    Finished my 4th Rune last week. Clocking in at 14.3 kg. Looking forward to changing cranksets and the casette for saving weight. Current goal: sub 14kg. Wheels are rather heavy and the reverb with its 170mm, too.

    Can somebody with a 2016 rune check to see which side of the lower pivot the RS marking is supposed to be on. I don't think it matters which side of the upper pivot the R is on but check that as well.

    I am 6'2" and the frame feels perfect.
    I'm 6'2" as well but on a large, I've always wondered if an xl would suit me better

    Just curious, what qualifies as a good deal on an elevensix?

    I went with what i knew would fit the rear. I would love to run the wider Flows with some 2.8 tires but not entirely certain they will fit the rear.

    I'm building a 17 rune up with 2.6 inch specialized tires, they fit the chain stays with no issues, the linkage is pretty tight but I'll wrap it with something. I put a maxxis 2.5 dhf wt in just for comparison and they aren't quite as tall so 2.8's may work. Honestly though the new 2.6 specialized tires in the grid casing are amazing, and cheaper than the rest. Insane grip and no noticeable bounce like some of the bigger tires out there.

    ^^good to know. I came from a 650b plus bike with 3.0 wide tires which was pretty cool. I would love to build another wider wheel set with wider tires to switch back and forth.

    Can someone help me out? Still waiting for the 20mm bushing from Cane Creek, so I used a bushing from Rock Show which fits nice. I'm still having spacers from Cane Creek which I'd like to use, however, I'm not sure which one to apply to the bushing. Can someone measure them for me if anyone is riding this setup?

    What is the fox shock hardware needed for the rune? I can't see any 40x8 or 20x8 sizes, they all seem to be imperial widths Fox Shox Polymer Du Bushing Reducer Kit > Components > Forks & Suspension > Service Kits & Parts | Jenson USA

    Are you building a 2017? 39.88 will be fine for the triangle end.

    19.05mm will work on the front... although would be better if Fox would offer metric sizing more readily to be honest.

    $1050 AUD - had to buy with the frame to get that price. They retail for about $1700 AUD in Australia.

    Can/should I just use the rockshox hardware? Squeezing the front mount by 1mm sounds a bit ghetto, I'd rather stick two 0.5mm washers in. Or maybe I should consider another shock?

    I picked up some 8mm ID shims from eBay. These shims are used for shimming the differentials for rc cars.

    My advice would be to use the 20mm length axle that comes with the RS shocks and replace the 2 outer spacers with Cane Creek spacers. They are 2.5mm or 3mm wide, many Cane Creek hardware kits will stack these spacers in order to get the final width needed. Unlike the included RS spacers, the ID is properly sized and will not rattle around the axle.

    If you're starting from scratch and did not purchase a shock with the frame, you can:
    1. Have Cane Creek cut hardware to 20mm.
    2. Use Manitou's m8x20mm 2-piece hardware (Manitou part #:85-6256, available through BTI)
    3. Use 19mm hardware

    I am not sure how geometry works that much but if I went from my 170mm RC3 55 fork to a 150mm or even a 160mm 27.5" fork but kept my 26" wheels with my V2 Rune, would the bottom bracket lower that much? I am in need of a new fork but it seems most of the forks out there these days are for 27.5" wheels and I do not want to have to buy a new wheel set.

    I would research what the A-C distance is between forks. If you keep that the same then your geometry won't change.

    Dumb question but I'm sure I'm just looking too hard for it and it's probably staring at me right in face. But how the heck do you change the geo setting on a 16 Rune?? My old Megatrail had one bolt to change out near the shock to make it slacker. I don't see anything that's changeable on the bike. And I don't see any information regarding how to do it.

    Check the rear dropouts. There are two bolts on each side. Remove them and flip the chips around.

    Awesome thanks guys so I'm guessing you need another chipset for the neutral setting?? I only have the chip that goes high or low. Excited to get some time on her. The brakes barely work but thankfully there sending me a brand new set.

    The 2017 frames only have a high or low setting. They're actually just the neutral and low setting from the 2016 frame.

    That's a 2016 frame with v1 dropouts, not a current 2017 with v2 dropouts. Send us an email, we might be able to scrounge some neutral chips up.

    I was kidding, to each their own. 26" def helps keep that bb height at a reasonable level. I bet it's a blast

    Banshee Rune V2 Build Thread

    Hey guys thanks for the replies! Finally got the bike dialed and set her into the low setting. I was pretty impressed the bike felt good even with it being slacked out that much. Though, the Pike 160 doesn't match the DB Air CS at all and will need to be changed out for a Lyrik 180/150. Though, I'm tempted to try out the Suntour Durolux 180 since they have a free demo program to try it out for three weeks. Anybody have any experience on one??? Also, I'm running Nobby Nic's 2.6 and really like them so far. Feels like I'm riding a monster truck!

    I have a Durolux r2c2 180 on mine. The fork is stiff and does not deflect at all. It was the hardest fork I have ever experienced to get dialed due to the lack of instructions online. However, I copied some settings that a reviewer wrote down on NSMB, I believe, and now the fork works like a champ.

    I have a 2013 Rune V2, no drink bottle cage mounts. The newer ones have mounts under the frame. Anyone know if I can just drill and tap a couple of holes in my downtube and mount a cage, or would this be a dumb idea? Any alternative suggestions?

    LBS should be able to install rivnuts for ya. Can't simply drill/tap cause there isn't enough meat in the frame tube to hold a bottle.

    Rivet on one end and nut on the other. Most bikes either have em or have a braze on of sorts out of the factory.

    Bought a 2016 New in February 17 for an absurd price. Nerds love numbers: like head and seat tube angles, 7000 series aluminum, loooooong top tube, axle path, spring curve. But more importantly, it's a hoot to ride. CCDBIL is poop. Reverb is poop. Race Face wheels are poop. Pike RC3 is OK.. Those can, and will be replaced. But, what a wonderful bike.

    I never got along with the cane creek stuff. I would just blow through the travel. Agree with you on reverb. Currently on Easton arc30 (same as race face), it's still holding on.

    Pike is poop but I do have it on my hard tail with a corps ring luftkappe and that's made it barable...
