In any case, even with the short stem, I feel a lot more forward on the bike – the pedals feel further back than anything else I ride. THAT will take some time to adapt to. I will spend some time getting it setup better this week, and try to post something worth reading next weekend…

    Look forward to anything you can report. Thanks!

    I wonder which color of frame suit me when I have lot of white parts like Bos stuffs, Lg1 chainguide, sadde etc.
    Im interested of raw and yellow . Black is too simple, I have already a black frame for 4x :)

    Id love to look at images of such configs (raw and yellow with white parts but black rims?)

    I know it is matter of taste, I have hard time to figure out an picture.

    Hi Keith!

    Are these base settings the same for the CCDB Coil?¿?? (these settings are from the CCDB AIR)

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

    Thanks!

    The rough tune layout may be helpful for the DBcoil, but these are specific to the DBair. I'd suggest that you start around these settings and tune to your preferances from there.

    Size large with dropouts, hanger, 12 mm thru axle and CTD weighed in at: 8lbs 5oz. This does not include the seat post or seat collar. In comparison a large V1.5 with a DHX Air 5.0 weighed 7lbs 10oz.

    I must have read your comment to my post 10x's and I must admit that I just can't make sense of it. What does chili have anything to do with it other than making me hungry?!

    HOLLA!!!

    Finally got all the parts after close to 4 weeks after getting my frame. About 2 pounds heavier then I hoped for at close to 35pds. Besides the fork I can not figure out where all the extra weight is compared to the other frame on here that I saw with the CCDB Air. That one came in at 33pds.

    Rune CCDB Air Option
    My warranty replacement is in queue, and after seeing some of the V2s built up, I can't wait.

    Quick question, when I was conversing with Trident, I was told the CCDB Air wasn't an option. I am more than willing to chip in a bit more for the upgrade.

    Anyone have the low down if Trident allows this upgrade option? If so, I would like to go that route. Any assistance with this is greatly appreciated.

    I am pretty sure if you go to the thread below Trident said it is a $200 upgrade with them once they are available. Post number 93.

    "We have Cane Creek Double Barrel Airs on order with Banshee for Legends, Primes, Runes and Spitfires. We are receiving our first shipment for Runes next week and will have the ones for the other models available by the beginning of February.

    They are only sold with a frame since we are not an authorized Distributor.

    The boys from Banshee have been really impressed with the performance and say that they are worth the $200 up charge over the Fox offering. I personally have minimal experience with the DB air, except for one ride on the first generation, so I'm looking forward to trying a properly tuned one in the future.
