    Haha unfortunately the 5 forks were all before my days at Banshee when I rode much harder... plus at east 2 of them were from bad cases (nose case one, and rear case another) so my fault. I also snapped 12 frames before my banshee days. Not snapped any since!

    Hi everybody I plan on ordering a new Rune. I'm 6'3'' (190.5cm) what size should i get? I plan on using a 50mm stem and 800mm bars. I'm currently riding a bandit xl with a 24.5'' top tube and the seattube is 21'', the seat tube feels to long on my bandit and the toptube with a 50mm stem feels just right. I prefer a smaller bike.
    will the large be to small? Will the 25'' toptube be to long on the XL ? I've heard the bike feels pretty long for its size. Any info would be awesome!

    I'm no expert size-wise but that definitely looks like you should get the XL.

    Personally since you kind of split the difference in the ETT between the L and XL and then say you prefer a smaller bike, I'd have to tend to say go for the L and if you need it go to a 60mm stem to make up the reach difference. Me personally at 6'2.25" with long arms and inseam prefer the fit of the XL where I use a 65mm stem and 785mm bar, but then I suffer the longer wheelbase which is more of a hassle in the tight stuff, but more stable on the fast stuff, have wondered what a L with 80-90mm stem would be like - FYI I'm on a XL Prime with 25.4" ETT.

    I'm at 188cm riding a large, also prefer a slightly smaller frame, just in the process of deciding if I prefer a 50mm or 65mm stem.

    With the low stack height / short head tube it feels longish for a 24inch top tube.

    180cm and I ordered a medium. Comparing the reach between the M Rune and my SM Demo 8, the Rune came out slightly longer and I'm hoping it doesn't feel too long for me. To be fair, I like my bikes really small. I was on a M Wildcard before, but never felt as comfortable on it as I did on a friend's SM Wildcard. I guess what I'm saying is, if you want a play bike, get something smaller and if you want something for all day rides, get the bigger bike.

    Hola Juan,
    From my experience I'd recommend you the L size.
    I'm 182cm and I ordered an M, when I got it, the bike was really small for me. I traded for an L size and now is perfect.

    It's all good, Jalafer. I'm used to tiny bikes and I prefer them. Reach numbers say it's actually a tiny bit longer than the small Demo 8 I'm coming from.

    I just placed my order for a large. I hope i made the right choice. I had a large tracer 275 for a while and that bike felt alright, so we'll see what happens. Thanks everybody for the info!

    Had lots of fun with my Rune in the park. Tested the slack setting and like it a lot, only thing that annoys me is that I'm still riding without a chain guide.

    New to this site, but I demo'd a Rune at the weeknd and decided that it was the bike for me to replace my well use and slightly battered SX Trail. Should hopefully pick it up at the weekend.

    Have gone for a large black one with a Cane Creek DB Air because I didn't like the Fox CTD shock.

    Will be built up with the parts from my SX - 36 Van RC2's, Thomon stem, Answer 780 DH bars, XT 783 brakes, Sram X9 1x10 drivetrain, RF Atlas cranks, Easton wheels and a Reverb.

    Suspension still needs setting up, hoses and cables need to be lengthened and tidied up , the chain needs to be shortened and I'm not too sure about the chain guide. Talk about tight clearance on the guide, I think I might need a different guide.

    Banshee Rune V2 Build Thread

    Saw a black one on the trail yesterday. It really is a mean-looking bike. It just looks fast, more so than the other bikes in its class.

    I have been riding the Rune V2 with a Fox Talas 180 and it rides perfect, I have it for 6 month now and wonīt change a thing on this bike, is the perfect bike, I only lower the fork to 140 when the climb is really hard, if not I go up in 180
    Cheers

    Yes, a Stinger does fit on the V2-Bikes, but is maybe a non-optimized Solution as Chain-Device. You have to be aware that the Pulley is very low/exposed between the CS-Yoke and Chainring.

    @ juanbeegas and alattack:
    Very nice Runes! Enjoy!

    Yes, ir fit, but you have to trim the top fin because interferes with the low direct mount of the front drilleaur, I don't know if there is any TRS dual without that fin on top, but mine got it, but no big deal to make it to fit

    Thanks for the reply. Are you using the RS or the TRS+? How much of the top fin do you have to take away? Could you post a picture of your setup? That would be great! (Specially interested in the position of the plley and the fin!)

    Agreed that it is a non-optimized. I have install it and found that Stinger would not work properly with Rune V.2, suggest same situation with Pryme and Spitfire.

    Chainguide woes

    FOod for thought, if you go w/ a clutch rear derailleur, ideally mid cage, there really is no need for a lower chainguide.
    Also 10-spd shimano rear derailuers work great with 9spd SRAM shifters.

    My chainguides are all coming off!

    Great FM - somehow my same Thought after debating which Chain-Device would work properly for Months now ...
    Iīm in Need to Upgrade my old XT 2x9 to 2x10 and will go the same Root: Shadow+ and a simple small Piece of rubber Water-hose zip-tied close to the Big Frontring. Not as a true Device, but just a little more Tension to avoid Chainrubb at the lower Yoke when in the Small-Ring.

    I don't think you'll even need that. For rough terrain the upper guide or front derailuer, lower taco or bash guard, and a mid cage clutch is perfect.
    Enjoy- I know I am! So nice to never hear the sound of chainslap.

    @el_guillyt Thanks for the pictures... can you say how much you did take off from the fin... in mm? Hard to tell from the pictures but that looks like you had to do some work...

    So your advice would be to skip the chainguide and simply get a shadow+ rd which would remove _all_ the hassle related to chain slap and the chain coming of from the front chain rings?

    @MindPatterns you'r wellcome, hard to say how much, we didn't mesured, just put it on place and mark, worked for me and my friend.

    I'm also running shadow+ don't mind about to much in terms of chain retention, it is the quietest bike I ever rode

    Hey Mate - I get what you are saying.
    Well, I donīt know if this "Issue" appears on the Prime or Rune. but on the Spitfire the Chain will rubb the lower Yoke when you are in the 22er Front and 11, 13 and 15er Cassette-Gearing (Mid-Cage-Derailleur). More so when the Flip-Chips are in the slack Setting. Iīm in the neutral, so it affects only the 11 and 13er Cassette-Rings. Therefor this rubber Water-hose avoid it and is more Kind of Protection plus Device. Ok, I could taper it, but this Rubber is very strong and shows no Sign of Wear after one Month of use. Replacing it is easy, cheap and quickly done.
    Iīm running this, without any other Chain-Device, Tacco, Bash or other Stuff, successfully on my 2x9 Gearing and I will do the same with 2x10 and Clutch-Derailleur.
    Apart from that Iīm with you. Get a Clutch and rid of the lower Device - you donīt really need it, regardless of 1x10 0r 2x10.

    I used to have the Straitline Silent guide on my V2, but even with that guide I would still get bad chain slap. It was very annoying, so I sold that and now have the MRP AMg chain guide a 32t ring and a Shimano Zee rear derailleur, but still got chain slap as the chain sits so close to the underside of the chain stay. So I made my own version of the C Guide and it has eliminated pretty much all of the under side chain slap

    Ah I hadn't considered that part- and it is a tight fit running a chainguide up against that lower yoke.
    Mainly I really dislike the current chainguide standards that wreck your chainline and require crank removal for any adjustments. So I really don't want to run a chainguide anymore.

    But after today's ride I am putting my lower chainguide back on. The bike doesn't really need it, but runs quieter with it.

    Yes, thatīs why I have filed down the ISCG-Tabs a bit - just to fit Chain-Device and Dual-Rings without "irregular" Spacing. Now the only worthy Thing to have is a small Anti-Chain-Suck-Plate and Tacco, just for the Case ...


    My Take of a simple and efficient C-Guide. Itīs not sexy looking, but works:

    Ahh ok. As you can see - no other Guiding except that Hose, and some Bolts in the upper two ISCG-Tabs to prevent Chainsuck. But this is going to get a better Solution as soon as I have the Possibility ...

    I dont know if its the same on the rune but I have an e thirteen trs duel guide not the trs + and it fits my spitfire v2 without any issues . I think the differance is that it doesnt have the extended shark fin only a much shorter version the low direct mount mech fits with it fine

    Man, all this talk about chin guides. Glad I went 1x10. X9 crank, removed the spider, slapped on a 28T Bling Ring and I have all the climbing grunt I need. Running an 11-36 paired with an X9 clutch derailleur. Works great. Im using an MRP 1X upper guide and I am thinking of going to this Universal Cycles -- MRP Micro Chain Guide to quiet down the chain slap on the yoke.

    That's exactly what I am running, with a single ring and a direct mount E13 XCX guide. Perfect setup, simple, lightweight and no chain drops. I currently not even running anything on the chain stay as there is very little noise.

    What rear derailleur are you using? Some SRAM Type 2's start to clunk when the T55 gets too tight. I thought my frame was getting a clunk and it turned out its the derailleur.

    Still on a short cage 9spd X9. Was thinking of getting one of them bike specific wraps and just covering the entire length of the chainstay.

    Hi Keith I just got my Rune last week. I was wanting a CCDB-A but the last stock at the distributor in my country was one with Fox CTD. I decided to take it as I didn't want to wait for couple of months for next shipment thinking to get a CCDB-A separately.
    My question is do I need different mounting kit for CCDB shock ? Or can I use one installed for Fox? Thanks.

    I still wait for my frame, but I need to replace reverb hose.
    Can someone tell me length of seatpost hose/cable (with mount under saddle) to fit large frame.
