    However, the small airchamber ist just... hm... tooo small? it is nearly impossible to use all of the travel right now, despite having 35% SAG.

    Should I go for the High Volume aircan, or take the Debonair (which I believe is the biggest of the 3)?
    I'm running a Debonair with 3 volume ribbons and little less than 30% sag.
    I get full travel ocasionaly on demanding trails or tracks and still retain a proper position for climbing.
    With 35% or more sag I felt too far back on the the bike when seated, not good for extended pedaling time.

    cheers.

    Hi all, I'm building up a Rune this winter and will soon be joining the clan.

    I have a couple of bottom bracket questions. (sorry if I'm easily confused by all these standards)...

    From what I can gather the Rune requires a threaded bb, 68/73 size.

    Can I put a bb30 sram bottom bracket on? This is the item I'm looking to install, will it work?

    Truvativ X9 2.2 MTB 2x10 Crankset BB30 39/26T Gray | Bikewagon

    Obviously I'd be ditching the spider and double ring and going with a direct mount ring. Thanks!

    Ok, I think I've got this figured out, I'll need a GXP bb if I stick with Sram. Sorry to junk up the thread and I'll post up some pics when she's all built.

    After reading the forums on here and other locations I couldn't pass up the deal on the Rune v2 2015 GX at Jenson.

    I have five rides on the bike and so far love it. Climbs great and blows through the downhill without hesitation.

    I went with the gx build knowing that I would need to add a dropper and perhaps replace a few items such as the 710mm handlebars. (I didn't ask before ordering if they would switch this out) The bar feels a bit narrow as I find my hands naturally at the very edge of the bar the 785mm that comes with the 2016 would be ideal.

    I switched the cranks for 170mm and a 30t ring. Still find myself pedal striking but I feel this is more of something that I will learn to deal with and adjust my technique, as most bike have this low of a bb these days.

    My biggest issue with the build were the tires. The Nobby Nics that came with the bike were scary at downhill speed, felt flexy, gave out on corners and wouldn't hold on rocks or roots. Granted it is winter and things are slightly wet but these tires shouldn't be on this bike. However they are fast and have little rolling resistance. Switched the tires out for a Minon and High Roller II installed tubeless much much better.

    I haven't found any issue with wheels (raceface affect) yet. I'm 175lb so I might not be at their limit. It will be interesting to see how they hold up but so far so good.

    Placed one bottomless token in the Pike, though I might go to two, set up the rear shock with around 30% sag. Feels great and haven't wanted to spend too much trail tinkering with settings yet and haven't needed to.

    Overall no regrets. I wanted a bike that felt stable on the downhill (fun) and wasn't difficult to climb with and the Rune does it.

    How much does it weigh, and what size is it? I've been eyeing it.

    Been riding mine since last year. Just installed some offset bushings to lower the bottom bracket 0.5 inch. It sits a little under 13.5 inches in the neutral setting with 27.5 wheels. Will test it tomorrow. Love this bike! BTW it's a 2014 model and weighs 30.75 lbs.

    2 years has gone by since heart surgery, this year I'm buying a season pass for Valhalla for my geriatric 09 Rune. The jones is on.
    All the pix of the V2's is killing me! If they had clearance for 27.5+ flubber, I'd be having Keith ship a fresh bike UPS red label.
    There's still no way in hell I'd give up my 09. I thoroughly enjoy the performance of the Runes, they're just plain awesome!

    I have the Medium and do not have a decent scale so not sure on the weight exactly but it is a heck of a lot lighter than my old free-ride bike and that is all that really mattered for me.

    8.5 is the eye to eye length. 2.5 is stroke length (how much the shock shaft moves in and out of the body)

    I did that too but did know if the 1mm made a difference as everywhere I have looked the 216mm DBair cs was out of stock. I was going to pull the trigger on this if it doesnt matter. Cane Creek DB Air Shock CS XVOL 8.5 x 2.5 (215/63) - Modern Bike

    You won't need a hv can if you weight that much. You're going to need the progressive ness of an air can deep in the travel to not bottom out. I'm 230 and I never consider a hv can

    Alternatively, u can always buy it from canecreek directly..but the price is higher.. but at least they will setup with appropriate hardware and tuning from factory specifically for rune.. this is only my 2cent.. the choice is yours

    Hell ya! So far the build looks awesome! Just a quick discussion with hv can. Yes you'll feel the initial stroke to be more sensitive but because the can is larger, it'll take less force for it to bottom out. Hence for heavy folks like me, it just doesn't work. Plus because of my weight, the initial stiction to get the shock active doesn't take much. Good luck on the build. Ask away any questions! Rune is an awesome bike!

    Has anyone been messing with an X2 shock on the rune? How far off were you guys from factory recommendations? How many volume spacers did you add/subtract?

    The ccdb hab a bit more "pop" but the storia Is just easy.
    Fixed the hs, ls compression and rebound once and it works on nearly Every track,
    Maybe i need a softer coil, thats what ill Try next.

    Nice setup!

    I finally got the x2 put on and I am very impressed. Most noticeable trait is how it stays high in its travel. I will miss a climb switch though but for downs I have found a winner. It also goes really well with fox 36 platform. I'm basically at fox recommendation for now with max volume spacers in it!

    I just received the needle bearing kit for the lower shock eye so I hope to get that installed tonight.

    I like it a lot just had a chance to ride it in the gravel drive way. Not use to the pedals yet. Steering feels great dropper post works nice. Brakes do not lock up even under hard application being the 203mm and me weighing 250. I will have to see how suspension works out no trails yet Raining.

    Does anyone know if a stock Cane Creek DBAir CS comes stock with a volume reducer in it? The package had two in it. I just did not want to open it to see if it had any in it.

    I posted this on another thread but here's the needle bearing kit install on the lower shock eye



    That was done tonight so I don't have any ride time on it yet. I did have ride time on the x2 as mentioned earlier but I was having too much fun to snap a pic... I'll get one soon.

    I have read in the CC-Lounge, Banshee ordered the shock with XV-Can and 1 large spacer in it.

    Great choice on the E4 (I have the same on my Rune).
    They take a little longer to bed in, but when they do, they are outstanding!!!
    Feel is simply amazing!

    Gotta love the Rune. Harder you push it, better it rides

    Here is one muddy pic (the way it should be )


    I'm finally happy with the shock choice.

    Get it, the little thing does wonders. No more mud in the face and i keep it all year round. I already messed up one fork with rock flying up and getting stuck between arch and stanchion, and that just won't do.

    If it came with your Rune then the answer is yes it should have one large volume spacer inside

    I have a Rune v2 with a CCDBA cs and have come across a great deal on a ccdb coil. Without sifting through 200+ pages of this thread, are there many people running a ccdb coil on the Rune? How does it pedal for trail riding? Just want the bike to handle chatter better than is does with the air shock. Cheers

    I ran one! It was good! You can def feel the weight on it though. The fox x2 is what I'm running now and it's out of this world.... Say what you want about it being like the db but it ride much higher in its travel and is active to the slightest touch.

    Something I didn't really realize till now is I'm having a helluva time getting clearance on my chainguide from rubbing the chain. I think when I'm on the 10t and 12t is about the only time the chain doesn't rub.

    I'm running a mrp amg. I'm also 1x11 with a 30t chainring.

    What's everyone using to get the clearance? I am interested in top chainguide and a bashguard. Thanks!

    No ISCG spacers? Try swapping the DS BB spacer to the NDS. A new chainguide won't solve anything, but the new AMg V2 is so nice. It makes everything else look like a dinosaur.

    Are you using a 30t chainring on a 104 bcd spider? Then the chainring is offset inboards to let the chain clear the spidertabs. That messes up the chainline and the clearance to the guide.

    I currently have the spacer on the NDS side so my chainline stays as "good as it gets" for 1x. I actually need the spacer to go on the drive side to make the spacing work well but if I do that then I compromise my shifting pretty badly...

    my crankset is XX1 so currently it's on a spider (whatever SRAM's standard is... I can't keep track of all of these standards!). I haven't needed to get a new chainring yet but spiderless will be my next purchase when it's time...

    Super thrilled to join the Banshee family!! The Jenson deal was just too good to pass on. Nothing done really done on it yet other than a touch of purple here and there. Next upgrades will be a bars, stem, and a Race Face Dropper.

    CCDB Air CS settings for Rune V2: I know there's all the base tune stuff, 17mm sag etc, but I'm interested in what are other people running for psi in the can. I'm 170lbs, and am running 80psi. Anyone else?

    I think Cane Creek say to start at your weight in lbs and minus 20, so you should be running a starting pressure of 150psi and then reduce or increase from there to get your 17mm of sag.
    I am running just under 150psi and weigh about 80kg plus gear.

    I'm loving seeing all your runes here... and the great riding spots you have taken them to.

    Just wanted to do a bit of forum research with you all if you don't mind... since you have runes and have had time on them... what is your opinion on the ammount of travel the frame offers. Do you have any desire for more, or for less, or is it just right for you?

    Likewise for geometry... any changes you would like to see in future itterations?

    Any feedback would be much appreciated!

    Hi keith,

    of course we don't mind. you are the founder after all..

    in my opinion
    1) amount of travel - it is just right for me. if i want more, i'll opt for darkside and i dont want any less than rune's travel. I might try to fit 170mm fork in the near future as currently im using 160mm pike.and we'll see how it goes.

    2)Geometry - i own 2015 rune frame. i love it very much. i tried 2016 frame about 2 weeks ago and it feels strange. or awkward. mayb because im just 165cm tall so it just like the 2016 does not suit me. btw, no complain on my 2015 frame

    Great bike Keith. I've been complete happy with mine and have put it through more than I ever thought I was capable for.

    I would like to see the travel up to 165 mm. It would really distinguish itself from the spitfire where right now it's hard to make that decision.

    I think HA is bang on. A few mm shorter chainstay couldn't hurt but I absolutely love how the wheelbase is more than 1200 mm.

    Reach and Stack is bang on for me so I don't have an opinion about that.

    Thanks for your hard work!

    Likewise for geometry... any changes you would like to see in future itterations?

    Any feedback would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Keith
    First of all, thanks for making such an awesome bike!!

    In my opinion travelwise it's fine, 5mm up or down does not change things dramatically, the only thing I will change would be the leverage ratio to a slightly more progressive end of stroke.

    Geometrically, just needs a lower bb and shorter chainstays to make it more manoeuvrable on thigh turns, to me that the only weak point in terms of geometry, everything else is spot on!

    For the new rune I like to see a fixed Geo, no more flip chips, to make the bike lighter, just a one piece rear triangle, that would make the rear end even more stiff??

    Nice to see the guys behind the bike around here looking for feedback!!

    Thanks Keith!!

    I was just going to mention the leverage ratio and making it more progressive, however, with the DBAIR you can add bands to make it progressive. The geo on the 2016 seems pretty good. I have a 2014 and been very happy with.

    I personally love the flip chips and different axle options that all the Banshee have. It gives us options and who doesn't like options. Another reason why it's great is where I ride, there are places with ledges and rocks that constantly hit my pedals on low BB setting, so on those days I flip the chips to the high position. On flow and fast trail where I'm going to rail the corners, I flip it to the low setting. It's so versatile! I don't think it will save that much weight going to a one piece triangle. Mine weighs 30.5 pounds and that's reasonable for burly bike. If I want light, I'll buy a less capable bike with less travel.

    I guess the only change that others have also mentioned is making the chain stays a bit shorter. Oh, and bring back the raw finish. I love that industrial steam punk look that my bike has.

    You created a great bike Keith and not much needs to be changed.

    TBH I was all about the short chainstay till I went 650b and noticed it climbs better and really didn't effect it any other way. I ride a lot of tight trails and I didn't notice the extra length.

    The only thing I really wish for is a more upright seatpost to make it a bit better of a climber and shove the front end out a bit more to compensate for it. I should probably be on a XL frame though. Some added clearance at the drive side would be nice, my chain guard got chewed through and the chainstay is chewed up pretty good.

    Keith,

    Love my 2014 Rune (still 26"!) , the reach was a little short but I think the 16's have hit the mark. As far as rear travel i think 160 is great, I don know that increasing it would do much. Like most the others said, I think a shorter chainstay would be great, and as much as I like 26" it's slowly going the way of the dodo. I think designing for strictly 650b is the way to go. Maybe offer drop out options that are longer for those who prefer a longer chainstay. Just another way for riders to fine tune their geometry. Head angle is spot on. I'd like to see maybe designing for a 170mm fork and still maintaining a nice low BB with 650b wheels. Lastly, with the advent of longer travel (170+mm) dropper post, maybe shorten the seat tubes, so riders can select frames more on reach. As stated earlier, a more progressive ratio (not to much so riders can still use air shocks) to make the frame more coil friendly, esp for us heavier riders.

    Thanks for making awesome bikes and it's sweet that you are asking the riders, that's why Banshee is the best bike company.

    Very Respectfully,
    Mike

    Of course, it's a Banshee Rune in Rune habitat! Enjoy the ride, my friend!

    My V1 dreams of Whistler! Instead he gets to rip Keystone and Valhalla...

    Wish list for the Rune vs my 13 V2

    Longer reach/TT, drop some weight, a bit more upright seat post. Honestly I LOVE my Rune and not being able to ride it right now I miss it. It is a bit hefty though and isn't a great climber. Its the no.1 weapon of choice though on the downs where I really want to be anyways

    Rune all day, every day! @builttoride here's my wishlist:

    1) Bring back a Raw color option
    2) it would be nice to be able to hide all the cables within the frame
    3) Maybe, just maybe, one could think about removing the options to fit in different wheel sizes and adjusting the geometry and benefit from lower weight (keep the HA at 64,5 then, it rides like a dream)
    4) Shorter chainstays would be nice

    If I could pick two of the above, I'd say 1) and 2) are on my wishlist!
