    Thanks for the heads up. Admittedly, a bit lazy with my research.

    OK, I swapped out the 45mm stem for an 85mm stem and shortened the bars to 700mm (amazing what 80mm of extra bars does to the feel of a bike). I also changed out the Vivid for a Pushed Monarch. For some reason I couldnít get enough rebound damping on the Vivid. Iím waiting on a reducer headset lower for the Lyrik. At the moment Iím happy with the Totem, but it's really too much fork if you like long technical climbs.

    I donít think you will lose the fun factor with the V2 Rune compared to the V1 Spitty. I canít tell if itís new-bike-effect, but this thing is a joy to ride. I have only been on XC trails so far, and taken a couple of low drops. Iíve also only played with the dropout tabs with the centered hole. It climbs very well, though as I mentioned I need to swap out the Totem. Iím also still struggling with an arthritic knee that doesnít want me pedaling while out of the saddle, so my impressions on climbing are probably pretty skewed.

    Like someone else mentioned earlier in this thread I initially had trouble with manuals, but the problem went away by the second ride. My thinking is that being further forward means you have to start the manual sooner, but not pull any harder. If the V1 Spitty had any serious handling flaws it was the effort needed to pick the front end up.

    So I got to take mine out today on a true all mountain climb/descend ride with plenty of big drops and hits to air it out. Initial impressions are stellar. This bike absolutely rips the DH. I am still getting used to my Fox CTD but it feels pretty good however I have a really hard time feeling the difference between the three modes because I descended in climb mode and climbed in descend mode and I never even noticed. I am coming off an Elka on my V1 Rune which I thoroughly enjoyed because it was set it and forget it. I am currently on a size Med in the Neutral setting on the flip chips. I can't wait however to try it in the slack mode but that is another day. The bike climbs surprisingly well as compared to my V1. I did however def notice the lower BB on the climbs (pedal strikes) but noticed it equally as much on the descends when i hit stuff in hyper speed. The bike jumped very well as well which if it was easier I would attach some pictures. Over all I think banshee did a wonderful job on the redesign and this thing is going to get a lot of use and see plenty of airtime!

    HOLLA!!!

    Dang, I was worried about this. I'm building a V2 for Downieville which mostly features super rocky descents. Pedal strike often equals ejection up there. I'd be curious to hear from V2 riders how the chip in the steep setting feels on the downhills. Does it kill the mini-downhill feel that a lot of guys are reporting?

    It descends great in the steep setting. Still very planted and stable.

    The steep setting on this bike is still slack compared to most other bikes in its class. I run a Lyrik with an A2C of 555mm. In the slack setting I'm just a butt hair under 65 degrees. Thinking of moving to the neutral position.

    Update: Also just weighed it, and it came in at 31lbs 3oz. Not bad considering I have heavier tires!

    There is also a phone app for the 2013 Fox shocks and forks that helps set up sag. Only works with the 2013 models though.
