    Can't say for sure on the Rune, but E13 chainguides clear the KS link on my Prime, but MRP's were a no go.

    I think the xtr mid cage is slightly longer than the Zee FR cage. When I install my mid cage SLX the chain clears the stay by about 1mm. With the zee it touches in the 36t and the 11t (when the derailleur arm is at its flattest extremes).

    Oh also your G2 will be larger than mine if you're running a 38t (36-40) so your pulley will sit lower. I'm running the mini G2 (32-36).

    Im thinking it's the combo of those two factors that let's yours works.

    I'd like to run an Avid Elixir with 185 mm as the rear brake for my Rune V2. Can anyone tell me what size the rear rotors may be before voiding the warranty? Would - theoretically - 200 mm still be okay? I know that the brake is attached to the droupouts which can be changed rather quickly in case anything goes wrong, however I'd like to be sure before assembling anything which is not covered under warranty.

    Then: I've registered my Rune over at bansheebikes.com and have not received a confirmation mail. Anyone registered their ride using the web form and received any answer?

    Most insightful! Looking fwd to the overview of the bike itself! Hoping Vital will do a test on the Spitfire/Rune also.

    Enjoyed reading this: we can only describe as the most capable air shock we've ever ridden, and we'd even go so far as to say that the DBair and 160mm travel Banshee Rune combo is a step ahead of pretty much any coil-sprung bike of similar size that we've spent time on
    I am also waiting for the bikes review, they tested it with 650 ...

    Ok great. Now I might just have to sell both my Elka and the Fox CTD to fund one of these DB Airs. Thing looks like it could be a good replacement. Anyone know what the weight difference between the Fox CTD and the DB Air is?

    Can anyone with a medium give me a rough idea of how long the steerer is on their forks?

    ideally with an idea of the amount of spacers you are using etc, or even a pic of the setup.

    Reason I ask is I have found a immaculate pair of 2012 Lyriks but the steerer is 185mm and I am wary of it being too short.

    That stuff is easy to figure out, just measure the height of your stem, add the head tube and add 1/4" of spacers for the heck of it.
    Spacers vary from person to person depending on you size, bike size, the terrain your riding etc.

    Oh and forks don't come in pairs.

    Sorry should have clarified.. I dont have the frame yet, so I cant measure the headtube... I can't find that measurement anywhere.

So I had to remove the guide pulley and re-install my Bionicon guide. Works perfect, but isnt ideal.
    You could pickup the medium-angle backplate we make for the Mini G2SL ISCG-05 - that should solve the problem.

    We also make the S4 guide, that should work well on the Rune, as will the new AMg. The Mini G3 fits, but just barely. I dunno about Micro, but my gut says it should work. I'll ask our UK distributor ISON, they also do Banshee now.

    Nice ride!

Think the suspension kinematics might possibly be optimized and tuned around the neutral setting. Just a guess, but that is my observation so far. I may go back to the slack setting for annual bike park trip this summer.
    tending towards that opinion as well... the bike rides beautifully in neutral setting with 170mm lyrik (no angle set)
    with slack setting, it seems a bit exegerated geometrywise... but I need a bit more testing...

    It would be great if you can compare the Cube Fritzz with Rune v2!

    I'm currently riding a Fritzz and thinking of buying a Rune v2.

    ISON, the UK distributor are telling people you dont get a choice, just 142, buy the others for 80 if you dont want 142. Is this right?

    I got the Banshee Rune with the CCDB Air and I finished building the frame today. I was about to go ride it tomorrow for the first time but I noticed some tolerance in the rear bushing of the CCDB. I can easily reproduce it when I lift the bike holding one hand at the seat tube. Is this a known problem? Is this an issue after all?
