    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...

    Anyone here riding an extra large rune? If so how tall are you? Currently on 2014 large and upgrading to the current model. I want an extra large as the seat tube on current large is 20mm shorter than mine and i have too much exposed dropper post on my current rig. It is at minimum insertion (125mm dropper). The extra large has a 20mm longer seat tube and i figure if i get a 150mm dropper i can run it slammed to the collar.

    I'm 6'0" (35" inseam) and ride an XL 2016. It's got gobs of stand-over clearance and a loooong reach. I like it that way; very roomy.

    Hello all ! Finally after reading all comments here im sure to try a rune !
    I got a decent deal on an used rune from 2013. From what i can see compared to the newer ones the differences are a sligth headangle diff, bb height, and a bit of reach.

    I was thinking about putting an angleset in to get the frame closer to the 2016 geo, (im gonna run a dvo diamond with a-c = 555mm so i guess the angle set will drop the bb a little down towards the "standard" height with 545 a-c. (Im affraid the 10mm longer fork compared to the geo chart will get the bb a little to high ?) I ride in plain forrest with very little stuff to bash the bb. Mostly plain jumps and drops, very few rocks, so i guess a low bb is not going to hurt me?

    Does this sound ok or just pointless .?

    The build will be:
    -Rune v2 2013 medium (currently yellow/green scheme, maybe a respray to matt black.
    -Dvo diamond fork
    -Rs monarch+ (for now, will get a dvo jade before next summer)
    -Gx 1x11 gear
    -Hope tech 3 e4 brakes
    -Hope4 hubs with funworks trackmac rim
    -Dropper, hmm havent deceided yet
    -Wtb buddy newman limited edition saddle.

    Will post pic when the build is rideable

    So i am building up a new xl rune after a number of years on a 2014 rune. I am a fan of wide rubber, i have been running a 2.5wt dhf on the front and a 2.4 ardent on 35 mm internal rims. I am hoping to run a 2.6 dhf wt tyres front and rear on the new frame. Anyone here running a 2.6 minion in their rune? What is clearance like? I think that 2.5 is the maximum recommended due to mud clearance. Just after some real world experience with this tyre size. Cheers

    @Kaptain Lurpak - I have a 2013 Rune also (26") and run a 170mm Marzocchi 55 Ti EVO fork with no angleset, and in slack setting. Fork also has a 555mm a-c length. It kicks ass like that and I certainly don't feel the need to lower the BB or slacken the head angle any further. A little more reach would be nice (large frame, I'm 183cm tall), but an angle set won't help with that. Maybe try without the angleset first in the slack setting and see if you like it.

    thedrizzle I'm running a 2.6 dhf front and back on my 2013 Rune with no clearance issues. Those are on Easton ARC30 rims.

    Thanks mate!

    I know it will fit the fork as it is boost (cane creek helm). You got a photo of the clearance in the rear? And overall with the fat rubber?

    Unfortunately I don't have a clearance shot but here's an overall.

    Does someone know where to get a set of new flip chips ? i can only find them with purchase of a new rear dropout and it seems a little overkill just to get the chips.

    If you want coil, get the jade! The bladder system creates a smooth transition from compression to rebound. It takes big hits very well; I'm 230 lbs geared and a 8-10 foot drop is no problem.

    I can only attest to the stock low setting and it's leverage rate. I'm currently playing with some modifications... so far so good... time will tell.

    Exactly because of the bladder system i wanted to go jade! ( I also have a diamond and love it and their filosofi around service etc)
    And i was curious about bigger drops, i had a tendency on my old bike to bottom out hard even though a high pressure (bos vipr)
    But it sound like the jade is tuneable to get a perfect fit.
    Also where i ride we have rather plain ground but when we have downhill parts they are rough and fun.

    For bottoming out with the rune, I think air works better unless you get a bottom out assist like xfusion vector coil. But with the jade you get midstroke support that aids in getting support throughout the travel not just a big ramp up at the end.

    I had similar experiences with my DB Coil Inline on my Spitty. After 70-80% travel, she just kept sinking. Moved back to air.

    Somewhat related I noticed Push offers the 11-6 for these bikes. Kind of surprised I haven't seen a bunch of chatter about this since lots of Banshee riders toy with coils. May just be too $$?

    the thing I have concluded is that for racing enduro, if you set your coil spring rate properly for good traction, you dont need support for bottom out on big jumps.. there are not many big jumps normally....whereas for DH racing or at your DH/trail loop with lots of jumps and hucks you start complaining about lack of bottom out control... with coil you just get tons of traction and compromise with spring rate for not-so-progressive leverage rate curves..

    I've never had luck on DB products. They always blew through the travel and had that on off feel. I originally had the db coil but switched out of that almost immediately regretting my purchase.

    I think push products are great. If it wasn't for my recent 36 mod I prob would have purchased the coil conversion but I've been able to play with three different shocks for the price of the 11-6. All with how I intended the rune to act. The 11-6 is just too much money for someone like me who like to tinker with things.

    Hmmm. Hard choise then,
    Alot of our fun trails in denmark have small parts with drops in the height of 1-1.5m, but not many, most of the trail is roots, small jumps and drops.
    Our "dh" parks are smooth landings and so.

    Guess a coil would be ok then ?
    And when i go south for shuttle runs i could just swap to my monarch+ if i bottom out alot on a jade ?

    COmpromises man.. When i bottom out on a canecreek air, that just hurts... bottoming out on a coil dvo jade, not harsh... as I said I know some "pros" running CC db coil on Runes and it seems to work for them... it is expensive to try out things sometimes until you find what suits you. I have a Darkside that came with CC DB air and it amazing for big jumps, and hucks, but that bike with a DVO Jade its just butter..

    Agreed with Luis here. Add on the ability to self maintain and modify the jades shim stack(not that it's needed) is an added plus!

    Thats also exactly a part i love about dvo... The user is in mind when they made the product ! The service on my diamond is so easy, and they support is wow...

    Btw i love you mention butter luisgutierod, "Lurpak" is danish prime butter, im a fan of it,
    So you just sold it for me. Jade it is.
    Have to try it.
    Just got my diamond all tuned in with some extra oil in the air chamber and its out of this world now. Of the jade is the same im sleeping with the bike from then on.

    Impossible to do on a medium size frame. The other day I vÍ seen some interesting stuff, a cage with 2 side supports, bottle on the right, tools on the left. Sadly, price was steep, and I can't remember the brand.

    Never tried coil on my rune, but after 4 diferent rear shocks and set up experiences I am happy with a bos kirk.
