    I just have to say how much this bike rocks!!! So far I have ridden it at our local freeride and jump trail to a 35 mile, 5500 feet ride, and it has handled everything. When pointed DH its way faster than the V1 to the point where i scared myself a little as I wasn't expecting it

    Thank you Banshee

    These new Runes are really making me envious. They're all looking really really good!

    Finished the build today. First ride tomorrow. Quick spin round the house and I instantly noticed waaaay less pedal bob. Size wise the large feels great, I always felt too cramped on my V1 Medium. I'll throw on a 50mm stem, 2012 XT brakes and a lighter wheelset and it should be perfect. The raw metal under clearcoat looks amazing in the daylight and the whole frame right down to the pivot axles is on a new level of finesse compared to the V1. Big thanks to Keith@Banshee and Zac@Trident for helping sort me out.

    Hi guys!!

    Wow, nearly 25 pages of runes thoughts!!! Really Like it!!! So after 2 months using the bike and handle it in any possible conditions (Including bikepark session)... I have to say... THIS IS THE BIKE!!!

    BRUTAL....

    I want to show yours my Rune with 2 different builds.

    1. DH Configuration ( I have the vivid coil waiting for a K9 spring so.. figure out the bike with the coil... see the slack angles and how the bike appears.... itīs a killer bike! ) (About 16 kilos)

    Hello AdrianoMTB,

    I see you are not using a front derailleur here? Why do you do that? Is the single 36 ring enough? I'd appreciate advice on that, because most of the riders here in Russia say you need a front derailleur on a mid-travel bike, whereas one American guy I know who's been riding for all his life says it's only required when "climbing trees".

    I'd also appreciate it if you shared your experience wrt installing the LG1+ guide in combination with the XT triple crankset. Do the small ring tabs get in the way of the chain guide backplate? Did you have to grind them off?

    Also, how are the XT cranks holding up in downhill? Any chance to break them?

    Other than that, I have to say you guys must be crazy professional. I see lots of CCDB's and even some BOS shocks in this thread, that's crazy expensive, there must be some real reason to spend that much on professional hardware.

    I find a 2 tooth smaller chainring to largest rear cog is enough for me. I'm running 34T front 11-36 back. When I'm fit I've found 36T front 11-36 back enough. Riding the same trails, my friend uses 2x front with 11-36, he wouldn't consider a single front. So it depends what you like/fitness/style.

    It seems from this thread there are lots of enthusiasts who have chosen the frame/gear becuase it's fun. My situation is after 20+ years of mtb'ing it's a luxury to have stuff like the CCDB and this frame, it's replacing 2 bikes, and it's fun...

    Hello DaWiseNuthatch (good nick )

    Iīm not using a front dérailleur in the Rune cause my local trails and the ways where I use to go up with the bike (mostly of them are wide semi roads) are not very technical in the uphill.. just go with good cadence and good fitness level. Obviously itīs not my first time with 1 ring in the front.. so my body is habituate to run with this kind gear.

    Anyway the most important thing is how your fitness level are, so itīs depend on your capacity to maintain this kind of gears, in my case until now Iīm able to move that gears but I use to train 4 days a week plus the weekend route... probably the day I expend only 1 or 2 days with the bike I will build 2 rings again or the SRAM XX1

    My combination in the bike is 11-36 in the rear and a 30t in front. not complex and specially physical.

    The combination with the e-thirrteen LG1 and the 30T ring are awesome, no issues and the chain line is fine so, good.

    In the downhill the cranks performance are perfect to be honest, no issues, no scare about brake it.. just fine again

    About the thread of shocks like the CCDBīs or BOS or something like that.. I do not know the case of our partners but in my case I had a Ibis mojo hd later and a DH bike so I decided to reduced them in only 1.. the Rune... so itīs perfect, thatīs why most people of this forum have this amazing builds on their Runes.

    Cheers!

    Those who ordered a CCDBa, did you have to order a special tune shock for the Rune?

    Kieth posted this earlier. Notice he recommends one large volume spacer.

    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

    The frame shouldn't need faced (everything is faced chased and reamed before leaving the factory), although sometimes on painted frames it looks a little like it might be required due to the weld around the ISCG. If in doubt you can send me a photo and I'll confirm keith@bansheebikes.com.

    Just got done building this LG up. Went with the LG air reducer sleeve in the can, hope that helps but not sure it needed it. Hitting the Dells tomorrow for its 1st romp and see how it handles. Feels very nimble around the hood, kinda like a SC Blur? Comes in at 32.5lbs. Cant wait for the romp.

    For anyone waiting on the 650b dropouts...

    I called Trident today and they had apparently dropped that part of my order, since they didn't have any when the frame shipped. I was told they have "a few" in stock with more to come by the middle of February, and I had to give him my CC number again. It was pretty clear they wouldn't have sent the rest of my order if I hadn't called back. So if you're waiting for dropouts, give them a call...

    Yeah, the BB area doesn't look like it needs to be faced/chased at all when looking at BB shell face head on. It's only when you run your finger over the face of BB shell surface that it your fingers catches a bit of material protruding off the rim of the shell from the inner threads, making the shell face not totally flush or smooth feeling. I never had to have a new frame faced before or really know what determines if so, just curious as it doesn't feel totally smooth and flush at the face and wondering if it will impact BB install at all? Myself and a friend were going to do the build this weeekend, but going to have favorite LBS frame builder do it instead and sure he will be able to make that determination. Probably shoot you an up close pick as well just to make sure too.
    Thx Keith,
    Jon
    Ride On!
