    Interesting, that's more or less as me. When did you find it short, going up or coming down? What stem where you running and what do you plan to run on M sized one?

    Anyone know what size volume spacer is in the Fox CTD that comes with the Rune?

    How do these feel in comparison to an SB66?

    I want a bike when fitted with different wheels/forks, can go for a comfortable few hour pedal in the hills and can survive bike park hucks all day.

    I currently have a Alu SB66 in small, my shortlist is -

    1. SB66 carbon med (larger size for stability, carbon for strength and weight)
    2. Banshee rune v2 Med (stability and strength, saves money)

    How ell do these runes go uphill, anywhere near approaching an SB66, particularly out of the saddle?

    RUNE 2014 - Seatpost Question

    Hi All , just ordered a Flouro Green 2014 XL Frame , very exited to get it but have a few weeks to wait. In the meantime I need to get all the other bits together.

    Will the 150mm RockShox Reverb Stealth fit comfortably (i.e. not much sticking out of the top tube.) I like to run my seat as low as possible. I guess what Im really asking is what is the length of the reverb below the collar, and will this fit in the XL seatube.
    Bear in mind the total length is 430mm

    Thanks
    Dale

    On a large frame you can insert the seatpost about 300mm so I would guess even more on a XL.

    As far as I know, the Reverb isn´t available in 150mm for 30,9mm diameter anymore?!

    Was running a 50mm Thomson stem and it felt short coming down. Will be running a 50mm on the medium.

    One question for the Banshee people.
    Would it be possible in a Banshee Rune V2 2013 to make (professionaly) drilling the seat tube in order to use the reverb stealth ?

    Yes! Look a few Pages back in the "2013 Spitfire-Thread" ...

    In most frames there is no need to drill anything if you want to run a stealth seatpost. Check for a hole into the bottom of the seat tube from above the BB pivot. You can run a stealth routing through this without any issues. Drilling a hole in the frame will void warranty I'm afraid, as it is to be reinforced and drilling has to be temperature controlled, or frame re heat treated to ensure strength remains.

    Oh well, good Info Keith. There were Rumors that adequate done Drilling in the right Place would cause no Trouble to the Frame!

    @ Jalafer
    Please check the 2013 Spitfire again, because someone did the Cable-Routing the way described by Keith, including Pictures!

    I have one on last year's Rune V2, and it fits perfectly. The LG1+ came with 2 different sized spacers, but one was a little too thin and one a little too thick. I just got some washers from home depot (size M6), which was the perfect size to keep the chain from rubbing against the plastic when on the smallest or largest cog.

    I recently put a lg1 tr on my rune.
    Had to put the lower pulley to the wide angle setting.
    Went on nicely.

    How did it get so light weight? My '14 Spitty with carbon wheels is heavier. Ok, a bit heavier fork, but still. (ok, and a large frame)

    Keith, please phone Jay and tell him to find out where my frame went or have him send another frame ASAP.

    I've now waited three weeks for a frame that had 10 day delivery time, the parcel is missing and nobody seems to know where it is. To my opinion that is Banshee's problem and you can sort it out as long as you like but do not expect me to wait too.

    I want value for the money I've payed.

    I've spoken to Jay and he is chasing up the shippers for you for info... he said he would email you with an update when he had it. We suspect that it is stuck in customs.

    Great, if customs are the hold up reason I trust that it gets solved soon, Thank you Keith!

    BTW, that orange color is even more brutal as the green I ordered, can't you people announce the *special* -colors at your front page, so that it would be possible to order one

    Probably as iv tried to save weight everywhere mate but keep it strong also. Easton Havoc Carbon bars, xx1, Crossmax Enduro wheels, really light pike fork and even the XO trail carbon brakes are silly light.

    Is your build on he spitty similar?

    All the best,

    Added you mate,
    leejords

    You got a 2013 spitty or 14? Heard the 14 frames have shed a bit of weight, or so the distributor for the Uk told me.

    All the best,

    Hi Keith,

    Please can you tell me what is the best choice between a 30T ring and a 32T ring for the Rune v2 if I want to go on 1x10 speeds ?

    I will have a 11-42 cog on the rear and want to have the best ring on the front for the KS-Link kinematic.

    Thanks.

    I run 32t up front and 11-42t 10speed in the rear with no issues.

    If you are on 26" wheels, than 30t might be a bit small?!

    Ok
    I don't know which is better for the KS Link.

    It's your first transmission on the Rune v2?

    I think the rune is built around 34-36 and prime 32t

    As with any design, there is no magic chainring size number (no matter what people tell you) as it changes depending on how much sag you run, and what gear you are in... that said the optimal range for spitfire and rune is roughly 30-36 tooth (26-32 for prime), so you can go anywhere in this range. Personally I have 34 tooth chainring with XX1 setup on my spitfire and like that... but I've never been a spinner.

    Ok thanks, I will try the two sizes on the bike. With some bikes (like the Legend) there is more or less kickback depending on the selected ring.

    Ok I have a 2x10v = 24x38t ; 11-36t on my Rune v2 and I'm waiting for my new transmission 1x10v = 32t ; 11-42t. I hope the 32t will not be too hard when i have to climb long time on the bike.

    What do you feel with the 32t ? Do you have enough speed when downhill and it's not too hard when you uphill ?

    Assuming you're on 26" wheels your current range is around 17-90 gear inches.

    With a 32t front ring you'll be getting around 19-75 on an 11-42 cassette.
    With a 30t front ring it'll be 18-72

    On with your low end gears you'll have pretty much the same climbing ability as your 2x10 setup, where you'll notice the difference more is top end speed.

    Hi inkisink,
    yes I'm in 26" wheels. Thanks for your answer there is not much difference between a 30t and a 32t for climbing so I will buy a 32t for my first test.
