    Trident Sports bike division in N. Van, BC until US dealers get them in their hands. Not sure if 150's are available yet, but definitely 135's.

Guys that are running 30-40mm stems are guys who kind in-between'ers in sizes due to longer reach. For example I went medium and plan to run 50 stem with saddle pushed back or set-back post for more comfort with seated pedalling due to smaller top tube than what I am used to, but if going large I would more than likely need to run about a 30-35mm max to get similar cockpit feel with saddle forward a bit or I would feel too stretch out with out of the saddle riding/descending.

    I should have a bike to post up some time soon.

    I've been on a MKI longer than almost anyone. I am going with a MKII in silver polish. 135mm and 150mm spacing.

    I'll give 650b a try at some point but for now I will stick with 26".

    Those of you who ordered a CCDBa, what size mounting hardware did you get for the front and rear shock mounts

    Yes, it's included!

    I just want to go for an axle with quick release.

    thanks for the info...

    the Rune comes with an ThruAxle (if you order the 142mm or the 150mm Dropouts), but for Car Transport or Race (Tire Puncture) the Maxle is just more convenient...

    I am waiting anxiously for one ( Going to be 150mm dropouts with 180mm front fork - 26" wheels ). A friend of mine is also waiting - but he is going for 160mm fork and 650b wheels.

    Went for a hike today and stumbled upon a pair of elusive V2s playing in the California sun.

    My build: I should have my frame & fork at the end of feb or mid march, most of my components are here on Tuesday. All i'll need is my drivetrain, bars and some other knickknacks.


    Weight estimate is based off of claimed weights and some estimates that I could find. No air, grease or fluid estimated though. If I'm wrong on a few weights let me know.

    ^ Did you have a Convert before? I swear I've seen a similar build before on a Covert frame, black too.

    Sick build, but would pass on the CC 40 headset though as that is a lower end bearing and just wont last long around here on the lower cup. Mine seized in about 9-10 months with regular cleaning and no mud riding. Not sure about weights, but my medium Rune weighed a bit over 8lbs and my build is 33.3 lbs with standard post, over 34 lbs w/6" KS post.

    Took out the ride for first time today on some trails in the Gorge. Bike is VERY supple and smooth, so much different/better than the V1 in that regard, but I found the bike didn't accelerate or sprint near as well as the V1 on the flats and while climbing. So, I guess it is a trade-off. Want supple/smooth, bump eating travel with no pedal feedback at cost of pure pedallable acceleration. The frame also feels slightly more robust and heavier than the V1 with similar shock, I imagine about 1/2-3/4 lb. I feel this bike would be best for steep, rough terrain on a regular basis where you still need to pedal here and there. So definitely more AM/FR than previous version and pedals and rides similarly to the Cove G-Spot to me.
    Ride On!

    I'm actually a big fan of the 40 headset, have one on my legend and one of my wildcard and my girlfriend has one on her Rune. All of them have been great for us. Maybe you just got a lemon.

    For weight, i'm estimating that the large will be just over 8.5lbs w/ a CCDBa. My goal is 30lbs or under with an adjustable post and 2ply tires. Wish me luck.
