    I always jived well with 40 series as well, but were EC lowers. Zerostack 40 bearing with wet and dirty riding won't last I am afraid. You can get a 110 lower cup zerostack for a good price at Universal . Good luck with the weight, pretty ambitious especially with DH tread and dropper post. Heading to Blackrock in a few
    Ride On!

    I went 110 in mine also, 40 series has very short life expectancy in the PNW

    Jon let us know how the Rune performs, thinking about your ride report from yesterday. I think the slacker HA on v2 is probably why you may have leaned towards the V1 for better climbing.

    i've had ok luck with 40 series headsets. when i get them though, i fully clean the stock grease out and re-grease with a high quality bearing grease i get from work. it's made for extreme wet applications. so far they have held up well with this treatment, external and internal style and it's a lot cheaper than 110 or chris king.

    I thought they were only going to be available in Blue, Black and Raw. That looks sick!

    Alright, after today's ride at Blackrock can easily say this bike totally rips! Was still getting use to the taller and slacker front end while climbing since I was unable to drop the fork down like i usually do on the steep grinds due to blown adjustable fork last week. The bike did seem to climb better the more I went up the hill though and really shined on all the fun freeridey descents. Was able to hit stuff higher, farther, and harder than on my SB just the week prior at same locale. Conditions were pretty spectacular up ther today though. Most fun I had at Blackrock to date, mostly due to bike. The V2 does feel like a true AM/FR machine than the previous model as well. Pretty happy with the bike now as just general somewhat flat trail riding like I did yesterday wasn't enough for it. Had so much fun today that I pretty much rode continuously for at least 4 hours with multiple times up to the top. Great job with design and execution Keith, Jay and Banshee!
    Ride On!

    It will like BR very much as I just came back from there for first time with Rune. Perfect bike for the place as it allows to get multiple runs in with minimal effort.
    Ride On!

    Took my Rune 2 on a bit of an adventure over Christmas weekend here in Taiwan. Such an amazingly versatile bike.

    I only ride the zero stack 40 headsets and all have lasted since they were released and I ride in the PNW. Opinions appreciated but I'll stick with what has worked with me.

    "...back home in Vermont..."; What part are you from? Curious, as I am also a native VT'er.

    Here’s the same bike with 26” and 650b dropouts and wheels. I don’t have an accurate measurement, but it “feels” about 10mm higher. Note that I haven’t dropped the travel on the Lyrik to 150mm yet, so some of the rise is from that...

    Edit: well, there's two images when I preview the post, but just one when I save it...

    What kind of clearance between the arch and the tire are you getting with the Lyrik?

    belljeffw, did you ever try to put the 650b rear wheel on the 26er dropout? Just my curiosity, but I'd be interested in knowing if there would be enough clearance for it.

    No, unfortunately I ordered the 135X10 dropouts for the 26" wheels, and didn't have the hub spacers to adapt my 650b rear wheel. My memory of how close a fit it was makes me think you would have problems using the 26" dropouts with 650b wheels, but I could be wrong.

    It's a little under 1/4" (6mm). Slogging through deep mud might be a problem : )

    @ ptd:
    Awesome Rune
    Are these the 2.25 or 2.35 Hans Dampf? Could you please measure the Clearance between Tire and Yokes/Chain- Seatstays?

    but no - while i've been told by everyone in the know that i need an s3 derailleur for my frame, crc is telling me i need an s2, as the drl mounting holes on the frame are clearly offset as described above under spec 2. so, assuming keith is right, since i can't get one through my lbs, do i order a s2 derailleur, assuming crc got their descriptions mixed up? or an s3, assuming their internal processes are right even if the website copy got goofed

    what a ****ing mess

    I may be able to help as I purchased a spec 3 X0 from CRC, for this very job, and it has the offset holes. (as per the description for the spec 2 above)

    I have it in front of me

    i can take a pic if it helps with the packaging.
