have any of you upgraded to teh XV can on your V2?

    As per this email i recieved the XV can won't be out for a month or so.

    "my apologies, it seems as though I didn't sent out a further update.


    Our first production run wasn't up to snuff, so I'm afraid there's been a further delay. We're now looking at first of May before we can ship. I'm sorry about this -- we wanted to be sure they're absolutely spot on!""

    Is this a 32tooth ring up front?
    And what size of the guide are you running?

    Please keep me updated on how this combo performs.
    I plan on getting this Guide aswell once they become available here in Germany.

    Yeah it's a 32t ring, with a 32-38t guide. I wanted the option to be able to run a larger front ring.

    My arm finally healed up enough for me to get out for a ride yesterday. I cannot really comment on the new Rune vs the old as it has been so long since I rode and I think I only had 3 rides on the Rune since last may as I was mainly riding the Wilson. About the only thing I did notice was even though it is VERY Slack it did not wander to bad on the few climbs I had the lungs for. I have a few more parts I am changing out then I will grab a weight and post up what the full build is.

    Another ride today and the Rune doesn't stop to impress me. I'm finally riding it with the Lyrik R2C DH and the bike starts to show it's capabilities!

    What really annoys me though is the seatpost diameter being off. Today my Reverb slipped again down for appr. 3-4 mm. I'm using a Tune Würger but cannot go the whole 5 NM since otherwise the Reverb would not be able to use it's whole travel.

    Keith, is there any suggestion?

    Ya, I haven't even built mine up yet, but my seat tube is way off. I need the crank the piss outta the clamp to get it to hold, and even then it can slip with a lot of pressure... gah. My old rocky mountain had the same problem so it's not just a banshee thing, but man is it annoying.

    What about something like this?



    • Concealed inner o-ring design, ideal for carbon seatpost to avoid slippery falling
    • Weight: 26g

    If it helps hold a carbon post in place, it should help hold the dropper post?
    More info here.

    Sadly it seems either the tubing manufacturer is off or one of the reamers at the factory is off, as I too found I had that problem with my V1 Paradox. Simple solution though, just cut a shim from an old/used soda can and your problem will be solved. Seat tube on the Prime is alitle big, but not like the Paradox was, no shim needed on it, but do have to clamp it down a bit.

    Well, tbh, I'd hate to use a hack like this on a € 1600,- brand new bike frame, and was hoping there is some kind of official statement from Keith - like some kind of best partice what would work best with the frame (carbon paste, shim etc.).
    It's just a little meh. since the frame rides so damn well. Can't wait to swing my legs over it again!
    Not sure about the shim and the forces that usually apply to a seat post in a seat tube though - any chance something might break here by bad luck?
